Hello and welcome to the final instalment of my Granny Apple Green Colour Challenge. As there are 5 Tuesday in June, you get a bonus project this month! If you have missed the previous Granny Apple Green Colour Challenges, you can find them here… Week 1, Week 2, Week 3 and Week 4.

Stampin' Up! Meant To Be Watercolour Gift Tag by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it…

The gift tag base is created from a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolour cardstock measuring 10 x 5 cm. This is then shaped using the Scalloped Tag Topper and Detailed Trio Punches.

I applied water to the tag using a Water Painter and then applied Granny Apple Green, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight inks, allowing them to blend slightly.

The striped heart from the Meant To Be Stamp Set is stamped three times, in Granny Apple Green, Just Jade and Misty Moonlight ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the coordinating Stitched Be Mine Die.

The sentiment is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto Misty Moonlight cardstock and cut out using a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Die Set. One of the hearts is adhered to the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The whole piece os then adhered to the tag using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The remaining hearts are adhered to the tag using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the final touch is provided by a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Granny Apple Green Colour Challenge 3

Hello and welcome to Week 3 of my Stampin’ Up! Granny Apple Green Colour Challenge. If you missed my first two projects you can find them here… Week 1, Week 2. Today I will be sharing with you a Stampin’ Up! Pattern Play Card.

Today’s colour combination is: Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather. I decided to use the Pattern Play Stamp Set as it is one of my current favourites and lends itself well to bright, colourful cards.

Stampin' Up! Pattern Play Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Granny Apple Green cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm.

The two different heart stamps from the set are stamped repeatedly in the challenge colours (Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue and Highland Heather) onto the card front.

A length of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon has been coloured using Granny Apple Green and Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends, wrapped around the card front and secured at the back using Tear & Tape.

The sentiment is stamped in Highland Heather ink onto Whisper White cardstock. Extra decoration is added by stamping one of the other images from the set in Granny Apple Green ink. The sentiment is then cut out using one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. A larger die is used to cut out a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and these pieces are layered together and adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels which have been coloured using the Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends.

What do you think to my Pattern Play Card?

I love my Colour Challenges as it means that I use combinations that I wouldn’t generally choose. Balmy Blue and Highland Heather are a great pairing but I don’t think I had added Granny Apple Green along with them until now! Do you like my Pattern Play Card?

Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you this Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Card created using the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. This is a quick and simple card to make but the addition of the embossed background really makes it look wonderful.

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a 14.4 x 10 cm layer of Highland Heather cardstock. The main card front is a 13.9 x 9.5 cm piece of Whisper White cardstock which has been embossed using the Stampin’ Up! Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder.

The butterflies are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then ‘in-filled’ using Highland Heather ink. Butterfly Gala is a Two-Step Stamp Set so you get extra stamps to effectively colour in your images! See my video on different types of Stamp Sets for more information. The butterfly bodies are also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then the Butterfly Duet Punch was used to cut the images out. The large butterfly is adhered directly to the card front.

The sentiment is stamped in Highland Heather ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. A smaller die is used to cut out a piece of Highland Heather cardstock and these are layered together using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The small butterfly is adhered to the corner of the sentiment piece and the whole thing adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Glitter Enamel Dots.

SU Pressed Petals DSP Card

Hello and welcome. I really wanted to create a card the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Pressed Petals Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP) but I couldn’t decided which designs to feature! There are so many fabulous images to choose from. I decided to design a card which could feature as many as possible!

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Crumb Cake cardstock and this is followed by a smaller layer of Mossy Meadow cardstock. I then took two sheets of DSP to create a split-panel for the third layer. The foliage pattern is probably my favourite out of the pack!

The DSP pack also contains sheets which are designed to be cut up and used as toppers and borders. I cut one of these toppers and layered it on to a slightly larger piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.

I cut a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies and adhered this to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The topper is then adhered on top, at an angle.

The sentiment (which is from the Morning Star Stamp Set) is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. A length of Mossy Meadow Linen Thread is wound into loops and adhered to the card using a Mini Glue Dot. The sentiment is then adhered on top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
