Art With Heart Team May Creative Showcase - Sketch Challenge

Welcome to the Monthly Art With Heart Creative Showcase. This month the Art With Heart Team have amazing projects to share with you that have been inspired by the card sketch below. The sketch is to be used as a starting point and has been interpreted in many creative ways by the Art With Heart Team.

I recently just received my BBB (Big Brown Box) with new Stampin’ Up! products from the new Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue 2020 – 2021 Demonstrators can preorder a month before customers. It's so exciting when you receive new goodies!! Customers can order from the 3rd of June 2020.

I’ve used the In Good Taste Suite which is very versatile, you can create your projects into either feminine or masculine. I started with the Tasteful Touches Stamp Set and I was drawn to the flower image, so I inked it up in Night of Navy onto Whisper White Cardstock. I used the Stampin’ Blends in light & dark Seaside Spray and light Night of Navy. There are Dies in the Suite but not for the stamped images, so I fussy cut out the flowers which I don’t mind doing at all.

I’ve used the largest circle die from the Stitched Shapes Dies and die cut out using Seaside Spray Cardstock. I placed the circle in the new Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder which gives you the best texture and I so adore it. I added a little sponging with a Sponge Dauber and Seaside Spray Ink onto the circle.

To create the strip of Night of Navy DSP, I’ve used the branch image and stamped in Night of Navy Ink onto the Cardstock.

I just had to use the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder again, so I placed a panel of Night of Navy Cardstock with the Embossing Folder. I also sponged Night of Navy Ink onto the embossed panel to give the card more depth.

The pressed wood leaf embellishments which are part of the suite are gorgeous and they go so nicely with the colours that I’ve chosen for the card. I was so happy to see the Denim Ribbon return in the Catalogue and it’s a great addition to the card.

The sentiment is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set which fits nicely inside one of the new Tasteful Labels Dies.

The next demonstrator to share her interpretation of the sketch is the fabulous Christina Barnes
