Lovely You Stitched Heart Triangle Panel Card

by Joanne James10. July 2020 20:47

Today I'm sharing a card that started out with the colour palette over at CAS Colours and Sketches and Lee Ann's sketch this week over at Freshly Made Sketches:


I ended up creating a sheet of my own DSP too so will also be linking up over at the new-to-me challenge The Spot too. Here's my card: 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Lovely You DSP - I was immediately drawn to the CAS Colours and Sketches colour palette this week as I'm a big fan of Brights and whilst Pacific Point was one of the three ink pads that I first purchased when I was new to Stampin' Up! so many years ago, it's a colour I don't often use these days. I would never have chosen this trio of colours to work with, but I absolutely love the vibrant, bright combination and will definitely use it again. I held an online class featuring the 'Lovely you' stamp set earlier this week and as is my 'new normal' since my move to online classes, I always host a number of additional demonstration sessions in between classes for anyone to attend that use the same set and highlight other ways it can be used. In our class we created a DSP using one colour per stamp then created a one sheet wonder set of cards, by cutting our DSP in a certain way to give various panels. I wanted to show that these stamps would also be great as multi-coloured images using Stampin' Write markers to colour each of the parts of the flowers on each stamp with a different colour. I shared a sample I made earlier in the week using this technique for a single flower (if you missed it you can see that card that I posted earlier this week here) and knew that these more intense colours would work to great effect and work for the same idea of creating your own piece of patterned paper. Here's my finished paper before I cut it into sections:


Stampin' Write Markers Two Ways - In addition to inking the individual flower elements, I also used my Stampin' Write markers to ink my sentiment easily using two different colours, highlighting the word 'heart' in Gorgeous Grape - this is so much easier to do with a marker than with ink pads.  

A Stitched Heart - I decided this sentiment would work perfectly in a heart shape, so created an outlined heart using my Stitched Be Mine dies. I need to shorten my sentiment to fit it into my heart, so inked it twice in stages and stamped it in such a way that it would both fit into the heart shape and accommodate a fussy cut flower for decoration - you can see the detail below:


Finally I added a couple of blue sequins and a white twine bow to complete the decoration on my card. 

I actually made two cards, since once that rectangle was cut into triangles I had another 2 opposing triangles and didn't want to let them go to waste so made a second card too with an identical centrepiece:


Here are both cards together:


I finished these cards and love them - they are so me!! Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:


You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

Lastly, I've been experimenting with some video lately and I did make a little time lapse video (no audio - that proved a little too challenging for my technical skills!) that shows how I put my card together:

Do you find this kind of thing useful? I'd be really interested to know whether this is the kind of thing you would like to see more of. 

Enjoy your day - the sun is shining here - finally! - so I may do some gardening, combined with a little cooking later on. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

Loved the card and the time-lapse video! At least you know how to do that!  This would be a great project for The Spot's challenge this week, which is to make your own DSP!  I especially love that you still use your do I!!! The colors are perfect and those little flowers are the reason I bought this set!  It looks great with that sentiment and the heart too!

Can't beat a Stamp-a-ma-jig in my book LeAnne - still a much loved useful tool that I often reach for!

Oh Joanne, you are so clever doing all three challenges in one card.   I just commented to another player from The Spot that I don't use my markers very often and here is another example that I need to use them more often. I have not coloured direct to rubber for years, I forget how effective it looks.

Thank you for playing with us at The Spot this week, we release a new challenge every Tuesday and would be delighted to have you back playing again.

I really loved the end result Teneale and 'The Spot' was a good find as I love a challenge for inspiration! I have added to my reading list so will be sure to play along.

Beautiful cards; that heart shape works so well at the intersection of the triangles.  Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

I love the bright pattern you made with your stamps Joanne. Perfect choice of colours too and bravo for making the sketch work beautifully - I saw it and chickened out!

I very rarely watch videos, and am much happier to read text and examine still pictures! I don't think most people feel this way though :/

Hope you enjoyed your gardening and cooking! Vicky x
