Week 18 AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hop - Fresh Fig

  Colour Creations 300

Fresh Fig color

Welcome to week 18 of Colour Creations from the Art with Heart Team. This week's colour is one of the 2017 Incolours, Fresh Frig. It's a beautiful deep colour which I love! It's actually quite similar to the colour of my bridesmaid dresses many years ago. Today I have used it with Soft Sea Foam, Powdered Pink and Bermuda Bay.

I love colouring this bauble. We don't have Fresh Fig or Powdered Pink Stampin' Blends, so I used light Blackberry Bliss and light Flirty Flamingo respectively. I have added some texture after the colouring, by running it through the Subtle embossing folder in the BigShot. The other embossing folder used on the Powder Pink layer is Tufted, which was a new one in this years Annual Catalogue. I have already used it so much!

Stampin' Up! Time for Tea

There's something about a cup of tea isn't there? I think it makes me instantly thing of relaxing, soothing and happy catch ups. I think it's because of this association that I always tend to be drawn to any creative supplies with a tea theme too.

Here's a card I created using the Time for Tea bundle in the 2018/2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Week 14 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Crushed Curry

Colour Creations 300

Crushed Curry

I thought this week was going to be a big challenge for me, but in the end I came up with two cards!

My first card came to me relatively easy, as I had a sponged piece left over from the swap cards I made for the Alaska Stampin' Up! trip. I had used Crushed Curry along with Flirty Flamingo and Rich Razzleberry in the sponged piece, so I cut that down and mounted it onto a card front sized piece of Berry Burst cardstock.

The stamp set I used was Very Vintage (in the Stampin' Reward section of the Annual Catalogue). I stamped this in Berry Burst around the image and then sponged the edges with Rich Razzleberry. I mounted it onto a Rich Razzleberry card, and used Fresh Fig ribbon and twine to embellish, along with some clear Rhinestones which I had coloured with my Stampin' Blends (I used dark Lovely Lipstick and Dark Rich Razzleberry). My greeting is die cut from the Celebrate You thinlits, in Crushed Curry and Rich Razzleberry. Here's my colour combination for this card, and a close up.

I was going to leave it at that, but then I was wandering through IKEA on Saturday, and came across this rug with a colour combination that really caught my eye, so I thought I would try and recreate a similar combination in a card.

Here's what I came up with, but I also added in some Mint Macaron.

I've used lots of different Framelit sets and was definitely inspired by cards I have seen recently by Connie Collins and Vicky Boucher. Thanks for the inspiration ladies (oh and IKEA). Here's my colour combination and a closer look at the layers.

I am really enjoying these Colour Creations colour challenges that the Art With Heart Team girls are participating in each week. We are having lots of team fun, and definitely being pushed right out of our comfort zone. So lucky to have team members who love to have fun creating and sharing with each other.  Now it's time to head back over to the blog of Catherine Proctor, our wonderful blog hop coordinator for Colour Creations, to see the other ladies who are participating this week.

Chat again tomorrow when our wonderful Christmas catalogue goes live!

Week 13 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Crumb Cake

Crumb Cake

Crumb cake 2

Today's card is one of the hard cards we need to make, a sympathy card. Words really are never enough, but they are important to say to the people you care about. I don't think there is any better way to say those words from afar, than with a handmade card.

Stampin Up Rooted in Nature 2018 sympathy card. Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

I have used the Rooted in Nature stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.  I created a water wash onto Shimmery White cardstock with a few drops of re-inker and my aquapainter. I used Crumb Cake for the ground, and Pool Party for the sky and Shaded Spruce for the tree. I added a few ink splatters and water splatters for added interest.

The sentiment is also from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, and is stamped in Soft Suede to stand out a little more against the Crumb Cake. Here is my colour combination.

I hope the recipient of this card can feel the love and caring thoughts for them that it hopefully conveys. 

Now it's time to head back to Catherine Proctor's blog  to see what the other Art With Heart team ladies have been creating with Crumb Cake this week.

'I am' - a traditional scrapbooking layout using (mostly) Stampin' Up! products.

Lately, scrapbooking has been loudly calling me again. I dabble / have dabbled in pocket pages, but my heart belongs to traditional 12 x 12 pages.  

My eldest son snapped this photo of me earlier in the year, and it seemed the perfect photo to get a little grungy with inks and textures. 

 

Stampin' Up! traditional layout using texture paste, Claire Daly Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

Here's the process (I should have used Gesso to seal the page which would have prevented the warping. I was out, so I went head, but will do that next time. It's flattened out fine now though). Bolded words refer to products which are linked to my online store at the end of the page.

  • My base cardstock is Smoky Slate 12x12 Stampin' Up! cardstock.. This one must have been left over from a couple of years ago as it is textured. We have the smooth now which would be fine to use too.
  • I pencilled in approximately where I wanted my picture to go, and then used Silver Embossing Paste with the Palette Knives and brick mask in the Pattern Party Decorative masks. I wasn't particularly worried to get it flat and didn't even fully cover the mask, as I wanted a grungy, random effect with the bricks.
  • I left that to completely dry, and then randomly applied Jet Black Stazon ink direct from the ink pad to dirty the brick texture up a bit.
  • My 5x7" photo is on a mat of Berry Burst A4 cardstock. I've used some of the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape (love the versatility of varying widths of tape in this 5 roll set) to frame the picture at the top and bottom.
  • I've stamped some of the great textures in Timeless Textures stamp set in various spots on my page (I used Memento Black stamped off once). This set is really versatile for scraobooking. Other embellishments  are some Mint Macaron brads (from the Basics Brads set) and Berry Burst punched arrowheads from a retired punch.
  • My title was made using some letters in my stash, as I really wanted to pick up the blue in the photo and they were perfect.

Before I get onto my journaling, here are some close ups.

Then this one (which makes me want to jump into the screen and push that wash tape down properly!).

Here's a closer look at the Timeless Textures stamp set and the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

This all about me page was just about random journalling about who I am, right now. That's not a number or a measurement. Everyone needs to do this kind of journaling. It's so good for the soul. Even if it's just scribbled onto the back of a cafe napkin, just for your eyes. I think all about me pages are one of my favourite types of pages. I used the very cool Swirly Frames stamo set (PERFECT for scrapbooking and great for cards too) for my circular journaling piece. My actual journaling was a compination of my own handwriting (using the Journalling Pens), with the occasional stamped (in Memento Black) word from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.

I hope you have enjoyed this little peek into my scrapbooking process and favourite products. Hope you get to record some memories of your own soon.

See you back here again tomorrow night,

Claire
