Week 16 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Early Espresso

Colour Creations 300

Early Espresso

 

Here's my card for this week, using one of my all time favourite Christmas colour combinations: Early Espresso, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake. I have used the Festive Farmhouse Suite from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Catalogue.

I definitely wouldn't call this a 'do in bulk' Christmas card, but I had lots of fun making the Christmas farmhouse scene and doing the paper piecing on the house. I used two different sheets of the Wood Texture 6x6" DSP pack for the house, with the darker sheet for the roof and shutters. I love the fence and all the bits and pieces that come in the Framelits.

Week 15 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Daffodil Delight

Colour Creations 300

Daffodil Delight

Hey there, it's time for some more Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations inspiration. This week we are playing with another yellow, Daffodil Delight. I am totally in love with a couple of the country themed products in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. The Country Home stamp set is a lovely set to colour, and the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder has been flying off the shelves.

Stampin' Up! Country Home stamp set coloured with Stampin Blends. Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I have used the following Stampin' Blends to colour the image:

  • Smoky Slate combo
  • Crumb Cake Combo
  • Old Olve Combo
  • Daffodil Delight Combo
  • Lovely Lipstick Combo

After I embossed the Smoky Slate cardstock with the Tin Tile embossing folder, I rubbed some Smoky Slate ink over the top with a Stampin' Sponge. The little scalloped piece I have used at the join of the Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate cardstock, is a piece from the Laser Cur specialty paper which I sponged Basic Grey ink onto using a sponge dauber.

Here's my colour combination for today:

My greeting is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set. I seem to use that a lot! This photo shows the subtle embossing I have done on the Daffodil Delight piece as well, This was using the very approriately named Subtle Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder, which gives a lovely textured look. This is great when you want to dress up a piece of cardstock, just a little bit.

Here's a look at the beautiful Country Home stamp set. It's photopolymer, so super easy to line up the flowers and the jugs.

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.

Stampin Up Celebrate Thinlits and Very Vintage stamp set 2018 Annual Catalogue card. Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

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.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Week 12 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Coastal Cabana

Who's for playing with a lovely sunny blue this week, in Coastal Cabana? I love this blue and was so happy to see it back this year with the Stampin' Up! Colour Revamp.

Coastal Cabana

Coastal Cabana 2

 Here's my card for this week. Coastal Cabana and silver make a fabulous combination for Christmas cards don't you think?

  2018 Stampin Up Holiday Catalogue Beautiful Baubles coloured with Stampin Blends. Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

I've used the Beautiful Baubles stamp set, with Coastal Cabana and Silver Glimmer Paper (oh my goodness, you should check out our new and improved glimmer paper - NO MESS, and it also cuts beautifully in the Big Shot now. I LOVE IT. Find it HERE in the online store).

It was so much fun colouring the different baubles in with the Stampin' Blends. Stampin' Blends alcohol markers are perfect when you want blendable saturated colour. Just remember to stamp your image in Memento Black Ink so you don't get any running of the image. Here are the colours of the Stampin' Blends I used (you can buy Stampin' blends individually, or in light and dark combination for each colour. See them all HERE in my online store.

  • Light Soft Sea Foam
  • Dark Soft Sea Foam
  • Light Mint Macaron
  • Light Pool Party
  • Dark Pool Party
  • Light Bermuda Bay
  • Light Smoky Slate

I hope you have enjoyed today's Colour Creations card. Now it's time to head back to Catherine Proctors blog to see who else is playing along this week.

If you are new to Stampin' Up! in Australia, or don't have a demonstrator, don't forget to request a 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue from me. It starts August 5th, but I'm mailing them out over the coming week (if you have a regular demonstrator, please ask them for a catalogue).
