Week 17 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Flirty Flamingo

Hello and welcome to our weekly play with colour! Today, the lovely Catherine has got the Art With Heart team girls playing with Flirty Flamingo. 

Colour Creations 300

Flirty Flamingo

Here is my card for today, a lovely soft combination of Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate.

Flirty Flamingo Country Home watercolor wash card  by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. 2018 Holiday Catalogue, Christmas.

I did two layers on my watercolour wash, with a slightly darker strength in the second wash which I only did close to the image.  After the wash dried, I also flicked a bit of water to add some more interest. I have used some of the beautiful Frosted Floral Specialty Paper from the holiday catalogue as mu backing DSP (this piece is particularly beautiful!), and one of the Chicken Wire elements which adds some more country feel and texture to the card.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today. There are links to the other Flirty Flamingo colour ideas from the Art with Heart team, over on my lovely team member Catherine Proctor's blog. Catherine is our team member who came up with and is coordinating this project for the team this year. I'm so lucky to have so many great team members who pitch in and run things which everyone can enjoy in our team.

Have a great week, and I will see you back here next week with Fresh Fig!

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,

Claire

Week 11 AWH Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations Blog Hop: Cherry Cobbler

Welcome to another week of Colour Creations from the Art With Heart team. This week we are playing with Cherry Cobbler, which is a perfect reason to start my 2018 Christmas cards as well.

Cherry Cobbler

I have used the lovely Blended Seasons bundle again. I'm SO sad I only get to show you this in August, because I totally love it!  It's so perfect for colouring and very versatile for different cards. I love the Framelit shapes too, and that super cool double stitching feature which leaves stitching on the negative piece as well.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons 2018 Christmas Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demo Melbourne Australia.

I had actually meant to pop a metallic pearl or red rhinestone either end of the greeting, but realised while editing that I forgot - oops! What you might be able to see is some of the new Merry Merlot glimmer paper which is coming up in the Holiday Catalogue - love! For the colouring on this one, I have used Blender Pens and the ink from the inside lid of my Classic Ink Pads in Call Me Clover, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler.

I have also used the Sheet Music background stamp in a super haphazard way on the background. To do that:

  1. Ink up your background stamp and lay it inked side up
  2. Press your card front down onto the stamp in various sections, including turning the card on angles and leaving parts out

I hope you like today's card. Don't forget you only have until the end of August to get your hands on the Blended Seasons stamp set and Stitched Seasons Framelits. Check out the links at the end of the post. 

Now it's time to head back to the blog of my lovely team member Catherine Proctor, so you can see the other Cherry Cobbler creations from the Art With Heart Team ladies.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a fabulous week.

Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts

Today I have a sweet coloured card for you using one of the retiring 2018 Occasions Catalogue stamp sets called Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts.

Stampin Up Friendships Sweetest Thoughts crd by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia #stampinup #clairedaly #occasions2018 #australia #stampinupdemo #stampinupaustralia

I coloured this one with Watercolour pencils, including the Lemon Lime Twist one which came inside the Lots of Happy Card Kit. I'm going to be super sad to see to see the Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon go. It's one of my favourites and is great for baby cards too.
