Colour Creations Week 33: Pear Pizazz with Stampin' Up! Garden Greenhouse
February 02, 2022
Hello friends. Another week of Colour Creations for you. This week we have Pear Pizazz, a lovely subtle green with a warm undertone.
I have combined three of my favourite products from the January to June Mini Catalogue in today's card. These are Greenhouse Garden bundle, the Bough Punch and the Abstract Beauty 4x6" Specialty Designer Series Paper. You can see these products in my online store using the links at the end of the page, and there are also product photos further down the post.
I started with a Pear Pizazz side folding C6 card. My next layer is a piece of Pear Pizazz embossed with one of the Greenery Mini Embossing Folders. I really love this embossed pattern. My next layer is a piece of the gorgeous Abstract Beauty specialty DSP. I love the bright happy colours in this paper. It also has some gold foiling.
Next up I have a piece of Basic White cardstock 9.6cm x 7.5cm. I stamped the largest foliage image (from the Garden Greenhouse stamp set) in Pear Pizazz ink. The teeny flowers were added using Polished Pink ink. These were super easy to line up as the stamp set is photopolymer. Make sure you line the bottom of the foliage up with the bottom of the Basic White cardstock piece.
Next up I cut my greenhouse pieces from the Greenhouse Dies. I cut the solid piece from a Window Sheet, and the outline piece with Silver foil. I attached the Silver Foil to an adhesive sheet before I diecut, so it could easily be attached t0 the Window Sheet. I attached the Window sheet to the card with a couple of small pieces of Stampin' Seal. next time I will use mini glue dots, or try sponging a thin layer of Multipurpose Liquid Glue as I have heard that works too.
To finish off my card. I punched the foliage shapes from the Bough punch in Pear Pizazz (the larger piece) and Polished Pink (the smaller piece). There are great foliage pieces included in the Greenhouse dies too, but I wanted to try out my Bough Punch. Finally I stamped the sentiment in Memento black ink and added a couple of Matte Black Dots.
Here's a closer look at the 3 key products I have used (check out the links at the end of the post to see them in my store).
First up here is the Garden Greenhouse bundle.
Next we have the Abstract Beauty DSP. This paper is double sided, 6x4" size and has gold foil accents on one side. There are 12 different designs and you get 4 of each sheet. I love the bright happy designs.
Finally we have the Bough punch. This is SO versatile!
Now it's time to check out what the rest of the Art with Heart team have created using Pear Pizazz. Next up we have the lovely Caroline Manwaring.
If you get lost anywhere along the way, you can find the full list of participants over on Cathy's blog.
We would love more happy crafters to join our awesome Art with Heart team (and you could participate in these weekly blog hops with us if you wanted, so ask any of the girls along the blog hop to0 tell you more about the fabulous things that happen in the team, and how you can get 2 extra free stamp sets when you join during Saleabration (on now!).
Have a great week and I look forward to seeing you back here again soon,
You have showcased this sweet bundle beautifully on your pretty card, Claire. The Greenery EF is the perfect choice for the theme of your card, and I love that the tiny stamped flowers go so nicely with the Polished Pink flowers on the DSP.

What a beautiful card, Claire. I love your little greenhouse and the way you've paired it with the tiny floral DSP – they work perfectly together!

Oh Claire - such a lovely card. So many gorgeous elements - the embossed piece of pear pizazz, the delightful DSP and the amazing Garden Greenhouse with the extra leaves from the punch. That punch is going on my next order. Thank you for your inspiration. Xxx

Beautiful card Claire and I love how you have used the window sheets to sit behind the greenhouse frame to replicate glass windows. The Polished Pink elements are perfect with Pear Pizzazz and love the bright coloured DSP from Abstract Beauty too.

Such a lovely card Claire that represents your love of gardening. And that DSP is perfect to compliment the Greenhouse and its flowers

This is such a pretty card and this bundle was made for you ;) The Greenery embossed layer works beautifully, as does that gorgeous DSP. I love everything about this and I can't wait for my order to arrive now!

Very sweet and pretty Claire. I’ve just received my pack of Abstract Beauty DSP and can’t wait to start creating with it. Your card showcases the Garden Greenhouse Bundle perfectly.

Your card is beautiful Claire. I am so attracted to the Garden Greenhouse bundle but had to draw the line somewhere so it remains on my Wishlist. It is so nice to see it actually being used. The embossing folder and DSP work perfectly with it.

This bundle is so 'you', and you've certainly made a fabulous card with it.
