Colour Creations Week 41 Sahara Sand with Stampin Up Cactus Cuties Bundle
March 23, 2022
Hey friends, welcome to another week of Colour Creations blog hop by the Art with Heart Team. This week we are playing with Sahara Sand.
My card is a super quick and easy one this week, as I was running a bit late to get it created and up on my blog. I had the colour scheme and products in my head though, so it was pretty quick to get it done. I have used the cactus Cuties punch bundle from the 2022 Stampin' Up! January to June Mini Catalogue.
I have used Shimmery White for my background and have embossed the front layer with the Painted Texture embossing folder (I used my blending brushes to add dome Sahara Sand ink in the centre before I embossed). The pot is stamped in Sahara Sand, the cactus in Mint Macaron and the flowers in Polished Pink.
Here's a closer look at my colour combination.
The Cactus Cuties punch bundle made cutting out some of the bits for this card super easy. Punch bundles are so quick and easy and I love how reasonably priced they are!
Now it's time to see what the rest of the Art with Heart team girls have done with Sahara Sand. Next up, we have the lovely Christine Blain.
If you get lost along the way, head over to Cathy Proctor's blog as she has the full list of participants on there.
Thanks for checking in today with the Art with Heart Team. See you back here again soon.
The painted Texture embossing folder is the perfect background for your cute little cactus, Claire. I love the bright pink flowers too!

What a super cute card, Claire! The sponging on the embossed layer is so effective and I love your colour combo too!

I echo Cathy's sentiment - super-cute card, Claire!! I love the textured background (I have neglected that embossing folder; it gives a fantastic effect), and the cute cacti. Those colours look fab with Sahara Sand.

A gorgeous card Claire. I love its simplicity together with the subtle extra touches of blending and embossing. The colour combo is perfect. Xxx

As everyone has said this is a super cute card Claire yet quick and easy to create. Love the effect of the blending on the background, lovely and soft.
