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 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.

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.

Week 10 AWH Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations Blog Hop: Calypso Coral

It' great to be able to start participating more regularly in my team blog hops. Today is the AWH Team Colour Creations Blog Hop and our colour of the week is Calypso Coral.

CC Calypso

Calypso Coral is a beautiful mid strength coral colour, making it super versatile. It's one of the key colours in the Tea Room suite in the 2018 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue, so I have used a the designer series paper and copper vinyl stickers from that suite in today's card. My base card colour is Coastal Cabana.

I have used the Blended Season bundle for the stamp and Framelits, as they are limited edition products only available this  month. I really love the stamp set because it's great for colouring and has really versatile images and greetings. The Framelits are really unique too in that when you.  cut the stitched shape, the negative shape also has stitching on it. I think these products are a great investment. They are only available to purchase this month, and you can find them HERE IN MY ONLINE STORE.

I coloured my image using the Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Markers. I love how easy it is to blend the colour with these alcohol markers, and of course they perfectly coordinate with all the Stampin' Up! colours. To embellish my card, I have used the Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers, and an artisan pearl. The butterfly is one of the stickers, which I just stuck onto a scrap of Shimmery White cardstock and cut out with paper snips.

Stampin' Up! 2016 Easter Cards and FabFri82

Hello lovely stampers!

It's literally years since I have been involved in any stamping challenges, and this week I needed a little inspiration so I decided to play along with the Fab Friday Challenge 82. It's a colour challenge which I thought was perfect for some Easter cards.

Fab Friday Logos-013

 

I've put the cute little bird from Honeycomb Happiness to work in both of these cards. The DSP in this one is from the It's My Birthday DSP stack.

For this one, I have used the stamps in Work of Art to colour the eggs, which I cut using the ovals framelits.
