It's been quite a few weeks since I have been able to participate in the Art With Heart Team Colour Creations blog hop. I have to admit that Soft Suede isn't the most inspiring colour for me to jump back in on, but then I saw a picture of a hotel suite today and the colour combination really inspired me as a great colour combination for my nephews 21st birthday card.
Here's the picture. It's the gorgeous Langham Hotel in Sydney. I see a touch of Soft Suede, some Sahara Sand and also one of our new Stampin' Up! 2019 InColours, Pretty Peacock.
My card has used a lot more Pretty Peacock than the combination here as used, but I think it still works great with the Soft Suede. I have used one of my favourite new stamp sets in the new 2019 Annual Stampin' Up! catalogue, and one that is PERFECT for masculine cards, A Good Man.
Here is the colour combination I used. The watercolour paper is more an off-white, which softens the combination compared to the white here.
This card really demonstrated to me how much I am loving the various types of stitched dies we carry at the moment. I think they give a really professional finish. I have used the Stitched Shape Dies and Stitched Rectangle dies on this card. To colour my image, I have used Blender Pens picking up the ink inside the ink pad lids (Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Seaside Spray and Pretty Peacock).
I also used the Subtle embossing folder (PERFECT folder for male cards) to give some additional interest to the Soft Suede and Sahara Sand layers.
Copper foil and copper embossing looks perfect with these colours, so that's what I have gone for. My greeting is from Perennial Birthday, heat embossed using our copper embossing folder. I have cut the numbers from our copper foil card, The dies used for that were the Little Numbers dies which have sadly retired some time ago, but were a perfect size for my card.
Now it's time to head back over to Catherine Proctor, to see what else the lovely Art With Heart team ladies have created using Soft Suede this week. Enjoy!
Pop back in on Thursday for the monthly Art With Heart Team blog hop where we will be showcasing some more new catalogue products.
