Week 21 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Granny Apple Green

Colour Creations 300

Granny Apple Green

Today we are playing with Granny Apple Green in the Art With Heart Team's Colour Creations Stampin' Up! Blog Hop.  Granny Apple Green is a beautiful bright crisp green (just like the apple) and looks great with other bright colours and with black and white.

I have used the Making Christmas Bright stamp set and my awesome Stamparatus stamp positioning took which allowed me to get the placement perfectly aligned (those removable plates are a game changer). Here's my colour combination:

The Making Spirits Bright stamp set is such a fun one for Christmas. My son really loves his Christmas lights and puts them up every year so it's very appropriate in our house. I cn see it will be a great set to use for some journaling cards for my December Daily album this year too.

Now it's time to head over to visit Catherine Proctor and see what the other Art With Heart team girls have done with Granny Apple Green today. I have had lots of fun playing with this colour.

Garden Green

Hello paper crafters, it's Garden Green week with the AWHT Colour Creations team this week. 

  Stampin Up, Making Spirits Bright. Santa's Workshop DSP, Garden Green, Pool Party. colour, color, 2018, Holiday Catalogue, Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator, Melbourne, Australia.

I often find colour combination inspiration in our Designer Series Papers, and this week is no exception. I love this fun Santa's Workshop Designer Series Paper. I have picked out the colour combination of Garden Green, Pool Party and Real Red for my greeting layers, to coordinate with the paper. The stamp set I used is Making Spirits Bright from the Stampin' Up! 2018 Holiday Catalogue. All products are available to purchase in my Online Stampin' Up! store.

This stamp set has some really bright (excuse the pun) and happy greetings and I really like the circle stamp too. I'm happy with how this crd turned out. The elf paper is so cute and the Pool Party really lifts and brightens the Garden Green.

Week 18 AWHT Colour Creations Blog Hop - Fresh Fig

  Colour Creations 300

Fresh Fig color

Welcome to week 18 of Colour Creations from the Art with Heart Team. This week's colour is one of the 2017 Incolours, Fresh Frig. It's a beautiful deep colour which I love! It's actually quite similar to the colour of my bridesmaid dresses many years ago. Today I have used it with Soft Sea Foam, Powdered Pink and Bermuda Bay.

I love colouring this bauble. We don't have Fresh Fig or Powdered Pink Stampin' Blends, so I used light Blackberry Bliss and light Flirty Flamingo respectively. I have added some texture after the colouring, by running it through the Subtle embossing folder in the BigShot. The other embossing folder used on the Powder Pink layer is Tufted, which was a new one in this years Annual Catalogue. I have already used it so much!

I hope you like this week's card. Now it's time to head over to Catherine Proctor's blog so you can see what the rest of the Art with Heart team girls are up to with Fresh Fig this week.

Thanks for stopping by today,

Claire

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 16 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Early Espresso

Colour Creations 300

Early Espresso

 

Here's my card for this week, using one of my all time favourite Christmas colour combinations: Early Espresso, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake. I have used the Festive Farmhouse Suite from the 2018 Stampin' Up! Catalogue.

Stampin Up, 2018 Holiday Catalogue, Farmhouse Christmas card by Claire Daly, Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia

 

I definitely wouldn't call this a 'do in bulk' Christmas card, but I had lots of fun making the Christmas farmhouse scene and doing the paper piecing on the house. I used two different sheets of the Wood Texture 6x6" DSP pack for the house, with the darker sheet for the roof and shutters. I love the fence and all the bits and pieces that come in the Framelits.
