Art With Heart Team Colour Creations Blog Hop: Pretty Peacock

Colour Creations 300

Jumping into the Colour Creations blog hop this week as we are into week 3 of the 2019 InColours. This week is Pretty Peacock, a beautiful teal blue that I am already totally in love with, as it is so versatile. Today I have teamed it with another new 2019 Incolour, Rococo Rose. I love the fresh vintage look of these colours together.

We have lots of beautiful new InColour products besides just the ink and cardstock in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue (see all the Pretty Peacock ones in the link below). For this card I have used some of the 6x6 InColour paper stack. There are 40 sheets in the pack in total, with 4 sheets of 2 different double sided designs in each of the 5 new InColours. I particularly love the script pattern. I have also used our new Very Vanilla scalloped lace and some of the Rococo Rose scalloped linen ribbon (which I have cut into strips), and one of the Bird Ballad trinkets in the top left corner.

For the watercolouring of the Free as A Bird image, I have used Gray Granite and Rococo Rose for the birds, Old Olive and Rococo Rose for the leaves and flowers, and Gray Granite and Early Espresso for the branch. I have used a very light watercolour wash of Seaside Spray around the image for the sky.

Now it's time to jump over to Catherine Proctors blog, and see what the other Art With Heart team girls have done with Pretty Peacock this week.

Thanks for stopping by my blog tonight. I will be back in a day or two with some more inspiration for you.

Until then, have a happy and creative week.

Stampin' Up! To a Wild Rose Stamp Set 3 ways

Hello crafty friends.

I'm super excited that the new 2019 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue goes live at 8am AEST (Melbourne time) tomorrow! 

One of the new stamp sets that took my fancy, was the To a Wild Rose stamp set. This is a super versatile stamp set, and I even used the greeting on a scrapbook page. It's a 2 or 3 step stamp, and here I have used all three layers: an outline layer in Early Espresso, the base flower in Rococo Rose (stamped off once), and the final highlights layer in Rococo Rose.  I have used Mossy Meadow for the leaves. The base card here is one of the Magnolia Lane Large Memories and More cards which come in a set of 20 with matching envelopes.

I have used the Birch background stamp on one of the new Nested Label Dies (this is a great new shape to add interest to cards). I love that we have some brass embellishments back (top left corner) - these are the Bird Ballad embellishments and there are a few different designs in the pack. I have also used some of the beautiful scalloped linen ribbon which comes in all the five new in colours.

This next card is much simpler, as I have used just 2 layers for the stamp (and also the centre part of the flower). The base flower is Rococo Rose stamped off once, and the highlight layer is Melon Mambo. I used Early Espresso for the flower centre, and Old Olive for the leaves on this one. I stamped my greeting in Early Espresso and have just added 3 metallic pearls to finish this one off.

Finally I have a scrapbook page for you where I have used the To a Wild Rose stamp set for the title.

I have also used some of the bits and pieces from the beautiful Hugs from Shelli Paper Pumpkin kit (now sold out), and some new Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Country Home 'Hello' Card

Hello crafty friends. I hope you are having an enjoyable Saturday. It's a cool drizzly weekend here in Melbourne. Tennis was washed out, so I had a nice sleep in and now I am catching up on some blogging. I love lazy Saturdays.

I also love all things floral and vintage, so the Country Home stamp set in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue really grabbed my attention. I love the interchangeable vintage vases and floral arrangements.

I have coloured the image with Stampin' Blends as I love the saturation of colour they give me, and the superior blending. The Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series paper is a great accompaniment to this stamp set.

Another thing I really like about this stamp set is that it has lots of sentiments included with the images. One of the sentiments also coordinates with the Tin Tile textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Here's a look at the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper. Like the name suggests, it has a lovely frosted pearl shimmer finish.

Stampin' Up! Flying Home Stamp Set with Stampin' Blends

Today's shares feature some coloured images from the new Flying Home stamp set in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue. This is a super cute set of line drawn images which are just perfect for colouring.

Stampin Up Flying Home stamp set #occassions2018

I stamped my images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, onto Thick Whisper White cardstock as I planned to colour with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. I used Light Old Olive, Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Light Pink Pirouette, Light and Dark Pool Party and Light Calypso Coral.

I did two different designs, with the coloured images cut out either with the circle or square Stitched Shape Framelits.

The diecut I have used is from the Petals and More Thinlit Dies.  I tried it in Soft Sky and Crumb Cake, but I think I like the Soft Sky versions best.

I did a bit of a watercolour wash in Soft Sky around the coloured image to soften some of the white space.

I wanted the coloured images to be the focus of these cards, so I just went for a really small simple greeting from the At Home With You stamp set. I love the font in the greetings in this set.

Using the Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste

I tried out the new embossing paste from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue last weekend. There are 3 key products in this range:

The masks can be used for spongeing, but in this case when combined with the Embossing Paste and smoothed over with the Palette Knives, you get a lovely raised effect which adds dimension and texture to your papercraft projects. It's super simple to use (just make sure you have a plastic mat) and I was surprised how quickly it dried. I use my Silicone Craft Sheet to create colours by adding a drop or two of re-inker to 3/4 - 1 teaspoon of Embossing Paste (that usually covers a couple of cards. I use the Palette Knives to mix on the Silcone Craft Sheet. There's a video at the end of the post which shows how this is done.

Here's a closer look at the four mask patterns you get in the Party Patterns Decorative masks pack.

Here's two of the cards I made. For this one I have used 2 drops of Powder Pink ink refill in about 1 teaspoon of embossing paste, and then sprinkled some gold glitter randomly over the top (while the embossing paste was still wet) and shook off the excess.

My stamp set is Happy Birthday Gorgeous which is a new set 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. I love the funky font on this set and it has so many other great greetings. The paper is Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.

For this second card I have used the cloud mask and 1 drop of Soft Sky re-inker in about 3/4 teaspoon of Embossing Paste. I love the effect this gives for clouds. I have used the Lift Me Up stamp set and Up & Away Thinlits to complete my card. This is a nice colour combination to use with the new InColour Powder Pink.
