AWHT Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations Week 49 - Soft Suede

Colour Creations 300

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.

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!

Stampin' Up! Art With Heart Team January Blog Hop - Occasions Catalogue Inspiration

Jan hop

Hello everyone. I'm getting back into regular blogging for the year now that the school holidays are drawing to a close. It's lovey to be back!

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects using product from the Occasions Catalogue. The Occasions Catalogue is current now until June 3rd. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today (along with the Sale-a-bration brochure).

Did you know that Sale-a-bration is also a great time to join our fabulous team with the great joining specials on. Ask anyone on the blog hop if you’d like more details. 

Today I have used the All Geared Up product suite, which is a fabulous suite for the males in our life that like cars, or tinkering with cars. This would even be great for the young males in our lives who are obsessed with their matchbox car collections.

I hve embossed the car in black embossing powder so it stands out more and has a shiny finish. I love the grease stain stamps and little tool embellishments in this suite!

5 Cards for males with the retiring True Gentleman Product Suite

Another of my much loved product suites in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue, has been the True Gentleman suite of products. I really liked the deep rich masculine colours in the Designer Series Paper (and coordinating cardstock pack), the fabulous textured  Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon, and the True Gentleman wooden buttons (the buttons are the only one of these consumable products carrying over to the new catalogue).

The coordinating bundle to this stamp set is the Truly Tailored Bundle. While the stamp set ISN'T Carrying over, the Tailored Tag Punch is, and there is a lovely new stamp set that it coordinates with which I will show you very soon. Here is the Truly Tailored Bundle which is available while stocks last until May 31st. Check out the links at the end of the post to grab these products before they retire.

Stampin' Up! Heartland Birthday and Thinking of You cards.

I love this gorgeous image in the Heartland stamp set. In fact as a country girl at heart (I was born in the wheatbelt of Western Australia and lived on farms until my late teens), this whole stamp set really jumped out at me in the 2017/18 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Stampin Up Heartland Thinking of You and male  birthday card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

It was the perfect image for my father in laws birthday card, and I also made a ''thinking of you' card to send to my Mum, as I think this image will really appeal to her as well.

For my Mum's card, I also wanted to try out my new Marbled Background stamp (stamped in Emerald Envy onto an Emerald Envy layer on a Dapper Denim card base). I watercoloured the image (stamped onto a piece of Shimmery White cut from the Stitched Shapes framelits) using the Stampin' Up! watercolour pencils.

To finish my card, I added a few simple embellishments: a leaf die cut from Eclectic Layers thinlits that I had lying around in my 'bits and pieces' bowl, some of the Dapper Denim washi tape from the Basic 3 Washi Tape and one of the Touches of Nature wooden elements.

For the birthday card I embossed the Emerald Envy layer using the Polka Dot basics embossing folder (note that the image in the catalogue is incorrect for this folder, the dots are actually further spaced as shown here).  The image was coloured the same, but stamped onto one of the circle Stitched Shapes Thinlits. For my embellishments I have added some Burlap Trim and Linen Thread, with some gold metallic shapes. I have used the Happy Birthday greeting from Happy Birthday gorgeous which is a great fit for the Pretty Label punch.

Here's a closer look at the Heartland stamp set (available in wood mount or clear mount red rubber) and the Basics Washi Tape #3 pack. I find this a great combo set because it has 5 different blues to coordinate with all your projects! We also have a green set of 5, pink set of 5 and black and white themed set.

If you are a country girl like me, or enjoy watercolouring, Heartland is a great stamp set for you!
