Week 25 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Lemon Lime Twist

Colour Creations 300

Hello there, welcome to another week of Colour Creations, This week we are playing with one of my favourite colours, Lemon Lime Twist. While I have lots of ideas for using this colour, I have decided this week to post the last of my Christmas card creations. Lemon Lime Twist is such a bright happy colour. It is a perfect accompaniment to the Making Spirits Bright stamp set.

I have used Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo Stampin' Blends to colour the Baubles. I also used the Daffodil Delight one to highlight the frame. I must confess I didn't intend to deboss the Oh My Stars embossing folder. It was supposed to be embossed but I liked my mistake better. That happens sometimes doesn't it?

I was happy how quickly this card came together and I have just the friend to give it to; one who brings brightness and sunshine into my life.

Now it's time to pop over to Catherine Proctor's blog, to see what the other Art With Heart team ladies have been creating with Lemon Lime Twist this week. Enjoy!

See you back here again tomorrow with our last week of Heart of Christmas for 2018.

Heart of Christmas Week 13 - Christmas creations bought to you by the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team

 

 

Welcome to week 13 of Heart of Christmas my friends.

This weeks card features Joyous Noel DSP. It's been a huge seller and Stampin' Up! have indicated this paper is likely to run out before the end of the catalogue. If you like it I would recommend getting in sooner rather than later. I love the beautiful copper foiling on it.

I have combined the DSP with the Peaceful Noel stamp set, and the Twig Punch (these two can be purchased together in a bundle to save 10%).

I love the look of the twigs cut from Copper Foil paper.

Heart of Christmas Week 12 - Christmas creations bought to you by the Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team

Heart of Christmas HOC picture

 

Hey there. Time for some more Christmas inspiration. We are up to Week 12 of the Art with Heart team Heart of Christmas. Just 3 weeks to go after this week.

For today's card, I have a gift holder for you. It was made using the lovely Peaceful Noel stamp set and Sprig Punch.

It opens up to have a pocket for a gift card inside.

It was fun creating all the foliage around the edge. I just used a pencil to trace the oval shape, stamped around that, rubbed the pencil our and added the top layers. The twig punch adds some great texture and dimension.

Week 22 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Grapefruit Grove

Colour Creations 300

Grapefruit Grove

Hello friends. Today the Colour Creation bloggers from the Art With Heart team are playing with Grapefruit Grove, which is one of the 2018-20 InColours. I have to confess this was a BIG challenge for me, as it's not a colour I reach for very often (ok, ever at all!). I was determined to have a go though, as tat's the challenge part right? Not 100% happy with my cards this week, but a sense of accomplishment for at least getting Grapefruit Grove onto 2 cards.

My first card uses the Elephant Builder Punch and the Balloon Builder punch with a greeting from Happy Birthday Beautiful. Oops in that I should have looked at the picture in how to put the elephant together. I will definitely fix that and add the eye before I give this card away.

I quite like these colours of Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaron, Berry Burst and Smoky Slate together. The base card is one of the Delightfully Detailed notecards and envelopes, so already had the Mint Macaron water wash printed on the card.

My second card uses a similar colour palette, and one of the silver foil edged note-cards and envelopes. These are very hard to photograph, so apologies for the dodgy photos here. I have used the Happy Birthday Beautiful stamp set for his card.
