Colouring stamped images - August 2018 Art With Heart Monthly Blog Hop

Aug Hop

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring stamp sets that you can colour in. We hope our blog hop inspires you to pick up some Stampin’ Write Markers, Watercolour Pencils, Stampin Blends or another form of colouring medium and colour in with your stamps. Don’t forget to contact any of the ladies on the blog hop to order any products, especially they limited edition colour your season products.

I have featured another Christmas card, as I just can't get enough of colouring the Christmas baubles with the Stampin' Blends. I have been going a bit crazy with colouring using the Blends lately, as I just love the depth of colour I am getting and the ease of the blending, They are great alcohol markers, and having them to coordinate with my Stampin' Up! colours is just a bonus.

Other products are the new Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder (coming in the Holiday Catalogue), and to mat the image I have used Coastal Cabana cardstock and Silver Glimmer paper. My image is stamped onto Thick Whisper White cardstock with Memento Black ink pad, with the greeting from the Beautiful Baubles set silver embossed.

Week 12 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Coastal Cabana

Who's for playing with a lovely sunny blue this week, in Coastal Cabana? I love this blue and was so happy to see it back this year with the Stampin' Up! Colour Revamp.

Coastal Cabana

Coastal Cabana 2

 Here's my card for this week. Coastal Cabana and silver make a fabulous combination for Christmas cards don't you think?

I've used the Beautiful Baubles stamp set, with Coastal Cabana and Silver Glimmer Paper (oh my goodness, you should check out our new and improved glimmer paper - NO MESS, and it also cuts beautifully in the Big Shot now. I LOVE IT. Find it HERE in the online store).

It was so much fun colouring the different baubles in with the Stampin' Blends. Stampin' Blends alcohol markers are perfect when you want blendable saturated colour. Just remember to stamp your image in Memento Black Ink so you don't get any running of the image. Here are the colours of the Stampin' Blends I used (you can buy Stampin' blends individually, or in light and dark combination for each colour. See them all HERE in my online store.

  • Light Soft Sea Foam
  • Dark Soft Sea Foam
  • Light Mint Macaron
  • Light Pool Party
  • Dark Pool Party
  • Light Bermuda Bay
  • Light Smoky Slate

Week 10 AWH Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations Blog Hop: Calypso Coral

It' great to be able to start participating more regularly in my team blog hops. Today is the AWH Team Colour Creations Blog Hop and our colour of the week is Calypso Coral.

CC Calypso

Calypso Coral is a beautiful mid strength coral colour, making it super versatile. It's one of the key colours in the Tea Room suite in the 2018 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalogue, so I have used a the designer series paper and copper vinyl stickers from that suite in today's card. My base card colour is Coastal Cabana.

Stampin Up Blended Seasons Card by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! Demo Melbourne Australia

I have used the Blended Season bundle for the stamp and Framelits, as they are limited edition products only available this  month. I really love the stamp set because it's great for colouring and has really versatile images and greetings. The Framelits are really unique too in that when you.  cut the stitched shape, the negative shape also has stitching on it. I think these products are a great investment. They are only available to purchase this month, and you can find them HERE IN MY ONLINE STORE.



I coloured my image using the Old Olive and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Markers. I love how easy it is to blend the colour with these alcohol markers, and of course they perfectly coordinate with all the Stampin' Up! colours. To embellish my card, I have used the Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers, and an artisan pearl. The butterfly is one of the stickers, which I just stuck onto a scrap of Shimmery White cardstock and cut out with paper snips.

Stampin' Up! Graceful Garden with some vintage inspired texture.

Hello lovely friends. 

This week I was lucky enough to attend the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, which is a really fabulous floral, backyard and landscape gardening show in Melbourne. Seeing all the beautiful floral displays motivated me to come home and finish this card I had started at a friends last Monday.

Rose 2

This stamp set is called Gracious Garden and it's from the 2017 Annual Catalogue. I hadn't played with it before, but now I really love it! I coloured it with the Stampin' Blends (light and dark Pink Pirouette, light and dark Old Olive and light Rich Razzleberry). I then fussy cut the image and adhered both the stamped image and stamped rectangle using Dimensionals.

Rose 1

I have used the debossed side of the Garden Trellis embossing folder (I really like how this pattern coordinates with the background pattern in the Gracious Garden stamp set. My greeting is from Cake Soiree stamp set and I have stamped in Early Espresso and cut the greeting out with a 1" Circle Punch. A bit of lace tied around the stem and a White Lace Doily finishes off my card.

My greeting is from At Home With You, as I wanted a very small greeting and I love the font in this set. I have used coordinating Powder Pink ribbon as well.  I love how the ribbon coordinates in so well with the Stampin' Blends colours as well.
