My projects feature a beautiful new Designer Paper called Mosaic Mood. This paper pack didn't immediately jump out at me in the catalogue, but then we received a pack as an all attendee give away on the last day of Onstage. Once opening the pack, the beautiful colours jumped right out at me, as did the clear embossed parts which add beautiful texture and interest. It's a really pretty 12 x 12 paper pack.

I have used the paper to make two cards for some friends that needed a virtual hug recently. There are lots of beautiful floral mosaic images to cut from the paper, and I used those as the feature of my cards.

For some added interest on this first card, I embossed one of the layers with the Subtle embossing folder, which gives a beautiful textured but subtle effect. I also did some very light stamping on the base card (the leaf image is from Healing Hugs stamp set). My greeting on this card is from a set carrying over into the new 2019 Annual Catalogue, called Flourishing Phrases. The inside sentiment says 'with warmth and caring from me'. The greeting on the front of the card fit's nicely in one of the stitched circles from the Stitched Shapes die set. This is one of my most used die sets because it has ovals, squares and circles in the one pack.

As you can see, there's a range of beautiful colours in this paper. The catalogue tells me that the coordinating colours are: Blushing Bride. Crushed Curry, Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Soft Suede, Terracotta Tile, Very Vanilla and Whisper White. I adapted that a little and used the following colours to give my cards a soft pastel look:

Colour Combination: Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, So SaffronI haven't used So Saffron in what feels like forever, but I think it works really well with this new Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper. The greeting I have used on this card is from Healing Hugs, another set carrying over to the 2019 Annual Catalogue.

I've used the Stitched Rectangle Dies, and the Stitched Labels dies for the layers of my greeting. I do like my stitched dies, and any interesting shapes I can use for stamping greetings or layering. This large stitched label is one of my favourite dies.

7 Ways to use the Stampin' Up! Rectangle Stitched Framelits with metric cards in Australia and UK.

Hello happy stampers.

Today I wanted to tell you all about the Rectangle Stitched Framelits which were introduced in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue. They are a fabulous versatile bunch of rectangle Framelits that can be used in so many ways, including with our metric card measurements.

 

Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies - Item 148551 (find them HERE in the online store)

There are 13 dies in the set, and one of the things I love MOST about them, is the the stitching is on both the piece that is cut out, and the piece that is left behind. The largest rectangle is 13.3cm x 19.8cm. There are so many versatile shapes for layers, feature stamped panels and even for sentiments.

Rectangle Framelits

Here's a range of different ways these Framelits work with various card sizes available in Australia. 

For this first card I have used them with our Narrow Notecards and Envelopes. A great fit for these.

They are also a great fit for our note-cards and envelope sets that come in either Whisper White or Very Vanilla.

Next up I have used them to create a frame around a cut out rectangle, on the Delightfully Detailed note cards and envelopes. These cards are sized the same as our note-cards and envelopes.

The rectangles can also be used as stamped panels or layers on cards, as I have used on this card. I really like how the stitching works gives that extra bit of interest around the edges. These cards are the Memories and More card bases, which coordinate with the Happiness Blooms Memories and More cards.

The Rectangle Stitched Framelits also work really well with the silver and gold edged note-cards and envelopes which are carried over from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue. I like how the stitching looks on our foil cardstock on the inner layers as well.

These last two projects are made using our standard C6 size cards (half A4 and then folded). Even though the rectangles are not perfectly sized for our card fronts (as opposed to US sized cards), in my opinion they still work really great.

On this card I have used a frame and added some elements slightly overlapping, so you can't even tell there is any difference in measurements in my opinion. I also like the idea of having a small gap at the base of the card for additional sentiments if I wanted to add them as well (in that case I would have moved the frame up a little on the card).

For this last card, I have used the rectangles as a focus for my stamped image. This card made me smile while I was making it because that's exactly what my cat Teddy does with my bakers twine if I accidentally leave it lying around. Right now he is innocently sleeping at my feet though.

So I hope that has shown you lots of different ways to get great value from the Rectangle Stitched Framelit dies. They are definitely a must have in your Framelit stash in my opinion. (find them HERE in the online store).

AWHT Stampin' Up! Team Colour Creations Week 39 - Poppy Parade

Colour Creations 300

Welcome back to another Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. Today we are playing with Poppy Parade, one of the past In-colours that was reintroduced as a core colour last June, due to its popularity. Poppy parade is a lovely bright red, lending itself to happy bright colour combinations.

Poppy Parade

I struggled a bit with my card for this challenge, as Poppy Parade isn't a colour I normally make the star of a card. In the end, I found a combination I liked, by combining just one other colour (Granny Apple Green) with Basic Black and Whisper White.

This black and white gingham piece from the Botanical Butterfly DSP is really getting a workout. I love the whole DSP pack actually. Will be sad when Saleabration is over at the end of March and it's no longer available to earn. I have also used the Painted Seasons Saleabration Bundle (Level 2) here, and a couple of my favourite Framelit sets: Stitched Labels and Stitched Shapes.

Here's the Poppy Parade colour combination I used in case you want to save it.

Once I had finished the main card, I loved the colour combination so much that I made some extra more simple cards. I love having 'Hello' cards on hand as I find these are great to send with customer and team gifts.
