Week 17 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Flirty Flamingo

Hello and welcome to our weekly play with colour! Today, the lovely Catherine has got the Art With Heart team girls playing with Flirty Flamingo.

Flirty Flamingo

Here is my card for today, a lovely soft combination of Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate.

Flirty Flamingo Country Home watercolor wash card  by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. 2018 Holiday Catalogue, Christmas.

I did two layers on my watercolour wash, with a slightly darker strength in the second wash which I only did close to the image.  After the wash dried, I also flicked a bit of water to add some more interest. I have used some of the beautiful Frosted Floral Specialty Paper from the holiday catalogue as mu backing DSP (this piece is particularly beautiful!), and one of the Chicken Wire elements which adds some more country feel and texture to the card.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today. There are links to the other Flirty Flamingo colour ideas from the Art with Heart team, over on my lovely team member Catherine Proctor's blog. Catherine is our team member who came up with and is coordinating this project for the team this year. I'm so lucky to have so many great team members who pitch in and run things which everyone can enjoy in our team.

Have a great week, and I will see you back here next week with Fresh Fig!

My Stampin' Up! Alaska Incentive Trip swap card, featuring Very Vintage stamp set.

Hello stamping friends! I'm so excited to be back from holidays and the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to Alaska (yes really I am) and blogging for you again. I had a fabulous holiday, and I hope to bring you a highlights post very soon. It's always lovely to come home though, and I love creating and sharing with you.

Today I wanted to share with you the card I created for the demonstrator swap on the Incentive Trip. We needed to make 26 cards, of which one went on display and we got 25 back. I will be sharing some of my favourite swaps over on my Facebook Business Page over the next few weeks, so make sure you follow me over there too. For me, the swapping is all about the fun of just sharing what we love though. I love the process of getting my swaps ready before the trip (yes really I do) as it gets me into trip mode. I love hearing from other demonstrators who received my card too.

So here's the card I created 26 of.

Stampin Up Alaska Incentive Trip swap by Claire Daly, Stampin' Up! demo Melbourne Australia. Using Very Vintage and Rooted in Nature Stamp Set.

My base card is Fresh Fig, and that was stamped onto with Fresh Fig ink using the Very Vintage stamp set (one of my absolute favourites in the  catalogue). It's in the Stampin' Reward section, which means the clear mount version can be chosen FREE with a $250 order all through the life of the 2018 Annual Catalogue. Here's a closer look at it. Isn'y it gorgeous?

Very Vintage 1

The sponged panel on my card uses the following ink colours: Flirty Flamingo, Crushed Curry, Mango Melody and Rich Razzelberry. The images are just stamped over that in Memento Black. To add a bit of extra texture and shine, I added an embossed copper greeting, and also a copper foil mat on the sponged panel.

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree with Brusho Micropowders

Today I decided to show you another card with Brusho, this time a sympathy or get well card using Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree. I have used the Gamboge pot of Brusho for this card.

Brusho 1

I really love the effect I got with the Brusho as a bright sky or sunset. I am not sure how that small circular gap happened but I quite like that it did, as it kind of looks like a sun or moon. I did the Brusho piece first (again just sprinkling Brusho onto the watercolor paper which I had sprayed a few times with a water mister). When that was dry, I over stamped the Brusho with the the image from Lovely as Tree stamp set using Early Espresso ink. My greeting is from Flourishing Phrases stamp set. I have used  the 1 3/4" circle punch for the greeting and then cut a 2" circle from Copper Foil Cardstock to mat it (I used the Circle Layering Framelits for this step). I carried the Copper Foil Cardstock mat to the stamped image too, and the base card is just Early Espresso.

Brisho 1a

Here's a bit more about how to use Brusho. You can purchase it in my online store using the links at the end of the post.

 

Have fun playing with Brusho.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Shore with Brusho micropowders.

Hello again.

Today I have a fun card for you where I have used our Prussian Blue Brusho (just sprinkled onto watercolour paper that I had misted well with water), as a background for this fun ocean themed card.

Brusho 2

I really love the random patterns that the Brusho creates when it hits the damp paper.  The Prussian Blue is a perfect colour for the look of the ocean too. I have teamed it with Lemon Lime Twist, Tangerine Tango and Basic Black to create this card. I have also used some of our Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes (link at end of post) to create dimension for bubbles.

Brusho 2z

I hope you like today's card. Seaside Shore is such a fun stamp set to create with.

Have a happy and creative day,

Claire
