The Art with Heart Team are back with another round of Colour Creations, where we showcase each of the Stampin’ Up! colours, a different colour each week, so that you can get some inspiration, new ideas and perhaps new colour combinations to use in your own projects.
For our first week, we are starting with Balmy Blue, one of the Subtles collection, and a gorgeous blue that goes with so many other colours.
I have chosen to go very monochromatic with my first card, which features the new Blossoms in Bloom Bundle which you can find on Page 51 of the NEW Annual Catalogue.
The flowers are stamped on to white cardstock with the Balmy Blue ink, and then I have die cut with the two different dies, the first layer is cut from Vellum and the second is cut from white, creating a lovely subtle and pretty layering.
You can see the layers better in the close up photo:
The Blossoms in Bloom Bundle, which includes the stamp set and Many Layered Blossoms dies, is now available and you can shop online here any time.
You may have noticed that I have been missing in action for the past month.
I have been rather unwell and finding it difficult to craft and blog along with everything else I need to do in my life.
Today has been a pretty good day, although I am starting to feel like it’s time to rest, so I will keep my post short and sweet.
My card today features the Let it Snow Designer Series Paper, and all of the cute Christmas trees on my card have been cut from the DSP.
For the background I have used the Stylish Scroll embossing folder which was inked up before putting it through the Big Shot. And I have also used the versatile Ornate Frames Dies for the sentiment panel.
I hope to be back soon with some more creations but in the meantime, you can see all of the inspiration from today’s Heart of Christmas blog hop here.
I am joining in with the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop this week, and we are using Real Red on our projects.
My ink colour pallete is rather limited at this stage, so I am having to rely on the cardstock I have on hand, and some bits and pieces that my lovely upline, Judy May, has sent to me, so that I can keep the creativity going.
Judy sent me this gorgeous heart and the “Happy” word, both in Real Red, so they were perfect to use for this Blog Hop.
The heart is Die cut using the absolutely gorgeous Be Mine Stitched Framelits dies, which I just love!! So gorgeous. Definitely on the Wish List!
Isn’t it pretty?
So many beautiful die available, I want them all.
I also love Embossing Folders and this one is another particularly lovely one, it’s called Layered Leaves. Another one on my Wish List!
If you would like to see what the rest of the Blog Hop team have made using Real Red this week, you can find the list here.
