Art With Heart Colour Creations - Gorgeous Grape



This week's colour is the beautiful Gorgeous Grape. I love having a real purple back in the colour range. 
I have two very different cards for you today.
For this card I used a few drops of Gorgeous Grape reinker with a few drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint. This mix was then applied with a sponge dauber. The other colour used here is Lovely Lipstick. The same process was followed. The Happy Birthday was die cut with a piece of Adhesive Sheet behind it which made it very easy to attach. The final touch was a few Black Rhinestones.
 A very simple, but I think, a very stunning card that could be replicated in endless colour combinations.


Here's a close up of the shimmer on the card, quite lovely.


The next card is a completely different style, although again I used Shimmer Paint. The floral image from Very Vintage was stamped in Stazon Jet Black then coloured using a Blender Pen and inks in Gorgeous Grape, Crushed Curry and Mossy Meadow. The Frost White Shimmer Paint was then applied LIGHTLY using scrunched up plastic wrap suing a dabbing motion. When dry, only about a minute, I die cut the oval.
The background Gorgeous Grape was embossed using the Tin Tile Dynamic Embossing Folder.


There is a small mat in Crushed Curry behind the Gorgeous Grape and Linen Thread and Lace to finish the card. On the card base I stamped the doily image from the Very Vintage set in Versamark.

Heart of Christmas - Week 9


Today's Christmas card uses the Beautiful Baubles stamp set. 
As it's one of the cards we will be doing at my Pink Girls Day In fundraising event, it had to feature pink, in this case Powder Pink. The large bauble has been heat embossed in Silver on Watercolour paper.

 The image was watercoloured using an Aquapainter and Stampin' Up! inks in Powder Pink, Lovely Lipstick and Tranquil Tide.



The greenery was cut using the Pretty Pines dies and the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper stack. The bow was cut from Lovely Lipstick, also in the Pretty Pines thinlits.

Art With Heart Colour Creations - Garden Green



 Garden Green is this week's colour so of course it had to be a Christmas card.

 I have fussy cut one of the Santa images from the very cute Santa's Workshop Specialty DSP.
For the background I stamped the Buffalo Check stamp in Garden Green onto Garden Green card stock. 

The final touches are a few snowflakes from the Beautiful Blizzard bundle and a piece of Poppy Parade Textured Weave Ribbon.


Here's a closer look at the Santa and his little helpers.
