Art With Heart Colour Creations - Petal Pink


Tonight the Art With Heart team are featuring Petal Pink in their Colour Creations Blog Hop.
I have a couple of cards to share with you using this beautiful soft peachy pink.
The first one uses the Flowering Desert set from the Occasions Catalogue. I loved this set as soon as I saw it, something a bit different. The DSP in the background is a vellum sheet from the Floral Romance Specialty DSP. I have used the Rectangular Stitched Framelit dies to cut the main image and also a Mossy Meadow frame around it. The tiny butterflies are from the Butterfly Beauty Thinlit dies.


For the next card I used the sweet bunny from Fable Friends, also in the Occasions Catalogue, which I stamped on Watercolour paper and coloured with an Aquapainter. The beautiful DSP in the background is from the Painted Seasons DSP which is on of the 2nd Release Sale-a-bration rewards. The Petal Pink background has be embossed using the Tuffted Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder. The shape for the greeting is from the Stitched Labels Thinlits and the greeting is also from the Fabled Friends set.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my Petal Pink samples. For more inspiration head to Cathy’s blog for a full list of this week’s participants.
Happy stampin,

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop - Pear Pizzazz


Finally back again with another Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop, this time featuring Pear Pizzazz.

This week's card uses the beautiful Speciality DSP , Floral Romance. I used it as a background on a Pear Pizzazz card base. 


As a feature on the card I cut a wreath using a die from the Dear Doily Thinlit set from Berry Burst cardstock.
The floral image from Dear Doily stamp set was coloured using the Stampin' Up! Markers and then was die cut using the coordinating dies.
The final touch is a bow from the Petal Pink and White ribbon.

Happy Stampin,

Art With Heart Colour Creations - Lovely Lipstick


Today the Art With Heart Team are featuring Lovely Lipstick, one of the In Colours for 2018-2020.


For today's card I used the brand new Butterfly Beauty Thinlit dies, available in the upcoming Occasions Catalogue.
I paired them with my favourite DSP, Wooden Textures.

The butterflies were cut from White Glimmer paper and Lovely Lipstick card stock, layered on top of each other.

The final touches are a bow from the new Lovely Lipstick Stitched Ribbon and a few Rhinestones for an extra sparkle.

Art With Heart Blog Hop November - Sketch Theme



This week the Art With Heart Team have a Sketch inspired Blog Hop to share with you.

Here's the sketch we're using which was supplied by the very clever Ros Davidson, thanks Ros.
For those who haven't seen or used a sketch before, the idea is to use this sketch as a basis for your inspiration. You can interpret it any way you choose.
We hope you like how we have each put our own spin on the sketch and that it inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous cards. If you are inspired by the sketch, please share with us! 

I chose to use this sketch very literally!
But look! The set I've used is NEW!! Geared Up Garage! It will be available in the Occasions Catalogue, live to customers on the 3rd of January.


The car stamped on the Basic Gray background in Smoky Slate is suggested, by my son. to be a Mustang. There are numerous car images in this set including a tool box, oil can, grease stain and Father's Day greetings. Yay! Love this set for the men!
Oh, the paper too is new! The Classic Garage DSP 6 x 6 pack coordinates perfectly with the Geared Up Garage stamp set. 
But wait, there's also a thinlit set to cut out all the images, amazing!


I hope you've enjoyed my take on this sketch and a peek and some new products.
The next stamper to hop over to for more amazing inspiration is Rebecca Jacovou, who is the first stamper in our Blog Hop.

Thank you for visiting, don't forget to share your projects with us,

Happy stampin',
Rachel

Heart of Christmas - Week 15


This is our final week of the Heart of Christmas Blog Hops! Christmas must be getting close!

This week's card uses the Dashing Deer bundle from the Holiday Catalogue.


I die cut the deer from a piece of scrap card stock and used this as a mask. With a Sponge Dauber, on Whisper White card stock, I gently applied Cherry Cobbler ink in a circular motion. The card base and the swirls are cut from the beautiful new Shaded Spruce card stock. The greeting is from the Dashing Deer stamp set. Silver and white twine is wrapped around the card base and one red Rhinestone finishes the card.

Inside the card is a deer image and greeting, stamped in Cherry Cobbler and also from the Dashing Deer stamp set.


For a final round of Christmas inspiration from the Art With Heart Team head to Claire Daly's blog for a full list of today's participants.

Thank you for stopping by,
Happy stampin,
