Art With Heart Team Blog Hop - New Catalogue

 
 
Tonight I am participating in a blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some fabulous ideas to inspire you from our brand new 2017-2018 annual catalogue, which is available 1st June. Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today! The first project I have for you uses the new Crate Die and the new Wood Textures DSP, which comes in a 6"x6" stack. The foliage is from the Jar of Love set. The other new products I have used on the front of the card are one of the In Colour Bitty Bows in Berry Burst and the Powder Pink edges done with the Ticket Tear Border Punch.
 
 
These self adhesive bows are extremely easy to use.
On the inside of the card I have used one cut out from the crate die. Usually, to make a complete crate, you will need two pieces. I adhered the crate to the inside of the card and used an addition piece as a brace, and to attach some of the foliage to. I will be creating a tutorial as to how this was done shortly. 
Contact me if you would like one when available.
The colours I used for the flowers are Berry Burst, Powder Pink, and Fresh Fig, and for the foliage, Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand.
The second card I have to show you features a set that caught my attention as soon as I saw the Catalogue. It's called Bright Wishes and this image of a wishing well is perect for colouring. I used Blender Pens on Shimmery White paper this time, but you could also use the Watercolour Pencils or an Aquapainter with the inks on watercolour paper..
Once again I have use a piece of Wood Textures DSP, Love this paper!
On the inside I stamped the image in Crumb Cake ink, and softly coloured the flowers in Powder Pink and a few leaves in Pear Pizzazz.
I hope you enjoyed my little preview from the upcoming catalogue, there's plenty more to come. Next stop on the hop is Caroline.

  8. I love the simplicity of the front of your first card, but what a WOW effect when you open it! So beautiful! Your colouring on the second is gorgeous, and I love the way you've just coloured small parts of the inside image. I will have to remember that trick!
