Art With Heart Colour Creations - Highland Heather

  This week’s Colour Creation colour is Highland Heather. Yay for a beautiful bold purple!  
I made this first card with my Stamparatus. I was having a bit of an experiment and play with different techniques with this new tool when I came up with this Happy Birthday image from the All For One stamp set.
The colours I used are Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo and of course, Highland Heather.
 For the background I used the Buffallo Check on Whisper White card stock. Again I used the Stamapratus which is very handy when the image needs to be inked and stamped again if it’s not quite perfect the first time. The only embelishment needed is a bow from Basic Black Satin Ribbon. 
    The second card I made using Highland Heather uses the Puzzle Pieces Bundle from Stampin’ Up!                 
 The puzzle die was embossed onto Whisper White card stock using the Bigshot Embossing Mats. The heart image was stamped on Shimmery White card stock and then cut out with the coordinating die.
The greeting is mounted on a doliy, white side up, and a couple of leaf pieces cut with the leaf punch from Mint Macron card stock. The final embellishment is a small piece of Whhite Polka Dot Tulle coloured with the Highland Heather Blends. This is a great way to get more ribbons and embelishments in a wider range of colours.
I hooe you enjoyed my projects today.

Happy stampin,


  1. Gorgeous cards Rachel. Love the colour combination and who can go passed a beautiful plaid.

  2. Rachel both these cards are lovely and your hand died polka dots ribbon really pops on the second card. Thank you for hopping along tonight.

  3. Beautiful cards, Rach, but I am drawn to the plaid and the bright sentiment, lovely!

  4. Love your cards Ros, I'm glad I don't have to pick a favourite as i'm sure I would be able too.
