Cupcakes anyone?
Tonight's cards feature cupcakes made from the Sale-a-bration Hello Cupcake stamp set and the matching framelit dies, Call Me Cupcake available tomorrow with the Sale-a-bration Coordination promotion. I love this soft colour combination of Soft Seafoam, Petal Pink, Mint Macaron, and Flirty Flamingo. 

The cake cover is cut from Vellum and I have heat embossed the handle in silver to match the other silver accents.

The next card has a few less layers, but also uses the Hello Cupcake stamp set and framelit dies. The colours used here are Grapefruit Grove, Pool Party, Early Espresso and Pineapple punch for the flames on the candles. The rectangle has been cut using our amazing new Stitched Rectangular dies. I love these dies and have found them very useful since I purchased them from the Occasions Catalogue.

The final card I have to share with you was great fun to make, the Call Me Cupcake dies were essential.
I used colours from the How Sweet It Is DSP, Coastal Cabana, Melon Mambo, and also Powder Pink.

The center panel of the card lifts up to reveal the cupcake on the stand, 

 and the card also opens as a standard card to reveal the greeting inside.

 Thank you for visiting my blog and I hop my projects have inspired you to make the most of the Sale-a-bration products.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented Rebecca Jacovou.

Art With Heart Colour Creations - Pineapple Punch

This week's Colour Creation colour is Pineapple Punch, and wow does it pack a punch! I'm still finding it a challenge to use this bright, vibrant yellow, but I managed to make a card to share with you today.
I used the Sale-a-bration stamp set So Hoppy Together and the coordinating dies Hop Around Framelit dies, which are available to purchase from Friday the 1st of March, but only for one month. Contact me for more information.

The card base for this card is Pineapple Punch. I have heat embossed the dragonfly image from So Hoppy Together and the reeds from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set in Pineapple Punch embossing powder. If you missed this embossing powder in the catalogue it comes in a set with the other 2018-2020 In-colours.   
I have die cut three Stitched Rectangles(love these dies!!) in Lemon Lime Twist, Call Me Clover and Whisper White. The reeds were stamped in Call Me Clover and Lemon Lime Twist.  The frog and crown were stamped in Memento Black and coloured with Stampin' Blends markers.  They were then die cut using the Hop Around Framelit dies, as was the lily pad under the frog. The greeting was stamped in Call Me Clover. For more Pineapple Punch inspiration head to Cathy's blog for a full list of today's participants. Thank you for hopping by, Happy stampin, Rachel

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.

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.
