Art With Heart Blog Hop - New 2019-2020 Catalogue Creations

     Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative products using supplies from the upcoming 2019 - 2020 annual catalogue. If you would like a copy of the brand new annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

     The bundle I have chosen to share with you from the new catalogue is called Bloom and Grow. The stamp set features three large, line art, floral images, five delightful greetings and a smattering of additional foliage to complete your projects. 
    For the first couple of cards I heat embossed the floral images with Gold Emboss powder and then watercoloured using an Aquapainter. I love how our inks can either be soft and subtle or bright and vibrant as they are here. The dies for this bundle include a scalloped strip which is perfect for creating a band to slip the flowers behind and also feature the greeting.

There are a few added foliage images in the background.

This next card I have seen many variations of on the internet and always wanted to case. The floral images in this set were perfect. The flowers are heat embossed in Gold and then watercoloured. The Unicorn horn is a triangle of Gold Glimmer Paper and the eyes were cut using the tail from the Fox Builder Punch as a guide. The ears were trimmed from ovals and the greeting is from the Magical Mermaid stamp set. The Whisper White background is mounted on a Purple Posy card base.

    The remainder of the cards have been stamped with Memento Black ink and coloured with Blends Markers. 
I love the colour combination of this card, using Seaside Spray and Petal Pink as the main colours, with a touch of Highland Heather and Bermuda Bay for added interest.

This card uses an autumnal collection of colours with Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler, very appropriate for this time of year in Melbourne. This was a very quick and simple card, perfect for a beginner stamper.

The final card I have to share uses another bold combination of colours, Poppy Parade, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive, with a tiny bit of Balmy Blue on the white flowers for added depth.

    These cards were all a pleasure to make, made easier by the coordinating dies to cut out the beautiful images with. I have to tell you I didn't buy this set but borrowed it from my wonderful downline Wendy as I wasn't sure about it, but I now think I will have to add it to my list.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented, Tina Gillespie

Happy stampin,
