Colour Creations Showcase week 13 - Crumb Cake


Welcome to week 13 of the Colour Creations Showcase with the Art with Heart Team, Every week we are featuring one of the Stampin' Up! colours. For week 13 we are featuring one of our Neutral colours, Crumb Cake. Crumb Cake is my favourite go to Neutral colour.

This week I decided to use Crumb Cake card stock as the background for some plum puddings and hearts. The stamp set I used is Sweets & Treats from the July to Dec Mini Catalogue.

The puddings and hearts were stamped in Memento Black ink.

I coloured the images with both of the Watercolour Pencil Assortments. The colours I used were Early Espresso, White, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Flirty Flamingo, Pumpkin Pie, Granny Apple Green and Garden Green.

I wrapped Linen Thread a couple of times around the bottom of the card and then tied a bow. The greeting is stamped in Real Red ink on Basic White card stock. I cut a banner end on the right side of the greeting and attached it to the card with Dimensionals. 

The mat behind the Crumb Cake piece is Real Red and the card base is Granny Apple Green. 

All of the products I have used to make this card are listed below and are available in my online store.

For more amazing Crumb Cake inspiration the next stop on our blog hop is the lovely Rosa Leyden.
