Colour Creations Blog Hop 2022-2024 In Colours - Parakeet Party


Welcome to week two of the 2022-2023 Colour Creations Blog Hop with the Art With Heart Team.
We are beginning this year by featuring our 5 new 2022-2024 In Colours in alphabetical order. Last week was the beautiful Orchid Oasis and this week we continue with Parakeet Party. Parakeet Party is a bright lime green colour. I struggled to decide on an idea to feature this colour. I finally turned to my unopened (eeek) Light the Candles Kit. 

This kit includes all of the supplies needed to make 8 cards with beautiful coordinating envelopes.
It even includes a clear block, an ink spot and self adhesive embellishments.
What first drew me to this kit was the really versatile stamp set that is also included in this kit.

To make my card this week I used one of the cake cut outs  and adhered Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide In Colour DSP on the reverse side.
The cake piece is mounted on Tahitian Tide card stock. I love how these two new colours really pop together.
I stamped the greeting in Parakeet Party ink and then snipped the words apart so that they wold fit along one side of the card. 
Wink of Stella Pen was applied to the flame to add a bit of sparkly to the card.

After a very slow start with this card I am very happy with how it turned out. Maybe I should have opened the kit ages ago😉. All of the products I have used to make this card are listed below. Please contact me with any questions.

Now it's to see what amazing project Rosa Leyden has to share with us.

If you encounter any problems with our Blog Hop links please head to Cathy Proctor's Blog as she it the coordinator and will have a complete list of tonight's participants.

Happy stamping and thanks for visiting,


  1. Rachel, I bought this kit for this stamp set too - it is fab and I love how you've used the stamp set and other elements in this kit to create something totally different. Your card is so clever and so cute!

    A great card Rachel. I have been trying to resist this kit - but you are making my resolve weaken. I love the way you have altered the card using some of the elements. Brilliant. Xxx

  3. That slice of cake looks fabulous and love the colours on your card Rachel. Such a happy card!

  4. Hehehe, I'm another one who got this kit just for the stamp set! You've done a great job with it - I really should branch out and use the rest of the kit!

  5. I love how you've adapted this card kit, Rachel; those two colours look fab together! Such a fun birthday card. I really like how you placed the sentiment.

  6. I love the Tahitian/Parakeet combo! Gorgeous card, I’ve been tempted to get this kit for a while now!

  7. Such a lovely bright and happy birthday card Rachel and you are right those 2 new In Colours do go well together.

  8. A very happy card, Rachel, using Parakeet Party to liven it up. I bought this kit for the stamps too!

  9. What a fantastic card Rachel and I love the colour pop of the 2 colours together. I love kits and I may just have to buy it now seeing it in action and those stamps are fantastic!

  10. The colours you have used on your card kit version look amazing together. Great colour combo together.
