Colour Creations Blog Hop week 12 - Blueberry Bushel Tools


Hello stamping friends, it's time for week 12 of the Colour Creations Blog Hop. This week we are featuring Blueberry Bushel, a wonderfully deep, rich blue.

For this week's card I had a lovely time water colouring some tools. I used the Trusty Toolbox stamp set to randomly stamp hammers, tape measures and paint brushes on a piece of Fluid 100 Water Color Paper.

The colours I used were Blueberry Bushel, Smoky Slate, Crumb Cake and Pecan Pie.

I got the large Water Painter very wet with a Blueberry Bushel mix and tapped it over the water colour paper to create the splatters.

Happy Father's Day is stamped in Blueberry Bushel and DAD is heat embossed in white embossing powder.

Next person in our blog hop is my fabulous stamping friend Andrea Sargent.

Please return next week when we will be featuring Boho Blue.

Colour Blocked Sweet Peas

 I was having a play with the Sweet Peas stamp set by Stampin' Up! and was inspired to revisit a card layout that I used previously. You can see my original card here.

I chose 4 images to heat embossed on Shy Shamrock, Blackberry Bliss, Petunia Pop and Shaded Spruce.

I trimmed each image so that they fit together on a Basic White mat. The card base is Shy Shamrock.

Thanks for visiting, don't forget we have Bonus Days at Stampin' Up! for the remainder of this month.

Happy stamping,

Colour Creations Blog Hop week 11 - Blackberry Bliss


For the Colour Creation Blog Hop this week we are featuring Blackberry Bliss. Blackberry Bliss is a rich, dark purple colour that started it's time with Stampin Up! as an In Colour and has now returned to the range as a core colour.

For today's card I have chose to use a Designer Series Paper that is still available in the Clearance Rack. The Clearance is the best place to pick up a bargain. It is updated regularly with newly retired products so check in regularly to purchase great products at a reduced rate. This DSP is called Favored Flowers.

I used a strip of paper 10cm wide and 28.7cm long. This piece was folded in half and then I inserted the folded end into the Heartfelt Hexagon Punch and punched a hole. 

The card insert then covers the hole in the back panel. The DSP was then adhered to a Blackberry Bliss card base. This is a great card to show off both sides of our lovely DSP, and any shape of punch could be used for the window, depending on the size of your greeting.

I stamped the medium and tiny butterflies from the Sketched Butterflies stamp set on Fresh Freesia card stock. I coloured them with Blends Markers and then fussy cut them out.

The leaf sprig is from the Stippled Roses Dies in Soft Sea Foam card stock.
A couple of the tiny butterflies are attached to the inside of the card and the medium butterfly is on the outside of the card with the leaves.
All of the products used for this card are available through my online store.

Let's hop around to the next stop on our blog hop, my lovely stamping friend Sharon Davern.
