Welcome to week 1 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!
Because we have 52 stunning Stampin’ Up! colours (not including Whisper White) and 52 weeks of the year, it really made sense to decide to do a weekly blog hop to showcase each and every one of these beautiful colours.
Stampin’ Up! have had a colour refresh this year, introducing 10 new core colours, 6 returning favourites, and 5 new in colours. Here’s the entire list of Stampin’ Up! colours for 2018-2019.
Working through the colours in alphabetical order, we begin our blog hop this week with a brand new colour: Balmy Blue. Balmy Blue is part of the subtles colour family and a great replacement for the now retired Marina Mist.
To showcase this colour I’ve paired it with a classic and elegant colour combination of neutrals: Night of Navy and Whisper White, with just a touch of Old Olive for the leaves in the bouquet. Something old and something new… Night of Navy and Balmy Blue.
This card uses one of my all-time favourite stamp sets, Beautiful Bouquet, with the matching Bouquet Bunch Framelits dies.
That little gift tag is just the sweetest…can you see it peeping out from behind the Night of Navy bakers twine?
I’m hopeless at remembering to stamp the inside of my cards so I’ve set myself a personal challenge with this blog, to stamp the inside of every card!
I’m really looking forward to using Balmy Blue with lots of different colour combinations and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have come up with today. Just click on the links below to see what they’ve all made.
