Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 18 Fresh Fig

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 18 Fresh Fig

Welcome to week 16 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

This week we are showcasing one of the 2017-2019 in colours: Fresh Fig.

For my Fresh Fig card, I used some of the stunning Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, which is Very Vanilla on one side and Whisper White on the other. I love both Very Vanilla and Whisper White with Fresh Fig but I decided to use the Whisper White for my card today.

I used the leaf punch to continue the leaf theme of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and then topped my card off with a little bird die cut from the Birds and Blooms thinlits. My little bird’s eye is a Rich Razzleberry pearl from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.

Gray Granite is rapidly becoming one of my most used neutral colours, and I’ve used it here along with Basic Black for my punched out leaves. Gray Granite is also is the colour of the braided linen trim, that I’ve used across the front of the card. The name of this ribbon can be a little confusing because the Stampin’ Up! linen thread is closer to Crumb Cake in colour, but this Braided Linen Trim is much closer to Gray Granite.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 17 Flirty Flamingo

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 17 Flirty Flamingo

Welcome to week 16 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

This week we are showcasing one of the brights: Flirty Flamingo!

For my Flirty Flamingo card I’m using one of the loveliest stamp sets from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue: Wishing You Well. This stamp set can be used for Christmas cards, sympathy cards or even for “just a note” cards you might want to send to somebody for a variety of reasons.

Wishing You Well is a “distinctive” stamp set, which means it adds monochromatic dimension by creating different opacities in a single stamped image. This provides a realistic depth and intensity to the image and gives a lovely watercoloured look…without any of the hard work!

Although Flirty Flamingo is a bright colour, I love the look of it with one of the subtle colours: Pear Pizzaz.

I’ve added some bling to this card by using my Dark Flirty Flamingo Blender Pen to colour in some Clear Rhinestone Jewels.

The sentiment has been stamped and then layered using two punches. The Classic Label punch punched out the Whisper White layer onto which the sentiment was stamped onto, then I also punched out some Pear Pizzaz cardstock using the Pretty Label punch to add some more dimension. The photo below shows how I cut off the top and the bottom of the Pretty Label shape to make a long rounded rectangle shape.

I just love the soft watercolour look this distinctive stamp set gives…with very little work on my behalf!
