Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 31 Mossy Meadow

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 31 Mossy Meadow

Welcome to week 31 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is a previous in colour that has now returned to be a core part of the neutrals family: Mossy Meadow

For my card today I’ve gone for a very soft, paired back look using a brand new stamp set called Bloom by Bloom. I love the graphic design elements of this Marimekko inspired design.

In the catalogue, the samples for this stamp set are all created with very bold colours (which I love), but I’m also really loving this softer colour combination of all neutrals: Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake, Basic Black and Whisper White.

When you stamp onto coloured card stock you get get a slightly translucent feel to the images. I’ve stamped onto Crumb Cake card stock with the Mossy Meadow (stamped off once because it is a very dark green) and Whisper White and Basic Black stamped at full strength.

Did you notice the stitched rectangle framelits?…I just can’t stop using these! I was trying to create a simple stamping card (and succeeding) until I couldn’t resist using the framelits (I used the largest one), adding a linen thread bow and some clear rhinetones. But you could easily omit these elements and make a lovely card with this design just using papaer and ink.

Because the Bloom by Bloom stamp set doesn’t have a sentiment I’ve used a lovely sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 30 Mint Macaron

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 30 Mint Macaron

Welcome to our first blog hop for 2019, week 30 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is a previous in colour that has now returned to be a core part of the subtles family: Mint Macaron

For my card today I’m using something old and something new. The something old is the stunning Frosted Floral speciality DSP (retiring very soon) and the silver foil edged cards and envelopes.

My something new is three of my favourite products from the new Occasions catalogue: stitched rectangles framelits and the Butterfly Gala bundle (Butterfly Duet punch and Butterfly Gala stamp set).

The botanical pattern on this DSP is so soft and inviting I just knew the butterflies would look right at home landing on these stems and leaves.

The butterflies are incredibly easy to make because the Butterfly Gala stamp set comes with the matching Butterfly Duet punch that punches out one large and one small butterfly.

I stamped one pair of butterflies in Versamark ink onto mint macaron cardstock and then heat embossed with white embossing powder, then the other pair were stamped with mint macaron ink onto whisper white cardstock.

The butterfly’s antennas are made from mint macaron twine from the Nature’s Twine set and are embellished with clear rhinestones.

I’m in love with the font of this sentiment and the stunning stitched rectangle framelits!
