Art With Heart June Blog Hop: In Colour Theme

Art With Heart June Blog Hop: In Colour Theme

Tonight the Art With Heart Team are sharing creative projects featuring in colour theme. Check out the new 2019 – 2021 in colours and let’s not forget the current 2018 – 2020 in colours.

If you would like a copy of the 2019 – 2020 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

Why use just one In Colour when you can use all 10 together on your card. Lined up, side-by-side, they create such a stunning rainbow!

I’m excited to share not one but two cards with you this week.

The first card showcases all 10 In Colours, as well as the Free as a Bird stamp set.

The first step is to cut a 1cm strip of card stock from every In Colour. Line then up in rainbow order and adhere together with strips of tear and tape.

Next stamp your image or sentiment in Versamark, dust with white embossing power and heat emboss. Mount onto black card stock.

The background layer is a piece of Whisper White cardstock which has been stamped with black ink and coloured in with a variety of Blends and markers in the various In Colours. I love creating my own Designer Series Paper for my projects.

Mount the rainbow cardstock onto the middle of your DSP and adhere to a cardbase made from black cardstock.

I wasn’t planning on making a second card but I had leftover rainbow strips so I decided to see what they looked like with a sentiment stamped on top.

This time I used the Colourful Seasons stampset for my sentiment and the home made DSP. I deliberately die cut the cardstock on an angle using a stitiched rectangle die to add visual interest.

The background was stamped with two of the smallest dies in black and In Colours. Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots add texture and interest.

These rainbow colours just make me feel very happy and I hope they also put a smile on the face of whoever I post them to.

Art With Heart May Blog Hop: 2019 – 2020 Catalogue Preview

Art With Heart May Blog Hop: 2019 – 2020 Catalogue Preview

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative products using supplies from the upcoming 2019 – 2020 annual catalogue.

If you would like a copy of the brand new annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

My cards tonight were inspired by the splashback in my powder room. It goes all the way from the basin to the ceiling but here’s just a snippet of these beautiful encaustic tiles.

As soon as I saw the new Verdant Garden stamp set I knew I would use it to make a card inspired by the tiles in my splashback.

Combined with the colour scheme of the Scalloped Linen Ribbon (oh be still my beating heart!!!) it also proved to be an excellent opportunity to introduce you to the new 2019-20 in colours.

First cab off the rank? Seaside Spray.

Seaside Spray is definitely one of my new favourite colours. How good does it look with Crumb Cake? (And yes I have deliberately referenced ScoMo for his incredibly versatile “motherhood and apple pie” statement).

Next, I’d like to introduce you to Terracotta Tile. I think Terracotta tile is going to get on famously with its closest cousin, Cajun Craze.

Rococo Rose is another new favourite, such a soft and gentle pink I just know I’ll be using a lot.

Pretty Peacock is very dark and rich – I can’t wait to team it with Night of Navy!

There is one more lovely 2019-202 in colour called Purple Posy that I haven’t included this week because the ink pad is not orderable yet. If you’re wondering what it looks like it’s a very pale purple, sort of a love child of Highland Heather and Smokey Slate.

Here’s a closer look at the other 4 in colours.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 36 Petal Pink

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 36 Petal Pink

Welcome to week 36 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is another one from the subtles family: Petal Pink.

At first glance Petal Pink, Powder Pink and Blushing Bride all look very similar but when you line them up side by side Petal Pink has a lot more orange in it, which is why it makes such a great skin tone.

Petal Pink was the perfect colour for me to use for this gorgeous little bunny from the new Fable Friends stamp set. Although this staamp is reminiscent of Peter Rabbit with his little blue jacket I decided to mix it up and create a soft grey female bunny with a petal pink jacket.

After stamping the image, I coloured the bunny in with Smoky Slate and Petal Pink blender pens, die cut it out with the largest oval from the stitched framelits die set and made a fun fold card…although I’m not sure what this type of fold is actually called!

The beautiful DSP is from two sets: the striped paper and the spotted paper inside the card are from the Subtles Designer Series Paper, however the larger dotted paper on the outside of the card is from the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper.

In addition to the rabbit from Fable Friends, I used two stamps from the Incredible Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set: the “I adore you” sentiment and the dots I’ve stamped in Petal Pink down the right hand side of the card.

The final touch is a bow made from the new Petal Pink/Whisper White Variegated Ribbon.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 35 Pear Pizzazz

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 35 Pear Pizzazz

Welcome to week 35 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is from the subtles family: Pear Pizzazz.

Pear Pizzazz is yet another colour I have not paid enough attention to and certainly not used enough!

However, the colour combination in the stunning Floral Romance DSP pack really caught my eye (Fresh Fig, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink, Sahara Sand, Whisper White and Pear Pizzaz) and so I decided to use it for my card this week.

I started with a Memories and More Card onto which I mounted the soft wood grain patterned DSP in Sahara Sand. You can see this lovely neutral background more clearly on my card below.

I then used two of the long thin Stitched Rectangle Framelits to cut out a rectangle of Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White. The congratulations sentiment comes from the Ballon Celebration stamp set…I love the long thin elegance of this font.

The gorgeous clusters of flowers and leaves I simply fussy cut using my paper snips from a sheet of the patterned vellum. To further add texture and dimension I used my bone folder to curl the leaves up.

I arranged the leaves and flower around the sentiment and adhered them using glue dots. A small bow of Old Olive sheer ribbon adds even more dimension.

The remaining leaves and flowers I used to decorate the flap of the envelope as well as inside the card. The “you are amazing” sentiment inside the card comes from the Amazing Life stamp set.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 34 Pacific Point

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 34 Pacific Point

Welcome to week 34 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is from the bright’s family: Pacific Point.

This is such a vibrant, beautiful blue…but I have to admit I rarely use it because Night of Navy is such a favourite of mine. But after using it this week (along with Bermuda Bay, Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White) to make these beautiful butterflies I think it’s a colour I’ll be using a lot more from now on.

If you look closely at the photo above you’ll see the new butterfly punch, watercolour pencils in Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay…

…and sorry (but not really sorry) the stitched rectangle framelits yet again!

For my first card, I stamped in Stazon ink onto watercolour paper, then simply coloured the edges of my butterflies with the Pacific Point watercolour pencil and used the blender pen to blend the blue in, leaving some white space towards the centre of the butterfly.

After punching the butterflies out I stamped the body of the butterfly and attached it with glue dots to whisper white card stock. The antenna was stamped after the butterfly was attached.

For all three cards, I mounted the whisper white card stock onto some Soft Sea Foam card stock before mounting onto a rectangle of Pacific Point and then onto a Memories and More small card that comes with its own envelope.

I find most of the blues and greens usually work really well together.

My other two cards are horizontal, using two of the other butterfly stamps in the Butterfly Gala stamp set. I used both watercolour pencils in Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay, blending again with the blender pan.

I also played around with the positioning of the sentiment and the butterflies for my third card.

I love this stamp set because it is so easy to colour in different ways. You can stamp the colour using the stamps provided, use your markers, your blends, your watercolour pencils, or even lift the ink direct from your ink pad to colour the butterflies in.

And butterflies look incredible in any colour combination, thery are just so beautiful!

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 33 Old Olive

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 33 Old Olive

Welcome to week 33 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is probably my go-to green: Old Olive.

I just can’t seem to stop using these stitched rectangle framelits at the moment…I think I have an addiction!! I’ve just counted and realised I’ve used 5 different sizes in my card below.

The stamp set is so stunning and its one of the host sets from the annual catalogue, called Very Vintage, I love this set because it has 5 great sentiments in different fonts, a stamp that matches the Darling Label punch, the cutest little bee stamp and the stunning floral stamp I’ve used on my card today!

The colour combination is so simple…Old olive and Very Vanilla. My default neutral is always Whisper White but Very Vanilla works better for shabby chic/vintage style designs and Old Olive looks great with either colour.

If you take a close look at my photos you’ll be able to see the adhesive strips I’ve used to lift up my frame and the happy birthday sentiment. The frame is so easy to make with the stitched rectangles because the stitching is on both sides of the die.

And take a closer look at the lovely Old Olive linen thread!
