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.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented,  Rachel Palmieri.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 49 Soft  Suede

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 49 Soft Suede

Welcome to week 49 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop – we have been hopping every week for nearly one year now!

Another week and another colour I really haven’t used much before.

Soft Suede belongs in our neutral colour family but if I want to use a shade of brown I either reach for the Early Espresso (if I want a dark brown) or Crumb Cake, which is my absolute favourite neutral! So I have to admit this colour was quite a challenge for me!

I decided to use a retiring favourite of mine: the Oh So Eclectic stamp set with the matching Eclectic Layering dies for my card this week.

My colour combination is a classic one: shades of brown with a touch of white and pale blue.

And here’s what I came up with.

I photographed my card in front of the lovely Mother’s Day flowers my eldest son bought for me. It’s now over a week since Mother’s Day and they are still looking lovely, brightening up my kitchen and putting a smile on my face every time I walk into the room!

Take a closer look at the stunning copper trim…I love how you can pull this trim apart (as I have done here) or use it off the reel as a narrower trim.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 48 Soft  Seafoam

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 48 Soft Seafoam

Welcome to week 48 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is a subtle colour: Soft Seafoam.

Because I always forget to use my embossing folders I made sure I used one for my card this week that I knew would really stand out: the Corrugated Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.

I love this soft green when it’s paired with black and white. And I also love this stamp set that’s about the retire: All That You Are. It co-ordinates with the Frosted Bouquet Dies and I’ve used both the stamp sets and dies for my birthday card today. It’s such a beautiful font.

If you take a close look at the flower on the bottom right you’ll see I’ve added a touch of dimension by applying some of the fine-tipped glue to the centre of the flower.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 47 So Saffron

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 47 So Saffron

Welcome to week 47 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is a subtle colour: So Saffron.

This soft yellow is used in one of my favourite Designer Series Papers: Garden Impressions. So I made a couple of cards to show off these lovely impressionist papers.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 46 Smokey Slate

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 46 Smokey Slate

Welcome to week 46 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is a very light neutral colour: Smokey Slate.

Because these neutrals go with every colour I thought it would be a perfect colour to showcase our retiring In-Colours in a series of cards that use other retiring products too.

I like to call this set my typing pool!

I decided to use the delightful “P.S. You’re the Best stamp set” as it was just perfect for my friend Bruce. I’m going to his 50th birthday party this weekend and he is an author and currently writing his next book.

I think I’ll give Bruce the Lemon-lime twist card with the festive balloon paper from the Broadway Bound Designer Series Paper.

What I really like about this stamp set is that you can use it with any colour to make either male or female cards. The Powder Pink card is very feminine.

The Fresh Fig card is also very feminine, using the Petal Promenade DSP

The Berry Burst card and the Tranquil tide card could work for men or women and both use the Tranquil Textures DSP.

My favourite thing about my typing pool cards is the way they open…it is a type of fancy fold but I’m not sure what it’s called!

Another fantastic retiring product I used was the Envelope punch board to make a matching envelope for each card.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 45 Shaded Spruce

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 45 Shaded Spruce

Welcome to week 45 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!

Our colour this week is a very dark regal colour: Shaded Spruce.

Stampin’ Up has some lovely Designer Series Papers that feature Shaded Spruce and I used two of these for my card today: Garden Impressions and Tropical Escape DSP.

My card uses a mix of die cutting and fussy cutting.

I stamped my birds in black ink onto the Garden Impressions DSP before die cutting them out. The branch they sit on has been die cut from the Wood Textures DSP.

The pink roses have been fussy cut from the Garden Impressions DSP, but the leaves have been die cut from the Tropical Escape DSP.

The card base is Shaded Spruce card stock topped with a rectangle of striped paper from the Tropical Escape DSP.
