Welcome to week four of our Art With Heart 2024-25 Colour Creations blog hop!

Today we’re featuring another of the new 2024-26 In Colors: Shy Shamrock. I’ve created this graphic to show how Shy Shamrock compares to the current blue/greens in the Stampin Up! colour range.

This week’s card continues my Country Woods Suite theme. My Shy Shamrock card uses the teapot in the Country Flowers stamp set to create a retro 50’s colour scheme Happy Birthday card.

If you’ve never created your own pattern using stamps before I recommend you begin by drawing a grid on your card front with a pencil you can rub out later. Use these grid lines to guide you and always stamp the images in your pattern off the sides of your cardstock.

Did you notice the teapot lids on my teapots? Although there is a teapot lid die in the Country Flowers dies, unfortunately there is no teapot lid stamp in the Country Flowers stamp set.

I watched Susan Wong draw her own teapot lids with a fine line marker in a Crafty Carrot video and I loved this idea so I CASED it! I first stamped the single line stamp and then drew the rest of the lid with my fine line marker.

My 50’s retro colour scheme pairs Shy Shamrock with Poppy Parade, Old Olive and Pool Party, using Stampin’ Blends to colour and shade the teapots.

Basic Rhinestones add a touch of bling. I’ve used Stampin’ Blends! to colour the Rhinestones on the teapots.

I stamped the inside of the card too.
