Welcome to week 9 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!
This week we are showcasing one of our new In Colours: Call Me Clover.
One of my favourite products in the Annual catalogue is the gorgeous Call Me Clover leaf ribbon, which I used last week to make a Taronga Zoo birthday card for my niece…and yes, she loved her card. In case you didn’t see my blog last week, here’s a photo of the card and you can see how this gorgeous ribbon adds so much dimension and texture to this card.
I had so much fun playing with this leaf ribbon I decided to use it again for this week’s blog, but this time for a completely different card: my very first Christmas card of the year!
The colour combination of Real Red and Call Me Clover really screams Christmas to me, and the leaf ribbon makes such a quick and easy Christmas wreath. I used the swirly frames stamp set to stamp the larger circle in Call Me Clover and then the inner circle in Real Red. The leaf ribbon was adhered to the larger circle with glue dots and then Red Rhinestone basic jewels add the final touch.
I chopped some of the leaves off the ribbon to make individual holly sprigs to add dimension to the “joy” sentiment, which was stamped by inking up just one part of a stamp from the “Ready for Christmas” stamp set.
While I had my swirly frames stamp set out I decided to also use it to CASE the card from page 137 of the annual catalogue. Here’s the original card from the catalogue stamped in in Old Olive and Lemon Lime Twist.
And here’s my version using Call Me Clover and Soft Sea Foam.
Did you notice the embossed backgrounds on both cards? The original card that I CASED has been embossed with the subtles folder, which I don’t have yet (it’s on my list!!) so instead, I used the climbing vine embossing folder…here’s another angle to show it to you in greater detail.
I love the look of Call Me clover with both Soft Sea Foam and Real Red, and I can’t wait to see what colours the rest of the Art With Heart Team have used on their Call Me Clover projects!
