Welcome to week forty-eight of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop – only two weeks to go!

Our colour this week is Starry Sky, one of the 2022-24 In Colors that is about to retire. I’ve paired it with another retiring 2022-24 In Color, Orchid Oasis to make a turtle birthday card.

This is simple-to-make monochromatic card achieves its visual interest thanks to the incredible Rays Of Light stamp set that is also about to retire. I’m really going to miss this background stamp.

Another stamp about to retire is the Sending Smiles Stamp set, which I’ve used to stamp the birthday sentiment. Luckily the reversible Sea Turtle stamp set is carrying over to the new catalogue.

After stamping the Rays of Light stamp in Starry Sky I used a blending brush to add a touch of Orchid Oasis around the border.

The reversible turtle was stamped in both Starry Sky and Orchid Oasis before being fussy cut and adhered to the Rays of Light layer with dimensionals.

The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Shock, horror, I’ve actually remembered to stamp the inside of my card as well!

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rachel Palmieri. I can’t wait to see what Rachel has made this week!
