Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 53 Terracotta Tile

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 53 Terracotta Tile

Welcome to week 53 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. We have extended our one year Colour Creations Blog Hop for another 5 weeks to introduce the 2019-21 Stampin’ Up! in colours.

This week’s colour is called Terracotta Tile – and it’s a colour that looks exactly like you’d expect!

At first I wasn’t sure what colours to use with Terracotta Tile but I’m really happy with this colour combination.

I really don’t know why this happens, but whenever I’m making a card using a colour I find tricky to work with, I often end up making more than one card. Here’s my first card.

Isn’t the pattern on the vases just gorgeous? I used my varied vases builder punch to punch the vases out from the new In Colour Designer Series Paper. It’s pictured here in Rococo Rose but the pack includes all 5 In Colours.

The Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins in Grapefruit Grove add a touch of bling to the card.

I wanted to try another colour combination for my second card. I think this colour combination makes Terracotta Tile look pinker.

Another favourite stamp set here…Rooted In Nature.

This really is simple stamping at it’s best and a great card for a beginner to try.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 52 Pretty Peacock

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 52 Pretty Peacock

Welcome to week 51 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. We have extended our one year Colour Creations Blog Hop for another 5 weeks to introduce the 2019-21 Stampin’ Up! in colours.

This week’s colour is a new teal coloured greeny blue called Pretty Peacock. Depending on the light and the other colours it is used with it can look either green or blue.

My inspiration this week was this patterned quilt cover I recently purchased from IKEA.

I live in a house full of men (even my dog is male!) so I decided to add a touch of pink to my multipurpose craft room/study/spare bedroom.

In real life, my Pretty Peacock cardstock is very close to the colour of my quilt but in the photos, it looks a lot greener.

I’ve used another gorgeous new in colour – Rococo Rose – to make my card base and then I’ve stamped Tropical Chic stamps in Pretty Peacock ink onto Pretty Peacock cardstock to reflect the watermark background effect on the quilt.

The flowers, bird land other leaves are all stamped using the new Free as a Bird stamp set.

I’ve stamped these images with Basic Black, Shaded Spruce and Pretty Peacock ink and then used watercolour pencils and my blender pens to colour in before fussy cutting my images out.

On the inside, a stamped rectangle of Whisper White provides a space to write a message.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 51 Rococo Rose

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 51 Rococo Rose

Welcome to week 51 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. We have extended our one year Colour Creations Blog Hop for another 5 weeks to introduce the 2019-21 Stampin’ Up! in colours.

This week’s colour is a new shade of pink called Rococo Rose. This is the brand new designer series paper for the 2019-21 Stampin’ Up! in colours.

I’ve combined Rococo Rose with Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black and Whisper White.

If you take a close look at my card it looks like I have also used a lighter pink and a lighter green but I have simply stamped off the Rococo Rose and the Pear Pizzazz.

I’ve used the gorgeous Abstract Impressions stamp set – I’m so glad this set carried over to the new catalogue because it is one of those stamp sets that works well with any colour.

There are no punches or dies used on this card so it really is #simplestamping.

I’ve used my black marker pen to hand doodle over the top of my stamped images. This is such a simple technique and I really love the extra detail and dimension this gives to my card.

To finish my card off I mounted the stamped image onto Basic Black before adhering to the Rococo Rose card.

On the inside, a stamped square of Whisper White provides a space to write a message.
