Welcome to week twelve of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Calypso Coral.
Unfortunately, I had to make some sympathy cards this week so I reached for the Awash in Beauty suite. I love the soft watercolour flowers in this suite and the sentiments in the True Beauty Stamp Set include “Here for you always” and “with love” – just perfect for a sympathy card.
This large lattice die can be used for masking or as a background die to give an embossed effect as I’ve done on this card.
Just remember to attach an adhesive sheet to the card stock before die cutting – it makes it very easy to position and adhere to the card base.
Would you believe that apart from the sentiment, there is no stamping at all on this card? These gorgeous flowers and leaves are all images from the Awash in Beauty Designer Series Paper, die cut with the coordinating Organic Beauty dies.
I love how Calypso Coral looks when it’s paired with these other colours in a bunch of flowers.
The “Here For You Always” sentiment was stamped in Mossy Meadow onto a 3/4 inch strip of DSP and then cut to the desired length using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.
My favourite ribbon from the July-December Mini catalogue is the Gold & Vanilla 3/8″ (1 cm) Satin Edged Ribbon. I’ve cut a length of it in half to create a double bow with the metallic Simply Elegant Trim.
Because this card wasn’t going in the post – it was hand delivered with a bunch of flowers – I used my bone folder and fingers to curl up the edges of all of the flowers, adding a lot of dimension to the card.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Ros Davidson – I can’t wait to see what Ros has made this week!
