Welcome to week 13 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!
This week we are showcasing one of the neutrals: Crumb Cake.
I probably use Crumb Cake more than any other colour (apart from Whisper White) because I find it such a perfect neutral to use with absolutely any colour. But for this week’s project, I decided to use it with white and black to showcase the crumb cake on its own, without any other colour dominating it.
I love the vintage/shabby chic effect you can get when you use this combination of colours, but it’s a style I don’t usually create with, so I had a lot of fun making my cards this week.
The stamp sets and coordinating dies are the Best Birds stamp set, Birds & Blooms Thinlits dies, and the Botanical bliss bundle.
My first card is a happy birthday card, featuring the largest bird from Best Birds stamp set. I’ve coloured its tummy in with the light Crumb Cake marker.
Like the other two cards, I’ve attached the sentiment onto a strip of burlap ribbon, tied on with some linen thread. The sentiments for all three cards come from the Botanical Bliss stamp set…I just love this font. The Crumb Cake die cut pieces on top of each card are cut with these co-ordinating dies.
My second card is an “Especially for You” card, and it features some of the gorgeous Tropical Chic embellishments.
My third card is my “Best Wishes” card and features the little bird from the Birds & Blooms Thinlits dies, cut out of the stunning Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, as well as the gold facetted gems in the centre of the flowers, and one tiny little Rhinestone Basic Jewel, coloured in with my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Up! blend.
For all three cards, I created my own patterned paper background, made by stamping images from both stamp sets in Crumb Cake and Basic Black onto Whisper White card stock, mounted onto Wood Textures Designer Series Paper with a Crumb Cake card stock base.
