Welcome to week forty six of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop – only four more weeks to go!
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 Smoky Slate from the Neutrals family.
Stampin’ Up! have a colour refresh happening and all the demonstrators get to find out the new colours and the retiring this Thursday morning – so exciting. Smoky Slate is part of the neutrals family – I love the versatility of all these neutrals and I don’t want any of them to retire!
I know it’s an obvious choice, however I couldn’t resist using the Elephant Parade bundle for my centre step card tonight. The cuteness factor in these elephants is simply wow!
The cardbase is Smoky Slate cardstock and the gorgeous background DSP on my centre step card is from the Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper.
I stamped the three elephants with Memento ink and then coloured them in using Smoky Slate and Flirty Flamingo Stampin Blends. The balloon is coloured in Flirty Flamingo Stampin Blends, the Monstera leaves in Old Olive Stampin Blends and the tree trunk is a stamp from the Sweet Songbirds stamp set, stamped in Basic Gray.
The sentiment is from the Elephant Parade Stamp set, cut using my paper snips.
Where’s the third elephant, I hear you ask? Well, why don’t you take a peek inside the card!
The grass on both the front and the inside of the card is die cut from Old Olive cardstock, using a die in the Elephant Parade dies.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Fiona Ryan – I can’t wait to see what Fiona has made this week!
