Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 5 Blushing Bride

Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase: Week 5 Blushing Bride

Welcome to week five of our 2020-2021 Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase.

Each week various members of our Art With Heart Colour Creations team will be bringing you weekly colour inspiration as we showcase our range of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.

Week 5 -Blushing Bride

Blushing Bride is part of the Subtles collection of colours. It is available as a Classic Stampin’ Pad and ink refill, Stampin’ Write marker, Subtle Designer Series Paper and Gorgeous Posies Card Kit, or you can purchase it within any of the Subtles collections.

My card today is a sweet little birdhouse that features the Stampin’ Up! Birds & Branches Bundle. How cute are these little birds!

Blushing Bride looks amazing with any shade of brown so this is the colour combination I chose today.

I wanted to create a birdhouse very simply without using fussy templates so I decided to make a square card that folds at the top and then attach a roof to the top fold.

The new Triangle stitched dies made this super easy to do – I simply attached them to the top fold with Tear’n’tape after my card was completed.

Here’s a closer look at my sweet little birds. I stamped them in Sahara Sand and then Early Espresso – To create my birds with Two-Step Stampin’, I stamped the silhouette image in Sahara Sand and then stamped the detailed image in Early Espresso. I used my water painter to add a touch of Blushing Bride to their tummies.

The Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty paper, Gold Metallic Trim and Gilded Gems in the middle of the Blushing Bride flowers are the final touch, with the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Blossoms in Bloom Stamp Set stamped in Early Espresso.

I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have created with Blushing Bride today.

Farewell to 2019-20 Retiring Products – Peaceful Poppies Elements

Farewell to 2019-20 Retiring Products – Peaceful Poppies Elements

Something old, something new…

Today I’m giving you a sneak peek of the Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty paper, the Forever Greenery Trim combo pack…and farewelling a beautiful product you might have previously overlooked: The Peaceful Poppies elements.

Let’s take a look at this stunning new Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty paper. In each pack you receive 6 sheets in total, three each of two different designs. One side of the paper is gold and the other side is white. This photo shows the two different designs in both gold and in white.

Here’s a close up of the white side of the sheets with card front sized pieces.

The other sheet has a wreath, boughs and beautiful leaves.

The two cards I’ve made today also use the soon to be retired Peaceful Poppies Elements. As you can see in my photo below there are three different elements in the Peaceful Poppies Elements: top left is embossed watercolour paper, top middle are card stock die cut images and top right is embossed vellum.

My “Happy Birthday” card uses the white side of one of the Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty paper card fronts, and the Peaceful Poppies Elements embossed watercolour paper.

To colour my poppies I transferred Flirty Flamingo ink and Granny Apple Green ink directly from my ink pads onto acrylic blocks and then used my aqua painter brush to lift the ink off the block and colour in the poppies and leaves.

Once they were dry I attached them the card front, added a strip of gold from the edge of the specialty paper, as well as a sentiment and a bow of the new gold trim. Some gold sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins complete my card. I love how this new gold trim frays at the end!

The other card uses the wreath from the other sheet of the Forever Gold Laser-cut Specialty paper, and the vellum and die cut Peaceful Poppies Elements. I used my Old Olive Blend pen to colour the reverse side on the vellum leaves before adhering to the wreath.

Again, a sentiment, a bow of the new gold trim and assorted sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins complete my card.

Tomorrow I will be sharing some more cards with you, but in the meantime you can view all the retiring products in my online shop.
