Welcome to week five of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop! We are showcasing each of the 5 new In Colours for the first 5 weeks before we then feature our core colours in alphabetical order.
Our fifth new In Colour is Tahitian Tide, a turquoise colour that has been missing from the Stampin’ Up! colour range. Here’s what Tahitian Tide looks like in comparison to the other current Stampin’ Up! blue, aqua and teal colours.
I’ve paired Tahitian Tide with my favourite neutral, Crumb Cake, for my 3D “Just a note” card. This card features lots of exciting new products, including the Bottled Happiness punch bundle, the Vintage bottle shaker domes, Deckled Rectangle Dies and 2022-2024 In Colour Glimmer Paper.
After I stamped the flowers I realised they were stamped on an angle that wouldn’t allow enough room for me to punch out the bottle shape underneath, so I punched my bottle out on an angle too. I often arrange flowers like this so I think it looks quite realistic!
I also used the Vintage bottle punch to punch out a bottle from the Tahitian Tide glimmer paper to look like the sparkle of water in the bottle. As the glimmer paper is an ombre paper, I chose the lighter section of the paper for the water. The glimmer bottle shape was popped inside a Vintage bottle shaker dome.
I added a tiny touch of sparkle to the centre of my flowers using a long die of circles from the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies to cut tiny circles from the glimmer paper. I have now mislaid this die after just one use! I do hope it turns up soon.
The “Just a Note” sentiment has the most gorgeous font. It comes from a new sentiment stamp set called Go-To Greetings Stamp Set, designed by Sandi Hartka, one of the Million Dollar achievers.
This versatile sentiment set includes three different sizes and fonts of your most stamped greetings — Thinking of You, Just a Note, Thank You, and Happy Birthday – as well as a small Hello. I already know I’m going to use this must-have set so much!
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rachel Palmieri – I can’t wait to see what has made this week!
