Welcome to week 33 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Pacific Point from the Brights family.
Pacific Point is a vibrant bright blue that always reminds me of those iconic traditional Greek houses so I decided to create a little Greek scene using the Welcoming Windows bundle.
I’m trying to step out of my comfort zone when I craft so instead of layering this card neatly, I sewed the top layer to the middle layer of Crumb Cake card stock using the linen thread. I also roughed up the edges of the top stamped layer using my paper smips.
How adorable is this bicycle die! It is from the Tulip Fields Bundle, which includes the Tulip Fields Stamp Set and the Windmill Fields Dies.
The sentiment was also chopped up using my paper snips to give it a messier, less geometric look.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Andrea Sargent– I can’t wait to see what Andrea has made this week!

Welcome to week 34 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!
Our colour this week is from the bright’s family: Pacific Point.
This is such a vibrant, beautiful blue…but I have to admit I rarely use it because Night of Navy is such a favourite of mine. But after using it this week (along with Bermuda Bay, Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White) to make these beautiful butterflies I think it’s a colour I’ll be using a lot more from now on.
If you look closely at the photo above you’ll see the new butterfly punch, watercolour pencils in Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay…
…and sorry (but not really sorry) the stitched rectangle framelits yet again!
For my first card, I stamped in Stazon ink onto watercolour paper, then simply coloured the edges of my butterflies with the Pacific Point watercolour pencil and used the blender pen to blend the blue in, leaving some white space towards the centre of the butterfly.
After punching the butterflies out I stamped the body of the butterfly and attached it with glue dots to whisper white card stock. The antenna was stamped after the butterfly was attached.
For all three cards, I mounted the whisper white card stock onto some Soft Sea Foam card stock before mounting onto a rectangle of Pacific Point and then onto a Memories and More small card that comes with its own envelope.
I find most of the blues and greens usually work really well together.
My other two cards are horizontal, using two of the other butterfly stamps in the Butterfly Gala stamp set. I used both watercolour pencils in Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay, blending again with the blender pan.
I also played around with the positioning of the sentiment and the butterflies for my third card.
I love this stamp set because it is so easy to colour in different ways. You can stamp the colour using the stamps provided, use your markers, your blends, your watercolour pencils, or even lift the ink direct from your ink pad to colour the butterflies in.
And butterflies look incredible in any colour combination, thery are just so beautiful!
