Welcome to week 8 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!
This week we are showcasing one of the regals family: Cajun Craze.
I need to share a little secret with you…Cajun Craze is a colour I had never used before today, and it was a colour I really struggled to embrace. But the process of making my project for this week not only made me enjoy this colour and see its possibilities…it also made me use some products I’d had for quite a while but had been too scared to use!
That’s right, I had been too scared to use embossing paste but let me tell you it is SOOOOOO much fun to play with, super easy to use and to colour (even without re-inkers) … check out the dimension on my Cajun Craze brick wall below!
I think nature is such a wonderful source of inspiration and as soon as I realised Cajun Craze was the colour of terracotta and house bricks the design of this card fell into place.
I was wondering how to tint the embossing paste without a re-inker but it is actually so easy to do by using an ink pad and a silicon sheet. You simply open the inkpad and tap some ink onto the silicon sheet, add some embossing paste and mix it all together with a palette knife.
My little terracotta pot is stamped using the Crafting Forever stamp set and then fussy cut and attached to the brick wall with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I wrapped linen thread around the pot, used a glue dot to hold the knot in place and tied a double bow. The old olive leaves are stamped with the Painted Harvest Stamp Set and then punched out with the leaf punch, and the little flowers and skinny leaves are the gorgeous Tropical Elements embellishments, also attached with glue dots.
Here’s a close up of these gorgeous little embellishments!
The final touch is the Happy Birthday sentiment stamped from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp set…this is my favourite Happy Birthday stamp and I’ve lost track of the number of times I have used it!

Welcome to week 3 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop!
This week we are showcasing one of my favourite colours: Bermuda Bay.
Bermuda Bay is often paired with Pool Party (and they look amazing together) but it also really looks great when used with Lemon Lime Twist. To showcase this colour combination I’ve used something old (the Painted Harvest stamp set) and something new (the Pop of Petals bundle) for my three Bermuda Bay cards.
For the first 2 cards, I used the Painted Harvest stamp set to CASE some cards I’d seen on Pinterest, changing up the colours and the sentiments. This first card is so simple but it really showcases how well Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay go together.
Can you spot the bakers twine in the next card? I used the dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend! to colour Whisper White bakers twine.
However, it’s the final card I’m most excited about…I used the new Pop of Petals bundle and I just love this stamp set and its matching punch!
If you look closely you’ll see another homemade embellishment that’s just so simple to make…I used the dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend! to colour a few rhinestone basic jewels. Here’s a close-up to show you my sparkly Bermuda Bay embellishments.
Look at all the lovely little stamps there are in this stamp set! I also used another great new colour, Call Me Clover, for this card.
Bermuda Bay works with so many different colour combinations and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Art With Heart team have come up with today.
