Welcome to week nine of our Art With Heart 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop!
This week we are showcasing another new core colour, Pecan Pie. It’s a soft mid brown, very similar to the recently retired Soft Suede.
As the Designer Series Paper sale sends this Friday night I’ve used one of the DSPs on sale, the Les Shoppes DSP.
The Les Shoppes 12 x 12 DSP is part of the Les Shoppes Suite Collection, which also includes the Let’s Go Shopping stamp set, the Let’s Go Shopping dies and the Loose silver sequins.
My card mainly uses the Les Shoppes DSP, which is super easy to fussy cut. There are so many cute little shops you can fussy cut out of this DSP, but having worked in publishing all my working life I just couldn’t go past the little book shop!
The Balmy Blue background layer helps give the illusion of depth to the scene and using dimensionals to adhere some of the fussy cut pot plants adds another dimension to the foreground of the scene.
You can mix and match parts of the buildings too. I wanted an awning for the bookshop and so I fussy cut the awning from the boulangerie building and adhered it with dimensionals above the roof of the bookshop building.
The only die cut elements were the lampposts and the garden bench, cut from Pecan Pie card stock, as well as the books sign.
I love all of the tiny details in this DSP – it gives the card maximum visual interest without a lot of stamping and colouring in!
The inside of the card was the perfect place to use some pieces from the edge of the DSP.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Di Furniss – I can’t wait to see what Di has made this week!
