Welcome to another Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team.
It feels so good to spend some time doing something creative and calming and being able to connect with other people online in these stressful and very uncertain times.
I hope that whoever you are and where ever you are you’re staying safe and feeling okay.
This month the Art With Heart Team are featuring Monochromatic cards, that is cards that only use different shades of the same colour.
I’ve made three cards this week that each feature a different shade of green, and a different stamp set. Can you pick with green is on each card and which stamp sets I’ve used?
Card one is a thank you card that uses Granny Apple Green and the Pop of Petals stamp set. Let’s take a closer look at this card.
I stamped the “thank you so very much” sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Memento black ink that I then die cut using the versatile stitched rectangle dies.
To add a pop of green I coloured in some of the stamped image with my light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend and added some bling with the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.
Card two uses the Rooted in Nature stamp set and the light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. The sentiment was die cut with the largest square and then mounted onto Old Olive card stock die cut with a scolloped die from the using the layering scalloped die.
I decided to add some more texture with a few Old Olive fronds die cut with the bouquet bunch framelits, but I think the card would work just as well without these if you don’t have these dies.
Card three was actually the easiest to make and uses a beautiful set from the January -June 2020 Mini Catalogue that I think many people have overlooked: Birthday Jubilee.
All I had to do was stamp the largest Birthday Jubilee stamp twice before colouring the leaves in with my Pear Pizzaz marker. The sentiment is from the same set, trimmed to size and mounted using Stampin’ dimensionals. I added some bling to the centre of the largest flower using Noble Peacock Rhinestones.
All three cards use Basic Black and Whisper White as their neutral base, but Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand or Gray Granite also work really well in place of Whisper White if you’d like to try your hand at making monochrome cards.

Welcome to the final week of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop.
We have blogged every Stampin Up colour over 55 weeks in our Colour Creations Blog Hop and our final colour is another 2019-21 Stampin’ Up! in colour: Purple Posy
My inspiration for my card today came from my garden and one of my favourite plants, called Geisha girl. It has beautiful foliage all year round, orange berries and purple flowers.
Here’s a photo of my card in front of the plant.
The colour of these flowers gradiates from a deep purple on the outside, through to a pale purple on the inside, just like the stunning new 3/8″ (1 cm) Tricolor Ribbon on my card. The stripes are Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Purple Posy, all on one craft ribbon.
To create my Geisha Girl flower on my card I stamped Purple Posy ink onto Purple Posy card stock using the Pop of Petals stamp set and then punched out the stamped images with my four-petal flower punch.
The flower is made by layering two flowers together and adhering with a glue dot.
Silver and purple are such a classic colour combination so I stamped my silver foil card base with Smokey Slate ink, using other stamps from the Pop of Petals stamp set.
There are no sentiments in the Pop of Petal stamp set so I stamped the “A Little Note” stamp from the Butterfly Gala Stamp set before die cutting it withe the stitched rectangle die.
The gorgeous DSP behind the sentiment is from the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper.

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.
