Art With Heart June Blog Hop: In Colour Theme

Art With Heart June Blog Hop: In Colour Theme

Tonight the Art With Heart Team are sharing creative projects featuring in colour theme. Check out the new 2019 – 2021 in colours and let’s not forget the current 2018 – 2020 in colours.

If you would like a copy of the 2019 – 2020 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

Why use just one In Colour when you can use all 10 together on your card. Lined up, side-by-side, they create such a stunning rainbow!

I’m excited to share not one but two cards with you this week.

The first card showcases all 10 In Colours, as well as the Free as a Bird stamp set.

The first step is to cut a 1cm strip of card stock from every In Colour. Line then up in rainbow order and adhere together with strips of tear and tape.

Next stamp your image or sentiment in Versamark, dust with white embossing power and heat emboss. Mount onto black card stock.

The background layer is a piece of Whisper White cardstock which has been stamped with black ink and coloured in with a variety of Blends and markers in the various In Colours. I love creating my own Designer Series Paper for my projects.

Mount the rainbow cardstock onto the middle of your DSP and adhere to a cardbase made from black cardstock.

I wasn’t planning on making a second card but I had leftover rainbow strips so I decided to see what they looked like with a sentiment stamped on top.

This time I used the Colourful Seasons stampset for my sentiment and the home made DSP. I deliberately die cut the cardstock on an angle using a stitiched rectangle die to add visual interest.

The background was stamped with two of the smallest dies in black and In Colours. Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots add texture and interest.

These rainbow colours just make me feel very happy and I hope they also put a smile on the face of whoever I post them to.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 52 Pretty Peacock

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 52 Pretty Peacock

Welcome to week 51 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. We have extended our one year Colour Creations Blog Hop for another 5 weeks to introduce the 2019-21 Stampin’ Up! in colours.

This week’s colour is a new teal coloured greeny blue called Pretty Peacock. Depending on the light and the other colours it is used with it can look either green or blue.

My inspiration this week was this patterned quilt cover I recently purchased from IKEA.

I live in a house full of men (even my dog is male!) so I decided to add a touch of pink to my multipurpose craft room/study/spare bedroom.

In real life, my Pretty Peacock cardstock is very close to the colour of my quilt but in the photos, it looks a lot greener.

I’ve used another gorgeous new in colour – Rococo Rose – to make my card base and then I’ve stamped Tropical Chic stamps in Pretty Peacock ink onto Pretty Peacock cardstock to reflect the watermark background effect on the quilt.

The flowers, bird land other leaves are all stamped using the new Free as a Bird stamp set.

I’ve stamped these images with Basic Black, Shaded Spruce and Pretty Peacock ink and then used watercolour pencils and my blender pens to colour in before fussy cutting my images out.

On the inside, a stamped rectangle of Whisper White provides a space to write a message.

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 51 Rococo Rose

Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 51 Rococo Rose

Welcome to week 51 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. We have extended our one year Colour Creations Blog Hop for another 5 weeks to introduce the 2019-21 Stampin’ Up! in colours.

This week’s colour is a new shade of pink called Rococo Rose. This is the brand new designer series paper for the 2019-21 Stampin’ Up! in colours.

I’ve combined Rococo Rose with Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black and Whisper White.

If you take a close look at my card it looks like I have also used a lighter pink and a lighter green but I have simply stamped off the Rococo Rose and the Pear Pizzazz.

I’ve used the gorgeous Abstract Impressions stamp set – I’m so glad this set carried over to the new catalogue because it is one of those stamp sets that works well with any colour.

There are no punches or dies used on this card so it really is #simplestamping.

I’ve used my black marker pen to hand doodle over the top of my stamped images. This is such a simple technique and I really love the extra detail and dimension this gives to my card.

To finish my card off I mounted the stamped image onto Basic Black before adhering to the Rococo Rose card.

On the inside, a stamped square of Whisper White provides a space to write a message.

Art With Heart May Blog Hop: 2019 – 2020 Catalogue Preview

Art With Heart May Blog Hop: 2019 – 2020 Catalogue Preview

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative products using supplies from the upcoming 2019 – 2020 annual catalogue.

If you would like a copy of the brand new annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

My cards tonight were inspired by the splashback in my powder room. It goes all the way from the basin to the ceiling but here’s just a snippet of these beautiful encaustic tiles.

As soon as I saw the new Verdant Garden stamp set I knew I would use it to make a card inspired by the tiles in my splashback.

Combined with the colour scheme of the Scalloped Linen Ribbon (oh be still my beating heart!!!) it also proved to be an excellent opportunity to introduce you to the new 2019-20 in colours.

First cab off the rank? Seaside Spray.

Seaside Spray is definitely one of my new favourite colours. How good does it look with Crumb Cake? (And yes I have deliberately referenced ScoMo for his incredibly versatile “motherhood and apple pie” statement).

Next, I’d like to introduce you to Terracotta Tile. I think Terracotta tile is going to get on famously with its closest cousin, Cajun Craze.

Rococo Rose is another new favourite, such a soft and gentle pink I just know I’ll be using a lot.

Pretty Peacock is very dark and rich – I can’t wait to team it with Night of Navy!

There is one more lovely 2019-202 in colour called Purple Posy that I haven’t included this week because the ink pad is not orderable yet. If you’re wondering what it looks like it’s a very pale purple, sort of a love child of Highland Heather and Smokey Slate.

Here’s a closer look at the other 4 in colours.

Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented,  Rachel Palmieri.
