Welcome to week 36 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Pool Party from the Subtles family.
Tonight’s cards bring together the free Simply Marbleous SALE-a-bration DSP with a brand new bundle that I am super excited about. The Waves of Inspiration Cling Stamp Set and Waves Dies are an early-release product from the 2022–2023 Annual Catalogue and will be available to purchase from March 1.
My husband and my boys really do live to surf so I know I will get a lot of use from this set! We are lucky enough to live at one of the best surfing beaches in Australia and surfing is such a wonderful activity they enjoy all year round. This Waves of the Ocean collection is definitely one I will keep and use forever.
The cards I’ve made for today use a pared back colour palette of Pool Party with Basic Black and Basic White.
Whenever I use the die inlay technique I always make two cards so as not to waste the negative images from either die cut.
Die Inlay Technique, step by step
Adhere adhesive strip to one side of a 14×7 cm piece of Pool Party card stock and the reverse side of a 14×7 cm piece of Simply Marbleous DSP.
Use one of the large wave dies to cut a wave from the Pool Party card stock – do not throw away any of the negative pieces.
Use the same wave die to cut a wave from the Simply Marbleous DSP, again keeping the negative pieces.
Adhere the wave outline to the card base and then use the negative pieces from the other die cut wave to fill in the wave.
Repeat for the other card, using the cardstock and DSP in reverse.
The Simply Marbleous DSP really does look so realistic for waves, capturing the way light falls across a wave, as well as all the froth!
The Playful Alphabet dies are perfect for creating a custom word or phrase on a card – in this case it’s “Surf’s Up!”
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Kate Morgan– I can’t wait to see what Kate has made this week!

Isolation has given me more time to craft (yay!!) and so I have three more otter cards to share with you using three of the SALE-a-bration products: the Awesome Otters stamp set, the Simply Marbleous Designer Series Paper and the Special Moments stamp set.
Card one – “Picture This” dies
The round “Picture This” die works so well with the Awesome Otters stamp set – each window frames the otters perfectly! The “Hey Boo” sentiment comes from the Special Moments stamp set.
To ensure my stamping lined up with the die cut circles, I used the die cut as a template, drawing inside each circle with my pencil before stamping. Once everything was stamped, I simply rubbed out the pencil circles, coloured the images using my Stampin’ Blends and adhered the top layer of DSP.
Card two – birthday balloon
Card two uses the largest circle die cut from card one to make a fun birthday balloon.
The Stitched Rectangle dies create an inlay effect that frames the birthday boy perfectly!
Card three – “Bouquet of Love” hybrid embossing folder.
Card three uses another great die: the largest heart die from the Bouquet of Love Hybrid Embossing Folder.
I’ll be back with the Art with Heart Colour Creations team at 8pm (AEST) Wednesday night to showcase Night of Navy.
