Welcome to week thirty eight of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop.
This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Polished Pink from the 2021-23 family.
A fabulously fun colour like Polished Pink deserves to be paired with fabulously fun stamp set like Taco Fiesta!
There are plenty of taco/guacamole/chilli related food images and sayings in this stamp set, however I just couldn’t resist using this adorable pinata image, coloured in with Stampin Blends in the colours of the cardstock used for the pinata fringing.
Polished Pink is gorgeous vibrant pink, so I paired it with other vibrant In Colours as well colours from the Brights family. From top to bottom in my card I’ve used Daffodil Delight, Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis, Polished Pink and Sweet Sorbet, with a card base of Basic Black to make these colours pop even more.
The pinata fringing on the card front is super easy to make, either with fringing scissors or using your paper snips.
Pinata Fringing Technique
- My card base measures 14.8 x 10.5cm (half an A4 sheet of cardstock that has been scored and fold in half) and I wanted to use 6 colours, so I used my trimmer to cut 6 different cardstock colours, each at 3 x 10 cm – this allows the layers of fringing to overlap each other.
- Use a pencil to mark 5 lines, each spaced 2.5 cm apart (this gives room for overlap of fringing) measuring up from the bottom of the card and going all the way up to the top.
- Attach one strip of tear & tape along the longer 10 cm edge on one side of each colour of cardstock.
- With the side that has the tear & tape facing up, use Paper Snips or fringing scissors to cut fringes at all the way along the length of the cardstock, cutting up to the bottom of the tear & tape.
- Once all of your colours have all been fringed, remove the backing off the tear & tape and attach the fringing to the card front along your pencil lines, working from the bottom of the card up so you can overlap the fringing as you go.
I’ve die cut the pinata image using a layering circle die and added a scalloped Basic Black layering circle behind it. The pinata is “hanging” from the strip of Polished Pink cardstock by a string of Basic Black Bakers twine.
The “Let’s Party” sentiment is part of a longer sentiment from the Breaking News stamp set. I bought this stamp set for my son’s university graduation, however I’ve used it on so many cards since.
Inside the card I’ve used part of a sentiment from the Taco Fiesta stamp set. To use just one a part of a sentiment simply place the sticky part of a post it note over the words you want covered. Ink up the stamp and then remove the post it note BEFORE stamping the sentiment onto the cardstock.
