Welcome to week forty seven of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop – only three more weeks to go!
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 So Saffron, which will soon be retiring from the Subtles family.
I’ve used the Petal Park bundle and the Sentimental Park bundle for my thanks card – all these products are all carrying over to the new 2023-24 Annual Catalogue, however if you want to save 10% on these bundles, you’ll need to order them before May 1st.
First, I stamped the leaf stamp from Sentimental Park in Soft Sea Foam to create a wreath shape off the right hand side of the card stock.
Next, I stamped the petals from Petal Park in Sahara Sand, coloured them in with light and dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blends and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends for the centre of the flowers.
The “Thanks” sentiment was stamped in Versamark ink onto Sahara Sand cardstock, white heat embossed and die cut using a Sentimental Park die.
Once the sentiment and a double bow of linen thread was attached to the stamped wreath, I punched the flowers out with the Petal Park builder punch and adhered them to the wreath as well.
The centre of the flowers were embellished using the Loose Daisy Embellishments – the green leaves on these embellishments were too strong for the soft colours, so I gently twisted the leaves off with my finger before adhering the embellishments to the centre of the flowers.
It has been super hard to photograph this card with the weather we’ve had in Sydney this week, so I do apologise for the quality of the images in today’s blog.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rachel Palmieri – I can’t wait to see what Rachel has made this week!
