Welcome to week forty eight of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop – only two 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 Soft Sea Foam, one of the core colours in the Subtles family.
The Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and it’s matching Sunflower dies are one of my all time favourite stamps and dies and as they are both retiring soon and on special I thought I’d give them a send off by using the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set in my Soft Sea Foam card this week.
I’m not sure what the name of this technique is, but it’s super easy to do with just about any floral stamp set and your Stampin’ Blends. You simply stamp the images in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto white cardstock and then colour in with your blends.
The space between the images is coloured using the light Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blend but it looks like Pool Party in these photos!
The sunflowers are coloured in Daffodil Delight and so Saffron, with Old Olive for the leaves.
I always make sure to stamp images off the sides of the cardstock – it looks a bit funny if you don’t do this.
Once it was all coloured in I attached a strip of Soft Sea Foam sheer ribbon using Tear’n’Tape and adhered a bow of the ribbon (cut in half) using a glue dot.
I stamped and heat embossed in white a sentiment onto Basic black cardstock, fussy cut it using paper snips, and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A few Matte Black Dots (also on special and retiring soon) were the final touch.
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!

We’ll be back next Wednesday, April 19, with projects showcasing a retiring and much loved In Colour, Soft Succulent.
I hope you can join us then.
