AWH Colour Creations - Week 49 - Soft Suede


This week the Art with Heart Team are focusing on the Colour Soft Suede - a brown from the neutrals collection.  A soft creamy brown that can be used in so many ways.

Soft Suede





Today's project is set on the Soft Suede background and features the Climbing Orchid Stamp Set and matching dies that are due to retire next month.  It's a gorgeous set that adds so much dimension to the card.  Super easy to stamp, die cut and assemble and it looks sensational.

The centres of the orchids and stems are stamped in Soft Suede to co-ordinate with the background.  The orchids themselves are stamped with Daffodil Delight and the leaves in Shaded Spruce.  

A quick easy card, assembled on the piece of whisper white and layered on daffodil delight.  The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede and also comes from the Climbing Orchid Stamp Set.

AWH Colour Creations - Week 46 - Smoky Slate


This week the Art With Heart Team are looking at the colour Smoky Slate.  Smoky Slate is one of the neutral colours and is such a versatile colour that it really can go with many combinations.

I have used Smoky Slate predominantly in masculine cards, so I decided to use it for a very feminine card.  I was really happy with the end result.


The colour combination I used actually uses one of our new Incolours - Rococo Rose.  This colour goes so well together with Powder Pink and Smoky Slate.  Such a shame that Powder Pink and Rococo Rose will not be current at the same time.  
The card base is made with Rococo Rose layered with Powder Pink and then layered with the Smoky Slate.  The Smoky Slate is embossed with the Tufted Embossing Folder for that touch of elegance.

A small strip of the "Share What You Love" DSP across the centre helps lift the focal point of the card.  The sentiment, "Thinking of You" and the beautiful bouquet come from the Wonderful Romance Stamp Set.  The bouquet was coloured with Stampin' Blends and die cut with the Wonderful Floral Dies.  These are mounted on a piece of Whisper White, die cut with the Stitched Rectangles, and matted with the Powder Pink.  

A perfect card for Mother's Day!

AWH Colour Creations - Week 45 - Shaded Spruce


This week the Art With Heart Team are featuring the colour Shaded Spruce.  Shaded Spruce is one of our regal colours and is perfect for Christmas cards.  I thought I would add the challenge for myself by creating two cards that had nothing to do with Christmas.


As Mother's Day is coming up fast I decided that I would create a card with this theme.  I also used the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper as it also features Shaded Spruce. As this paper will be retiring June 3rd, now is a good time to be using it up. Only a small amount was used as a background layer - perfect way to used those tiny left over strips.


The colour combination actually came from a different Designer Series Paper (DSP) and that was a sheet from the Garden Impressions DSP.  



From this paper, I used the following colour combination of Shaded Spruce, Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron and Night of Navy:



I embossed the piece of Soft Sea Foam with the "Subtles" Embossing Folder and also added a small strip of Shaded Spruce embossed with the "Climbing Vines" Embossing Folder.  As this folder is on the retiring list, I thought it would be a good time to give it some love.  

The stamp and sentiment comes from the "Just Because" Host stamp set and was coloured using Shaded Spruce and Night of Navy Stampin' Blends.  It was stamped on to a Whisper White piece of cardstock, using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, that had been die cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  The flowers were punched using the "Bitty Blooms" Punch Pack, the leaves are also from this set and were shaped using the piercing tool.  A pearl, coloured with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends added a nice spot of bling.  


My second card uses the reverse side of the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper used in the above card.  I really couldn't go past those cute crocodiles.  As soon as I saw them, I thought of the game "Frogger" from my childhood - oops, showing my age here!  Hence, I added the little froggy to the top of the card looking down.  This stamp comes from the "Animal Outing" Stamp Set which has many very cute stamps.  I am so happy that this set is carrying over.  



The sentiment is from the "A Big Thank You" Stamp Set and was stamped onto a trimmed down punch out from the "Tailored Tag" Punch.  

Again, three little flowers, punched out with the "Bitty Blooms" Punches in So Saffron and Poppy Parade - to match the little birds on the crocodiles, adds a nice touch.  

Thank you for taking the time to look at my projects.  I hope that you will check out the other Shaded Spruce creations from my Art With Heart Team Members.  Click here to go to Catherine's Blog who has all the links to the rest of the team.
