Colour Challenge Blog Hop

Dear Crafters,AWHT Logo-001

Welcome to the Art With Heart Team Blog Hop for October. This month we have a colour challenge for you. Have you heard about the GREAT opportunity to earn more as a hostess (or get a greater discount on your Starter Kit by putting your hostess benefits towards the starter kit) between 8th October to 9th November. There’s no greater time to host a party or even a virtual party on Facebook. Contact me to find out more. You will love being part of our awesome Australia wide team. We are all about fun, friendship, inspiration and support.

You have come to my blog from the very talented, Jenny van Dijk.  Blogs are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

For my first project today I am using the Retiform Technique. There are loads of tutorials on YouTube how to create this stylish background. Basically, you start by placing post it notes across the white card and sponging with ink.

#stampinup Everything Eleanor

I used the Everything Eleanor stamp over the top with Blackberry Bliss ink for a bold and striking design.

My next card uses the No Bones About It stamp set, but taking on a feminine twist!

These dinosaur roam through the forest, created using the Woodland embossing folder. I stamped the images directly onto the folder before embossing!

My last project uses the Build a Birthday stamp set.

I love how quick and easy this card was to make and adding some of the gorgeous Dotted Lace Trim as the top layer, certainly gives it a feminine feel. I felt it looked a little plain, so I did a pretty paper piercing border around the edge.

The butterfly with the pearl accent was added, reminding me of my own wedding cake!

  1. Three great cards, Kate! Love the Retiform Technique – will add that one to the list. The dinosaurs are pretty cool too and I love the butterfly on the birthday cake.
