Smoky Slate – Very Versailles

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 47 – Smoky Slate

Smoky Slate is from the Neutrals collection. This is another colour I don’t use a lot of, and I really did struggle as to what stamp set to choose. As I was looking through my stamp sets, Very Versailles was one that hasn’t seen much love. I actually really like it, but for some reason, I cannot do the vintage style that comes naturally to so many. Challenge time!

Craft with Kate Colour Combination

This card is very simple and not a lot to it. I embossed a piece of Rich Razzleberry card with the Tasteful Textiles 3D embossing folder and glued it to a Basic White Thick card base.

Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, I cut the white panel in my Cut & Emboss Machine.

The script image is stamped in Smoky Slate ink and the leaves in Bermuda Bay ink. The sentiment stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink onto a strip of Smoky Slate card. This was glued to the white card with Multipurpose Glue and then I used my Paper Snips to trim the edges so they were overhanging slightly. The panel was then added to the card base with Dimensionals and a little gold Bumblebee Trinket added with a Glue Dot.

On the inside, I stamped the scripty image again in the bottom corner in Smoky Slate ink.

I love the font of this sentiment and it could be used for so many different occasions; Birthdays, Sympathy, etc and it is not overly feminine or masculine – I love this!

  1. A lovely elegant card Kate. A striking colour combination. I love your use of Smoky Slate for the script and the little bumble bee finishes your card brilliantly. i keep looking at this stamp set – I don’t know why I didn’t get it when it first came out. Your card will make it extra hard to resist for my next order. xxx

  2. Kate, challenge is definitely completed – you should do this style of card more often! Your little bumble bee is the finishing touch and looks so beautiful. Thank you for your Smoky Slate inspiration in the AWH Colour Creations showcase this week!
