Love You, Kangaroo

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 34 – Petal Pink

This is such a pretty, peachy pink tone and I actually quite like it.

So for this card, I first selected one of the sheets from the Subtles 6″x6″ DSP that you can get as part of the joining special at the moment.

I used my snips by opening them up and using one blade to rough up the edges of the patterned paper and fold over the top corner, before gluing it to the Petal Pink card base.

I chose the Kangaroo & Company Bundle next, as I hadn’t inked it up since buying it last year, and it was time to have a play with this cute bundle.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to colour the kangaroo, so I took a piece of Shimmery White cardstock, and dragged the Petal Pink inkpad across it. I watched a Facebook Live recently over @theCraftyCarrotCo where they used this technique. I then stamped the Kangaroo image in Soft Suede ink 3 times, using the Stamparatus to get a nice, deep, rich colour, before die cutting it.

The hearts in the pouch are also stamped twice using the Stamparatus in Petal Pink on Shimmery White cardstock and cut out with the coordinating dies.

I used Stampin’ Seal+ to add the Square Vellum Doilies, then used Dimensionals behind the kangaroo.

The “love’ and ‘you’ are from the Love You More Than dies, cut in Shimmery White cardstock and adhered with Multipurpose Glue.

Last, I added three of the Elegant Faceted Gems, then decorated the inside by stamping the sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays stamp set. I stamped in Petal Pink first using the Stamparatus, then moved the cardstock slightly, and stamped again in Soft Suede ink, twice. Doesn’t it give a fantastic offset stamping shadow effect?!!! I added a strip on the same patterned paper down the side, that I used on the front of the card.

OnStage 2019 in Sydney

Wow, what a wonderful time I had last weekend in Sydney for OnStage, the Annual event for demonstrators!

I flew up on Friday, leaving cold Melbourne (16 degrees) and arriving in Sydney to 30+ degrees. Thankfully I was picked up by a wonderful team member, Cathy and she drove me back to her home north of Manly. She and her hubby needed to head out for a short time, so I was more than comfortable sitting with her gorgeous dog, Superman, on the back deck over looking the pool with a lovely sea breeze.

OnStage2019 Sydney

Saturday we were up and gone by 7am to head into Darling Harbour to the ICC. The event began and here is our view of the stage with 600+ other demo friends.

OnStage2019 Sydney November

Early on in the morning, we received our new Mini catalogue and Sale-a-bration brochure to ogle over. It sure is an amazing catalogue and our first comments were, after picked our jaws up off the floor, “we are in trouble!”.

During the day, after some of the product demonstrations, we get to create 4 x Make N Takes. Here are a couple of them. The first one uses the Peaceful Poppies Suite, absolutely gorgeous 💗

This one is the Parisian Blossoms Suite, I adore the Champagne Rhinestones!
