Colour Creations Showcase – Mossy Meadow – Basket of Blooms

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 29 – Mossy Meadow

This is our last colour for 2020, but we will continue mid-January 2021 with the remainder of the SU colours, after a much deserved break!

I really struggled coming up with something using Mossy Meadow – I think it is the darkness of it that throws me, but that is the challenge with this showcase. We all have our preferred colours and some we don’t warm to as much, and this is one of mine 😁

When I can’t figure out what to do, I head to the Stampin’ Up! colour coach for ideas and I selected the middle combination: Mossy Meadow – Flirty Flamingo Coastal Cabana

Mossy Meadow

I haven’t created too much with the Basket of Blooms stamp set so I thought that might be a good place to start, seeing as there is foliage for Mossy Meadow! I started by stamping the foliage once, then again without reinking, and instead of using markers to colour it, I used the Blending Brushes to add a softer layer of this dark colour. The Rectangle Stitched dies were used to cut it out. Using the Decorative Mask, I sponged the background and the edges.

Of course the blooms had to be Flirty Flamingo for that lovely pop of colour and I used the coordinating punch to cut them out. They also have Wink of Stella on them and some faceted gems in the centres.

The pot is stamped in Coastal Cabana on white card and coloured with blending brushes
(coming soon) before being fussy cut. I also sponged the ink behind where the pot would sit for some shading. I splattered Wink of Stella across the Masked Mossy Meadow layer before adding the centre panel. It really gives the card that extra sparkle!

Prized Peony for a 50th Wedding Anniversary

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

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Week 14 – Daffodil Delight

This week I have a card for a very special 50th Wedding Anniversary using the Prized Peony bundle.

Here’s how I inked the Peonies: die cut each of the 4 pieces that make up each Peony, two times in Daffodil Delight card. Then I sponged the edges with Daffodil Delight ink (Step 1). Take the Decorative Mask (dot design), lay it over the petals and sponge on some Mango Melody ink (Step 2). The final ink colour is Poppy Parade (Step 3).

Tip: to get the nice sponged colour on the inside petal of each piece, place a piece of scrap card or dsp inside before sponging.

Glue the petals together starting with the smallest and inserting it into the next size petal. Continue until you have them all glued together. The stamen is Daffodil Delight card sponged with Mango Melody ink. The leaves are simply stamped and die cut in Pear Pizzazz. The sentiment is stamped in Mango Melody on Daffodil Delight card and added with a small strip of Adhesive Foam Sheet or you could use dimensionals.

Because this is for a 50th Wedding Anniversary, I die cut the 50 in Gold foil with the Adhesive Foam Sheet behind it for extra height.

Oh and did you wonder how I got those dots on the white card base? I used placed the decorative mask on top of the card and ran it through my cut & emboss machine!

The layers behind the flowers are Daffodil Delight (Stitched Rectangle dies) and Poppy Parade card.
