Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
A blog hop, also known as blog hopping, is to move from one blog to another, continuing in a full circle to read all the posts by participants in the hop. At the end of each post will be a link to continue to the next blog!
Week 3 – Basic Gray
Tonight I am using the Hand-Penned Petals Bundle for this card, but I am not using the colours in the Designer Paper that coordinates in the suite. I have created my own colour combination and isn’t it super pretty?!!!
Card 1 – My card base, first layer and the die cut pieces are all Basic Gray card. The layer has those stripes across it and I created that by scoring every 2cm on my Trimmer with the scoring blade!
Once I had them done, I used the Basic Gray inkpad and ran it around the edges to get that depth of colour.
The main image is stamped (Hand-Penned Petals stamp set) in Basic Gray ink and filled in using the other coloured inkpads. The sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink, white emboss powder added and heat set with the Heat Tool. This is fussy cut with Paper Snips and added to the card with dimensionals.
On the inside, I added another stamped image and die cut the top and bottom with that pretty scallop edge die in the same Penned Flowers Dies. To finish off I added some faux resin dots in coordinating colours that I made using a hole punch and Fine Tip Glue (allow to dry overnight on a Silicone Mat before adding to your card with Multipurpose Glue)!
Card 2 – Many of the products on this card are about to retire and are on sale! If you want to get these items, be quick, because once they are gone, they are gone. The Floating & Fluttering Bundle and this gorgeous Love You Always Specialty DSP are both heavily reduced in price.
The Blushing Bride Twine (Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack) has been used to tie a double bow.
