Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration showcasing our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
Week 1 – Boho Blue
Today brings us to the start of the new In Colors available in the new Annual catalogue before we continue with the remainder of the 50 Stampin’ Up! colours. I hope you will join us each week for some amazing colour inspiration.
The Countryside Inn Suite was the very first suite to jump into my shopping cart – how stunning are these designer papers?!! They are so much my colours! I have paired Boho Blue with Night of Navy.
A Boho Blue card base with a layer of Night of Navy then a piece of the DSP which was embossed with the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder.
Using the Countryside Corners Bundle, I stamped the image in Boho Blue ink onto white card. Using the coordinating dies, I cut it out and used a slightly bigger die to cut the matt border. Using a Sponge Dauber, ink was applied around the edges of the white card, before gluing it to the matt layer. The Boho Blue Textured Ribbon was cut in half lengthwise so it wasn’t as thick, tied in a bow and added with a glue dot. I finished off adding a few In Color Dots.
My next card is for Mother’s Day coming on 14 May, although it could really be used for any occasion. Who doesn’t love flowers, right?!! The Dainty Delight dies are stunning and I am introducing two new colours to the Subtle range; Bubble Bath and Lemon Lolly. Add these to Boho Blue and Night of Navy and it’s a glorious combination!
I have continued to use the Countryside Corners Bundle to create the card layers. The Night of Navy layer was stamped with Versamark ink, White Emboss Powder added and heat set (initially I had the Navy layer without the white dots, but I added them afterwards, and it was hard not to get the extra powder everywhere). The other two layers are simply stamped tone on tone and a Basic White layer on top.
Then all the fun begins die cutting loads of flowers and gluing them together. The leaves are glued on first, then the blue flowers and the others are added with Mini Dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the Sending Smiles stamp set and some In Color Dots are added last with a white ribbon bow. The inside is decorated in a similar way to carry the theme through, as is the envelope.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you can join me next Wednesday for inspiration using another of our new In Colors, Copper Clay.
