Welcome to another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations weekly Blog Hop. Today we are featuring Granny Apple Green!!!

I have paired it with Mango Melody and Poppy Parade for this card with the Tropical Chic bundle and coordinating designer paper.

I die cut the leaf image in Granny Apple Green card and placed some vellum behind it to soften the background designer paper pattern. The flowers were inked with Mango Melody and then I used a sponge dauber to add some Poppy Parade around the edges before stamping onto white card.

Look at that gorgeous textured weave ribbon bow, so pretty!

Birthday, Flowers, Kids Cards, Stampin' Up!

Unicorns for a special birthday girl!

Hello Crafters,

Yesterday it was my little girls birthday and she turned 9! She has this fascination like every other 9 year old girl, with unicorns, so check out this card I made especially for her. She loved it! I got loads of inspiration from various Pinterest pages.

The Tropical Chic bundle was perfect for the flowers and I stamped them in the gorgeous bright colours of the inkpads shown in the image above onto Shimmery White card for that added sparkle. The coordinating dies made it super easy to cut them out.

The eyes I cheated and printed off the internet. I have to admit, I did try and failed twice trying to draw them by hand, so I went to the trusty old computer and found these cute whimsical eyelashes! The ears I cut out by hand too as was the Gold Glimmer horn, but these were much easier to do. I added some Wink of Stella to the pink centres of the ears.

The two small hearts were punch from a heart border punch from my retired stock, but it’s so handy for these types of projects. The sentiment is from the Varied Vases stamp set and inked with Powder Pink ink before cutting with the Classic Label punch and trimmed at one end. I added it with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

AWHT Blog Hop featuring Designer Series Paper

Blog Hop DSP.jpg

Dear Crafters,

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring designer series paper. This month, Stampin’ Up! have a special on designer series paper, buy 3, get 1 free! We hope our blog hop inspires you to get crafting with your designer series paper.

If you’re already hopping, then you just came to me from Cathy Proctor. If you’re just joining, great! Use the “next” button at the end of my post to hop all the way around. Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post there is a link to the next one. There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken links.

Now let’s get started!

My first project is a 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page of my eldest daughter when she was only 11 months old. She was already walking and into everything, so we went outside to get some winter sunshine and of course, she went straight for the flowers. So what better paper to use than the Petal Promenade DSP! I’ve paired it up on a base of Fresh Fig with some coloured punch outs of Sahara Sand and Blushing Bride using the Tailored Tag punch. I also added the cat punch and some of the Tea Room copper metallic edged ribbon, tied in a bow. The sentiment is from the Accented Blooms stamp set and the metal rose is from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

My second project is a fancy fold card using the Tropical Escape DSP which coordinates with the Tropical Chic Bundle; Tropical Chic stamp set and Tropical Thinlits dies. It can be found on pages 120-121 of the annual catalogue.

The colours I have used are: Shaded Spruce, Blushing Bride and Soft Sea Foam.

The layering squares framelits added in the diamond formation, adds a new dimension to this fold. As you can see below, the frame is adhered to the left panel of the card and the centre piece is adhered to the right panel and slides underneath to close.
