Colour Creations Week 17 - Flirty Flamingo




Hello and welcome to Week 17 of the Colour Creations Blog Hop from the Art with Heart Team.

Our featured colour this week is Flirty Flamingo from the Bright's Collection of Stampin' Up! colours.


I'd describe it as a pretty, coral pink. You can just make out the orange undertones.



It's been ages since I had used the All Dressed Up dies to create this sweet gift bag. It's great for small items including choccies (my favourite), makeup, jewellery, gift cards or to hold a set of 3" square note cards.


I chose Flirty Flamingo card stock for the card bases and this gorgeous pattern from the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper. I think it goes perfectly with the Floral Squares Dies.


I used one of our 3 1/8" square acetate card boxes to hold the note cards and it fits very neatly into the bag.


To decorate the front of the bag I cut away the frame from one of the Floral Squares, snipped off the flower head and added a different flower instead.
The touches of bling are gilded gems and a gold twine bow from the Simply Elegant trim pack.

See below for a list of the Stampin' Up! products I used to create my project.

Heart of Christmas - Week 12



Hello and welcome to Week 12 of the Heart of Christmas from the Art with Heart Team.

I've had my first play with the Peaceful Deer Bundle.


I wonder which of Santa's reindeer this might be.....
Posing here for his profile pic could be Dasher or Dancer, Prancer or Vixen, Comet or Cupid, Donner or Blitzen. One things for certain - it's definitely not Rudolph.


Looking resplendent in his best Sahara Sand coat and sporting the latest in sparkling Early Espresso antlers, it's no wonder Santa was impressed with this handsome fellow.


I've kept the colours neutral to help show off the lovely patterns from the Star Crossed embossing folder. It features on page 59 of the Mini Catalogue. I really like this folder and I think it would work just as well on other occasion cards too, not just Christmas.


It's not really a Christmas card until I've added a touch of the gorgeous Be Dazzling Sale-a-bration Specialty Paper. I hope you have had the chance to see this paper in real life because it's pretty spectacular! With a qualifying order you could choose this paper as your FREE item. Sale-a-bration ends on September 30th.

Colour Creations Week 16 - Early Espresso




Hello and welcome to Week 16 of the Colour Creations Blog Hop from the Art with Heart Team.

This week our spotlight colour is Early Espresso from the Neutrals Collection of Stampin' Up! colours.


This rich, dark chocolate brown was the perfect choice to use on my brothers birthday card.


It just also happened to look perfect with the Nothing's Better Than stamp set and coordinating Love You More Than die set.
And what's more perfect than chocolate on your birthday!


The Early Espresso layer is embossed with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder. It reminds me of the paper layer over the top of a beautiful box of fancy chocolates when you take off the lid. I chose a different coloured card stock for each of the chocolate die cut words. There's Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso - don't they sound yummy!


I just had to add some more tasty morsels inside the card, and a leftover strip of embossed Early Espresso.


That's it from me tonight everyone, thanks for stopping by.
There will be a list of all the products I used to create my card below.

Now it's time to check out the rest of the team's Early Espresso projects. Just click on the 'next blog' button at the end of each blog post to hop around.
