AWH Colour Creations - Week 32 - Night of Navy

Hi everyone!

Night of Navy, I LOVE this colour! I love the richness of it, and it just feels luxurious to me.
It's a perfect colour for any occasion card.

Night of Navy 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper - Neutrals Collection

Here is my creation for tonight's colour challenge with the AWH team.

Touches of Texture is a stamp set that I haven't inked up in such a long time, and I'm so glad I got it out for this card, because it has some beautiful images in it. It is an image only stamp set, so for the sentiment, I chose one from Varied Vases.
For the DSP, I added thick and thin lines from my night of navy Stampin' Blend marker, to a piece of the balmy blue Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper. I backed this with a piece of Night of Navy cardstock. I love any colour in gingham, and the best thing about this paper is that one side has large squares and the other has smaller squares. That's a win, win for me! Other colours in the 6" x 6" pack are - Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist, all with Whisper White. - Gorgeous!!!
I'm also having fun using our fantastic new rectangle stitched framelits! I'm sure you'll be seeing lot's of cards and projects showing off these great dies, everywhere.

I stamped one of our envelopes, front and back, to match the card too.

And inside the card, I stamped the dragonfly and added a strip of the leftover DSP.

I brushed some sparkle onto the flower petals and buds with the Wink of Stella pen, added a bow of gorgeous, balmy blue organdy ribbon, from the combo pack in the Sale-a-bration brochure, and a night of navy enamel dot from the Happiness Blooms suite.

AWH Colour Creations - Week 31 - Mossy Meadow

Hi everyone!
Week 31 has the Art With Heart team members sharing Mossy Meadow projects with you all tonight, for our Colour Creations blog hop.

Mossy Meadow 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper - Neutrals Collection

Being such an earthy green, I decided to just add accents of the colour to my project rather than using it as a solid colour, and besides, I had no Mossy Meadow cardstock anyway! - lol.

I've used some products from the gorgeous Needlepoint Nook suite and the lovely Layered Leaves 3D embossing folder. I stamped the leaf spray, behind the stitched square of DSP, and cut this out with the coordinating framelit. I sponged some Mossy Meadow ink onto a piece of thick Whisper White cardstock and die-cut the banner behind the sentiment and the leaves behind the flowers. I really like the mottled look of the colour this way. The sentiment is also stamped in Mossy Meadow and to get the narrow stitched banner, I used one of the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. I placed the die where I wanted it underneath the sentiment and cut, then I reinserted it back into the die, coming down to just above the wording, to get the narrower shape, and cut again. I absolutely love the new dies and I'm so glad we finally have them! They compliment our Stitched Shapes dies of, squares, circles and ovals so well.

I gave the flowers a little bit of dimension by pushing into the centre of them with the blunt end of my paper piercing tool. It just gives them a little lift. I added a pearl from the Share What You Love Artisan pearls.

That's it from me tonight everyone, jump over to Catherine's blog to see her Mossy Meadow creation and the list of other participants in tonight's team hop.

See you next week for projects featuring Night of Navy.

AWH Colour Creations - Week 30 - Mint Macaron

Hi everyone!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year break with your families and friends.

The Art with Heart team are back and ready to start off the new stamping year with tonight's Colour Creations blog hop.
Our featured colour is Mint Macaron.

This is a returning Stampin' Up! colour and has joined the Subtles Family.

Mint Macaron 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper - Subtles Collection

Tonight I'm sharing a gift set that I made some time ago. It was actually for a class project, but I changed my mind and we made something else that day. I already had the box and bag made, so all I needed to make for tonight's hop was the matching note card.

The beautiful paper is one of the patterns from the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper pack and one of the colours in that pack is Mint Macaron.

The bag is based on a design by Linda Parker, a UK demonstrator. It's a really sweet little bag, and I love making different sizes using the basic design of Linda's bag.

This little reinforced square box, would be perfect to hold a lovely piece of jewellery or some small trinket.

The 3" square note card fits nicely inside our Whisper White 3" x 3" envelopes.
The flower stamp is from the Love What You Do stamp set and the sentiments on each of the projects is from Petal Palette.
I added a touch of sparkle to the flower petals with the Wink of Stella glitter brush.
Other embellishments I used are, a bow made from the 5/8" white polka dot tulle ribbon and pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.

This really makes a lovely little gift set.

Thanks for stopping by tonight. It's time to hop over to Catherine's blog to see what she and the other team members have created with Mint Macaron.

See you back here again next Tuesday for some Mossy Meadow projects from the AWH team.
