Colour Creations Week 33 - Pacific Point



Hello and welcome to Week 33 of the Colour Creations blog hop from the Art with Heart Team.

Our spotlight colour tonight is Pacific Point, a member of the Bright's Collection of Stampin' Up! colours.

My card is a CASE of one I found in the Jan-June Mini Catalogue featuring the Eden Dies, pictured below.


And here is my version.


I absolutely love how this card turned out. It was my first try with the new Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative masks, and I highly recommend getting them - they are so much fun!

Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks




The DSP layer is a woodgrain pattern from the Heart & Home 12" x 12" paper pack. Using our blending brushes I have coloured the butterfly directly onto the DSP with colours Balmy Blue, Fresh Freesia and Pacific Point. The blending brushes give such a gorgeous soft colour and look. I've also stamped one of the small leaf stamps from the Eden's Garden stamp set in Soft Sea Foam in a few places around the butterfly.


In this close up pic you can see all the detail in the Eden Dies die cuts, including the rectangular shaped wreath and the smaller foliage pieces which are cut from Pacific Point, Soft Sea Foam and Fresh Freesia. The white heat embossed sentiment is from the Flowing Flowers stamp set and it's stamped onto Pacific Point card stock.


To embellish, I have added a gold twine bow under the sentiment and a mix of basic rhinestones and the new brushed brass butterflies. I'm really pleased with this CASE'd card - our catalogues are such a great source of inspiration.

That's it from me tonight everyone, thanks for stopping by.

You will find a list below of the Stampin' Up! products I used to create my card.

It's time to go see more Pacific Point creations from the team.

Colour Creations Week 32 - Old Olive




Hello everyone, welcome to Week 32 of the Colour Creations blog hop from the Art with Heart Team.

Our spotlight colour tonight is Old Olive - a member of the Regals Collection of Stampin' Up! colours.


On my card I've used Old Olive as an accent colour to Soft Sea Foam and Fresh Freesia.


I needed a thank you card for a new customer and I chose to feature the beautiful images from the Flowing Flowers stamp set from the Jan-June Mini Catalogue. These lovely Distinktive designs have lots of detail and shading and I love the variety of sentiments and font.


I used the Stitched Greenery die that adds stitched leaf detail to the Soft Sea Foam layer and then matted it to a piece of Old Olive. On the Basic White layer I used the Stamparatus and sponge daubers to stamp and colour the flower image. I have embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and die cut with a Stitched So Sweetly die.


  Inside the card I added a strip of Old Olive and some of the detail from the Stitched Greenery die on Soft Sea Foam to echo the front of the card. And this time I inked up the smaller flower image.


The sentiment was heat embossed in white onto Old Olive card stock and fussy cut. I tied a loopy bow after wrapping some linen thread around the basic white layer a few times, and I finished off with Fresh Freesia flower flourishes and basic rhinestones.

Below you will find a list of the Stampin' Up! products I used to create my card.

That's it from me tonight everyone, thanks for stopping by.
