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.

I read and appreciate them all. 😘

Until next time,
Stay happy & stay crafty! 💗

AWH Colour Creations - Week 29 - Merry Merlot

Hello everyone!
Welcome to tonight's Colour Creations hop with the Art with Heart team.
This is our last colour challenge before Christmas, and members of the team are sharing projects featuring Merry Merlot.

6" x 6" Designer Series Paper - Neutrals Collection

This lovely new colour was added to our Neutrals family this year, and it's the perfect colour for a Christmas card, which is what I have made for my project tonight.

I finally gave in and bought the 'First Frost' bundle. This beautiful set of stamps and framelits from the Holiday catalogue, is carrying over and will be available at least until the 3rd of June 2019, but will be sold separately. If you love this set and want to save 10%, like I did, I recommend you buy the bundle before January 2nd, and I might also just mention that if you love the matching DSP, get that now too, as it is only available while supplies last.

I wanted to make this card simple and elegant and I think I've achieved that. The copper foil goes beautifully with the Merry Merlot, they really compliment each other well. I heat embossed the leaf spray in white embossing powder on the double mat of cardstock and foil. The sentiment and flowers are stamped in Merry Merlot ink and each are cut out with their coordinating framelits. I love the little frame die that is in the framelits set and I backed it with a piece of the copper foil by freehand cutting around the frame leaving a small border of about 1/8". A metallic pearl adds the finishing touch.

I really hope you have enjoyed seeing all of our projects from our Colour Creations hop each week. We'll be back after Christmas, January 8th, to continue sharing our projects featuring all of our wonderful Stampin' Up! colours! I hope you'll join us again.
