AWH Colour Creations - Week 46 - Smoky Slate

Hi everyone!
Welcome to this weeks Colour Creations blog hop with the Art with Heart team. Here we are at Week 46 and our featured colour tonight is Smoky Slate.

I love Smoky Slate. It's a lovely, silvery grey with almost a sheen to it.

Smoky Slate 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper - Neutrals Collection

I've gone for a very quick and easy card for tonight's hop.

To a Whisper White cardbase, I added a panel of the Smoky Slate cardstock that I die-cut the centre from with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I was going to add my Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack panel straight onto the white background, but then decided to replace the centre of the rectangle and pop up the focal image on dimensionals. I glued the panel onto some silver foil first.
The only other addition to the front of the card were the three pearls.
And there you go - quick, simple and easy.

Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack

Our Memories & More card packs are ideal if you're in need of a quick make card. Choose a design that has a sentiment and your work is almost done.

*Note: If you were thinking of getting this pack, it is on Low Inventory so get in quick!

For the inside of the card, I chose one of the larger cards from the pack and simply added the white writing panel to echo the front of the card.
I stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate and it comes from the Well Said stamp set in the Occasions Catalogue.

Well that's it from me tonight, hop over to Catherine's blog to see all of the other Smoky Slate creations from the team.

Thanks for stopping by. 
After tonight, we have just 4 colours left in our Colour Creations blog hop! I hope you'll check in each week to see what the team creates with the remaining colours.
See you all soon!

  1. Caroline I love the elegant simplicity of your card...just stunning. Thank you so much for hopping along x

  2. Beautiful card Caroline. Spent a bit of time trying to work out how you got the blue blob so perfectly under those flowers (masking) and then I read that it was the memories & more cards! Love the inside detail.

  3. How gorgeous Caroline, I love the way you've used the M&M card, so very clever. I love the colours too and the pearls finish it off perfectly.

  4. Great card Caroline, I love the way you used the layering rectangles and then put them back together again, what a novel idea.
