AWH Team - Colour Creations Week 43 - Terracotta Tile


Hello and welcome everyone.

It's Week 43 of the Colour Creations Showcase from the Art With Heart team.
Tonight we are shining the spotlight on Terracotta Tile, one of the retiring 2019-2021 In Colours.


As we work our way through the Stampin' Up! colours alphabetically, we realised that Terracotta Tile would be retired by the time it came up in order - so, we've brought it forward so we can give it a fitting, final farewell.

Here's my card.


I needed a 'thank you' card and realised too late that the Well Written dies have sold out already! But, you know what - it's the colour we focus on in this blog hop isn't it.😉

I've used Terracotta Tile as the background colour and gold foil to compliment it.


I used a piece of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP as one of the matted layers and also for the words. You might just be able to see a strip of gold leafing at the bottom of the card behind the main flower element. I created this by laying down a piece of Tear & Tape and then adding the Gilded Leafing, brushing away the excess.


The daisies were made with the Medium Daisy Punch and the white and vellum leaves were cut out with dies from the Pierced Blooms. I've added interest to the daisy petals by drawing lines with a fine tip embossing tool. The touches of bling come courtesy of the Elegant Faceted Gems and Gilded Gems. They are so pretty!


Here's the inside.


I've used the Subtle 3D embossing folder to double emboss two layers. At the time of publishing this blog post, it was still available - yay! But get in quick if you do want this EF as items are selling out really fast!

There will be a list of the products I've used on my card at the end of this blog post.

Well, that's it from me tonight everyone. Thanks for stopping by. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the team's Terracotta Tile creations.

Our lovely hostess Catherine, will have a list of all tonight's participants over on her blog.

Stay safe and well. See you all again soon.
