Stampin' Up - Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop Week 2 - Basic Gray


Daisy Delight, Love You To Pieces, Basic Gray

Tonight, some of the ladies of the Art With Heart Team will be bringing you a blog hop featuring one of the gorgeous colours from the Stampin’ Up range. Each week the lovely CathyProctor will be hosting the blog hop and we will be going through the colours in the range in alphabetical order. This week “Basic Gray” is up.

I have made 2 very simple cards for you tonight and the first I have just simply stamped the Daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set in Basic Gray twice and used the Daisy punch to punch it out. The centre of the flower is stamped with our new InColour Pineapple Punch.

Daisy Delight

To add a little bit of interest to the front of the card I have scored two lines 1cm apart down 2 sides to meet under the daisy and then in between these lines I have added the new gorgeous Leaf Ribbon before popping the daisy up on a dimensional.

The sentiment is from the Daisy Delight stamp set.

The second card highlighting Basic Gray today is a little different. I have used the Thick Whisper White card stock as my card base so it will stand up and then layered the Basic Gray card for my background. 
Love You To Pieces

Using the Swirley Scribbles Thinlit Dies I have cut out a circle in copper foil and then added some more of the gorgeous new Leaf Ribbon. The colour is just beautiful! I have embossed in copper embossing powder From the Heart at the bottom of the card which is from the Petal Palette stamp set.

Now the heart in the middle is from a brand new stamp set and thinlet bundle which I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on when the new catalogue started. The Love you to Pieces Bundle. It has the Love you to Pieces stamp set and the Puzzle Pieces Thinlet dies. I just had to have it. So watch this space for more projects using this bundle.

Love You To Pieces

As you can see I have stamped the heart in Basic Gray which is this weeks highlight colour and then cut it out with the heart puzzle piece. So cute! I then popped the pieces up on mini dimensionals and the whole card front on regular dimensionals to adhere it to the card base. 

Both cards were simple and quick to make so if you would like any help in making these cards or ordering supplies to make them don’t hesitate to  contact me.

Make sure you hop on over to Catherine Proctor’s Blog to see who else is playing along this week from the Art With Heart Team.

If you would like a copy of the new Annual Catalogue or have any questions please contact me.

Thank you for spending a little bit of time with me today.
Have a lovely day, take care
