Stampin' Up - Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop Week 1 - Balmy Blue



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 Cathy Proctor will be hosting the blog hop and we will be going through the colours in the range in alphabetical order. This week “Balmy Blue” is up and is a beautiful light subtle blue. It is one of our new colour in the colour revamp.


As it is a new colour I don’t have the Stampin’ Ink Pad as yet but I was very fortunate on out team day recently to get given the reinker for Balmy Blue and I just so happened to order in my preorder a pack of subtle card stock so I had 2 Balmy Blue pieces of card stock. Perfect I was ready to take part in this weeks blog hop.

Because I had the reinker I thought I could heat emboss some white onto crumb cake card stock and then use my blender pen to pick up the ink and colour in the flowers that I had chosen. I did it this way instead of using the aqua painter as I wanted to be reasonably precise as to where the ink was places. The leaves are also with a new colour Call me Clover, it is one of this years new InColours. 



I chose 2 different flowers to see what kind of effect I would get. The bigger cluster is from the Petal Palette stamp set and the single flower is from the Graceful Garden stamp set. The sentiment is from a new stamp set to the catalogue this year Rooted in Nature.

For the greetings on both cards I have used stazon ink on vellum and cut it out using the stitched shaped framelets and then I have backed that with a piece of whisper white cardstock cut out with the same framelet. Plus a little bling with the clear rhinestone basic jewels and then I have adhered this together with mini glue dots under the rhinestones. 

Our very new gorgeous Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon just sets this card off perfectly and then the sentiment is popped up on dimensionals over the top.

Please make sure you hop on over to Cathy’s Blog to get the list of the other ladies from the Art With Team taking part this week.

If you have any questions about how to make this card please don’t hesitate to contact me it is really quick and simple to make.

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

    1. Thanks Tina, it really looks gorgeous on the crumb cake. I normally do it on whisper white but I wanted to change it up for a change and I really like how it looks.
