Stampin' Up! - Art With Heart Team Blog Hop June 2019 - In Color Theme

In Color, Floral Essence, Daisy Lance, Perennial Essence DSP, Rhapsody in craft, Art with heart

Tonight, the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring “In Colors” theme. Check out the new 2019 - 2021 In colors and let’s not forget the current 2018 - 2020 In Colors. If you would like a copy of the 2019-2020 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

You would have come to me from the lovely   Rebecca Jacavou  on your blog hop journey, let’s continue our fun.

I don’t know about you, but I just love it when a new annual catalogue comes out and we get to see what the new “In Colours” are! It is so exciting! I have chosen to feature the very new 2019-2021 in colours in the blog hop tonight. Plus one extra!

I have made a set of 5 cards of the same design using the new 2019-2021 In Colors to show you tonight,

I have used the Floral Essence Bundle for my cards tonight. Great to get a stamp set and punch in a bundle for 10% savings!

With each card I have made exactly the same design and used my blender pen to colour in the flower. I have punched out 3 of each flowers and put them together to make a gorgeous full flower and added the In Color Faceted Dots. Just perfect!

I have stamped the leaves from the Floral Essence stamp set in Old olive for each of the cards and punched them out using the leaf punch. This is a fabulous punch to have as it goes with a few stamp sets and plus who wants flowers without some leaves!

With the Pretty Peacock card I would like to bring your attention to the little bit of ribbon that is with the flower on each card. This is a double sided 1 cm reversible ribbon it is Old Olive on one side and Pretty Peacock on the other it has a beautiful sheen and is just gorgeous to look and and so soft. I have used the old olive side facing out.

Ok I know you have noticed that the Purple Posy flower is slightly different. Well that I because the stamp pad and ink has a bit of a quality issue at the moment so once that is all good we can order it again. But while we are waiting there are many Purple Posy products for us to chose from. Stampin’ Bends, ribbon, DSP, card stock, plenty to keep us busy. I have chosen to stamp the flower onto the gorgeous Woven Threads DSP which has all the lovely new In Colors represented in the pack of DSP.

Now there are 2 more In Colors that you need to see up close Seaside Spray and Terracotta Tile

As you can see with each of the cards I have used some of the In Color DSP to decorate the flap of the envelope. It is nice to your envelopes pretty too!

The Floral Essence stamp sent has a beautiful sentiment that comes with it and if you package all 5 of these cards together to give to a friend. You may have noticed that the Sentiment on the front is the word Friend and is cut out using the Stitched Nesting Labels Dies. That stamp comes from the lovely Daisy Lane stamp set.

Now can you guess what In Color from 2018-2020 I have used for my last card?  Of course you can, Blueberry Bushel. I chose this colour because of the gorgeous new Perennial Essence DSP which has Blueberry Bushel as one of its colours. I am in love with this DSP so you have to get some.
