Stampin' Up! Week 49 Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop Soft Suede

Hello and welcome back to my blog with the lovely ladies from Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop.

Today is week 49 and we are playing along with Soft Suede which is one of the Neutrals Collection Colours.

Have you seen the gorgeous Everything is Rosy Product Medley? In this Medley box you get 6 x 6 DSP, two spools of ribbon, Embellishments, Shimmer Paint and of course Stamps and Dies.  I wanted to use the Everything Is Rosy Stamp Set and Dies which is available while supplies last for the month of May 2019. 

I’ve made a gift set which coordinates with one another. The colour I’ve used with Soft Suede is the new In Color for 2019-2020 Rococo Rose which can be purchased from the 4th June 2019. 

To create the flowers and leaves I have stamped the image up to three times without reinking the stamp. This gives you different shading of the image, but only using the same colour for the flowers and for the leaves. I lightly inked up a Sponge Dauber and sponged the centre of two the bigger flowers in Rococo Rose. 

For the background I’ve used Water Color Paper which will be retiring while supplies last until the 3rd June 2019. With my Aqua Painter and Rococo Rose I’ve lightly brushed ink to give it a subtle colour onto the Watercolor Paper. I also ripped the edges on all four sides of the paper giving it a vintage look. To match the Watercolor Paper, I also did this with the Soft Suede Cardstock too.

To finish the card off I’ve used new Scalloped Linen Ribbon in Rococo Rose and tied a bow in Linen Thread.

To make the matching gift box, I’ve used the Kraft Pillow Box which is a similar colour to Soft Suede. The label I’ve used is from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies and I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede. I just love theses labels they come in different sizes to suit your projects.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my latest blog and the gift set that I’ve created. Please visit Catherine’s blog where you’ll find the links to the other participants.
