Stampin' Up! Week 55 Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop Purple Posy

Hello and welcome back to my blog with the lovely ladies from Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. This will be our last colour hop to showcase. 

Today is week 55 and we are playing along with one of the new In-Colours called Purple Posy for 2019-2021.

This new colour is available to purchase in Stampin’ Blends, Cardstock, Ribbon, DSP and much more. I’ve created a card for this week using the new In-colour.

The idea that I had for this card is nothing like what I had pictured in my head. I think after last weeks big creative week with all those cards that I made, I just went blank and nothing was coming to me. Has this every happen to you?

Any way here’s my card, so I went back to using the Free As A Bird Bundle which I always love to use. I stamped the image on Whisper White Cardstock and coloured in using my Stampin’ Blends: Purple Posy, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow and Old Olive. I fussy cut the images out and I leave a white line around the image.

I wanted the birds to stand out from the card so I used Basic Black Cardstock, Stitched Nested Labels Dies and Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder.

I recently received the Bird Ballad Trinkets as a gift from Claire Daly and I’ve been wanting to use them on a card. Don’t they just go so nicely with the Basic Black Cardstock and Linen Thread? 

To finish off the card I layered the layers with Stampin’ Dimensionals and I heat embossed with White Embossing Powder on Basic Black Cardstock for the sentiment.

Please visit Catherine’s blog where you’ll find the links to the other participants.

Thank you for visiting my latest blog and I hope you've enjoyed my card using Purple Posy.

Happy crafting
