Colour Creations Blog Hop Blushing Bride

 Hello and welcome

Tonight I'll be sharing with you Week 6 of Colour Creations Blog Hop with the Art With Heart Team in Australia. 

Each week there will be a Colour Creations blog hop showcasing Stampin' Up! Colors with a selection of members from the Art With Heart Team who will be joining in. I'm looking forward to seeing their beautiful projects using the Stampin' Up! Colors. You'll be able to hop around by clicking on the next link at the end of my blog.

The colour for tonight is Blushing Bride which is part of the Subtles Collection and comes in a number of different mediums such as Ink, Cardstock, DSP etc....I've used Blushing Bride with Early Espresso and Balmy Blue for my handmade card.

I've created a vintage/shabby chic style card to show off Blushing Bride by using Ink, Cardstock, Designer Series Paper and Ink Blending Technique. I love to use layers and textures when it comes to this style of card. 

I was inspired by a couple of paper crafters which I follow on Instagram and I really like how they used the three flower watercolour images and coordinating dies from the Artistically Inked Bundle. Emma from @Coastalcrafter recently used the flower crunching technique, adding layers and giving depth to her card. Sandra from @sandra_helbel_dieburg creates amazing cards and she too used this technique.

Another amazing crafter is Tammy from @Stampspaperscissors an Artisan for Stampin' Up! used the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper with the Artistically Bundle. I love this wood look with this bundle. I've embossed the DSP using a new Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder from the Mini July - August 2021 Stampin' Up! Catalogue. When it comes to vintage cards I like to rough up the edges of the paper with my paper snips.

The beautiful floral Brushing Bride paper is from the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper. This DSP as well as In Good Taste DSP is on sale from 1st July until 2nd August 2021 with 15% discount. There are a total of 9 Designer Series Paper on sale, more details below and on my online store.

For the leaves and butterfly I've used Basic White Cardstock, inked up the Cardstock using Blushing Bride and Balmy Blue Ink with the Blending Brush. Then using the leaf die from Artistic Dies and the butterfly from the Brilliant Wings Dies to die-cut them out.

I've added White Baker's Twine and the greeting stamped in Balmy Blue on a strip of Basic White Cardstock.
