Week 17 AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Flirty Flamingo

Hello and welcome to our weekly play with colour! Today, the lovely Catherine has got the Art With Heart team girls playing with Flirty Flamingo.

Flirty Flamingo

Here is my card for today, a lovely soft combination of Flirty Flamingo and Smoky Slate.

Flirty Flamingo Country Home watercolor wash card  by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia. 2018 Holiday Catalogue, Christmas.

I did two layers on my watercolour wash, with a slightly darker strength in the second wash which I only did close to the image.  After the wash dried, I also flicked a bit of water to add some more interest. I have used some of the beautiful Frosted Floral Specialty Paper from the holiday catalogue as mu backing DSP (this piece is particularly beautiful!), and one of the Chicken Wire elements which adds some more country feel and texture to the card.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today. There are links to the other Flirty Flamingo colour ideas from the Art with Heart team, over on my lovely team member Catherine Proctor's blog. Catherine is our team member who came up with and is coordinating this project for the team this year. I'm so lucky to have so many great team members who pitch in and run things which everyone can enjoy in our team.

Have a great week, and I will see you back here next week with Fresh Fig!

Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team September Blog Hop - showcasing the 2018 Holiday Catalogue

 

Blog Hop

It's time for our monthly Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Blog Hop. Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring the Holiday Catalogue. We hope our blog hop inspires you to get creative and make some fabulous Christmas creations. If you would like a copy of the Holiday Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

Today I am showcasing a couple of gift packaging options, using decorations from the Holiday Catalogue. These little gift boxes always come in handy at Christmas for gift cards, as well as small gifts for co-workers or friends such as soy melts, tea light candles, handmade soaps, chocolates or other treats. 

My first gift box would be especially good for treats given the image I have used (Macarons maybe?). I love these Kraft Pillow Boxes. They are pre-printed and you get 10 boxes for $8.75. All you need to do is close up the ends and decorate.

To decorate this Kraft Pillow Box, I have used:

  • Mixed Satin ribbon with some Silver Metallic Thread.
  • Image from Sa Santa stamp set, which I coloured with Stampin' Blends.
  • Festive Farmhouse Elements which I have coloured with Champagne Shimmer paint for extra sparkle.

 

My second gift box is a decorated mini pizza box. These are available to purchase in packs of 8 and have a food safe coating. They are also great for mini cards and envelope gifts. I have used the Santa's Workshop Specialty Designer Series paper to decorate this box. I cut the image and the corners from the DSP too, so the only stamping on this one is the greeting on the sign (greeting from Itty Bitty Greeting, cut out with Classic Label punch). There is also a bit of Pool Party spongeing on the background circle.

It's a little bit hard to see, but I have used some of the coordinating Poppy Parade 1/2" Textured Weave ribbon on the sides, and also some of the Tranquil Tide glimmer paper (from the Joyous Noel glimmer paper pack)on the top of the box as the very base layer.

I hope these projects have given you some ideas for some fun and simple gift boxes. Now it's time to head over to the next blog hop participant, the lovely Rebecca Jacavou.

Heart of Christmas Week 6 - Christmas creations brought to you by the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team, Australia

Heart of Christmas HOC picture

Welcome to Week 6 of Heart of Christmas. I have a bright and fun card for you today, that would be easy to make multiples of. The base of my card is the silver foil lined cards and envelopes available in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue (they are also available in gold foil edged). You get 20 cards and envelopes in the pack for just $16.50.

I have used the Making Christmas Bright bundle of photopolymer stamp set and the Bulb Builder Punch for my card. This is such a fun bundle and very versatile too, with several different variations of greeting and decorations. It's also one of the cheapest bundles in the Holiday Catalogue!

The colour combination is nice and bright today!
