AWH Colour Creations - Blushing Bride

Welcome to Week 5 of our Colour Creations Showcase where members of Claire's Art With Heart Stampin' Up! team are taking a journey through the whole Stampin' Up! colour range in alphabetical order.

Colour 5 is Blushing Bride - which I guess you either love or hate! LOL

I'd be the first to confess it's not a pink I have ever been particularly drawn to as it's not a pure clean pink, it has grey undertones making it look quite dirty next to some of our fresh crisp colours.  And yet last year we had the beautiful Magnolia Lane paper which coordinated beautifully with it. And this year at a push it works well as a tone on tone colour with some of the In Good Taste and Peony Garden Designer Series Paper packs, proving it is quite a versatile colour!

Last week I worked with the Gorgeous Posies Card Kit for our Blackberry Bliss showcase. The card kit also features Blushing Bride and try as I might, I could not step away from it!

A couple of weeks ago, my dear friend Sharon Davern who is also participating in the Colour Creations Showcases posted a Bermuda Bay card demonstrating the Double Open Joy Fold card - there's one I had never heard of before! (Click on the card name to see it).

I loved Sharon's card so much, I straight away wanted to use one of the card fronts in the Gorgeous Posies Kit to do a Blushing Bride version!

Now I want to make a hundred of them! So cute!

I used one card front and one label from the card kit, and teamed it with some extra Gold Foil Card, Blushing Bride card, the Blushing Bride woolly texture paper from In Good Taste DSP pack, some Blushing Bride stamping on Whisper White for the panels to write on and I stamped the front sentiment in Calypso Coral - just because my Blushing Bride ink pad stamps greetings a little too light to read.

Oh my gosh, how good is all that colour coordination?

Once a gain a lovely card Kathryn and so much work again. The DSP from the In Good Taste works so well with it.

Kate Morgan

Lovely, Kathryn, great use of product in this fun fancy fold card. Your stamping on the inside is so pretty!

Christine Blain

I like how you described the DSP as "woolly texture paper"!! That paper goes beautifully with the elements from the Gorgeous Posies kit. Love your card, Kathryn. You may yet be converted to Blushing Bride!

Tina Gillespie

I’m trying very hard to resist that kit, but you’re making it very difficult! Your card is gorgeous, and what a fabulous Fancy Fold!


I love your fancy fold card, Kathryn, and your use of the Gorgeous Posies Kit is superb!

What a great way to showcase the versatility of the card kit Kathryn - and I love the stamping on the inside.

What a lovely card Kathryn, I love this fold and using those beautiful card fronts really are so pretty. I think I will have to give this fold a go for sure.

Kathryn for a colour you're not that fond of you've created such a beautiful card! This is a great card to show how to step up the kits and personalise them - it is so beautiful. Thank you for sharing your Blushing Bride colour inspiration with us xx

Such a pretty card Kathryn. Your choice of pattern from the In Good Taste DSP goes so well with this kit!
