AWH Colour Creations - Calypso Coral

Welcome again for another Art With Heart Team Colour Creations Showcase. Each week some talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators for Claire Daly's team are show casing a colour out of the Stampin' Up! range. We are working our way through the alphabet and this is week 8, so if you haven't seen our colour showcase before, be sure to hit the home button at the top of the page and scroll down through my blog to see each week's showcase.

Week Eight of Colour Creations Showcase brings us Calypso Coral and I have created a colour suggestion chart for you based on the colours in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Colour Creations Showcase

Calypso Coral is not actually one of the colours in the paper, but it works beautifully with Terracotta Tile and is a great contrasting colour for the greens in the paper.

I am SO excited to show you what I made with Calypso Coral and the Ornate Garden paper. I selected a Christmas stamp set from our August-December Mini Catalogue (starting in a couple of weeks) and I made some NON-Christmas cards that are perfect timing for our miserable Round #2 Stage 3 Wear Your Mask Everywhere Covid19 Lockdown.

Gnome for the Holidays Stampin Up Cards

Aghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! How CUTE are those Gnomes?  I LOVE them!

The stamp set is called Gnome For The Holidays and is an 8 piece Cling Rubber stamp set.

When I stamped the images I used some Washi tape to mask off the particularly Christmas bits, and I added the tiny flower from the Special Someone stamp set as it was a perfect fit for their little hands.

I've used the Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends for most of the colouring on the images - along with Crumb Cake, Pool Party & Old Olive, and Calypso Coral Cardstock for the scallop layer under each image, as well as two of the base cards.

These ones are definitely going out in the mail to cheer up someone stuck at home in miserable wintery Melbourne. 

Most of the products I've used are shown below (except the Gnome stamp set which is not available until August).

If you'd like to see the rest of the Calypso Coral Creations this week, here is the link to Cathy's blog . You will find all of the links to the other artists there.

Awwww, so cute Kathrine. Such a great idea to use the Gnomes now as non-Christmas cards. Your Blends colouring is gorgeous and you are very clever to use a tiny flower for a Gnome's hands. I am sure your cards will bring a smile and brighten the day of those who receive them. xxx

Kate Morgan

Aww, those gnomes are so adorable and they look so cute with the Ornate Garden papers!


Thank you Christine, that's very kind.


Thanks so much Cathy for hosting our creative showcase - it challenges me every week to come up with something new and unique - and it's the first time in 10 years I have blogged every single week!


Don't cry! They are meant to make your smile! xox


Thank you lovely Andrea, I really enjoyed converting them into non-Christmas images xx


Thanks Kate, the papers are very gnome in the garden kind of papers, aren't they?
