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.
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.
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.
I would love you to leave a comment by going to the comments tab right at the bottom of this post - I love reading what you think!
Take care, stay safe!
