Colour Creations - Blushing Bride


This week the Art With Heart creators are showcasing the Stampin' Up! colour, Blushing Bride

Blushing Bride is a warm pink that has been in our collections for many, many years. I love using it with some of the browns in our colour families.

This week I have chosen to use the lovely Cup of Tea Bundle to make some pretty tea cup cards using a favourite colour combination.  These cards were very much inspired by the very talented Gail Ellis of Blue Rose Paper Treasures.

Please be sure to notice and empathise with the extremely frosty landscape where I photographed my cards!

Cup of Tea Stampin' Up cards (1)

I have used lots of sets of dies to cut out foliage pieces to mix and match for these cards. For a complete list, scroll to the bottom of this post. I also complimented the Cup of Tea stamp set with a couple of elegant stamps from Quiet Meadow stamp set.

On the Crumb Cake card I have used heat embossing with White embossing powder to stamp the images on the tea cups. On the Blushing Bride card, I have die-cut the tea cup shapes from Whisper White card and sponged the edges of the solid image with Blushing Bride Ink.

The Crumb Cake card has a stamped background, where as the Blushing Bride card has an embossed background. Both cards have lots of depth thanks to all the shadows created by all the different die-cut foliage.

Wow, what stunners! I can't choose a favourite, they are both so wonderful. The layered foliage looks fantastic, even in the frosty setting!


Oh, these are so pretty, Kathryn. I especially love the first card, because I just love Crumb Cake, and the way you've created/inked the cups. Gorgeous use of foliage die-cuts on both cards, my dear. x

Catherine Proctor

Kathryn, these cards are so very shabby chic and quite delightful! Adding all that lucious die-cut foliage seems like a totally perfect reflection of your fabulous new environs!

Rosa Leyden

Fabulous cards Kathryn and the embossed tea cups look lovely as well as the layering of foliage. I really like your first card with the embossed musical notes with tea cup perched on the edge.

Rachel Woollard

Two beautiful cards Kathryn, lots of dimension and I love the generous number of flower and leaf sprigs on both cards

Ali Patchett

Awesome designs and so love the antique background you have created on the
crumb cake card. Very inspiring to make for sure these designs

Theresa Gerrard

I empathize with you about your frosty surrounds. Having said that you have created a couple of lovely cards Kathryn and I do love the pink and brown combo. Love how the cup in your first card is just overflowing with foliage.

Kate Morgan

Kathryn, what beautifully composed cards. I am rather drawn to the Crumb Cake card, a lovely vintage-style with loads of die cut foliage that I find really hard to create, but love the look of! There is something about this combination of colours that is rather soothing.

Diane Furniss

2 beautiful cards Kathryn, The time for Tea bundle is one of my favourites pairing Blushing Bride with Soft Suede work really well together.

Michele Taylor

Beautiful cards Kathryn. The Blushing Bride works so well with the Crumb Cake and I love all your lovely foliage.
