Colour Creations - Cherry Cobbler

Such a beautiful, much loved colour this week in the Art With Heart - Colour Creations Blog Hop!


Cherry Cobbler truly is one of my most used colours. Namely because it's a go to Christmas colour - and we sure do make a lot of Christmas projects each year! I had to really scratch my head to think about what other current Stampin' Up! products I have that I could use to really show off the beauty of this colour. It didn't take me long to remember the gorgeous Ranunculus stamp set - that flower is perfect!

Ranunculus Romance Stampin' Up cards (1)

There are just a couple of small differences with the two cards I made. On the first one, I stamped the ranunculus with Early Espresso ink, coloured with Blends, then die-cut the beautiful image from Ranunculus Romance stamp set.

I also included a scrap of Sun Prints Designer Series paper as a layer under the label. The background stamping is Gray Granite to go with the Designer Series Paper.

On the second card, I stamped and coloured the image, in the same way, but then rather than die-cutting it, I tore the Very Vanilla card on a slight angle across the bottom and mounted it onto an extra piece of Cherry Cobbler card. The background stamping is Crumb Cake and I added a few pieces of foliage, die-cut in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, which I had sitting on my desk, left over from making Blushing Bride Tea Cup cards a few weeks ago.

These cards are quite formal, but not at all difficult to make, as long as you have a set of foliage dies, and enjoy a bit of colouring in. I have listed all of the products used at the very bottom of this message if you would like to scroll down.

Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla go together so beautifully, and the elegant florals and added die-cuts on your cards are just lovely, Kathryn.

Catherine Proctor

Kathryn, you are spot on! This is the perfect stamp set for this colour and you have certainly done it justice with your gorgeous, layered, shabby chic cards.

Andrea Sargent

Two gorgeous cards Kathryn. A brilliant combination - using Cherry Cobbler to colour the beautiful flowers. Love your background stamping and layering. Delightful. Xxx

Diane Furniss

2 beautiful cards Kathryn, I love your layering and stamped backgrounds.

Theresa Gerrard

Kathryn you have chosen a fabulous stamp set to feature Cherry Cobbler. It's perfect. I particularly love the card on the right. Just beautiful.

Tina Gillespie

Your cards are both so wonderful, but I do love the torn edge on the second card. The rich red of Cherry Cobbler looks amazing on the blooms.

Sharon Davern

Oh your cards are so beautiful! I simply love them! This stamp set is perfect and your colouring of the flower is divine! love the little torn piece on that card too! BEAUTIFUL!


Kathy your cards have a real vintage vibe to them. They are both stunning. It is easy to see that you are very fond of Cherry Cobbler and it works so well with your chosen neutrals.

Kate Morgan

A great choice of stamps for Cherry Cobbler, Kathryn. Those flowers are gorgeous and the vintage style stamping in the background adds lovely soft texture. So pretty!
