Colour Creations - 2023-2024 - Copper Clay

This week, the Art with Heart Team share the second of our brand new In Colors, in our Colour Creations Blog Hop.

Copper Clay is a glowing warm baked cookie brown - much like the gingernuts my grandmother used to make.

This week I have used Copper Clay for the base of my card, and to set the scene of cute ballerinas on stage - a Copper Clay stage in a Copper Clay theatre!


The cute dancers come from the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper, and the dies which cut out the dancers, flowers AND the stage curtains are from the Zany Zoo Dies, all part of the Zoo Crew Suite Collection.


I love the way the Copper Clay stands in and takes the place of the traditional dark red theatre curtains. It is a lovely earthy shade which makes a beautiful background for the Petal Pink, Pumpkin Pie and Pool Party in the other images. 


The next creator in our blog hop is the very talented Rachel Woollard. I can't wait to see what she has made. Click on the "next" image below to go to her blog.

I love how Copper Clay features, yet works so well as a background for the other elements, on your card Kathryn. Such a cute, happy scene, and delightful card!

Catherine Proctor

Oh my goodness, I adore your Copper Clay stage and theatre, Kathryn! Copper Clay works so well with the colours on your animals - this is so darn cute!!!

Tina Gillespie

Such an adorable card! I agree that the stage curtains look great in Copper Clay - it makes me think of old theatres where the red curtains have faded and the history is glorious. Your cute critters are having a wonderful time dancing on stage!

Rachel Woollard

Lovely card Kathryn, the rich Copper Clay curtains look beautiful

Andrea Sargent

Christina Barnes

Ohhhh I clearly haven't spent enough time pouring over the catalogue, I missed the stage curtains in these dies. Such an adorable card, I love the stage you have set.


It's unanimous, we're all loving this cute stage and dancing animals, and that's a yes from me too. Adorable.
