Colour Creations Showcase - Mint Macaron

Hey there! It's Kathryn here, welcoming you back to another Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase!

AWH Colour Creations Blog Header

I'm kind of disappointed that this week is Mint Macaron, as my gorgeous niece's long awaited wedding is next week and one of her wedding colours is Mint Macaron . . .  so I have been making stuff that I CAN'T SHOW YOU!! Aaaghhhh!!

However, I decided that since none of my family ever looks at my blog, I could pop in a little sneak-peek . . . LOL

Forever Blossoms Mint Macaron Double Zig Zag Card Stampin' Up! using Ornate Labels, and Ornate Borders Dies

Whatever you do, don't tell!

I have been putting together this double Zig Zag fold card using Mint Macaron prints from a couple of different packs of Designer Series Paper, and Soft Sea Foam Card stock.

I've used the Mint Macaron & Gold Foil embossed paper from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper and two other Mint Macaron Copper & Gold Foil embossed sheets from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Paper (in the Aug-Dec Mini catalogue).

I've also used some of my favourite ever fluffy vellum - the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper - such a nice luxurious addition to any project.

I've actually not finished the inside yet - it has a secret flap that lifts up so there are two places to write - and I think I need to stamp some more flowers and leaves for that. The stamped images are all from the Forever Blossoms stamp set.

Do you like how nice the Plush Poinsettia vellum looks layered over the top of Mint Macaron cardstock?

Social Stamping - Sunshine!

Social Stamping Sunshine

It's time for another Social Stampers Blog Hop!

When my friend Kelly said this week's theme would be Share Sunshine, I didn't hesitate to join in! The first thing that pops into my head when I think of sharing sunshine is bright bunches of daisies.  I just love seeing gardens full of daisies with their faces turned to the sun. I am going to have a garden full of daisies one day! 

Share Sunshine 1 (1)

I really love that we currently have two Daisy stamp sets and two daisy punches in our Stampin' Up! catalogue!

I have left Delightful Daisy on the shelf this time and selected Daisy Lane to use. And I've used a whole mix of retiring, carrying over and NEW products!

I wonder if you can pick them?

Share Sunshine 1 (2)

For the greetings on my cards I have selected two different ones from the Share Sunshine Product Giveback pdf that Stampin' Up! has produced as a wonderful way to raise money for two charities who are working on the front line of containing and finding a vaccine and cure for Covid19.

100% of the purchase price of the pdf goes to the charities. You can get the pdf here.

Share Sunshine 1 (3)Don't forget to decorate the inside of your projects!!! See that sneaky daisy!

For my second card I have used the same daisies stamped in Night of Navy on Whisper White, but this time I have thrown a little curveball into the mix. Can you pick it?

Share Sunshine

Yes! This time I have used a brand new paper from our demonstrator pre-order for the new catalogue which is coming in June. The gorgeous, delicate Misty Moonlight coloured Designer Series Paper I have used for the front layer on this card is from the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper Stack and is part of the extensive Flowers For Every Season collection.

The fancy fold on this second card is quite easy. I have made dozens of cards with this fold. I haven't included instructions because if you google "Pop & Swing Card" you will find stacks of tutorials and videos.

You can see all the rest of the products I have used by scrolling down toward the bottom of this post. In the meantime, there are LOTS of other bloggers sharing sunshine today and you may find the full list of them at Kelly's post here .
