Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Week 3 Basic Gray


Welcome to another week of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. This week our feature colour is Basic Gray, one of our colours from the Neutrals collection.


 I have chosen to team it with one of the lovely new In Colours Pale Papaya and also another gray, Gray Granite.

For the background of the card I have used a piece of DSP from the Hand-Penned pack which I have stamped off the Splatter stamp and then embossed the whole piece using the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. The floral sprigs have been die cut using the matching Dies from the Quiet Meadow bundle using cardstock but also some of the new In Colour Shimmer Vellum. Here is a close up for you.



It has a gorgeous glimmer to it. The vellum comes in all of the new In Colours and they all look beautiful. The floral sprig in the background has been stamped using Basic Gray as has the sentiment which is also from the Quiet Meadow stamp set.

As always if you would like to know more about anything Stampin Up!, would like me to pop a brand new catalogue in the mail to you, or would like to order any of the beautiful products then please contact me via the Facebook tab up the top.
