Welcome to a new round of The Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop for the 2022-2023 Stampin' Up! year. With a new Stampin' Up! catalogue comes a new set of In Colours and this year's colours are just beautiful. We are starting this year's round featuring the new In Colours, and this week's colour is the beautiful Orchid Oasis, which is a lovely purple colour.
For my card this week I have teamed Orchid Oasis with Granny Apple Green and White to create a Mother's Day card. Mother's Day here in Australia is this weekend. I have also chosen to use one of the gorgeous new bundles from the new Annual Catalogue, Wisteria Wishes.
It is a bit hard to tell from this photo but my starting point for my card was a piece of the reverse side of one of the pieces from the new Tea Boutique paper pack. I have then topped this with a piece of Basic White cardstock that has been embossed using the Timeworn Type embossing folder. Here is a close up of that. The reason I like it is that gives just a little bit of definition to the white cardstock without being overpowering.
Then on to this I have mounted the flower heads, which look a little bit like Hollyhocks, and the flower stems with the leaves. These have been stamped using Orchid Oasis and Highland Heather for the flowers and Granny Apple Green for the leaves.
The sentiment has been stamped in Orchid Oasis and is from the Celebrating You stamp set. This has then been die cut using one of the dies from the new Stylish Shapes die set. I have also coloured some White Crinkled Seam Binding using the Orchid Oasis Stampin Blends. Finally a few Iridescent Rhinestones for some bling.
I really enjoyed creating this card and having a play with some of the gorgeous new products now available to purchases from the new Annual catalogue. As I lost my dear mother just over a year ago this card is currently winging it's way to my lovely Mother In Law in Queensland.
Next in tonight's blog hop is my dear friend and upline Christine Blain. I am sure as always she will create a beautiful card.
