Stampin' Up! Highland Heather


This week, week 26 in the Colour Creations blog hop we continue our journey  featuring all of the Core Stampin' Up! colours, in alphabetical order. This week's feature colour  Highland Heather, is a member of the Subtles colour group and as the name suggests is a purple colour.

It's been a few weeks since I last participated in the blog hop as I've been busy holidaying in Darwin and celebrating our son's University graduation. 


One of the benefits of being a Stampin' Up Demonstrator is that we have access to upcoming new products before everyone else. This week I have chosen to feature some new upcoming stamps and coordinating dies which will be available to purchase from November 1st, called Framed Florets. The bundle consists of floral and greenery stamps with corresponding dies as well as frame dies and who doesn't love a frame die?

The floral images have been stamped in Black Memento and then coloured using Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends. I have then die cut them using the corresponding dies. Yay no fussy cutting required!

I have used Highland Heather cardstock on top of Thick Basic White cardstock for the base. To break up the base a bit I have stamped some of the leaf images in Highland Heather. The Basic White cardstock has been embossed using the Painted Texture Embossing folder and then die cut using the beautiful oval heart die from the Framed Floret dies. It has then been die cut again using one of the Deckled Rectangle dies. It's a bit hard to see the embossing in the photo above but this close up should show it in more detail.

 The inner oval has been die cut using another of the frame dies from the Framed Floret dies. 

The sentiment is also from the Framed Floret stamp set and has been stamped in Gorgeous Grape to be a bit bolder than Highland Heather. 

Finally I have added some Pastel Pearls and coloured some Iridescent Pearls to the flower centres and the sentiment panel. 

Next in tonight's blog hop is the talented Rachel Woollard. I look forward to seeing her lovely creation.

  1. Oh-so-beautiful, my friend! You have showcased these new products to perfection, and I'll be CASEing your card, if you don't mind. :)
    I love the background stamping on the Highland Heather panel, and the embossing, die-cutting and stamping you've done - all lovely. Are those beautifully coloured flowers stamped in Memento? They're a lovely fine-lined stamp; must have a play. x

    1. You’re absolutely right my dear it is Black Memento. Thanks

  2. Your card is so beautiful! The sentiment is framed so wonderfully, and the colours are gorgeous.

  4. How lovely are those flowers on the oval frame. A beautiful traditional card Theresa.

  5. Beautiful card, Theresa, I love how you used the hearts and the patterned oval dies. Your dry embossing adds a wonderful texture too!

  6. A beautiful card Theresa. I love your stamping on the background and the dry embossing on the white layer. Both add delightful interest and texture. Your colouring of the flowers is lovely. All so beautiful. Xxx
