Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop - #36 Petal Pink

Colour-creations
Our thirty sixth colour we are focusing on for the colour collections blog hop is petal pink from the subtles collection. I have chosen petal pink, soft suede and pear pizzazz from the color coach to work with today.

I used the colours today to create a soft looking sympathy card. It's often a card I find difficult to make and not one I stockpile and keep many in my stash of ready made cards. I again used my favourite bundle from the Occasions Catalogue, well said bundle (I am getting good milage from this bundle!)

I do like how changing the sentiment on this card can result in making cards for other occasions. I have made three different cards very quickly and with not a lot of extra effort.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate Your Day with Country Floral Embossing Folder Card

I am really enjoying playing with the country floral dynamic textured impressions embossing folder which is a free sale-a-bration product available with orders of $90+. Did you see the first card I shared a few days ago? I am loving the different looks I am managing to get out of the embossing folder. I have come up with 3 so far but I know it won't stop there. 

For today's card I used the technique called coloured dry embossing. You use markers either stampin' write markers or stampin' blends to colour over the raised portions of the embossed paper. Personally, I found it easier to use the stampin' write markers compared to the stampin' blends for this technique as the blends' bleeded further over the embossed portion of the cardstock than I wanted and I could that I had more control with the stampin' write markers.

I added in some small details to finish off the card. These include a small strip of silver glimmer paper under the sentiment along with some silver metallic thread which I placed under the sentiment. The centre of the highland heather flowers have dots of fine tip glue pen for added shine. I also hand sewed some glass seed beads on in the middle of the pool party flowers (because I am crazy like that and I find it oddly soothing) and my favourite basic rhinestone jewels were too large to use!
