AWH Colour Creations Showcase - In Colours

In Colours with Quiet Meadows

Hi. Welcome to a new year, well at least the first Art with Heart 2021-2022 Colour Creations Blog Hop. We have worked our way through all the Stampin' Up! colours and are now starting afresh as we continue to focus on each of the Stampin' Up! colours each week, working in alphabetical order. We are also changing the format of the Colour Creations Showcase to a more traditional Blog Hop style, where we move to the next participant on the list rather than follow the list of participants from the Coordinator's blog. I hope you feel comfortable with the change.

This week we are focusing on all 5 of the new In Colours for 2021-2023. Such gorgeous colours. They are Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Fresh Freesia. While we normally focus on one colour, to sync the Blog Hop timetable with the Stampin' Up! schedule, we are working with all 5 of the new In Colours this week.

My last few days have gone a bit haywire with an unscheduled work interview and other happenings, so I will be working up to the blog's go live time. My apologies if you check in and find its not all here. (Must admit, that matches my current frame of mind - ha ha.) Phew - just completed it in time for launch!

This week I created a set of Note Cards with a Note Card Holder. Taking photographs this morning before rushing off to help a friend, I didn't realise until a little while ago when I arrived home after a hectic day that quite a number of the photos taken have not transferred through. No time to check what's happened now. Will re-photograph the missing shots tomorrow

Here is a set of In Colour Note Cards featuring the Quiet Meadows bundle from Stampin' Up. There is a coordinating Note Card Holder, created without cutting or gluing, just scoring and folding. So cute.

I created a Note Card Holder using a piece of 12"x12" Hand Penned Designer Series Paper. There is no cutting and gluing, just scoring, burnishing and folding so you could say it was formed using Origami. My photos of the Note Card Holder have disappeared, so I will not go into a huge discussion here of how it was created, but I refer you to Rachel Tessman's U-Tube channel where late May (uploaded 6 days ago) she created a Note Card Holder and 3 Note-cards using the Bloom Where You Are Planted DSP. Rachel is a Stampin' Up Demonstrator from the USA who has recently reached the heights of 1 million dollars in sales. An amazing achievement.

The Hand Penned DSP was new to the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue and is one of my favourites. It includes In Colours, like Pale Papaya.

While the new In Colours go together well, I decided to create a set of Note Cards using Stampin' Up!'s note cards that come as a set of Note Cards and Envelopes (that's 20 cards and 20 envelopes in a pack). They are the perfect size for the Note Card Holder. I've used the Basic White Note Cards, but they also come in Very Vanilla. I need to say a big thank you to Kathryn Mangelsdorf who "saved my bacon" as when I went to create this project I could only find my stash of Very Vanilla Note Cards and no Basic White. What was I to do? It was Kathryn to the rescue. Thank you so much Kathryn.

I started each note card by cutting a Basic White card front a tad smaller than the note card. Using a Blending Brush each of the In Colours was applied to the centre of the card front and then the splatters stamp from the Quiet Meadows stamp set was stamped over the blended background and then stamped a second time without re-inking (ie stamping off).

Each of the flower and leaf dies from the Meadows dies were used with Basic White card-stock. Butterflies and 5 little labels were also die cut using dies from the same set. Aren't they delightful. The labels were each stamped with one of the In Colours. The sentiment also came from the coordinating Quiet Meadow stamp set.

Each note card had a different flower or leaf adhered over the blended background and one of the two different butterflies was also added, ensuing each note card was unique.

A piece of White twine from the Bakers Twine Essentials Pack was tied around the card front twice ending in a bow with the little tag tied through. The note card was finished with 3 coordinating 2021-2023 In Colour Jewels. These Jewels are just delightful. They twinkle beautifully and always add a special touch.

The card front was then adhered directly to the front of the note card. The flowers from the coordinating stamp set was stamped on the coordinating envelope and inside the card with the matching colour of Classic Stampin' ink.  Sorry there is no photo of the note card inner. These photos were among those that didn't transfer, however, I am sure you get the drift.

Thank you so much for visiting Valley Inspirations with Andrea. I had fun creating this project to share. I love the Note Card Holder and am sure I will be creating more. This pack will be gifted to a hostess who has asked me to hold a class at her home soon. 

As you may know, Stampin' Up's 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue was launched earlier this month. If you are in Australia, don't already have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and would like your own copy of the Annual Catalogue then let me know and I will be delighted to send one to you.

There is more In Colour creativity. Click on the "next" graphic to be taken to the talented Ros Davidson. I am looking forward to checking out Ros's creation as well as everyone else's. There is a list below of everyone who is part of tonight's Colour Creation Blog Hop.

Hope to see you next week when we will be featuring Balmy Blue - a beautiful soft blue.

Stay well, stay safe and be kind to yourself and others.
