AWHT Colour Creations #2 Parakeet Party

Parakeet Party with Perfectly Penciled and Alcohol Blends

Hello. Welcome to Valley Inspirations with Andrea and the Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. Last week we started afresh to work through the Stampin' Up! colours, and commenced with the brand new In Colours for 2022-2024. 


This week’s Blog Hop is focussing on a bright yellowy green called Parakeet Party. As mentioned, Parakeet Party is part of the In Colours Family and is an amazing super bright and happy green. As the name suggests, it is a green that can be found on parakeet feathers. It is a colour that is gorgeous when used with other greens for leaves, etc or with other colours such as Pool Party & Daffodil Delight. I'm still exploring colour combos.


Parakeet Party is produced in Stampin' Up!'s card-stock, both A4 & 12"x12"Classic Stampin' inks (ink pads re-inkers); Stampin' Write Markers; Stampin' Blends, In Colour 2022-2024, Butterfly Kisses and Tea Boutique Designer Series Papers, Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes, In Colour Glimmer Paper, Metallic Woven Ribbon, Bakers Twine, In Colour Decorative Dots, and Fun Flowers Resin Shapes. The card below has used Parakeet Party Stampin' Blends and the half created card is using Classic Stampin' ink (both re-inker and Stamp Pad) and Card-stock plus a range of other non-PP bits and pieces.

I have created 1 1/2 cards to showcase Parakeet Party. Here is the completed card:

CARD 1:

This card shows the happy nature of Parakeet Party through Stampin' Blends coloured leaves.

Sections of one of the designs of the stunning Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper were coloured with Stampin' Blends. When I first looked at the larger floral spray design I was calculating the number of large sprays that could be used for projects. I also looked at the edges and how I could increase project numbers by using part floral sprays. I decided to just use some edge sprays for this card. The Alcohol Blends colours used were Parakeet Party, Daffodil Delight and Fresh Freesia plus some Pool Party - Light and Dark in all colours.

A Basic White card front had some Pool Party Classic Stampin' ink applied with a Blending Brush. The coloured sprays were all fussy cut and the pieces were arranged on the card front. The straight edges were adhered directly along the edges and Mini Dimensionals were used to pop flowers up in the centre. The card front was mounted on to a slightly larger piece of Pool Party card-stock and then to the Basic White card base.

The card front was finished with a fussy-cut sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set that had been White heat embossed on Basic Black card-stock. A bow of Pool Party Sheer Ribbon was tucked under the sentiment and some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels added a little shimmer.

A piece of Basic White card-stock was mounted on to a slightly larger piece of Pool Party card-stock and another edge floral spray was coloured and added to the edge of the card inner.  An uncoloured fussy cut spray of flowers was adhered to the side of a Basic White C6 Envelope to coordinate the envelope with the card.
