Art With Heart In Color Blog Hop

Tonight the Art With Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring the 'In Color' theme. Check out the new 2018 - 2020 'In Colors' and let's not forget the current 2017 - 2019 'In Colors.' If you would like a copy of the new 2018 - 2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

I chose to try out the new Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on thick Whisper White and scattered spots of the 5 new colours, a very simple sentiment from Love What You Do, with a touch of  white tulle spotted ribbon behind.

 When new In Colors are released now, I get so excited! Mostly, I like our new offerings but sometimes there's one colour that I'm not comfortable with initially. Sometimes it ends up being a favourite. Funny isn't it? This year is even more exciting with a Color Revamp happening too, along with a slightly different ink pad mold. Two of my favourites returning are Coastal Cabana and Mint Macaron. The new purples look to be nice and fresh and bright too.

 Lovely Lipstick is a beauty, and I splattered some random spots using the ink and a stamp from Timeless Textures. The pens are from Crafting Forever, and I coloured with Stampin' Write Markers in Lemon-Lime Twist, Flirty Flamingo and snuck in some Melon Mambo while I wait to receive my new markers. The pen lines are balloon strings from a couple of different stamp sets,it's never going to matter which you choose. 'Words Are Never Enough' is a super sentiment from Rooted In Nature. It is the perfect phrase for many occasions.

For the last card, I mixed Crafting Forever with Jars Of Love. Those mason jars are so handy, I can't imagine how we would ever do without them. Fortunately, they are staying on for the next 12 months. It's so much fun to mix stamp sets together, don't you think. I'm hoping someone joins my team soon, because this would be an ideal card to welcome someone new to the team. Will it be you?

Now it is time to move on to see another amazing blog by the very talented Catherine Proctor.

If you lose your way, this list should help you to get back on track.
