Those Balmy Winter Blues

My favourite colour is blue and there are a lot of new blues in the Stampin' Up! spectrum - as well as greens, purples etc - its a fantastic explosion of colour!!! This Art With Heart blog is a group of demonstrators from all over Australia and we love to get together and create to a specific theme. This is the Colour Creations Blog Hop featuring a different shade each week and this week's star is Balmy Blue.

Something old, something new, nothing borrowed, lots of blue! Blue is my favourite colour and Balmy Blue is a delightful addition to the Stampin' Up! colour range.

 Something old was the Touches of Texture stamp set. The lacy stamp is a favourite of mine, look how it turns this into a pretty, feminine card so easily. I've stamped directly onto Tranquil Textures designer series paper. The flower outline and sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy, but when I came to look for ribbon, the new Blueberry Bushel was all that I had in blue that was current. I do want you to be able to purchase items if you want to CASE my card, but you can substitute your preference.

Enjoy Life is a stamp set designed by million dollar seller Connie Fitzgerald. It is a very diverse stamp set, with some sporty images which will be good for masculine cards, but other occasions also. I have only made a couple of cards so far using Enjoy Life, but that will change very soon.

Here is a list of the others from Art With Heart who took part this week.
