AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Week 3: Basic Gray


Welcome to Week 3 of the Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. This week participating members of the team are creating with Basic Gray.

My card is very basic (excuse the pun) - just gray, white and a touch of blue for a "pop" of colour. I must give thanks to my stampin' buddies Joy and Marlene, who helped me decide which colour to use.  edited - and Ben. Thank you

The card base is actually Thick Whisper White, to give the long tall card enough support, and I used the "normal" Whisper White for stamping on. I also used Basic Gray Cardstock, Basic Gray and Pacific Point ink, the new Biggest Wish Stamp Set, some Metalic Mesh Ribbon and Stampin' Dimensionals.


And of course I couldn't leave the inside of the card blank!

That's it from me. Now it's time to hop on over to our next participant, the very creative Caroline Manwaring!

Happy Stampin'


  1. Pacific Point was a great choice - it looks so good with Basic Gray on your card, Fiona. I love those big, bold, sentiments, too. Great card!

  2. Hey Ben - I love the blue, just sayin'! Hi Fiona, the blue is excellent choice on this very cool and graphic card - love it!

    1. he is just annoyed cause he suggested the blue as well, and I didn't originally give him credit.
      I had to edit my post to thank him :)

  3. Hey Fiona, I love the boldness of your card. It may be basic to you, but from where I am sitting, it certainly stands out. I love the symmetry. Great card xox

  4. Fabulous! I love the symmetry of this card as well. Perfect for this stamp set too.

  5. That mesh gives such a great effect down the panel of your card. Love the blue with the gray and I really like how you stamped the inside, clever!

  6. A great masculine card that works really well with a strong bold sentiment. Love how the sentiment has been stamped on the inside of the card.

  7. Fiona, Pacific Point looks amazing with Basic Gray and I love that mesh ribbon. I love the way you have stamped the inside too.

  8. What a great choice of colour to use with Basic Gray Fiona. you've managed to get a great ink coverage on the stamp as well. It's not always that easy with those bold stamps

  9. Great slimline card Fiona. I love the Pacific Point with the Basic Gray. Great choice.

  10. I love the mesh ribbon you have used. It acts as a great background.
