AWH Colour Creations Blog Hop - Week 42: Real Red


This week some members of the Art with Heart Team are creating with Real Red, as part of the Weekly Colour Creations Blog Hop.

The other colours I've used this week are Basic White, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Granny Apple Green and Pumpkin Pie.

The Blushing Bride DSP panel is from the Dainty Flowers DSP which was available in the Sale-a-bration Catalogue that finished yesterday. It's matted with Real Red Cardstock, which is then adhered to a Basic White mat.

I've used the Nested Friends stamp set for this card. I have stamped the branch in Crumb Cake and then coloured it using Crumb Cake and Granny Apple Green Blends. The greeting (from the same stamp set),  is stamped in Real Red. I then used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out the stamped images and a Real Red mat.

I stamped the bird in Black Memento Ink and coloured it using Crumb Cake, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie Blends. The bird is cut out using the coordinating Nested Friends Dies. I also cut out a few leaves in Granny Apple Green.

There is a little bit of bling with the addition of the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels

The inside of the card has been decorated using strips of the DSP and Real Red Cardstock to sort of mimic the front of the card.

  1. Oh, how beautiful! I love the red and pink together, and the little cluster of leaves peeping out from under the gorgeous main panel is lovely.

  2. Such a sweet card Fiona, great use of the white space with the red highlights

  3. The blushing bride panel looks wonderful with the Real Red bird, Fiona. Love your use of white space too.

  4. Such a beautiful red breasted bird that is complemented beautifully by the pink paper you have used Fiona. Theresa

  5. What a beautiful card, Fiona. That little bird is adorable sitting on that branch with the centred DSP panel behind. The leaves are a great addition!

  6. Your card is lovely and so sweet. You've pulled off the red and pink layers beautifully!

  7. Quite a surprise to see Red and pink together but they look really good and show off your bird beautifully.

  8. I love how you've used Real Red on your card, Fiona. The addition of the die-cut leaves is a great touch!

  9. What a lovely card and colour combo, Fiona. I love the Blushing Bride DSP panel and those die cut leaves look great! Lovely colouring of your bird too.
