Stampin’ Up! Terracotta Tile – AWH Colour Creations Showcase Week 43



Welcome to another week of colour inspiration with the AWH teams Colour Creations Showcase with a focus on Terracotta Tile a 2019-21 In Colour that will soon be retiring.

My inspiration this week was to use some of the Ice Cream Corner DSP from the January-June mini catalogue. If you are interested in the suite collection it contains, in addition to the DSP, the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set, an Ice cream cone builder punch, Blackberry Bliss striped ribbon and sprinkles for some colourful and fun products to make your cards. Most of these items will carry over to the new 2021-22 Annual catalogue.


I decided to make a side-ways Z-fold card to add some interest this week. For the main card base I have used Petal Pink that measures 29.8 cm x 10.5 cm (scored long side at 7.4 cm and 14.8 cm) and folded along the scored lines to create the Z-fold. The Ice Cream Corner DSP has been mounted onto Terracotta Tile card stock on both the front and inside panels.
 


I really wanted to make a rainbow as my focal point as for some reason it popped into my head and so I have chosen card stock colours that seem to tie in nicely with the DSP: Terracotta Tile, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride and Petal Pink. The rainbow was made from the circle dies in the Stitched Shapes die set and the 'ring' cut out by placing the smaller circle inside the bigger circle for each colour except the last Petal Pink circle that was left whole. Each rainbow layer was then mounted onto an adhesive sheet to secure before mounting the shape onto the front Calypso Coral and DSP panel.


The sentiments on both the front and inside of the card are from the In Bloom stamp set which is found in the January-June mini catalogue but will also carry over to the new 2021-22 Annual catalogue. Such a pretty set and I especially love the coordinating dies called Pierced Blooms. 

The front sentiment has been stamped with Versamark, then Terracotta Tile ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give it a nice shine. The ice cream images have been fussy cut from the DSP and adhered to the front panel and also inside the card. The rainbow panel was then adhered to the Z-fold front panel.
