Hi everyone welcome to Week 3 of the Art With Heart team blog hop where we go through the Stampin’ Up! ink colours in alphabetical order for 2021-22.
Basic Gray is this week’s colour from the Neutrals colour family. There are three grays and this is the darkest shade.
My card for this week uses the You’re a Peach DSP which I love and thought there are shades of a gray in there as well as the Calypso Coral and Pale Papaya would complement nicely with the gray.
I also wanted to showcase the new Basic Borders die set and have used these on the DSP. The card stock base is Basic Gray and has been embossed with the Painted Textures embossing folder.
The sentiment is from Sweet As A Peach stamp set which has some cute greetings and sayings and I really like this font too. It had been heat embossed with white powder on Basic Gray cards stock.
The sentiment along with more of the same DSP was cut using the Tailor Made Tags another very versatile set that I can see being used a lot. To finish off I have used White twine to wrap around the card and tie the tags to the front.
I have also made matching gift tags and here the sentiment has been stamped in Old Olive ink. The ribbon is the Open Weave in the new In Colour Pale Papaya.
To showcase another border die I made a second card that uses the Simply Elegant DSP. This paper is very rich and elegant with gold, silver and copper patterned paper but also Very Vanilla and Basic Gray as well which has been used in this card.
The card stock base is Very Vanilla layered with the DSP and Soft Succulent card stock where one end had been cut with a curved die from the Basic Borders die set.
The sentiment from the Biggest Wish stamp set is stamped in Soft Succulent ink. I have added some Soft Succulent In Colour Jewels for some bling elements. And finally some Open Weave ribbon too.
