CCBH Night of Navy - Week 31

Hello fellow stampers! Welcome to this weeks Colour Creations blog hop for the Art With Heart team where our feature colour is Night of Navy. This colour I feel needs no introduction 😉!

The stamp set used is from the newly released January - June mini catalogue and it is called Lucky You. It has a number of sentiments on an inky background which can be used on its own as I have done or you could combine it with the Abstract Beauty Suite too.

The sentiment for each card has been stamped with Night of Navy ink onto Basic White and Petal Pink and then die cut using a circle die from the Layering Circles die set.

The first card has a Basic White mat embossed using the Gingham EF from the mini and adhered to Night of Navy card stock base.

The centre Paper lattice is leftover from a recent ‘Pineapple’ card project where I used the outside to create a frame and now using the inner panel in this card. As the panel was a Kraft colour to tie in with our feature colour I gently used a Blending brush and Night of Navy ink and blended ink onto the paper lattice.

I placed the lattice onto a piece of Basic White card stock and then used as a mask by blending on top without moving to create the pattern underneath to use on my second card. The lattice was adhered to the embossed layer with TomBow glue.

Now to put together the sentiment layer which is made up of die cut Layering circles in varying sizes of Gold Foil and Magenta Madness card stock. Before adhering the layers with dimensionals to the card I have adhered some Simply Elegant gold trim to the back.

The little hearts were stamped from the same set as the sentiment in Magenta Madness ink, fussy cut and glued down. Additional Gilded Gems finished off the card.

The inside sentiment stamped in Night of Navy ink is from the new Sale-A-Bration freebie stamp and DSP bundle Friendly Hello.

In my second card I have used Petal Pink card base and added a layer from Sweet Symmetry DSP. Next the blended masked lattice was first adhered to Night of Navy card stock and then adhered with dimensionals to the DSP layer.

The sentiment circle layers have been put together in the same way as previously using Basic White and Night of Navy card stock and adhered with dimensionals.

The remaining die cut elements are from Forever Flourishing and Artistic die sets in Night of Navy, Basic White and Petal Pink card stock.

Hope you enjoy the remaining blog hop where you can find more inspiration from the next participant, the very talented Christine Blain.

  1. Rosa, your blended paper lattice looks great on the first card and I love how you've used the mask for the other card. Snap on the DSP!

  2. Gosh, such beautiful cards! I love the colour combination on your first card, and that you custom-coloured the lattice. The Magenta Madness hearts are gorgeous touches. The DSP on your second card is a beautiful base for those pretty die-cut elements, that you have composed so nicely, Rosa.

  3. I love how you created two cards using the pretty lattice. It looks great on your first card, but then used as a mask with the blending is oh so pretty, especially with all those gorgeous layers. Talk about getting your money worth out of that lattice piece, brilliant!!

  4. Both of your cards are stunning, Rosa. I love your colour choices especially the second card using Petal Pink looks good against Night of Navy,

  5. Such beautiful cards Rosa and using the lattice for the mask is a great idea oh and snap on the use of the Gingham folder

  6. These 2-for-one cards are great Rosa, love them both and particularly like your waste-not attitude!
