Colour Creations - Sweet Sorbet Week 4

Welcome fellow crafters! Hope you have had a good start to your week as we join the Art With Heart team’s colour challenge for this week. Tonight is the next Stampin’ Up! 2022-24 In Colour and it is Sweet Sorbet - a juicy pink/red.

The stamp sets I have used are Good Feelings from the new 2022-23 Annual Catalogue, Dahlia Days (from the Jan-June mini catalogue) and a returning fave Butterfly Brilliance.

The sentiment was first stamped with Blushing Bride ink and then I used the “rock ‘n’ roll” technique to add Sweet Sorbet ink to the edges.

I have used the new Fabulous Frames die set to die cut the rectangle frame from Sweet Sorbet card stock and adhered the stamped sentiment to this. This was then adhered on an angle using dimensionals to a layer of the In Colours DSP with the lovely floral pattern.

I was looking for an excuse to use the Cloud punch and thought the sentiment paired nicely! So I punched a shape from the Flowering Fields DSP and sponged the edges with Blushing Bride ink using a sponge dauber to add some dimension.

The floral elements were stamped and die cut using the Dahlia Days stamp and die bundle. I have used the same inks here too. I popped some Matte Decorative dots onto the flower centres. 

The butterflies were stamped onto a Vellum layer in Sweet Sorbet ink and die cut with the matching dies. I then tucked the wings behind the frame to secure.

Luckily I managed to finish the blog tonight as we had a power outage and I had to try and find torches and candles using my phones torchlight! But it’s now back on thankfully otherwise it would have been a quiet night 😂

Hope you enjoy the remaining blog hop where you can find more Sweet Sorbet inspiration from the next participant the very talented, Ros Davidson.

Please take care everyone!
