Colour Creations - Pear Pizzazz Week 36


Hello and welcome everyone to the Colour Creations blog hop where members of the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! demonstrators showcase a new colour every Wednesday. Tonight’s colour is Pear Pizzazz, This colour sits in the Subtles colour family, a subtle mid green.

I have made two cards and both using the Day at the Farm DSP that is available FREE as part of a qualifying purchase during Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-bration promotion. There is a coordinating stamp and die bundle in the Mini Catalogue that nicely complements the DSP. I have not purchased the bundle as yet but wanted to show that the patterned paper can be used on it’s own to create some cute cards. And it is definitely ideal for scrapbook pages too with a complete farm scene displaying a barn, windmill, pastures, blue sky and of course farm animals on a page.

In my first card I let the DSP do all the work and cut a 28.5cm x 14cm panel, scored at 9.5cm and 19cm. This was folded and adhered to a 10.5cm x 15cm Pear Pizzazz card base. Now it’s ready to just add sentiments, other embellishments or fussy cut farm animals. How easy is that?

The sentiments have been stamped with Pear Pizzazz ink using two stamp sets; Simply Fabulous and Something Fancy, the latter from the new Mini. I die cut the sentiments using matching dies to the Something Fancy stamp set. I also adhered a scalloped circle die cut behind the front panel to prompt the card receiver to pull and open the card from the left hand side.

My second card is a slimline tri-fold accordion card. The measurements can be found by searching Pinterest. The card base is Pear Pizzazz card stock and I adhered a Day at the Farm DSP layer to each panel. As in my first card I adhered different sentiments and fussy cut images of trees and farm animals. 

Hope you enjoy the remaining blog hop where you can find more Pear Pizzazz inspiration from the next participant, the very talented Di Furniss.

Have a good week!


  1. Fantastic cards, Rosa, using this free SAB papers. I love the first one with the little lamb peeking out, so cute, makes you want to open it and see inside! The next card uses the papers so well too. You have showcased them beautifully, as I wasn't sure about them, but now you have me thinking why didn't I get them.

  2. Rosa your cards are so cute and really showcase how adorable this DSP is, even if you don't have the coordinating On the Farm bundle. I especially love that little lamb peeking out from the side of the card!

  3. I love these cards, Rosa! I love the 'pull' sign and little details.

  4. Wow, two amazing cards that showcase the DSP so perfectly. Your fussy cutting is fabulous.

  5. Two delightful fun fold cards Rosa. You have showcased the Saleabration DSP brilliantly - using it as backgrounds and for fussy cutting to add animal dimension. You have inspired me to get this DSP out and create with it. Thank you. Xxx

  6. Such fun cards, Rosa. As always, they're beautifully made. Love how you have shown off this gorgeous paper.
