Colour Creations Summer Splash - Week 5

Hello fellow crafters! Welcome to the Colour Creations blog hop where team members of the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! demonstrators showcase a new colour every Wednesday. 

Tonight’s colour is the last of the new In Colours 2024-26 and it is Summer Splash! A lovely fresh and bright blue perfect for some summer fun during Melbourne’s chilly autumn days.

I LOVE Summer Splash paired with another new In Colour Petunia Pop. These two colours are also reflected in the Unbounded Beauty DSP layer adhered to the Summer Splash card base. 

The center panel is a piece of Fluid 100 watercolour paper stamped with VersaMark using an image from the Thoughtful Expressions stamp set and heat embossed with White embossing powder. I then wet the stamped panel with the wide Water Painter brush and applied ink colours Summer Splash, Shy Shamrock and Petunia Pop. The panel was dried using the heat tool.

On the bottom DSP layer a piece of White Diagonal trim was added before adhering the cropped watercoloured panel using dimensionals.

The sentiment from the Country Birdhouse stamp set was stamped with VersaMark onto Summer Splash card stock and heat embossed with White embossing powder. It was die cut using the Perennial Postage die set.

A paper Butterfly accent was sponged with Summer Splash ink using a small Blending Brush and adhered with a glue dot.

The card inner has a Summer Splash DSP base with a Basic White ‘postage’ die cut panel and sentiment stamped using Petunia Pop ink. The floral sprig is the same as the front panel but stamped using Summer Splash ink.

To finish the card I adhered some 2024-26 In Colour Resin Dots.

Hope you enjoy the remaining blog hop where you can find more Summer Splash inspiration from the very talented Ros Davidson.
