Welcome! Thanks for joining us today on the Color Fusers Blog Hop. You are probably joining me today from Jo Anne Hewins, where she had another beautiful project! Today's color combination provides contrast, with the rich color of Blackberry Bliss and the softer color of Coastal Cabana, and a little in between.
I have not played with the Follow Your Art Suite nearly enough since it debuted in the Annual catalog this year, so I thought this would be a fun color scheme to use it with. It is a really fun product grouping, and is all about us crafters. I especially love the coordinating Arts & Crafts die set. There are fun little accessories and great coordinating pieces. It also includes an adorable embellishment kit, which includes perfect little heart charms.
The Follow Your Art Designer Paper follows the theme perfectly and couldn't be cuter! There is even paper with hot glue guns on it! Seriously! Check it out!
The stamp to create a fancy ribbon bobbin from the It Starts With Art stamp set worked perfectly to create this filigree frame for my sentiment. Isn't it beautiful?
I used the coordinating Arts & Crafts Dies to cut out watercolor pencils and some cute accessory pieces, like the paper clip ( yes -- a paper paper clip! So cute!) and the pretty stitched lace strip, which I love.
To create this card:
- Cut a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and score at 5 1/2"
- Cut a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock
- Cut a 3 5/8" x 4 7/8" piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock
- Cut a 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" piece of Follow Your Art designer paper
- Cut a 3/4" x 3 1/2" strip of Pretty Peacock, cut banner ends on both sides
I embossed the Bermuda Bay layer with the Eyelet Lace embossing folder before layering it between the Pretty Peacock cardstock and Follow Your Art designer paper. Stamp the colored pencils in Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pretty Peacock, and Blackberry Bliss before die cutting. I tied the pencils together with Blackberry Bliss twine from the Tags & More Accessory Kit (I separated the Blackberry Bliss from the white portion) and included an adorable charm from the Follow Your Art embellishment kit. Die cut a Blackberry Bliss lace strip and a Coastal Cabana paper clip to layer with the sentiment. To create the sentiment piece, stamp one side of the bobbin stamp in Bermuda Bay ink repeatedly around the circle to create a filigree frame, than stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink.
Isn't the Follow Your Art bundle adorable? And it could not be easier to get the whole product suite!
