I've taken a break for a few minutes from making Christmas cards (I'm determined to be organised this year .... despite making the same promise to myself every year around this time!!).  Today's post is dedicated to a Stampin' Up! colour that is rather polarising.  Cameo Coral - seems you either love it, or you hate it.  Me, I love it.  It's a rich, bright colour, and I will be sad when it retires at the end of August.

I have paired Cameo Coral with Chocolate Chip, and broken up the colour with some Whisper White.  Here's the busy, flowery card that resulted:

...and a close-up of the Tiny Tags (just 'cos they're cute!):

Stamps: Friends 24-7, Boho Backgrounds, Tiny Tags
Card: Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: Whisper White craft stampin' pad, Cameo Coral and Chocolate Chip stampin' pads
Other: Chocolate Chip and Whisper White taffeta ribbon, Sponge Dauber, Medium Jewelry Tag Punch

Do you like my new watermark?  The wonderful Karen Giron came to my rescue, when it dawned on me that my existing watermarks have my old blog address on them (I'm switched on, I tell ya!).  I have a few gorgeous new watermarks that I'll be rolling out as I get some more cards uploaded.  I'm going away for a stamping weekend with friends this weekend, so should have some projects to share after that.

Also, the next Art With Heart team blog hop is coming up on the first Saturday of August - that'd be the 7th, a VERY special day (I'll tell you why, then)!  I, and some of the other demonstrators in my wider Stampin' Up! team,  look forward to sharing with you then, a few projects designed for/around the men in our lives.


  1. I love the look of your new blog. It's funny I was thinking of getting a new watermark this week. Stamping all weekend, can I come..... Have fun and I love the card. Some weeks I love Cameo Coral and some weeks don't but I do that with most things.


  2. oh now you had me wondering ... why the 7th - then I found it - phew just in time .... you thought you might get away with it but the eagle eyed Nikki is on your case LOL

    Love N

  3. Love the new look blog ... I see you really do like Cameo Coral judging by the colour of your blog ;)
    Gorgeous card too! Have a great weekend away.

  4. Sorry Christine, but I have to admit that I'm at the other pole - lol - Cameo Coral's just not a fave!
    Love the background "DSP" you have created with the Boho Blossoms stamp & your double ribbon & those little tags are so cute! :)
    The watermark looks great too!

  5. I'll miss Cameo Coral too Christine. The bow and tags ARE really cute!

  6. I am a fan of cc, have always loved it, especially with choc chip or close to cocoa. I even did my friends wedding invo's with it and going gray! Love your card too!

  7. I love this card and colour combo.
