Welcome to another Creative Showcase with the Art With Heart Team.
It feels so good to spend some time doing something creative and calming and being able to connect with other people online in these stressful and very uncertain times.
I hope that whoever you are and where ever you are you’re staying safe and feeling okay.
This month the Art With Heart Team are featuring Monochromatic cards, that is cards that only use different shades of the same colour.
I’ve made three cards this week that each feature a different shade of green, and a different stamp set. Can you pick with green is on each card and which stamp sets I’ve used?
Card one is a thank you card that uses Granny Apple Green and the Pop of Petals stamp set. Let’s take a closer look at this card.
I stamped the “thank you so very much” sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Memento black ink that I then die cut using the versatile stitched rectangle dies.
To add a pop of green I coloured in some of the stamped image with my light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend and added some bling with the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.
Card two uses the Rooted in Nature stamp set and the light Old Olive Stampin’ Blend. The sentiment was die cut with the largest square and then mounted onto Old Olive card stock die cut with a scolloped die from the using the layering scalloped die.
I decided to add some more texture with a few Old Olive fronds die cut with the bouquet bunch framelits, but I think the card would work just as well without these if you don’t have these dies.
Card three was actually the easiest to make and uses a beautiful set from the January -June 2020 Mini Catalogue that I think many people have overlooked: Birthday Jubilee.
All I had to do was stamp the largest Birthday Jubilee stamp twice before colouring the leaves in with my Pear Pizzaz marker. The sentiment is from the same set, trimmed to size and mounted using Stampin’ dimensionals. I added some bling to the centre of the largest flower using Noble Peacock Rhinestones.
All three cards use Basic Black and Whisper White as their neutral base, but Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand or Gray Granite also work really well in place of Whisper White if you’d like to try your hand at making monochrome cards.
