Welcome to week 30 of our 2021-22 Colour Creations blog hop! Tonight we are showcasing Mossy Meadow, a very dark green from the Neutrals family.
Yesterday the new 2022 January to June Mini Catalogue and the Sale-a-bration catalogue launched and so I decided to share with you two cards made using a gorgeous bundle in the SALE-a-bration catalogue – the Friendly Hello bundle. This bundle is FREE with any Stampin’ Up purchase of $180 or more.
Some images from the stamp set are designed to be stamped directly onto the paper for a unique look you’ll love. I would normally do this in Basic Black but as we are showcasing Mossy Meadow tonight I decided to try it instead and I’m thrilled at how it looks against the Granny Apple Green. You can see in this photo below how the paper looks both before and after it is stamped.
My first card uses the floral Granny Apple Green DSP, stamped in Mossy Meadow with the large double flower stamp and the open leaf stamp.
Behind the layered sentiment I’ve added a strip of the the new White 3/4″ Frayed Ribbon from the January-June Mini Catalogue – this ribbon has a soft, slightly fuzzy feel and it is a great way to add instant texture.
I also stamped the large double flower in Mossy Meadow onto a scrap of Whisper White, colouring it with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends and fussy cutting it into two – one for the front of the card and one for the inside.
My second card uses the “leaf frond branch” stamp and DSP and the “bird on a branch” stamp.
The same Scalloped Contours Dies were used for the sentiment, just positioned in a different way.
Do you have a favourite card? As I’m always a sucker for a bird on a card, there’s not prizes for guessing which one is my favourite!
