Welcome to week forty five of our Art With Heart 2022-23 Colour Creations blog hop.
This is a weekly blog hop where we showcase the stunning range of Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order over 12 months and this week we are featuring Shaded Spruce from the Regals family.
Do you love indoor plants? Personally, I would love to have a house filled with indoor plants, however my budget, available time and gardening skills keep my indoor plant collection to a minimum.
Luckily, with Stampin’ Up! l can create paper indoor plants that need no watering!
Would you believe, Stampin’ Up! actually have 5 different products with Monstera plants at the moment? Three online exclusive products – Rhino Ready Dies, Tropical Leaf stamp set and the Tropical Leaf punch – and two catalogue products – the Tropical Hideaway stamp and the Way to Grow Stamp set.
I’ve made two cards today that bring together the three stamp sets with Monstera plants as well as the Tropical Leaf punch.
Shaded Spruce is what I would describe as a rich emerald green colour – with these rich deep colours from the Regals family I like to use them stamped off as well as at full strength.
Card one uses the large background stamp set, Tropical Hideaway, coloured in with Shaded Spruce, Evening Evergreen and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends.
The card layers are die cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies, with the “Way to Grow” sentiment from the Way to Grow Stamp set stamped in Shaded Spruce.
Card two uses Shaded Spruce at full strength and stamped off for my Tropical Leaf monstera leaves – some were punched out with the Tropical leaf punch for added dimension on the front of the card.
This is a shadow box card – so easy to make with a few simple folds, but so effective! It folds flat for postage, but it is designed to pop up and stand alone when opened.
This seven second video shows you the inside and how it stands up for display.
Spare monstera leaves frame the shadow box that reveals a garden centre scene created with stamps from the the Way to Grow stamp set and coloured with Stampin’ Blends.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rachel Palmieri – I can’t wait to see what Rachel has made this week!
