Garden Green Hello


Welcome to week 18 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations blog hop for 2021. This week's feature colour is Garden Green which is from the Regals colour group. Garden Green is quite a bold green colour and not my favourite of the Stampin' Up! greens.

For me it was a natural idea to finally ink up the Plentiful Plants stamp set and coordinating dies for this week's creation showcase blog hop. Now that I finally have I am wondering why I hadn't done it sooner! It's such a fun bundle to play with and has so many options.


I started with a piece of Garden Green cardstock and stamped the edges with with a couple of the stamps using Garden Green. I then embossed this cardstock using the Bark embossing folder. The photo below gives you a better view of it.



It's actually still a bit hard to see it there too but it adds some depth to the base if you understand what I mean. 

Next I've added a piece of the "brickwork"DSP from the coordinating pack. Then finally I've had some fun putting together the hanging basket using both Garden green and Pear Pizzazz. This is the fun part and allows for so many different options. The pot itself has been stamped in Cinnamon Cider and the hanger for the pot has been die cut in Smokey Slate. 

The sentiment is from the Many Messages bundle and has been die cut using the coordinating die. Another first for me was using this bundle and I really love all the different sentiments.

Finally I've added a small butterfly cut from the Silver foil Specialty paper in the current mini using a die from Nature's Thoughts. Lastly a couple of the Silver Epoxy Essentials and an Elegant Faceted Gem.

Next in tonight's blog hop is the lovely Caroline Manwaring. I look forward to seeing what lovely creation they share with us tonight.
