Week 20 Colour Creations Blog-Hop - Granny Apple Green


Hi Everyone, and welcome to week 20 of the Colour Creations Blog-Hop from the Art with Heart Team Australia. This week our colour is called Granny Apple Green it is part of the Brights Collection and one of my favourite colours.

I thought I would make a Christmas card and I Love the Penguin Place Bundle (Page 33) in the Aug-Dec 2021 Mini Catalogue. This is called a Triple Easel Card and I love it. I started with a Granny Apple Green Card Base and using some Basic White I make my own DSP using the snow flakes stamp from the bundle and Granny Apple Green Ink. I then used my Blending Brush and more of the same colour to lightly colour the white to a very pale green. I then used the layering circles to cut out the stoppers and the pictures along with the Penguin Place stamp set for my pop up images.

It's so cute and I think it really pops in the Granny Apple Green. I attached the pop up images and stoppers to the card using dimensionals and a touch of Wink of Stella to the Christmas Trees.

I stamped the inside of the card on the left-hand side under the middle panel from the same stamp set. This will leave plenty of room for writing my message at a later date. Keeping this card with only the white and green theme was very easy to do, and I think it is effective. 
All the items used in this project are from the Aug-Dec 2021 Mini Catalogue and the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue. If you would like to purchase any of all of these products and you live in Australia, please give me a Call, PM or Email so that I can help you with your purchase.
