Week 23 Colour Creations - Blog-Hop Just Jade


Hello Everyone and welcome to week 23 of the Colour Creations Blog-Hop. This week we have Just Jade for you and I know that there will be plenty of lovely projects to get you inspired. Just Jade is one of the 2020-2022 Incolors, so this will be finishing up at the end of the current Annual Catalogue period. What a shame as I really like it. Being in the green range of colours and green being my favourite colour I'm a bit partial to it and find green very easy to work with.

So this is my Card..... I started with a Just Jade card base and added a Basic White layer. I then took another Basic white layer and using the Artistically Inked Stamp set and my Just Jade ink pad I stamped my layer as follows. I started by stamping off twice to get the lightest shade, stamping randomly over the layer and then I inked up again and stamped off once for the next shade. I then finished off by stamping at full strength. I love the way this turned out. I have Frances McFaul to thank for showing me this technique and I really love it. I then added some leave from the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle from the Mini Catalogue. They are in Shaded Spruce, Just Jade and Gold Foil. I finished off the front with a Happy Birthday and small bow.

As I started off with a larger piece of card for my stamping on the front I cut this and added it to the inside of my card. I also stamped some leaves and sentiment all in Just Jade. For a Monochromatic card I think these tones work so will together and I'm very happy with how it turned out. I think I might try the same technique with an array of colours and see what it looks like.

All the items used in this weeks project can be found in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue and the Aug-Dec 2021 Mini Catalogue. If you would like to know more about this technique or would like to purchase any or all of the products used in this projects please give me a call, email or PM so that I can help you.

  1. This is such a great effect, Di - love your monochromatic colour scheme!

  3. Di that multi stamped background looks fabulous and works well with the leaves.
