Colour Creations Showcase - Just Jade




 If you're a 'green' person, then this week is for you. We are celebrating Just Jade, an In Color, for this week at Colour Creations. Cathy Proctor hosts this blog, you can find a list of all the talented Art With Heart team members who participated this week. Just click on Cathy's name.


I have been making up packs of cards, trying to keep to a theme for each set. Often that is easier than you think, by linking the cards using the same DSP on the set. My choice was Forever Greenery, which is 15% off a pack for the rest of the month (that's this Friday!). There are such a variety of greens used in that paper, and isn't green such a restful shade?


The stamp set for all the greetings has been Boho Indigo - such a pretty font. Die cut leaves from Forever Flourishing Dies, which can be bundled with Forever Fern stamp set for a 10% saving on the two, helped out with a 'little something', as did the Forever Gold laser-cut specialty paper leaves. I'm making a real effort to make sure I use these lovely embellishments when I purchase them.
 

This card design is very simple, but so pretty in the Just Jade, and a little Soft Seafoam to co-ordinate.


The second card has three papers (hard to see) but a great way to use strips and pieces up. The floral die is from Ornate Borders, another lovely floral set.


This is my favourite, the 2 papers are top of my faves too, although the pack is an all-round-winner anyway. I guess I like the fake bow tied with gold, all part of the Forever Greenery Suite on pages 108-110 of the Annual catalogue.

Don't forget to pop back to Cathy's blog to see more Just Jade inspiration.
Next week it will be Magenta Madness, another In Color.

Bright Birthday Wishes

What's your choice of birthday treat? I used nearly all the the goodies from Nothing Better Than on this card

The 'marker to rubber' technique came in handy for that impressive sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays. Borders were stamped on the stamparatus using step-stamping. You can check out the Pattern Play stamp on page 102 of the catalogue while Happiest Of Birthdays is on the facing page,103.


The sentiment from Pattern Play seemed a 'good fit' with the front of the treat-filled card front. This is bundled with the Playful Alphabet dies and you may think you don't need the stamp, but when you buy the bundles you save 10%, which means you pay less than $20 for the stamp.


Reminding you that there are only a few days of the designer series paper at 15%, that ends on 31st October.
