Colour Creations - Garden Green

Our feature colour this week is Garden Green, in the regals family. The great thing about green, any green, is that it goes with so many colours, including the other shades of green. I'm sure there will be lots of inspiration shared on this blog hop, so make sure you spend the time checking them out. We are all Stampin' Up! demonstrators and members of Art With Heart.

First step was stamping Festive Foliage in Garden Green. It's a background stamp but not as large as some of the others. This gave me a chance to use the Stitched With Whimsy Dies. They leave a wavy stitched impression, but do not cut. 

Heartfelt Wishes is a 'sentiment only' stamp set, which provided this lovely Merry Christmas. I really like the font used in this set.

Merriest Moments has some lovely images and big, bold sentiments if you decide to only get the stamp set. 

HANDY TIP: As we begin our Christmas crafting, I often stamp and die cut multiples to use as embellishments on cards. That way there is always something available to 'dress up' a card.

Next talented creator on the blog hop is the wonderful Christine Blain
