Gray Granite

In week 21, Colour Creations are showcasing Gray Granite. Another wonderful neutral, in warmer grey tones. There are bound to be some inspiring projects shared in this week's blog hop.The participants in Colour Creations are all Stampin' Up! Australian demonstrators and members of Art With Heart.

Gray Granite was my card base choice, layered with another piece of card textured with Timeworn Type Embossing Folder. This is from the Harvest Meadow Suite in the mini Catalogue (P54-56)ending January 3rd.

The bricks from that wonderful DSP, In Good Taste, seemed like a natural choice for the backdrop for these potted plants.

A card suitable for many reasons, and for a man or woman I'd say.

I'm sure Claire Daly's card will be delightful, let's hop on over and check it out together.

If the next button is not working or you'd like to see the entire list of participants, go to Catherine Proctor's blog.

Your orders are very much appreciated, no matter how small or big, every little bit helps me to meet my minimums, and keep on creating. Hopefully you are inspired by some of the projects I share, and want to make your own. My online shop is open anytime and delivery by tracked Australia Post takes 5-10 days.

Product List


  1. Rachel I really love the elegant simplicity and symmetry of this card - it is stunning!

  2. The brick paper is the perfect choice for a backdrop to your plants, Rachel! I love how you used the Picture This Die, and anchored the potted plants on Gray Granite rectangles. Beautifully done!

  3. The die cut windows are the perfect place to pop the pot plants. The brick DSP and textured background look fabulous.

  4. Oh wow, I really love this! It reminds me of Mediterranean windows. That die cut piece is perfect with the plants. I really like the contrast of the dark embossed sentiment piece too.

  5. Great choice of papers for your card, Rachel. The Timeworn embossing is perfect in those windows behind the gorgeous potted plants!

  6. Great way to use the Picture This die Rachel. It reminds me of some of the beautiful window arrangements we saw in our tour of Italy.

  7. This is a great unisex design Rachel. I love the fussy cut plants and the use of the Picture This dies.
