CCBH Mossy Meadow - Week 30

Hello and Happy New Year to everyone joining tonight! May 2022 bring much hope, happiness, good health and crafting fun. Thank you for joining the first Colour Creations blog hop for the Art With Heart team in 2022. This weeks colour is Mossy Meadow a dark mossy green from the Neutrals colour family.

The start of the new year always coincides with a new Stampin’ Up! January - June mini catalogue and being a demonstrator we get to pre-order and play with some of the gorgeous new products. These items from the Mini catalogue are now available from 4th January until 30th June 2022.

And more exciting news on top of the new catalogue is that you have the opportunity to earn FREE products with a qualifying purchase as part of the Sale-a-bration promotion. So stocking up on supplies during this period is always a good idea 🙂!

The new stamp set used this week is Dahlia Days and it comes in a bundle with matching dies - Dahlia Days bundle.

I started by creating my own DSP using the larger Dahlia stamp in Poppy Parade, So Saffron and Pale Papaya inks. The dahlia flower detail is just exquisite in this set and it also has some inspirational sentiments too. The leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow ink and the smaller leafy twig in Soft Succulent ink. The smaller floral bouquet is stamped in Bumble Bee ink.

For my first card I have used a 5 inch x 5 inch square card base in Basic White card stock. Before adhering the inked DSP I wrapped some Simply Elegant gold trim three times and then adhered with dimensionals to the base to add dimension.

The inspirational sentiment is stamped with VersaMark onto Mossy Meadow card stock and heat embossed with White embossing powder. It was then die cut with a small scalloped edge die from Stitched So Sweetly die set.

On my second card the inked DSP has been mounted onto a die cut layer in Mossy Meadow using the Ornate Layers die set. This is then adhered to a Basic White card stock base with dimensionals.

The sentiment is also stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I have die cut the sentiment using the small rectangle from the Stitched Rectangles die set and added the newly retired White Glittered Organdy ribbon before adhering the sentiment with dimensionals. To finish off I have added some Opal Rounds to the background.

The inked DSP on my third card is die cut using the largest scalloped die from the Scalloped Contours die set and adhered to a Mossy Meadow card stock base.

The sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow ink and die cut with the banner die from Tasteful Labels die set. The sentiment is adhered to the just retired Whimsy & Wonder DSP. I have also added an Opal Round to the bottom of the banner.

Hope you enjoy the remaining blog hop where you can find more inspiration from the next participant, the very talented Christine Blain.

  1. These are beautiful, Rosa. I love that you created your own stamped patterned paper and the colours you have chosen for the flowers is divine. The way you put your cards together using different products is outstanding.

  2. Love your one-sheet-wonder cards - great colours to use with Mossy Meadow.

  3. Beautiful cards Ros, I hadn’t noticed this set until now! Thanks, another one on my list

  4. Mossy Meadow is a beautiful, elegant, green that complements those bright colours so well. Your stamped panels are just gorgeous, Rosa, and I love how you've composed three different cards from the "DSP" you created.

  5. Rosa I just love your handmade DSP and the way you have created three very different cards using it. I would never have thought to stamp with these colours together but they look fantastic - I love the old fashioned feel you have created with this.

  6. Rosa, all three of your cards are so beautiful. Great OSW design and Mossy Meadow takes on a whole new look on your lovely cards. I love the colour combo too!
