CCBH Shaded Spruce - Week 42

Hi everyone! It’s good to be back for the Colour Creations blog hop this week as I seemed to have missed the last few…as they say life just got too busy!

This weeks colour is Shaded Spruce from the Regals colour family and a deep green. I don’t use this green often apart from Christmas cards so it’s nice to be challenged.

The stamp set I have used is Dahlia Days from Stampin’ Up! January-June 2022 mini catalogue. I started by stamping the Dahlia flowers in Polished Pink ink and leaves in Shaded Spruce ink and then die cut from the Dahlia Days bundle.

The two triangle panels were cut diagonally from top corner to bottom corner of DSP and Shaded Spruce card stock. I coloured the All Together DSP using L&D Shaded Spruce and L&D Mint Macaron and dry embossed the card stock panel with Stitched Greenery EF.

The front of the Basic White card base was embossed using Timeworn Type EF. The sentiment is from the Dahlia Days set too and stamped with Shaded Spruce ink. I have double mounted the sentiment onto matching card stock.

The sentiment inside the card is from the Celebrating You stamp set, also from the mini catalogue and stamped with Polished Pink ink. I love this font and suits the occasion for Mother’s Day which is coming up in May.

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

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week ahead everyone!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous, Rosa. I adore your trio of flowers and the three different triangles of DSP, Embossing and the greenery die impression. A wonderful Mother's Day card!

  3. Utterly gorgeous card, Rosa! LOVE the three triangle panels, and your colouring of the DSP. The pop of pink is a perfect choice.

  4. Such a lovely card Rosa and all the individual elements come together beautifully. and that pink is a perfect contrast to the Shaded Spruce

  5. A gorgeous designed card Rosa. I love the mix of die-cuts, embossing and DSP as well as some hand colouring with the blends. A beautiful card.
