Colour Creations - Mossy Meadow Week 33



Hello fellow crafters! It’s a new year and I’m back joining in for this week’s 2023-24 Colour Creations blog hop where team members of the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! demonstrators showcase a new colour every Wednesday. This week’s colour is Mossy Meadow, a darker green that is part of the Neutrals colour family.

For this weeks card I am using the stamp and die bundle Garden Meadow and matching Meandering Meadows DSP. These items can be purchased as an ‘online exclusive’ and the DSP has some beautiful painted nature scenes that do all the work and so you can just add a sentiment to finish off your card.


The card stock base is Mossy Meafow and my card measurements are 21cm x 15cm. The card base is scored on the long side at 2.8cm, 5.6cm, then flipped over and scored using the same measurements on the other side.



I have then cut a 6” x 6” DSP panel to fit the middle section and the two outer panels. On the inner smaller panels I have adhered a layer of Subtles DSP in Soft Sea foam that was coloured with Mossy Meadow ink and a Blending Brush. This gives a softer colour to the full strength Mossy Meadow.


There are various dies in the set one of which is the gate panels and the other I have used are the grassy bits. The grass is two tones of green card stock in Mossy Meadow and Garden Green. These were adhered to the base and sides to create a Bridge-fold. 

The sentiment is stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink onto Basic White card stock. I have used a new product from the January - May mini catalogue to die cut the sentiment. The die set is called Perennial Postage. I have also brushed the edges with a Blending Brush and Mossy Meadow ink.

To finish the card I adhered some of the cute brass Butterflies to the sentiment panel.


The card folds flat to one side, resulting in a 6” x 6” card. I will need to make a matching envelope before giving it to the recipient.

Hope you enjoy the remaining blog hop where you can find more Mossy Meadow inspiration from the very talented Christine Blain.

  1. Rosa, you've paired the Garden Meadow stamp and die bundle perfectly with the Meandering Meadows DSP in your delightful bridge fold card. The two tones of green card stock for the grass add so much dimension to the scene iand your white gate pops against the darker colours of the DSP and the card base.

  2. Great idea, to blend Mossy Meadow ink on Soft Sea Foam card to "tone it down" a bit, Rosa. I love the addition of the gates to your card. Lovely Mossy Meadow creation.
