Stampin' Up! Shaded Spruce


Welcome to week 42 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations blog hop for 2022. This week's feature colour is Shaded Spruce, which is a member of the Regals colour group. 

 I find Shaded Spruce a very bold green colour that usually only comes out around Christmas time however it does also make me think of leaves and foliage and that is the path I have taken for my card this week. 

I decided that it had been sometime since I had inked up the Forever Fern bundle and thought this would be a good option for Shaded Spruce. 

I started by stamping several of the foliage pieces in Soft Sea Foam, Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce and then die cutting them with the corresponding dies. I have then mounted them on a piece of Basic White cardstock that I have embossed using one of the Greenery embossing folders. This has then all been mounted on a piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock.  The sentiment is from Eden's Garden and has been stamped in Shaded Spruce and die cut using one of the Layering circles dies and then mounted on a scalloped piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock. Finally I have added some Gold Elegant trim and a scattering of Genial Gems.

Next in tonight's blog hop is  our lovely host Catherine Proctor. I look forward to seeing what beautiful creation she has to share with us tonight.

  1. Lovely use of all the greens, with these beautiful leafy stamps, T. My favourite part of your card is the white panel embossed with the Greenery embossing folder; perfect backdrop to the gorgeous stamped images. This is a really beautiful card.

  2. Lovely combination of all those greens, Theresa. I love all this foliage layered onto the Greenery embossing folder. Beautiful card.

  3. Theresa the stamped leaves in different shades of green and the embossing with gold trim is very elegant. Lovely card!

  4. I love the detailed embossing in the background to compliment the stamped images in front with the varying green tones around the central sentiment.

  5. A pretty combination of greens Theresa and I love the overall softness of the card created by the die cut leaves and embossing.
