Green With Envy – Mossy Meadow Round Two!

Stamping/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Hey Stampers! Today's project is a “Christmas in July” sample. I told you Mossy Meadow is one of my favorite new Stampin' Up! green colors so today I have Green With Envy – Mossy Meadow Round Two! As shown in today's project, when you “off stamp” you get a different shade of the original color.

Green With Envy - Mossy Meadow Round Two!

This technique really adds dimension to the card. Try this with different ink colors and you'll be amazed at the versatility of the results. It's like having three ink pads in one!

Here are the supplies, cutting dimensions and instructions.

Supplies:

  • Stamp SetsSnowflake Sentiments (144820); Lovely As A Tree (127793)
  • Card Stock – Very Vanilla Cardstock (101650); Early Espresso Cardstock (119686)
  • Stamp Pads – Mossy Meadow Ink (147111); Balmy Blue Ink (147105); Early Espresso Ink (147114)
  • Misc. –Snail Adhesive (104332); Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (141897); Sponge Dauber (133773)

Measurements:

  • Card Stock 1:      8.5” x 5.5”                              Card Base
  • Card Stock 2:     4” x 5.25”                               Very Vanilla Card Front

Instructions:

  1. Fold the Early Espresso card stock in half creating your card base.
  2. Stamp the tree on your Very Vanilla card front so that the trees closest to you are stamped in full strength after inking and the trees further away are stamped again without reinking your stamp.
  3. Then using your sponge dauber and Balmy Blue ink, very lightly ink the top ¾ of card front, creating a sky effect.
  4. Then using your Wink of Stella brush, add glitter to the fully stamped trees to give the effect of glistening snow or ice. Also dab the brush randomly in the sky for snow flakes and sweep across the ground for snow.
  5. After the glitter has had a few moments to dry, stamp your sentiment in the top corner.
  6. Finally, adhere your card front to your card base.

Green With Envy – LOVE the new Stampin’ Up! Green Hues!

Announcements/ Join My Team/ Paper crafting/ Paper Pumpkin

Green With Envy – LOVE the new Stampin' Up! Green Hues! Hey Stampers! My stamp clubs and classes this month used several of the new Stampin' Up! “greens”. I thought I would carry that green theme onto the blog for a few days this week.

Today's green is Mossy Meadow. If you've been around Stampin' Up! for awhile, you might remember this color from one of our In Color collections a few years back. I was SO happy to see this color return (along with Blackberry Bliss, from the same IC group)!
