Granny Apple Green Colour Challenge 2

Stampin' Up! Round of Applause Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Hello and welcome to Week 2 of my Stampin’ Up! Granny Apple Green Colour Challenge! This week the combination is: Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy and Real Red. I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Round Of Applause Stamp Set as I wanted to send a Congratulations card to someone who has been amazing recently. I hope you like my Round Of Applause Card and I hope they do too!

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Night of Navy cardstock. I have then used a layer of Granny Apple Green cardstock measuring 6 x 14.9 cm. Onto this layer I have repeatedly stamped the sentiment – ‘you can do anything (obviously)’ in Granny Apple Green ink.

The main sentiment and wreath are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched Shapes dies. The wreath is coloured in using the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.

The floral image is stamped three times in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock. These are coloured using the Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy and Real Red Stampin’ Blends and then fussy-cut. The floral images are adhered to the back of the sentiment piece using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A length of Night of Navy Ribbon (from the Playing With Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack) is adhered to the card front using Tear & Tape. The sentiment piece is then adhered over the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is to create an insert with the ‘congratulations’ sentiment stamped in Night of Navy ink and the floral image stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured as above.

What do you think?

I love my Colour Challenges as it means that I use combinations that I wouldn’t generally choose. Granny Apple Green and Night of Navy go together surprisingly well and I love the little hints of Real Red. Do you like my Round Of Applause Card?
