Going Green - Stampotique Designer's Challenge

Hello all and Happy Wednesday to you. As you know today is my day to post over at the Stampotique Designer's Blog and for today's creation I have created two cards.

Our wonderful guest designer Kristen Catalano has challenged us to "Use Green as Our Primary Color"

Be sure to hop on over to the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog and check out all the wonderful inspiration from the design team. 

I have used Stampotique Stamp

Stella - by artist Jo Capper-Sandon 

Stella is awesome and I just love the way she looks so serene just sitting there
Unfortunately I didn't take many photos of how this project came together but I did use a technique by 
Wendy Vecchi who demonstrated this technique at CHA 2014. 
I don't have any of the re-inkers so I just simply spread two colors onto my craft sheet directly from the ink pad itself. 
I think my backgrounds came out similar
Her technique creates such a beautiful subtle background, I just love it.

For the letters I simply used chipboard and painted them green and then added a bit of glossy accents onto the top to make them shine.

I think the rest is pretty simple, just some tule and flowers

I wanted each card to be a tad different so I added different words. 

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by


  1. Your backgrounds are just stunning.... I love how they look

  3. Love the peach you have added with the green on this and the variety of cards you created.

  4. Beautifully done, Claudine! That peachy color is a brilliant complement to the green shade you chose. Well put together!
