Art With Heart Colour Creations - Granny Apple Green

This week's colour theme is Granny Apple Green. A lovely bright, fresh green, it is another new addition to our colour range.
For today's card I used the Rooted in Nature Bundle and the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing folder.

To achieve the multi coloured image on the tree stamp I first inked the leaves in Granny Apple Green from the ink pad and removed the excess ink from the trunk with a cotton bud. I then coloured the trunk with the Early Espresso Stampin' Marker and added a few bits of Call Me Clover with the CMC marker. This was then stamped onto Whisper White card stock and cut out with the coordinating die.

There is a small piece of Copper Twine that has been stretched out under the cross section image, which was stamped in Early Espresso. The Granny Apple Green background was embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing folder.

For more Granny Apple Green inspiration head to Cathy's blog for a full list of participants.
You're welcome to contact me with any questions you may have.

Thanks for stopping by,
Happy stampin,


  1. Rachel I love the simplicity of your card, it really showcases Garden Green. Thanks for hopping along tonight.

  2. Great card Rachel, the embossed leaves really compliment the design.

  3. Rachel what a great card and I love how you got the colour on the tree!

  4. Oh, that is a clever way of colouring the stamp using a cotton bud to remove the colour. Looks great!

  5. Fabulous (and could be a great male themed card too). I really like your tips for incorporating more colours into the tree.

  6. Really love this card and the colouring details on the tree. That copper twine is so gorgeous as a finishing touch.

  7. Lovely Card and great technique thanks for sharing it.
