Art With Heart Colour Creations - Shaded Spruce

This week's Colour Creation colour is Shaded Spruce, a wonderful rich, emerald green. I have two cards to share with you which feature stamp sets that are not returning in the next catalogue.

The first one features the Lovely As A Tree set which has been available longer than I have been with Stampin' Up!, but is sadly leaving us when the current catalogue finishes on the 2nd of June. This card also uses the Woodland embossing folder, which happily will be back for another year.


The second card uses the Flowering Desert stamp set which is currently in the Occasions Catalogue, but unfortunately it is not carrying over to the new catalogue. 

I hope you love this colour as much as I do and thank you for stopping by to check out my cards. For more Shaded Spruce inspiration head to Cathy's blog, where you will find a full list of today's participants.

The discontinued product lists have been released and the items on these lists are only available until sold out or until the 2nd of June. Click below to see all these products on my online store.

 Also coming soon is Australia's first Paper Pumpkin Kit. These have been very popular in the US and now it's our turn with a very special kit co-designed by Shelli, the co-founder of Stampin' Up! These are only available until stocks sell out so if you are interested please contact me ASAP or order online on the 15th of May.

Here's a sample of one of the cards in the kit that we made at the Stampin' Up! Onstage event in Auckland. The kit contains all supplies to make 12 cards, 3 each of 4 designs.

Contact me with any questions, I love to talk about Stampin' Up!

Happy stamping,


  1. Wow Rachel, I love the effect you achieved with lovely as a tree and the woodland embossing folder on the first card and your second card has a great colour combination too! Thanks for hopping along tonight

  2. Lovely cards Rachel. I will miss both of those stamp sets as they are very versatile.

  3. Lovely as a tree.......... how sad this is leaving us. Beautiful cards Rachel.

  4. I love the way you have used the embossing folder, and I have to admit that I am a little sad to see Lovely As A Tree retiring.
