Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase week 46 - Shaded Spruce

It's week 46 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase and this week our projects are featuring Shaded Spruce, a lovely rich green in our Regals collection. We are almost at the end of our showcase, but we have decided to extend it for another 5 weeks to include the 5 new 2021-2023 In Colours.

I wanted to use one of the soon to be discontinued stamp set and die combinations for this week's card. I chose the Geared Up Garage stamp set and the coordinating Garage Gears dies.

I started with a Night of Navy card base. The Shaded Spruce background has been stamped in Shaded Spruce ink with the smudge or watermark stamp.

The main gear piece has been cut from Gold Foil paper and the smaller dies have been cut from Just Jade card stock.

I cut the gears from the gold mat before I attached it to the back of the Shaded Spruce piece. I try to be as economical as possible with my supplies so that I can afford to buy lots more! :) 

The greeting is stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.

Another masculine card to add to my stash, very happy with this one. If you're quick the dies are still available in our Last Chance Products sale.

For more Shaded Spruce inspiration from the AWHT head to Cathy's blog for a complete list of tonight's participants.

Next we are featuring Smoky Slate in our Showcase.

If you haven't received a copy of the new 2021-2022 Catalogue and would like one, and if you live in Australia, drop me a line and I will get one to you.

Until next time,
Happy stamping,
