Welcome Kre8tors! So excited to have you here for the Kre8tors Blog Hop! Be sure to use that Next button below to hop along to the next amazing blog post for some more crafty inspiration! This month’s theme is GREEN! I wanted to showcase green this month for a couple reasons; 1. St. Patrick’s Day is this month! Always a fun reason for GREEN! And 2. to celebrate the fact that spring is just around the corner! I can’t wait for some sunshine!
I decided to use the leafy images from the Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle. That bundle comes with TWO stamp sets with coordinating die cuts. I mixed and matched between the two. I watercolored my background, stamped a few images, and then glued on all my cut pieces.
I love the different textures the stamped images in the background provide. They really make this card more interesting. The leafy greens that were cut from Old Olive cardstock are all layered on top of a black circle from the Peaceful Poppies Elements. I really thing this black piece makes the greens pop!
The Old Olive Rhinestones are from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones pack. They were perfect to use on this card, since we could only use greens, black, and white. I wanted to add a little fun texture behind the label, so I used some Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine. I was able to shorten the label by running it through my Big Shot twice. Check out my video tutorial below to see how I did it!
I’ve always been a fan of the splatter look and this stamp combined with the water color background look so neat together. All of these greens working together really makes me so happy! What’s your favorite color to work with?
I do hope you enjoyed this project today, and maybe I’ve inspired you to play around with a monochromatic palette on your next project! I’d love to see what you create. Tag me on Facebook or Instagram with @MKre8tions.
