Week 2 Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop
I was very happy to see this lovely colour in our new 2022-2024 In Colours. I have been wanting a lighter green that was much brighter than Pear Pizzazz. This one tones beautifully with Granny Apple Green.
The HUES OF HAPPINESS Designer Series Paper contains Granny Apple Green in all the leaves, originally painted in such a way as to provide several light and dark tones of the colour - some of which are very close to PARAKEET PARTY.
So when it came to making cards using Parakeet Party, I really wanted to show off the beautiful designer series paper again.
I chose Parakeet Party A4 card stock for the base cards. If you mark 7cm on one short end and 14cms on the other short end, then cut on that diagonal line right across the card, you get two matching pieces to make two Zig Zag Fold Cards.
I used the Parakeet Party Ink Pad for the greeting stamps, finding a mix of greetings from a couple of different stamp sets, which I stamped onto Basic White card stock, die-cut with the smaller label die from the Painted Labels Dies.
The flowers from the Designer Series Paper are all fussy cut with my favourite Paper Snips, and adhered with Stampin' Seal.
