Growing Green

I’m taking a moment out to bring you one more summer card (as fall quickly approaches…)

The ‘Growing Green’ set is one of the new floral sets from Stampin’ Up! this year.  The clean, simple outline design makes it SUPER easy (and fun) to color, and in this case I used the Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi and Pacific Point watercolor crayons and an Aquapainter.

The rose and the smaller flower were stamped on Very Vanilla and then cut out and adhered to the focal layer.

I really, really like the combination of deep greens and vanilla.  I took that combination from the ‘Woodland Greens’ designer paper… my natural instinct would have been to go with white, but another benefit of working with the designer papers are the color combinations that really wow!

I’ve included the recipe below with all of the accessories that I’ve used.  Today I am getting ready to go to Maryland for Stampin’ Up!’s Regional conference… I look forward to swapping and seeing friends and downline I haven’t seen in a long time!  Happy stamping to you!
