2020 Kre8tors March Blog Hop Color Challenge Green Monochromatic

It's time to hop along with the 2020 Kre8tors March Blog Hop as we share our projects created using this month's challenge, Green Monochromatic. We can use any of Stampin' Up!'s beautiful Green colors that are currently available as well as Basic Black and Whisper White to create our projects for you. I hope that our ideas will help inspire you to explore creating your own "Green" project ready for Spring. 
 With St Patrick's Day just around the corner, I couldn't resist designing a card to fit the theme. To create this card design, I chose the Heartfelt Bundle (item #153775) from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and paired it with Call Me Clover and Granny Apple Green to create this pretty card. The Heartfelt Bundle features the Heartfelt stamp set (item #151417)and the coordinating Heart Punch Pack (item #151292) and when these products are purchased as a bundle, you save 10%. While this bundle may be considered traditionally suited for Valentine's Day projects, I think you will see that with a change in colors, these products can work well for many occasions. 
 To create this card design, I chose Call Me Clover cardstock for my card base and added a layer of Call Me Clover Gingham Designer Series Paper from the 2018-2020 In Color 6"x6" Designer Series Paper Pack (item #149618) for the background. I colored two pieces of Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon (item #144213) with the Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blend Marker and added them to the top and bottom of the gingham layer. 
To create the focal images, I stamped two of the detailed lace heart images from the Heartfelt stamp set with Call Me Clover Classic ink onto a piece of Call Me Clover cardstock. I then punched them out using the Scalloped Heart Punch from the Heart Punch Pack. I also punched out one of the Scalloped Hearts from Granny Apple Green cardstock. Next, I stamped the dotted outline heart from the stamp set onto Whisper White card stock using Call Me Clover Classic ink and stamped the sentiment in the center of the heart with the same color ink. I punched out this heart using the Heart Punch and layered it onto the Granny Apple Green Scalloped heart using Snail Adhesive. I attached the two Call Me Clover Scalloped Hearts to the card front with Snail Adhesive and added the sentiment heart to the center using Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up. I punched out two small hearts using the Dog Builder Punch (item #148543) from a scrap of Granny Apple Green cardstock and attached them to the centers of the Call Me Clover Lace hearts using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. 
For a touch of bling, I added three of the small Old Olive Rhinestones from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones (item #149494) to the sentiment heart and I colored two of the small Basic Rhinestones (item #144220) with the Dark Call Me Clover Stampin' Blend Marker and added them to the center of the small Granny Apple Green hearts. I love the combination of Call Me Clover and Granny Apple Green and will be sad to see Call Me Clover retire soon as part of the 2018-2020 In Colors. If you are like me and love any of these beautiful colors, I recommend that you stock up on your favorite products in these colors before they disappear.
