Seize the Birthday Challenge #209~Three Shades of Green...Stitched Turnabout Have an Awesome Birthday


I'm delighted to once again join the Seize the Birthday team with my third Surprise Party Guest appearance over at the Seize the Birthday Challenge

With St, Patrick's Day rapidly approaching, the topping is 3 Shades of Green and yep...I went for it!

Because Concord & 9th turnabouts are rather *ahem* plentiful in my stash, they're often a 'go to' when a challenge calls for colour combinations. Here, I used not three, but four, shades of green ink, also from C & 9th, with the Stitched Turnabout: Sprout, Parsley, Clover and Sea Glass. Four turns, one die cut heart, one sentiment (Studio Katia)...done! The most time consuming part was aligning the stamp onto the template for the jig - and even that didn't take long. In fact, by starting with the lightest ink first, I also didn't need to clean my stamp between applications. So simple! 

Thank you, Nancy and the rest of the team, for inviting me to play cards with you in March.  To my visitors: thank you for dropping by. I hope you'll join us in the gallery, with or without the topping.

Thank you for dropping by!

I have been really interested in those turn about stamps, but do not own any as yet. You may have changed my mind. I really like the look that you got on this card. You didn't stop there, that texture on the heart is amazing.

Oh my goodness, I own this stamp set and didn't even know it could look this good! I love it in shades of greens. There is so much detail and the love the added texture in the heart. Wonderful card, my friend!

Great stamping of the background and use of different greens!

Nancy said...

You are the Queen of so many things and now I need to add TAB cards to the list! Another great thought-out creation in all the glorious green! Have a great day!

Gorgeous chintzy card, Carol, and I love your shortcut of using the lightest colour first so you didn’t have to clean the stamp. That’s my kind of stamping 😆

Lindsey said...

Such a beautiful card! I love the embroidered look and the various shades of green. It brings calmness just by looking at it. Thank you for yet another fabulous inspiration for us at Seize the Birthday challenge!

This is so lovely! So great that you went the extra mile (kilometre) and used 4 shades of green! I have yet to try one of those turnabout sets - you make it look easy (I really am scared of them).
