CTC238 – Garden Lane Colours

Well I hope you are ready for a sea of green today!  It’s time for another CASEing the Catty Design Team Blog Hop and this week’s challenge is using the colour scheme of the Garden Lane DSP.  Have you had a look at the colours in this DSP?  I think it includes most of the greens we have!  Ok, there are a few that aren’t in there, but there is quite a few!

The colours in the Garden Lane DSP are Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White.

Whether you’ve hopped on over from Tina’s butterfly creation or are starting here with me, welcome.

I decided to use a number of these colours in my card this week, using Soft Sea Foam for the card base and mat which I embossed using the dies from the Natures Roots dies.  For the leaves I stamped the large leaves in Garden Green, small leaves in Mossy Meadow (stamped off) from the Rooted in Nature stamp set and the embossed leaves are in Pear Pizzazz.  The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Whisper White and then cut out using the Stitched Nested Dies which I cut half way, then moved it along and cut the other half so it was a smaller shape.  The sentiment comes from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.

With so many different shades of green this week, what style of card will you make?  Will it be a nature type card like mine, or will you come up with something totally different and unexpected?  Please share your creation with us on our Facebook page by clicking the image below.

Next up on the hop is Shannon.  Make sure you keep hopping around to see what the rest of the team have come up with for this colour scheme.

Until next time, happy stamping



  1. what a gorgeous detailed debossed background. That’s a beautiful card Michelle, and a bit more time consuming than it appears I’m sure. I love your collection of different types and styles of leaves.

  2. Gorgeous card, Michelle! I love the embossed background and your collection of leaves – perfect for shades of green.

  3. Beautiful leaves! I love the combination of embossing and die cutting of the leaves. The short stitched label is super cute – great tip for getting more sizes out of the dies like that. 🙂 Siobhan.
