Shades of Green

 Happy Saturday, peeps!  Hope your weekend has some fun plans!  I have a couple of cards to share today, both featuring shades of green!  The first one is for the FMS sketch and uses some retired items:

The set I used is called Harvest Home, and it was stamped on some Naturals White cardstock with Stazon and watercolored with various inks.  I overstamped it with the Linen background stamp because I just love the effect that it gives!  The leaf is from the same set, fussy-cut, and the sentiment is from a Paper Pumpkin kit from a few years back.  The papers are from Orchard Harvest, also a few years back. I love the line-drawing detail in these types of stamps:


My next card uses the sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesday:


I had these three little strips of Forever Greenery floating around on my desk for several weeks and when I saw the sketch, I knew they would be perfect!  I diecut them with a narrow Stitched Rectangle die; they weren't quite long enough to go all the way across the card, so I cut and separated them and just layered my Pretty Peacock banner on top:


The sentiment is from Comfort and Hope, and I overstamped it with an image from the same set, stamped off with Old Olive.  I used the Stitched Shapes dies to cut it out, then backed it with another diecut from Tasteful Labels.  It was finished off with some retired Old Olive Linen thread:


That's it for today!  So happy you popped in!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!  And, someone asked me for my daughter's Spaghetti Squash Lasagna recipe; unfortunately, it does use marinara sauce, but I am sure you could substitute alfredo if you didn't like tomatoes.  Also, I am pretty sure she used ground turkey instead of sausage!  You can find the recipe HERE.

And here are a few more natures pictures from my walks this week:





Enjoy your day and be blessed!

OH LeAnne, I think you just lead me to my next background stamp! What a fabulous idea to over-stamp it - makes it appear as if it's been stamped on a canvas!
Both cards are so perfect for Fall! Thanks for sharing your walks with us, too!

The linen stamp makes the first card look like a fine tapestry and it is just stunning! Love the paper hugs card too - so much fun! Nature is at her finest this time of year, and I'm glad you get out to enjoy it!

Ooh, the Forever Fern one would make a great Mystery Card. I think I'll CASE this one and let you know how it turns out! Have a blessed day.
