March InKing Royalty Blog Hop, green. #stampcandy

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s March Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around GREEN. We are excited to share our creations with you today – there’s a wonderful variety of styles and occasions celebrated in this hop! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

When I was trying to come up with an idea for the green theme, I thought of leaves and grass first. Then military. Saint Patrick’s Day is over so I didn’t want to go there. Then I thought of money. (If you’re outside the US you probably have different colors of currency, but here in the states we only have the one color: green.) I thought of making a money holder. Then I remembered the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set has a stamp of a folded up bill! So I had my stamp set, and coordinating dies, picked out.

Then I had to decide which color of green. The pocket brought to mind a shirt I saw very recently that was green plaid, and had a lot of different greens, so I used that for inspiration. To loosely mimic the plaid, I wove together strips of card stock in assorted greens for the background. I used a Floral Romance Seal as a coin.

Here’s what I made:

I think it’s interesting to see all these greens together like this. Lemon Lime Twist looks yellow; Shaded Spruce looks blue; and Mossy Meadow looks brown.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Very Vanilla Thick card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • various size strips of CS: Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Garden Green, Mossy Meadow, Shaded Spruce, Tranquil Tide,  and Call Me Clover

Stamped with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set:

  • pocket stitching in Shaded Spruce ink onto a scrap of Call Me Clover CS
  • sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink onto the pocket
  • money in Shaded Spruce ink onto a scrap of Soft Sea Foam CS

Die cut using the Pocket Framelits Dies:

  • pocket and money

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • wove strips of CS together and held them together on the back with tape
  • cut the woven CS to 4″ x 5-1/4″, then glued it onto the front of the card base
  • glued pocket onto the woven layer
  • tucked the stamped money into the pocket and glued into place
  • tucked a self-adhesive gold seal “coin” into the pocket
