I’m not a big reader of non fiction books. I tend to read to escape this world or for poor entertainment. There are a few exceptions to this rule. Book that expand my philosophy on life. I love reading about different philosophes. Right now, War on Art is this book. I have so enjoyed reading this book about the creative process and what it is that keeps us from our muse. War on Art was a suggested reading in an online art class I am taking. Wild Awakening, painting Big is a mixed media class by the very talented Jeanne Oliver. I am learning so much about myself and my creative process from this class. If you want to learn something new check out all the awesome classes from this sight! And check out the book War on Art. I truly am learning what keeps me from creating and why I should push myself to create more, blog more, paint more, live more! I have learned that blogging for you guys is an area that I really feel a lot of resistance. Witch means it is something I should be doing more!!! Like sharing with you beautiful color combinations including today’s Granny Apple Green, Night of Navy, and Whisper White.
The Creative Way – A Product Feature
Each month, I pick one product to share with you guys. It can be a stamp set, a coloring tool, a color, a die, a embossing folder. Just about anything!!! I thought a lot about exactly what I wanted to share with you guys. Did I want to do a Christmas in July idea, or did I want to use a stamp set, was I going to feature the new upcoming watercolor pencils. That’s right, you heard me right!!! There are new watercolor pencils coming soon!!! This made me very excited!!! In the end, I picked a color to feature this month. This color speaks summer to me!!! And since it is July, hot as all get out, and summer it was the perfect time to feature the all NEW Granny Apple Green!!!
So, what will you see this month. You will see fun color combinations, different techniques to use ink and paper, you will see it stamped, with Designer Series Paper, and how the color Granny Apple Green is Awesome!!!
Granny Apple Green is available in cardstock, Ink pad, Stampin’ Blends, Ribbon, and in the Designer Series Paper Tropical Escape! In August a new set of watercolor pencils will be available! And Granny Apple Green will be apart of this assortment of pencils! Yeppie

Can we say, Love it!!! This ribbon is awesome!!! It is apart of the Tropical Escape Suite of products!! This is absolutely one of my favorite suites in the Annual Catalog!!! I love the colors, the beach fell, and the happy vibe!!! Witch leads me to the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper.
Boy, do I love this awesome paper!!! So, the only product that is missing from this list is the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Wright marker. This marker is available two ways. Either with the New Color Assortment or the Brights Stampin’ Wright Markers
Today, I chose to pair Granny Apple Green with Night of Navy and Whisper White! This color combination is just perfect for manly cards! It is also great for anyone who loves a nautical feel!!! It screams preppy!!! And I love that!! I so would love a plaid out of this color combination, maybe one day!!!
- The Granny Apple Green was cut into 1/2 inch strips
- Then glued down onto the Night of Navy cardstock
- The next step was to use the layering ovals dies to create a stacked look.
- The sail boats from, Liliypad Lake was stamped in Night of Navy. Then colored with the Granny Apple Green, Gray Granite, Night of Navy, and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Wright Markers. These images are small, which make them perfect for coloring with the Stampin’ Wright Markers
- The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings! I adore this stamp set. I really debated about which sentiment to use from Itty Bitty Greetings. Happy Day, Thank You, Always & Forever…in the end Happy Birthday won out!!!
I hope you enjoyed seeing this preppy fun color combination as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you!
