I got married and changed my name in September, so it seems fitting to re-invent my website too with a new look and a new name. I’m so excited about my name change to Green Moon Stamp Studio. It fits me since I’m a moon-child hippy chick. Green is also my favorite color and now also in my name, Greenlee,…how lucky is that???
The new logo and site which is in progress (possible viewable as you’re reading this, but if not, then very soon) is inspired by my Scottish and Irish roots and my love for the moon and nature. I will start posting and doing videos more often now that my life is settling into a new groove with my amazing husband.

Last month, I did a birthday card stamp-a-stack class with these 3 card designs. Thought you might enjoy seeing them.
Check out this card inspired by Shelby’s card I saw at OnStage this last weekend (she works at the Stampin’ Up! home office). I added an additional layer and changed the sentiment. I love how simple and earthy it is.
I had fun coloring these with the new Stampin’ Blends. I used the Vintage Leaves set and the You’ve Got This set. You could put any sentiment on this card, but I used the “Just a Note” from Flourishing Phrases.
The Spotlight Technique was the perfect choice to color in just a portion of this huge stamp from the Occasions Catalog (aka the Spring Catalog). Of course, it is beautiful fully colored in too. I do love just plain black and white though, and this is a step above that.
Here is the Technique Journal page I did on this technique for my club.
Have a crafty week!
Here’s an easy wow to spice up your cards. I’ve seen these before, but didn’t realize just how easy they are. The tunnel card technique instructions are below on the technique page I made for my stamp club members.
Here’s the front. The whole scene is dusted with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. It didn’t show in the photo, so use your imagination…lol. I used Winter Wonderland Specialty paper and the Wonderland stamp set.
And, here’s the technique page with a tiny sample tunnel card.
I have seen this look quite a bit and did a little research to make sure I knew how to achieve it. For August, my stamp clubs got treated to this technique and some water-coloring too for these cards.
I let my club members choose their designer paper from the 3 sheets I picked out to coordinate, and we also made a page in our Technique Book for this technique.
We used the Farmers Market designer series paper and Market Fresh stamp set that coordinates from the annual catalog (the big one).
Tip: Put dimensionals all around under the frame for a deeper inset look. I used 6 dimensionals on each card.
Here’s another one of my June club projects. The color combo on this Bohemian designer series paper is amazingly rich and bold. Even when I run out of this paper, I will probably copy the color scheme for projects. That’s a great way to inspire a color theme anyway…just copy the color scheme of your favorite designer paper.
To frame the washi tape with twine and keep it in place, just cut notches in your mat. Here’s a close up. By the way, these foil doilies are great. I can’t wait to design something using the larger ones in the pack.
I also used the matching Bohemian Borders stamp set to dress up the envelope and the white mat for inside the card.
