Nature Inspired Card

I’m so excited about this card because it’s Nature Inspired! I’ve paired Winter Woods with Rooted in Nature to bring you this fun card. I used the Stamparatus to get a beautifully stamped background, and to get a sentiment rich in color! This card is a free make and take I am demonstrating at a charitable event, Let’s Stamp Out Hunger, on Saturday, April 6th!

I love how this card turned out, and I especially love the embossed background! I used the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on half of the card base. I have a great tip for embossing the front of your card. Check out my video at the link below to see how I did it!

I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the leaves, although on this sample my Wink of Stella got a little carried away! Be careful you don’t add too much. Although it kind of has a fun look to it, what do you think?

This card would definitely look beautiful in any color combination, but Crumb Cake and Garden Green really make all the textures on this card stand out! I love how the Stamparatus works so beautifully with the birch trees stamp from Winter Woods!

And that Burlap Ribbon adds a lot of spunk to this nature inspired card. I just can’t get over how much I am in love with this card! Be sure to watch my video below to find out how I put this card together, and to see a fun time lapse of me prepping some materials for the free make and takes for the fundraising event.

Lovely As a Tree Classic Layered Card

Today I wanted to get back into a classic set from the Annual Catalog. Lovely As a Tree is one of Stampin’ Up!’s longest running and best selling stamp sets. This beautiful set features a variety of trees and small accent stamps, and can be used for just about any occasion!

I fussy cut the small pine cone and pine branch stamps to accent my layered sentiment, and used a glue dot to hold it together. Then tied some linen thread around the layered pieces for added interest.

To make the scene cohesive and look like one long stamp, I used my Stampin’ Write marker in Basic Gray to mimic the lines of the stamps and connect the hills under the trees. You can’t even tell it isn’t a connecting image!

For the little bird and the sentiment, I used the Sitting Here stamp set. I love using layers on my cards, and think that this double layer with the sentiment raised is a nice touch to add dimension to the card.
