Thinking of you

Hello and welcome to today’s card, featuring the Nature’s Poem Suite, located on pages 142-144 in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. Notice anything different? The corners are rounded! Stampin’ Up! introduced the Detailed Trio Punch (page 211) and which includes a corner rounder! If you don’t have the Envelope Punch Board (or even if you do), this product is a must for adding details!

The card base is Soft Suede cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

I used these designs from the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, cut at 4” x 5 and 2” x 5 ¼”:

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the trunk image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Soft Suede ink, stamping off first. Then using the sentiment from this stamp set, heat emboss in White Embossing Powder. The image on the right is embossed first and stamped second. I like the result on the left!

I fussy cut this from the Whisper White cardstock and roughed up the edges with the edge of my scissors:

I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the edges of the card base and the base layer DSP and then adhered the layers to the card base:

I cut a piece of the Burlap Ribbon, adhered that across, and then cut a piece of Nature’s Twine in Grapefruit Grove, working the strands apart on the ends:

You can use dimensionals to keep the twine in place:

The sentiment is placed on top of the dimensionals, I used one of the leaves from the Leaves Trinkets, tying a doubled piece of Linen Thread in a knot, and used a glue dot to adhere:

The inside sentiment is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamped in Cajun Craze ink, and the leaves from the stamp set are stamped in Tranquil Tide and Cajun Craze inks:

This a great quick and easy card, with just a few added details, that would be great to send to someone! Do you have anyone in mind you’d make and send this to?

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
