Thinking of you with Rooted in Nature

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a great card featuring the Nature’s Poem Suite! This really is a perfect greeting for just about any occasion. I am happy to say that except for the Designer Series Paper and the cardstock pack, this suite is carrying over to the new catalog! This really is beautiful and versatile designer series paper and I will be sad to see it go at the end of this catalog! 

One of my favorite things to do with the tree trunk from the stamp set is to color it with daubers and then fussy cut it out. I first use a sponge dauber with Crumb Cake ink and color it all over, I then use another sponge dauber with Soft Suede ink around the outside of the tree trunk, and finally use my snips to cut out. After this, I use the sponge dauber with Soft Suede ink and go around the edge, which not only blends into the stamped image, but hides any mistakes you made. For today’s card, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed White Embossing Powder:

Additionally for the front of the card, you will need this design from the DSP cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, a 1” x 4” piece of Copper Foil Sheet embossed with the Climbing Vine TIEF, one of the copper Leaves Trinkets, and I created this little “knot” with the Nature’s Twine by “folding” the twine over about three times, tied the end piece around the middle into a knot, cut the end piece apart, and then then just used my finger tips to fray the ends:

To assemble the card front, I first adhered the embossed Copper Foil Sheet, adhered the sentiment piece with dimensionals, adhered the knotted twine and the trinket with glue dots:

This piece is then adhered to a 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, Tranquil Tide cardstock card base:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and then I adhered a ¾” x 4” piece of the DSP along the side. Typically, when you cut DSP you will have a 1 ½” x 4” piece left over and I will cut that in half so I have two pieces to use for the inside of my card:

Wasn’t this a fun and easy card to make? I chose to leave the inside blank, then this way I can use it for any reason, just have to stamp the sentiment! As I am writing, the DSP and cardstock pack are still available from my online store, but this will be only while supplies last since they are on the retirement list. The stamp set, dies, twine, and trinkets are carrying over into the new catalog, however, the discounted bundle for the stamp and dies are not.

Be strong

Hello and welcome to today’s card, featuring the Nature’s Poem Suite, located on pages 142-144 in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. This is a great card that is quick and simple to make AND uses that leftover Designer Series Paper! I have some 3” x 3” squares left over from the card swap I participated in, so this is what I started with to create this card. If you have multiple cards that you need to make, cutting your Designer Series Paper into smaller pieces will also make it go farther!

The card base is Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. The card front is embossed using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder:

From the Nature’s Twine, I used a piece of Crumb Cake and Blackberry Bliss twine, which I tied in a knot and frayed the ends:

fullsizeoutput_1f9a

I had this piece of designer series paper from Nature’s Poem DSP, 3” x 3”. Stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I used Soft Suede and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers to color the tree image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set and cut out with the coordinating framelit from the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies:

fullsizeoutput_1f9d

The tree is adhered to the DSP and then adhered to the card base with dimensionals. I placed some of the dimensionals around the twine to keep that in place:

The sentiment from this stamp set is stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock in Blackberry Bliss ink and then cut out:

fullsizeoutput_1fa3

The sentiments are adhered on the card front with Mini Dimensionals:

fullsizeoutput_1fa6

The inside sentiment is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink and the leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede inks, stamping off on a scrap piece of paper first:

Wasn’t that quick and easy?? Not sure if there is enough twine to make 11 cards, but maybe I should’ve made this for my card swap! lol

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”:

fullsizeoutput_1f6d

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

fullsizeoutput_1f70

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:

fullsizeoutput_1f79

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:

fullsizeoutput_1f82fullsizeoutput_1f85

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:

fullsizeoutput_1f8e

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:

fullsizeoutput_1f91fullsizeoutput_1f94

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?

Then I used Tranquil Tide cardstock to cut out the 3rdlargest oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits and to emboss and cut the leaf from the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies.
