Rooted In Nature “You Are Wonderful” Card
Did you know that the longest running Stampin’ Up! stamp set is the classic Lovely As A Tree set? The brand new “Rooted In Nature” stamp set and “Nature’s Roots” Framelits are beautiful compliments to this versatile, best-selling set! I predict that this new bundle will be an instant classic, as well!
This a large bundle—16 fantastic images with 12 coordinating dies! The lovely trees, leaves, and sentiments will be the foundation for all kinds of cards, from thinking of you to thank you, birthday to sympathy, even Christmas cards…the elements combine to create an outdoorsy, natural look. They’ll be fun to use for a variety of techniques, too! This is a must-have for your new catalog Wish List!
Background Basics—Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper pack has gorgeous leafy patterns that make excellent backgrounds for the Rooted In Nature elements. I adhered a 4″ x 5-1/4″ panel of the Tranquil Tide linen and leaf pattern to a Crumb Cake card base. Can I just say that this color combination is AMAZING! Love it!
Wonderful Wood—The base of this collage focal point starts by stamping the dissected tree trunk image in Soft Suede ink onto Whisper White cardstock cut to 3″ x 4.” I stamped two leaves of different sizes onto a scrap of Mint Macaron and the new Mango melody in their coordinating ink colors. I used the Big Shot to cut those leaf shapes out. I used a 1″ strip of a coordinating DSP in the striped pattern and punched a banner end to it with the Banner Triple Punch.
Leaf Loveliness— One special thing about this bundle is the Coordinating Embossing Dies. Yes, you heard me right — embossing dies. You can cut the leaf shapes out and then run through again to create beautiful textured leaf patterns ON the leaves.
Finishing Touches—I stamped the Rooted In Nature sentiment in Tranquil ink onto a 3-1/2″ x 1″ piece of Whisper White cardstock and then popped it up with Dimensionals. I adorned the sentiment with a 1/4″ Copper Trim bow attached with a Glue Dot, then added a couple of buttons from the True Gentleman’s buttons set. Lastly, I added a couple of Mint Macaron Faceted Dots — you will LOVE these!
Don’t forget the Retiring Items and the Upcoming Safari! I can’t wait!
