You Are Wonderful
Here’s another Rooted in Nature card for you. As you can probably tell, I love this bundle. It’s perfect for so many occasions, and you can use it for anyone. The cardstock and Designer Series Paper on this were left over from one of the Make & Takes from my Open House last weekend. I decided to use the “card guts,” as Diana Gibbs calls them, to create something different than the Open House card.
This is a very simple card. I die-cut the tree from Whisper White Cardstock, then used the negative for a template in my Stamparatus. After inserting the tree stamp into the template, I closed the plate to adhere the stamp, then placed the die-cut into the template.
I colored the tree with Tranquil Tide and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers. Funny thing about those red rubber stamps. They’re great if you want to use Stampin’ Write Markers to ink them up, but they’re a little more finicky than photopolymer stamps when you use them in a template. Obviously, mine is a little off, and it bugs me. Still, most people who aren’t obsessive crafters wouldn’t notice unless I pointed it out. If you noticed, you now know you’re an obsessive crafter. You’re either a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, or you should be one! Give me a call. 😉
I stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede Classic Ink on Whisper White, then backed it with a piece of Tranquil Tide Cardstock. I added a few leaves in Soft Seafoam along the edge of a Soft Seafoam layer (I stamped off one time for each set of leaves), then adhered the cardstock to a Mint Macaron card base.
Since the card at the open house used the Sea of Textures Stamp Set, the Designer Series Paper (DSP) is two designs from the Tranquil Textures DSP. I adhered the tree with Stampin’ Dimensionals, because I wanted it to pop a little.
After layering the sentiment and the Tranquil Tide Cardstock layers, I tied a bit of Linen Thread around it and added one of the Leaves Trinkets embellishments to the sentiment layers. I know people think, “Wow, those Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators spend a lot of money on stuff! They have everything!” Well, that would be true. But I haven’t bought the Leaves Trinkets yet. I tend to hoard ribbon, DSP, and embellishments – although I’m getting better! But the Leaves Trinkets were a product we used on Make & Takes at OnStage in April. At the end of OnStage events, Stampin’ Up! has been letting us pass the box of supplies around, and we get to choose something from the box. It keeps going around until everything is gone. How awesome is that? One of my choices was the package of trinkets (and there were only five people at our table, so I had almost a complete package!).
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
Pretty card and a great use of card guts!
