Today's project features one of my absolute favorite new stamp sets, Rooted In Nature. Did you know this set coordinates with one of our all-time most popular stamp sets (and the one that's been in the catalog the longest time!), Lovely As A Tree? If you already have Lovely As A Tree in your collection, you'll need to add Rooted In Nature and it's coordinating framelit set, Nature's Roots! I'm sure I'll be posting LOTS of ideas with this dynamic combo!
This stamp set is part of suite which also includes some gorgeous designer series paper called Nature's Poem. I used a couple of pieces to make up the background for this card I love all the beautiful, rich colors in this DSP...so, so pretty!
And what about the texture on the leaves!!?? Several of our framelit sets include pieces that emboss...
To emboss the leaves for this project, I cut the images from cardstock first, then layered the embossing image over the top and ran it through the Big Shot a second time. Love it! Be looking for the embossing images in the framelit sets!
To create the sentiment piece, I cut an oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits, then lightly stamped the wood texture piece over it in Crumb Cake, then stamped the sentiment over it in Tranquil Tide ink.
To finish it up, I added some Crumb Cake ribbon and a few of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.
Do you have a copy of the new catalog yet? If you'd like one, click "Contact Me" and let me know...if you live in the US, I'd love to send you a copy! (If you're outside the US, I'll be happy to find you a demonstrator near you!)
Until next time...happy stampin'!
