Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature Masculine/Fall card

Hello Creative Friends!

Today I am getting ready to head to sunny Orlando, Florida for the awesome Stampin’ Up! Convention!!  It is now referred to as OnStage and I am hoping I will have lots of new goodies to share with you while I am there!! Before I go, I wanted to share a quick and easy fall/masculine card with you. I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set and showcased many of the gorgeous green colors we have available.

I am calling this a masculine card, but really I think it could be given to anyone.  I also don’t think it is only a fall card either!  It could easily be made more fall looking by changing up the colors.  The card base color is Mossy Meadow.  I layered the this with some paper from the Wood Textures 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper pack.  I then chose to stamp various leaves from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in the following colors:  Mossy Meadow, Garden Green, Old Olive, Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green.  When I saw how many beautiful green colors we have available I knew I wanted to show them off together!  I cut out each leaf image with a circle that I though fit best from my Layering Circles Framelit Dies and some of my circle punches.  I also cut a corresponding card stock color to the ink I used with the next biggest circles.  I then layered them out in a group on the card.  I added some Linen Thread twine behind all the circles and adhered them with dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set and was punch out with the classic label punch.  I also cut out a Meadow Layer using the classic label punch.  I cut it in half so I could add a layer to each end of the point.  This makes it look like it has a full layer!

That is all there is to this card!  You could make this one really quick of you need a card in a hurry.

Please check back here soon for updates regarding some of the goodies I get to see at Onstage.  I would recommend checking on my Facebook and Instagram pages for the most up to date information as I won’t always be able to post things to the blog.

Happy Crafting!

The Stampin’ Up! New Catalog Is Here!!

Hooray!

It is new catalog day!  That’s right, today is the day you can order any of the new items you love in the new catalog.  If you don’t have one of these yet then please let me know. I can get one sent to you! In honor of the new catalog I have a pretty card to share with you that highlights one of my favorite new stamp sets.

This card was made using the Rooted In Nature stamp set and the Nature’s Roots Framelits.  It is a double stamp set and can be used for so many occasions. The colors used were the new Balmy Blue, the new Soft Sea Foam and the returning Mint Macaron.  Don’t these colors look simply divine together?  I added a little clear Wink of Stella on the leaves to give it some sparkle and I used the new Natures Twine in Mint Macaron to create an added focal point behind the leaves.  I finished things off by adding some of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to the card.

If you haven’t seen all the wonderful new items in the catalog then at least check out this fun video so you can get a taste of the fabulous new goodies available:
