You are Wonderful!

The Natures Poem Designer Series Paper is beautiful!  I love one particular paper because of the softness of the leaves.  The paper looks like faded burlap with a soft twig and leaf pattern on top!  It is Wonderful!  This paper was my inspiration for today’s The Creative Way card!

The Creative Way – A Product Feature

Rooted In Nature Stamp Set is available in a Bundle with the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies. (Available June 2)  Theses dies cut the trees and leaves in the set. There are also dies that make an embossed leaf. These embossed leaves are beautiful!  They add settle texture to your cards.

The Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper is full of Natured inspired patterns! This paper can take a wide range of cards from Masculine to soft and sweet!

I really like how soft some of the Nature’s Poem patterns are!  Yet there are some bold patterns that compliment the softness of the leaves.  Like I said above, I particularly love this soft Mint Macaroon leafy twig pattern on top of the soft burlap pattern! It is just beautiful!

You are Wonderful

  • The first step was to use the textured leaf dies.  This is how I did that.  The first thing was to ink up the embossing die.  Then gently laying it onto whisper white. Finally embossing using the Big Shot
  • You can see on my leaves where ink was in spaces besides the vanes. But, I decided to use them anyway.  1. It is a handmade card, this adds to that feel. And 2. I think this makes it look more like nature. Imperfections are beautiful in Nature.
  • The You are Wonderful is layered using the Stitched Shapes Dies and the Layering Ovals Dies

I really love all the looks you can create from the leaves in the Rooted In Nature stamp set and the Nature’s Roots Dies!

The Creative Way

I am super excited today to start a new blog feature! The Creative Way!

The Creative Way  –  A Product Feature

The idea is to select one Stampin’ Up! product, bundle of products, or suite of products for a month-long creative journey.  The Feature will be every Monday and Friday with a few other days sprinkled in.  That means you will get to see at least 8 projects made from the same product during the month!!!!  The paper projects will feature different color combinations, techniques, and card designs  giving you a variety of ways to use one stamp set or other product.

 For May I have selected one of my favorite Stamp Sets from the up coming Annual Catalog, Rooted In Nature!  It is part of the Nature’s Poem Suite of products.  This suite is Beautiful!!!

Rooted In Nature

Rooted in Nature Stamp Set is available as a wood mount or clear mount set!  I personally love wood mount stamps.  I’m kinda old school that way 😉  It is also available as a Bundle with the coordinating dies. The bundle gives you a 10% savings.  Yeppie!!!

Nature

Rooted In Nature Bundle

One thing you might not know about Rooted In Nature is it was designed to coordinate with the ever so popular set Lovely As A Tree! So, you know at some point over the next month I will be using them together!!!

Nature’s Poem

The Designer Series Paper is Nature’s Poem.  This paper is Gorgeous!!! The patterns have a very earthy feel to them!  Then there are two of leaves that remind me of rubbings but even better!!!  And one pattern reminds me of flower prints or leaf prints.  The colors in the Nature’s Poem Paper is Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Grapefruit Grove, Mint Macaroon, Petal Pink, Rich Razleberry, Soft Suede (my favorite brown), Tranquil Tide, and Whisper White.

Also, in the Nature’s Poem Suite is twine, leaves trinkets, and a coordinating cardstock pack (petal pink, tranquil tide, and soft suede)

Now, that I have shown you the products that I will be using for May’s The Creative Way projects….let’s get on with why you are here! That’s a card of course!

The Creative Way

  • I love the simple beauty of this stamp set!!  Especially, the leaves in the set!!!!
  • The colors are Grapefruit Grove, Always Artichoke, and Whisper White. I used Always Artichoke (retiring) But, this card would be just as lovely with the returning Mossy Meadow
  • What better of a sentiment can you get than ….Be Strong, Be Happy, Be You! So perfect

Each of your comments makes me smile! Please, comment HERE.

For all the nature lovers out there

Stampin’ Up! has a new stamp set that celebrates the beauty of the natural world. Rooted In Nature is part of a Suite of products called Nature’s Poem in the upcoming Annual Catalog.  I have enjoyed using it so much that I decided to feature it in the First of a new blog series, The Creative Way- A Product Feature. (More in a bit)

Rooted In Nature Bundle

Rooted In Nature Bundle is full of wonderfulness! a leaf, trees, a wood section, and great sentiments!

Not to mention all the dies!  Three of the dies are embossing dies!  The ones in the middle emboss the leaf image on any project!

The coordinating Designer Series Paper,  Natures Poem is full of natural patterns and earthy tones.

This paper is beautiful!! And pairs perfectly with the Rooted In Nature Bundle.  I particularly love the two leaf papers that have the soft leaf print look! Two of the stamps give a similar leaf look!!

Nature

  •  Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, and Night Of Navy is one of my go to color combinations for Nature inspired cards.  It becomes even more classic when you add Copper to it!
  • The tree was stamped in Always Artichoke on Very Vanilla then die cut with coordinating die cut
  • The sentiment was stamped then cut apart
  • The final touch was to add some copper thread

Each of your comments makes me smile! Please, comment HERE.

Always Artichoke is going away next month! It is one of the core colors that is retiring!  So, be sure to scoop up this wonderful color now!


The Creative Way

The Creative Way- A Product Feature will officially start on Friday!  I am super excited about sharing this creative journey with you guys!  The idea is to feature one product, bundle, or suite for a month!  Stay Tune!!
