How To: Card Fold with Rooted in Nature stamps

I'm sharing a card I made for my upcoming, Stampin' Up! Alaskan Cruise swap. Stampin' Up! hosts a swap between all of the demonstrators that earned the trip and they swap them for us.

I'm excited to be cruising with some of my favorite people from my association with Stampin' Up over these past 20 years. Its always so fun to see my friends that I don't get to see that often.

Anyway.. I designed a card made with the Rooted in Nature stamp set and dies. It has a unique little fold in the middle that opens up to insert a greeting.

I used as the card base, one piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" crumb cake cardstock. The designer paper is from the Natures Poem designer paper pack. This is one of the papers that is on special this month for the Buy 3 get one Free promotion. I cut these two pieces 1 x 4" and attached them to the top and bottom of the card.

The middle fold is a piece of shaded spruce cardstock cut at 8 x 3" and folded in half. Then attached to the middle of the card. I cut a piece of crumb cake and a piece of whisper white for the outside and inside of the fold at 3 3/4 x 2 3/4".

The tree was die-cut with the coordinating Natures Roots framelits. I inked the tree in mint macaron and wiped the ink off of the trunk with a paper towel and inked it with a crumb cake marker before I stamped it on whisper white cardstock.

A peek at the inside.

The verse was stamped in shaded spruce ink and I hand cut it apart and attached it in pieces.

I then added two mint macaron Faceted Dots to the bottom left corner to pull it all together.

I hope whoever receives my swap, likes it and is still suprised! lol.

You should give this easy fold a try. Its so simple and quite unique. The Rooted in Nature set works great with this layout and is perfect for a manly card too!

Until the next time...

Oh Baby- Its the Layered Alphabet once again!

So this time I've made an adorable baby card with the Layering Alphabet dies. I'm telling you, this set is great for any occasion at all!

I used the colors, petal pink, powder pink, blushing bride and flirty flamingo. All soft, pretty pinks for a baby girl.

Each color was cut at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches. The card is the same size in whisper white.

The "congrats" is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set and the little birdie and heart are from the Pick A Pennant stamp set. There are so many cute little stamps in both of these sets. Perfect to pair with the Layering Alphabet.

It really is my most favorite stamp set of all time! So many fun cards and scrapbook pages just waiting to be created! And its pretty simple too. I hope you'll give it a try. Check out the video below on how to use this Layering Alphabet die.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sneak Peek- Tropical Chic

Here's a sneak peek at one of the sets we will be using at my Card Class next week. The stamp set is called Tropical Chic and has coordinating thinlets dies that can be purchased as a bundle for a 10% discount. We will be making a card very similar to this one.

IMG_3126

I adore this tropical, breezy and beautiful stamp set. I used blushing bride, flirty flamingo and soft seafoam inks, as well as soft seafoam cardstock.

IMG_3131

There is a 3x3 square of the coordinating, Tropical Escape designer paper behind the leaf cut-out, which was also cut at 3x3 before die cutting. This is a very subtle pattern, however, the designer paper has so many gorgeous tropical images, that you'll love every one of them!

IMG_3132

I inked the flower with blushing bride ink and used a sponge dauber dipped in flirty flamingo to dab the middle of the flower, before I stamped it.

IMG_3129

I added a sequin to the flower using liquid multi-purpose glue. I pick up my sequins with a toothpick, dot the glue on the card and drop the sequin unto the glue.

IMG_3133

I like to stamp the inside as well- this leaf looks so pretty stamped in the same soft seafoam color as the cardstock.

IMG_3127

The twine is the new Silver and Petal Pink bakers twine. It matches this card perfectly. I used a strip of tear tape to hold the twine in place on the card.

IMG_3134

The soft colors and flowy nature of this card almost make me feel like I'm enjoying an tropical breeze right here in Pennsylvania!

IMG_3137

The more, the merrier!

I hope you'll check out this bundle, below- its definitely a favorite of mine and I know you'll love it too!

Until the next time...

There's Always Hope...

Its time for another Layering Alphabet card. I truly enjoy this stamp set and framelits bundle more and more each time I use it. You already know that this is my absolute favorite bundle in the new catalog and for good reason. Its so unique and so versitile!

I decided on the word hope, for this card. This brings back all the memories of pink cards of hope that I received a few years ago when I was sick and struggling.

I wanted to used many bright, happy shades of pink on this card as well as the beautiful Stitched Label Framelits- the heart to be specific. Love that cute little thing!

IMG_E3286

The colors I used are blushing bride, flirty flamingo, melon mambo and lovely lipstick. I also used some double sided Tear Tape to attach the pink metallic ribbon. I thought the ribbon was fitting, for a card like this.

IMG_E3287

All the colors of cardstock were cut at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 before die cutting. The whisper white card is the same size as well.

IMG_E3286

You don't have to be concerned about wasting the remainder of the cardstock, because it can always be used to make another card! This is the cardstock "negative" pieces that were left - and this is the extra card that I made with them.

IMG_3280

Oh my goodness... I loved being able to add a stitched heart in the middle of the "0". Plus, I added a strip of the gorgeous Garden Impressions designer series paper to the bottom of the card. (1 1/4") * Check out the designers series paper promotion going on this month. I have the special posted below.

IMG_3282

It makes me so happy that I can create two cards from one die cut letter.

IMG_E3284

I added a piece of lovely lipstick ribbon that I wrapped around the entire card and tied in a knot. The hearts are popped on with mini dimensionals. So sweet!

IMG_3291

I think this card would definitely cheer up anyone who really needs it.

IMG_E3288

Here they are- both made with the same pieces of 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 cardstock colors. I "hope" you like these sweet cards and "hope" you'll jump on the Layering and Lined Alphabet bandwagon someday soon. You won't regret it!

I have posted a Stampin Up video below, with instructions on using this bundle. It really is fairly simple and you'll catch on super quick, I promise!

Thanks for checking in!

Until the next time...
