More Love for Rooted in Nature!

Sometimes I refer to myself at Little Miss Procrastinator.  True.   😊  My workshop last Thursday was at 6:30 pm, and I finished prepping the last 2 of 4 cards at 3 pm.  Call me crazy! Thankfully, I had everything packed up and ready to go in loads of time, and the workshop went very well.

Today, I have 2 of the cards we made at the workshop to share with you!  The Rooted in Nature bundle, may I say, is so versatile, and that's what we all want from our stamps & supplies, right?!

We started with a Petal Pink base, then a Whisper White layer was added.  The tree was stamped in Gray Granite then die cut using the Nature's Root Framelits.  Next we stamped the sentiment, from Detailed with Love, in Calypso Coral, and die cut it using one of the dies from Stitched Labels Framelits.  Before adhering the sentiment layer to the card, we added Nature's Twine in Grapefuit Grove, and then added mini dimensionals, and a bow.
The patterned papers are both from Nature's Poem DSP.  There are so many gorgeous patterns in that pack of paper!

For the inside of the card, we stamped the large leaf stamp from Rooted in Nature into Gray Granite, and stamped off once onto our grid paper, then onto the Whisper White layer.  Our 'Best Wishes' sentiment is from Stitched all Around.  We stamped it in Calypso Coral.
I think this was my favourite card of the workshop!

But wait!  I promised 2 cards, so here's the next....

I cased this card from Leena Girsa, my upline, and just changed up the colours a bit.
The base & layer are Blackberry Bliss and may I say a huge 'Thank You' to Stampin' Up! for bringing this colour back - it's so rich and lucious!  Before adhering the layer, we ran it through the Big Shot, in the Woodland embossing folder.
The Nature's Poem DSP was cut at 3 1/2 x 4".   Next, we adhered a 5 1/2" piece of Blackberry Bliss Nature's Twin, using glue dots placed on the back of the DSP, 
It's a little hard to see, but there is a piece of Wood Textures DSP die cut by one of the of Layering Circles Dies. That piece was adhered to the card under the Nature's Twine.
The leaves are in Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove and Copper Foil, and all were embossed then die cut with the Nature's Roots Framelits, then adhered using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
We stamped a couple of leaves onto Whisper White cardstock, stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss, then cut with the Everyday Label punch.  The finishing touches are a bow made with Linen Thread and a Copper Leaves Trinket, both adhered using glue dots.

I'm certain I had the ladies stamp a leaf image, however I changed it up a bit and used the tree rings image from Rooted in Nature & Grapefruit Grove ink, stamped off once.  Last step before adhering the layer was to stamp the sentiment from Rooted in Nature, in Blackberry Bliss.

Wow...when I read what I wrote, it sounds like a lot, however this was a quick and easy card to make!
