Rooted in Nature - Stampin' Up!

My sincere apologies to the hot weather lovers as I say - oh my gosh this chilly June weather is glorious!!  After those few days of heat & humidity, I thought my gardening would never be finished (and it's not yet LOL), but it's getting close!  Just a few more chilly days and I'll be set. 😊

Enough with the weather - let's talk cards!  Woot!  So, every Tuesday, barring any appointments, I go live on my Facebook Group Lolly & Sand, where I chat, do a giveaway draw, make cards, goof up a bit, and definitely have fun!  Today was no different!  I couldn't stamp straight.  Seriously, although I managed to get it right on my 'last try'.  I do think it's okay to goof up, we're all human (right?) 😉

I made 3 cards during the video, with the first being the easiest to make - what I like to call Sweet & Simple cards.  You know me, and how much I love Whisper White, so I chose it for the base & layer. The stamp set I used is called Rooted in Nature - sure to be a best seller!  Do the ink colours look familiar?  Mint Macaron & Blackberry Bliss are back- three cheers!!



I randomly stamped the large leaves first, then followed up with the small leaves.  The detail in these stamps is outstanding!


Just before finishing the card, I added Wink of Stella to the sentiment, for a wee bit of sparkle. It looks white in the photo, but I assure you it's sparkly.  I then cut the 'flag' end of this layer with my Banner Triple Punch and popped it up using dimensionals.




Here's the finished card.  What do you think?  Thumbs up?




The second card uses the same stamp set, Rooted in Nature, and a little die cutting.  Again, super easy.  For this card I used the same base & layer as the first card, plus just one ink colour - Tranquil Tide.  I used the small leaf image, and stamped it as though the leaves were falling.  To achieve the illusion, simply stamp some of the images partly off the paper.  



What a great sentiment.  It suits this card perfectly!  


To finish this card I stamped then die cut the leaf using my Rooted in Nature dies.  If you decide you want both the stamp set & dies, purchase them as a bundle and save 10%.  


Now, on to the last card.  Again white on white and using the Rooted in Nature bundle.  I cased this card from Mikaela Titheridge, and changed up the colours & sentiment.


I ran my Whisper White layer through the Big Shot several times, using the embossing die in the Rooted in Nature bundle.  


I then stamped the tree image twice onto Whisper White cardstock, using Smoky Slate ink, thenem die cut both, again using a die from the Rooted in Nature bundle.   One tree was then glued onto the layer, and for the other tree, I sniped off the trunk, and popped up the top of the tree using dimensionals.  Notice the trees are slightly offset.


The combination of Smoky Slate & Granny Apple Green makes me happy!  Soooo, I stamped the sentiment, from the Rooted in Nature bundle, the using my snips, cut them apart.  This time I used the mini dimensionals, which I cut in half and placed on the back of each section of the sentiment.

I wonder if you can guess which card is my favourite.  Hmmm.... 😊
