Hey there friends! Today I wanted to share with you a card I created using Stampin’ Up!’s Rooted in Nature stamp set.
And I have a confession when it comes to this card…
This is my FIRST time using the Rooted in Nature stamp set to create a card even though I’ve owned the stamp set for 3 years!
Kinda crazy eh?
The thing is, I have a habit of falling in love with and “acquiring” stamp sets faster than I can use them sometimes LOL
Oh well, what’s a girl to do right?
Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature | “Thinking of You” Card
Here is a close-up of the card. I have put together step-by-step written instructions on how to make this card below.
The only thing that the instructions don’t include is how I layered all the different elements. That is kinda hard to describe as there are so many of them.
Instead, you can use the picture as a reference for placement.
Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature | “Thinking of You” Card Step-by-Step Tutorial
Here is how I made this card:
Step 1. Stamp the “thinking of you” greeting onto a scrap of Crumb Cake CS using Early Espresso Classic ink. Fussy cut the greeting – cutting it apart into two sections: “thinking” and “of you.”
Step 2. Ink up the round wood textured stamp in Cinnamon Cider Classic ink. Add some Early Espresso Classic ink around the edges of the stamp using a sponge dauber. Stamp the image onto a piece of Whisper White CS. Fussy cut it out.
Step 3. Stamp one large leaf and one small leaf onto a piece of Whisper White CS in Crushed Curry Classic ink. Sponge some Daffodil Delight ink onto the entire surface of the stamped image with a sponge dauber. Fussy cut the leaves and then sponge some Crushed Curry ink along the edges using a sponge dauber.
Step 4. Create a large red leaf in the same way as you created the yellow leaves. This time stamp the leaf in Cherry Cobbler ink, sponge it with Real Red ink, and add Cherry Cobbler to the edges after it’s been fussy cut.
Step 5. Create two small green leaves in the same way as you created the leaves above. This time use Granny Apply Green to stamp the image and to add color. Sponge Cinnamon Cider along the edges after it’s been fussy cut.
Step 6. Stamp the tri-leaf image twice in Early Espresso Classic ink, onto a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock. Die cut both stamped images using the coordinating die from the Nature’s Roots die set.
Step 7. Punch three sprigs out of Brushed Copped Metallic cardstock using the sprig punch. Cut two of the sprigs in half.
Step 8. Select a few different leaf accents from the Forever Gold Laser Cut DSP. Set aside.
Step 9. Center and stick a 3 ⅞” x 5 ⅛” piece of patterned paper from the World of Good DSP collection onto a 4″ x 5 ¼” piece of Early Espresso CS. Center and stick this onto the front of a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” Crumb Cake notecard.
Step 10. Layer the stamped and die cut elements in the bottom right of the patterned paper panel, using the circular wood grained element as reference to help you with placement. I stuck all the elements down using liquid glue.
Step 11. Center and stick the circular woodgrain element in the bottom right corner of the card – over top of the foliage – using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Step 12. Center and stick the greeting onto the circular woodgrain piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Step 13. Embellish your card with a few champagne rhinestones. You’re done!
