Happy Hawwmp Day, y’all! I’m going to be pretty darned glad when this week is over. It’s sorta sucked so far!
And – that suck-age has sure sapped my creative mojo today. It took forever for inspiration to hit. I borrowed some ideas from the wonderful samples for the Rooted in Nature stamp set and other products in the new Nature’s Poem Suite. You’ll all be able to order these goodies from the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog in June! For now – take a look-see:
The layout for this one is from the current Fusion Challenge.
And I made this for my neighbor who drove madly to our rescue on Tuesday morning!
I started with some of the pretty (but not too “precious”) paper from the Nature’s Poem DSP (1 June) and matted it on Tranquil Tide for the card front.
The middle panel is Copper Foil. First, using the three leaf embossing dies in the Nature’s Roots Framelits, I embossed a bigger-than-I-needed panel – then I cut it down to size and matted it on Tranquil Tide.
I ran a strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the Copper Foil panel and used it to adhere a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon – wrapping it around and securing it in the back. On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the large oak image from Rooted in Nature in Tranquil Tide, then I cut it with the largest circle Stitched Shapes Framelits die.
On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped the three-leaf image from Rooted in Nature in new Grapefruit Grove ink (avail 1 June) – I stamped it twice without re-inking. Then I cut them with their matching die from the Nature’s Roots Framelits.
I adhered some of the leaves to the card front with Liquid Glue, then I popped the stamped Stitched Shapes circle on with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added the final leaf image to the Whisper White circle with Liquid Glue.
For the sentiment, I stamped both sentiments (from the Rooted in Nature set) in Early Espresso on a strip of Crumb Cake, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line them up. I snipped the ends and then sort of “rumpled” the strip to distress it a bit. It’s adhered with Liquid Glue.
To finish off the card front, I added a True Gentleman Button and a little bow of Linen Thread with Glue Dots.
On the inside, I used two of the leaf stamps from Rooted in Nature to stamp up the side of a Whisper White panel. I used Grapefruit Grove and Tranquil Tide – stamped off twice before stamping the panel.
I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat and into my Thick Whisper White card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Rooted in Nature leaves up the side…
…and I gave the envelope flap some more of the Nature’s Poem DSP.
Et Voila! I know its got a little pinkish-ness and a bow, but…I think it’s organic enough to be okay for my friend. I love this new Rooted in Nature bundle – being able to cut out all the images with the Nature’s Roots Framelits is awesome! Go ahead – just write it on your gotta-have-it list so you’ll be ready come 1 June! Or…you could always join the team first thing in May and pick this bundle for your Starter Kit!
Just sayin’! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix
Today is a better day in Finn-landia.
He’s still at the vet – today’s his surgery to flush and clean his sinuses and then stitch him up.
He’ll always have a hole in his head.
So if he’s acting like a goof, I can say “You’re acting like you’ve got a hole in your head.”
And he’ll roll his eyes and point to his noggin like…”uhm…hello!!?”
I let him spend the night there – he’s sleeping good (and I needed a little more sleep before I’m doing nurse duty) and is comfortable.
I wanted to thank you all for the wonderful comments and prayers and well-wishes. I was gobsmacked by the love for my little Man.
So – all that made me decide to christen y’all as an Official Finn Fan Club.
And you’ve got a sign and everything! 🙂
The lighted sign – that makes it “official”.
Now y’all go to work on your secret handshake!
