Stampin’ Up! Rooted in Nature on Wood for Stamp Ink Paper #153

Good morning, all!  It’s Tuesday so that means it’s time for a new Stamp Ink Paper Challenge for you to play along with!  And it’s a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge – one of my favorite kinds!

For mine, I pulled out the Rooted in Nature Bundle, along with some pretty Nature’s Poem and Wood Textures DSP.  Take a look-see:

Here’s the SIP #153 challenge badge for you – you can see I went down the left side.  I do hope you’ll join us this week!

I borrowed some layout help from this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

I started with a Cajun Craze paper from the Nature’s Poem DSP, matted on Petal Pink for the card front.

Next up, I cut three strips of Wood Textures DSP, matted them on Petal Pink, and adhered them on the card front.  As you can see, I turned the sketch!

I cut myself some Rooted in Nature trees.  I used my Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers to color the single (tall) tree stamp directly, then stamped the trees on Mossy Meadow card stock.  I did that three times and cut them with the matching Nature’s Root die.  I also stamped the double-tree image twice in Mossy Meadow and cut them as well.

I heat embossed the Rooted in Nature sentiment in Copper on Vellum card stock and cut it out with a Stitched Shapes Framelits oval die.

Using Liquid Glue, I adhered a few of the trees to the card front – then used Glue Dots behind the embossed letters to adhere the Vellum sentiment.  I tucked the edge of the oval between two of the trees – can you see that?

I added the final single-tree with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  To finish off, I tied a little bow from 1/4″ Copper Trim and adhered it and a couple of copper Leaves Trinkets to the card front with Glue Dots.

On the inside, I added some leaves from Rooted in Nature in Cajun Craze and Petal Pink to a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped each leaf twice without re-inking.

I matted the panel on Petal Pink and into my Mossy Meadow card base with Liquid Glue, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more Rooted in Nature leaves in Cajun Craze and Petal Pink on the front…

…and more Nature’s Poem DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  I do so love these beautiful trees in the Rooted in Nature stamp set and, being able to cut them out so easily with the Nature’s Roots Framelits is just awesome!  Hope you like!

Finn Fan Fix

Momma has a new toy!

Well.  It’s actually a TOOL.  But it’s definitely a COOL TOOL!

We’ve had a 4-wheeler for years now – you can hardly have any size acreage without one – but the old one had started….well – NOT starting!  It had become a total PITA!

So – now we have a new one.  It’s an old new one – but it might as well be new.

And guess what!?  It starts – with just the push button (no pulling a rope!) every time! Whoo-hoo!

Also – it looks really cool and is BIG!

Finn approves and has given it Four Paws!  Out of four…so…it’s a good thing!

  1. You are wonderful! So is your card, new toy tool and your approving Man. Not to leave Wayne out…I’m sure he feels the same way as I!

    • stampsnlingers

      Thanks so much, Karen – you’re very sweet! 🙂

  2. Like? I love it! Right up my alley. A couple of questions though…The soft suede on the trees is difficult to see. Is it the trunks? And, what made you pair petal pink with the rest of the colors?? I like it, but would never have thought to do it. Great card! And, yes, I noticed that you had tucked the edge of the oval between the trees. Brilliant.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes – the Soft Suede is on the trunks of the trees. And – I have no idea what made me think to use the pink – maybe the color coordination on the Nature’s Poem DSP? I like how it turned out (even if it was pure luck!). Thanks much, Julie! 🙂

  3. Fantastic card Mary! Love the die cut trees and layers, perfect colors too! So has Finn driven the new toy…oh, I mean tool yet??? 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      Well – it’s got a thumb-activated throttle, so…it may be a minute. But – that’s the only thing holding him back! Thanks so much, Amy! 🙂

  4. Congratulations on the new toy! I mean TOOL! The card is such an inspiration!! I forget that I’m allowed to cut my paper in pieces. Will use this idea today!

    • stampsnlingers

      CUT THAT PAPER!! 😉 Thanks so much, Sharon!

  5. Susan K

    I would never have thought to use pink with wood and trees but it really makes it pop and adds perfectly to it! Great card. Love your new toy-tool. Can’t wait to see Finn riding on it!

    • stampsnlingers

      Well – we’ve talked about putting a pad on the back – it’s plenty big enough – and I think he’d have a ball! Thanks so much, Susan – I loved how the pink popped with the wood! 🙂

  6. mcbride delphia

    Love the card I ditto the above comments. Just wondering can I come live at your house?

    • stampsnlingers

      LOL – if you could see it now you rescind the question!! Shares all over the place – me trying to pack. Chaos! Thanks, Kay! 🙂

  7. Marlene

    What a wonderful card! I love it! It looks like a forest. I like the trees stamped w/ Mossy Meadow on the Mossy Meadow cs. I also really enjoy hearing about Finn & his antics. Where does he ride on the new tool?

    • stampsnlingers

      My husband has rigged a cushion for him – not sure if he’s “taken” to it or not. I figure it’s just a matter of time – he’s too smart and likes to ride too much to not figure it out! Thanks so much, Marlene! 🙂
