Morning, y’all! As you wake for the weekend, I’ll be packing for my return to CA. Not enough words to tell you how much I don’t want to go back. Serious.
I made today’s card for y’all before I left CA and I used the Enjoy Life and Rooted in Nature stamp sets on some pretty Nature’s Poem DSP. Take a look-see:
And here’s what inspired the card.
Yes – that was in the bathroom in my hotel room (it’ll probably be very similar to the one I check into tonight!). I just thought it was so pretty – and the print reminded me of the Nature’s Poem DSP.
I started with a piece of said DSP and, across the bottom, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I added several of the grasses image from Enjoy Life. Then I used my Stamparatus to add the sentiment.
I adhered the panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat and then wrapped some Grapefruit Grove Nature’s Twine around twice, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.
With another Glue Dot, I added a copper Leaves Trinket. I tied a little bow and adhered it over the trinket – and the card front was done!
On the inside, I stamped the leaves image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set stamped-off-twice Blackberry Bliss and Grapefruit Grove on a Whisper White panel. I added another sentiment from Enjoy Life in Tuxedo Black.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat and into my Grapefruit Grove card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.
On the front of my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I added more stamped-off-twice Blackberry Bliss and Grapefruit Grove leaves from the Rooted in Nature stamp set…
…and I added more of the Nature’s Poem DSP to the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Who knew that a mass-produced picture in a hotel bathroom could be the inspiration for a card?! Just shows ta go ya – ideas are everywhere! And, when you have wonderful sets like the Enjoy Life stamp set and the Nature’s Poem suite to let you express your creativity then you’ve pretty much got it made in the shade! Hope you like!
