SU Rooted In Nature Card

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I created for the latest Colour INKspiration Challenge. The colour combination for this challenge is: Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla and Pear Pizzazz. When I first thought about these colours Autumn sprang to mind so I decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Stamp Set. However, I didn’t want the really bold look of Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie for this particular card. What to do?! The answer? Sponge Daubers (obviously)!

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I have then cut a (14.4 x 5 cm) strip of Whisper White cardstock and embossed it using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.

I used Sponge Daubers to ink up the leaf stamp such that the images look as if the leaves are changing colour (as they do in Autumn). The image is stamped repeatedly using different combinations of Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz. These are cut out using the coordinating Nature’s Roots Dies and adhered to the back of the embossed strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is produced using the same technique and cut out using one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Two leaves are die cut from Very Vanilla cardstock and embossed using the Nature’s Roots Dies. These are adhered to the back of the sentiment piece and the whole piece adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finally I have coloured some Basic Pearl Jewels using the Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends and adhered them around the sentiment.

What do you think?
