The Nature’s Poem Suite is on Pages 142-144 in the new Stampin’ Up Catalog. It was available on Pre-Order, and the first one that grabbed my attention. Wood, trees and leaves are gorgeous, and appreciated by women and men. My husband is my “male card appreciation barometer,” and when showing him this card, he said, “I like that tree.”
I decided to feature this fabulous tree by stamping it with Gold Embossing Powder. I first stamped Versamark on Crumb Cake cardstock, and sprinkled it with gold powder. Then, I used the Heat Tool to melt the powder, making the tree come to life. The die for cutting the tree is in the Nature’s Roots Die Set (part of the bundle). I cut several, gluing them together for thickness.
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper is what I chose as a background for the tree. TGIF is having a challenge this week with “wood” as the inspiration. I’m all about “wood,” so this was an easy choice.
The Layering Squares Die Set enabled me to cut a frame for the tree. Again, I cut several for thickness, and backed it with a piece of Nature’s Poem DSP. This DSP is also the one that is layered on the Crumb Cake card base, serving as a border. The color is Black Berry Bliss, one I had heard much about from demonstrators who missed it since its retirement. It came out of retirement, and is once again available. Isn’t it a pretty purple?
Blackberry Bliss also shows up in four vertical strands of Nature’s Twine, attached with a strip of Tear Tape.
The Sentiment, “You Are Wonderful,” is in the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set, and stamped with Fresh Fig Ink.
