Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Karen Robinson | Rooted In Nature Note Cards
In my previous post I farewelled some of the products that will soon be retiring (June 3, 2019), but today I’ll be using some of the products carrying over to the *new* 2019-20 Annual Catalogue, Rooted In Nature and Colorful Seasons.
Although the Rooted In Nature Bundle was one of my favourite bundles from last year I haven’t used it as much as I’ve wanted to, so I’m thrilled that it will be staying for another year 🙂
Please note: Although Rooted In Nature & the coordinating Nature’s Roots dies will be in the new catalogue, they won’t be available as a cost saving bundle (save 10%). Bundles never carry over from catalogues, so if you’d like to save a little extra make sure to pick up any must-haves before June 4.
I decided to keep my project very simple today and create a few all occasions note cards to top up my stash. I used two of the leaves from Rooted In Nature and chose five different colour combinations for each of the cards I created.
For each card I took a quarter sheet of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the leaves randomly, alternating the colours. The only rules I tried to follow were to stamp in threes in a triangle shape and alternating the direction of the stamps.
I did go back at the end to fill in any gaps and add a little more of whatever colour it seemed to need. I then cut a panel from each piece using a die from my stash added a heat embossed sentiment from Colorful Seasons and adhered it to a standard Thick Whisper White C6 card base.
I’ll add an individual phot of each card and the colours I used if you’d like to try this yourself 🙂
Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana, Mint Macaron, Pool Party & Soft Sea Foam
Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Pumpkin Pie & So Saffron
Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather & Petal Pink
Crumb Cake, Grey Granite, Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate & Soft Suede
I’ve left the inside of these cards blank for the moment and decided to leave off any bling as well – very unlike me 😉 but this makes them really versatile and nice and flat for posting 🙂
I really like all the colour combinations I tried, except the pink/purple one, I don’t think the Petal Pink worked so well with the other colours, but it’s staying in my stash and I’ll happily use it 🙂 Which one do you like/dislike?
I’m not going to add the inks to my supply list today as there are so many because I wanted to try several combinations, you could definitely mix it up a lot more than I have, just pick a few colours that you love and have a practice on scrap paper first before you use the “good stuff”.
