I am on a nature kick lately…
playing with neutrals and some of the beautiful animal images Stampin’ Up offers us.
I was inspired by Australian Demo Kylie Bertucci. Here is her card:
I stamped the Crumb Cake front panel with the Stampin’ Up Rooted in Nature stamp set. The log and the leaves were stamped in Soft Suede and the little branches of leaves were stamped with Early Espresso to coordinate with the card base and sentiment. I was going to put a layer around my focal image of the animals but then thought…dang, I can use my Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out an opening and get to see the outside decorative stitching left on the panel and then inlay the deer image with dimensionals leaving a dark border around it made from the existing card base! Now, I have another stamped die cut rectangle to make something with…you know I will…sooner or later…let’s hope it is sooner;)
I have a simple yet cool Window technique card for you today, friends!
That moose is just too cute! Here is a video showing how easy it is to make this card:
The Birch Background Stamp is perfect to fill in the card panel without being busy so your eye go to the images stamped inside the card.
The design stays cohesive using the Stitched Nested Label Dies for the sentiment.
I love when my design gets to show off the other side of the stitching that is left after die cutting. Notice that on the opening?
The rhinestones adds some sparkle to coordinate with the scarf:)
Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″
Inside and outside Very Vanilla panels: 4″ x 5-1/4″
I finally cut into the gorgeous Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper!
I made a Fun fold called a Buckle Card because of the way the card closes- a belt slides into a buckle:)
Here is a video showing how to make one:
The beautiful hummingbirds with the clear embossed texture on the DSP were easy to fussy cut with my Stampin’ Up Paper Snips. I made two different variations depending on how the hummingbird was facing.
The Stampin’ Up Here’s a Card stamp set had a great sentiment that fit the card wonderfully.
Card Base is 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 5-1/2″ on 8-1/2″ side.
The Leaves DSP is 2-3/4″ x 4″ and the belt DSP is 1-1/2″ x 3″.
The Belt is 1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 5-1/4″ so there is a 1/4″ flap to attach to the card base.
The embossed circle is 2-1/4″, the bordering circle is 2-1/2″. Inside panel is 4″ x 5-1/4″.
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

* I did use the 2-1/4″ and the 2-1/2″ circle punches:)
I just loved the Stampin’ Up You Always Deliver stamp set when I first saw it
since I have been known to tell my UPS driver that he is one of my favorite people!
However, I made him a USPS carrier fo this card:)
I made a gift card holder simply by scoring a 4-1/4″ x 9-3/4″ piece of cardstock
at 4-1/4″ and 8-1/2″ on the 9-3/4″ side and folding up the edge at 8-1/2″ to create a pocket.
Of course, you know I cut my oval scallops out of the Crumb Cake panel on the front;)
