Showcasing a masculine card using Stampin’ Up!’s Rooted in Nature stamp set and Nature’s Roots Dies.
Last Saturday, I participated in Team Stamps It’s monthly blog hop. This month, we featured cards centering on the men in our lives and Father’s Day. I made two cards, and I couldn’t decide which one to share. See Saturday’s card (using the brand-new World of Good Suite) here.
When I designed this card, I liked the idea of using the Woodland Embossing Folder to make a background with three different colors: Garden Green, Crumb Cake, and Cherry Cobbler.
The Rooted in Nature stamp set offers a host of images perfecting for creating masculine-themed cards. I’m excited to say this stamp set and its coordinating dies appear in Stampin’ Up!’s new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.
The coordinating Nature’s Roots Dies coordinate with the above stamp set. Through June 2 or while supplies last, these dies are listed on sale for $15.60. That’s a deal!
A couple of notes about this card. I stamped the:
- stump image with Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla card stock and fussy cut with snips;
- leaf image onto Vellum Card Stock with Garden Green ink three times without reinking. (That’s called third generation stamping.) Step away and let the ink dry before die cutting.
See the photo below for how that looks on Vellum. I then used a die cutting machine and the coordinating dies to get the images.

One of the new Sale-A-Bration items released today is the Flowering Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper. Remember: It’s free with a purchase of $50 before tax and shipping. One package contains 12 sheets of rose gold and silver foil designs — perfect for adding color with Stampin’ Blends and/or sponging.
For this card (inspired by Kylie Bertucci), I tapped a sponge dauber onto the ink and added color to the this lovely paper. I used Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz. I added a sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set, and the result is an easy and beautiful card.

Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos Bundle
November is seen as the month of gratitude, giving thanks for those wonderful things in our lives. I’m thankful for the gift of Stampin’ Up!, being introduced to the craft about twenty-five years ago.
Stampin’ Up!’s Harvest Hellos Bundle has helped me create cards and small treat packaging to celebrate this month. The stamp set and coordinating punch can be used both as an apple and a pumpkin. Here, Dawn Seelhoff has created a card for offering thanks, focusing on the colors of Pretty Peacock and Gray Granite.
Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know if you have questions about how this card was created. Click on any of the graphics below to be taken directly to my online store where you can shop 24/7.
I initially purchased three packages of Stampin’ Up!’s 12 x 12 Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. It’s filled with an array of fall themes and images, but I never thought I’d use it all. Well, I did. And, I’m waiting for two additional packages to arrive next week. Today, I wanted to create some thank you cards to send to my Paper Pumpkin subscribers and was forced to create something with just the scraps I had. This is the result.
I CASEd the layout and design from a card I received from Kathryn Collison for World Card Sending Week. In addition to the Come to Gather DSP, I used the sentiment from Good Morning Magnolia and the limited-time only Gold Shimmer Ribbon. The colors of the card stock are Merry Merlot and Early Espresso. Just a quick and easy card that’s oh so pretty in person.
