Stampin’ Up! Country Home and Rooted in Nature
Last night, I had the opportunity to stamp with an awesome group of teenage girls in Queen Creek, Arizona. Their creativity just blew me away!
I cut the pieces and showed them, step by step, how to create this card with rubber stamps, ink, and paper. But some of the ways they changed the card to make it their own were just amazing. (I should have taken some photos, but we were too wrapped up in crafting.)
The card starts with a Crumb Cake base, on top of which is a piece of the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. We stamped the stump image from Rooted in Nature with Soft Suede ink onto Very Vanilla card stock. We then added two leaves punched with the Cherry Cobbler card stock and the Leaf Punch. On top of that, we inserted a small slice of the Come to Gather DSP. And, finally, we stamped the sentiment (perfect for this month of gratitude) in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla card stock.
It was fun stamping with a group of girls who let their creativity flow.
I’m headed back in December to stamp on wooden tree ornaments and create a Gold Foil gift box.

Welcome to Team Stamp It’s Fall Blog Hop. Visit all of the blogs on the hop to gain inspiration and ideas for your fall crafting. Look for card samples using both Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog and Holiday Catalog (available for ordering September 4).
My card uses Stampin’ Up!’s Colorful Seasons stamp set and its coordinating Seasonal Layers Dies. It also uses a really fun technique called the Baby Wipe Technique.
Stampin’ Up! Colorful Season and Seasonal Layers Dies
The Baby Wipe Technique is super fun and allows you to create a range of awesome ink combinations, especially for the fall season. I usually grab a couple of baby wipes and stack them on top of each other. I then squirt drops of Stampin’ Up!’s ink refills onto the wipe, making sure the colors overlap. For this card, I used: Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, and Garden Green. You then press your stamp onto the baby wipe and then onto your paper (I used Shimmery White). You can move your stamp around to different sections of the wipe to attain different color variations. I then used the coordinating dies to crop the leaves from the paper.
Other fun elements of this card include: Background paper from the Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper, Gold Foil, the Stitched Nested Labels, and the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set.
