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.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hello
Happy Saturday morning, November 2, 2019! It’s bright and sunny here and heading toward the mid-80s in Mesa, Arizona. It hasn’t been difficult getting used to the weather here! I’ve been out and about attending networking groups to meet new people and make connections. I try to bring a fun item to share made with Stampin’ Up! products, and, of course chocolate.
These Ghirardelli treats are my go-to item. They are quick and easy and cute and can be dressed up in any way for any holiday or event. This one features the stamp set Harvest Hellos and the Apple Builder Punch with the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.
Start with a strip of your favorite Designer Series Paper measuring 5 1/2 inches by just under 2 inches. Score at 2 5/8 and 2 7/8 inches. Trim both ends with Stampin’ Up!’s Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Fold on the score lines. Insert your chocolate. I usually add a little adhesive to keep the chocolate in place. Close the package with coordinating ribbon and decorate the front.
For my meetings, I package in a cello bag and include either a business card or a free class pass. Everyone loves a little chocolate!
