Rooted in Nature for Father’s Day and Hand Stamped Sentiments

 

Natural Card Featuring #RootedinNature, #DelightfulDozen, #FathersDay, #Masculine, #SecretsToStamping, #StampinUp

 

We had so much fun looking at the creations you made for Hand Stamped Sentiments in the last challenge! Wonderful nautical designs!! Our next challenge is a sketch and we can’t wait to see what you do with it. I decided to break out the brand new Rooted in Nature bundle because I needed to make a Father’s Day card for my father, who lives in Atlanta. This is a must-have bundle! We all have someone who will appreciate the gorgeous trees in this set – and is esecially great for all of the men you know!!

 

My Secrets to Making This Rooted in Nature Project
  • I tried to balance the four, smaller tree elements in the sketch by adding the large tree on the left side. The smaller trees anchor the right side.
  • When adding a third color (Crumb Cake for this card), it’s important to use it at least twice, which also adds more balance and symmetry to the card front.

There’s a new challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters – Animals, hosted by Terri. Who doesn’t love to get a card with adorable animals on them?! I bet there’s someone on your list right now who would love one, so I hope you will play along. This card features the Hedgehugs stamp set that came out in the Occasions Catalog this year and was carried over in the the new Annual Catalog. The images are really cute, don’t you think?

 

My Secrets to Making This Hedgehugs Project
  • This was truly a fast and easy card to make, so I don’t have any secrets per se, but I did go to my ever-growing stock of dies to find just the right flower that looks so similar to the flower stamp used. Adding those little touches make a card, in my opinion, and took this card to the next level of cuteness!
