Stampin’ Up Rooted In Nature Z-Fold Birthday Card

Good Wednesday morning everyone.  Well, we made it half way through the week.  Hope yours is going well.  I’ve made a fun fold card today for you using the lovely Rooted In Nature stamp set.  Take a look.

I started with a piece of Thick Very Vanilla cardstock.  To make the Z-Fold I scored an   8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ card base at 4 1/4″ and again at 2 1/8″.  this is how it will look when folded.

On the 2 smaller panels I adhered a piece of Natures Poem Designer Series Paper using Snail.

On a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the tree trunk image in Soft Suede Ink stamping it off twice.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature on top of the tree trunk. Using my Layering Squares Framelits Dies I cut the image out with the largest square framelit using my Big Shot.  Then I cut a piece of Tranquil Tide cardstock using the largest Scallop Square Framelit Die, again with my Big Shot.  I adhered the Very Vanilla square to the scallop square using Snail.  I attached the square in the middle of the folded panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals only on the one half.

On a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set using my Soft Suede and Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Markers.  I then cut the tree out using the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies with my Big Shot.  I attached the tree using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the trunk and Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the top leaves.

On the inside I lined the card base with another piece of the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  I stamped the tree trunk again on a small piece of Very Vanilla cardstock in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off four times to get a very light image.  I stamped the sentiment from Colorful Seasons Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on top of the tree trunk.  I then sponged the edges using my Sponge Daubers, in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I adhered the small panel to the inside of the card, making sure it was under the card front square so that you can not see it when the card is closed, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish off my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope flap using the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope that you will give this Z-Fold card a try.  Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up Country Home Thanksgiving Card

Good Tuesday morning everyone.  Hope your week has started off well.  For my card today I used the Country Home Photopolymer stamp set and Buffalo Check stamp set.  I’m not much of a ‘country’ type person, but I’m really loving these sets.  Once again I’ve used my Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I just love coloring with them.  I normally can’t color to save my life, but with these markers it seems really easy.  Take a look.  I’ve gone with some non traditional fall colors.

I started with a piece of Mango Melody cardstock and stamped it with the Buffalo Check stamp in Night of Navy Ink.  I adhered it to a Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Pitcher image from the Country Home Photopolymer stamp set in Tuxedo Black Momento Ink. I colored it in using my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blends Markers.  Above the pitcher I stamped one of the floral images from the Country Home stamp set. I colored this in using my Blackberry Bliss, Mango Melody, Old Olive and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I used some Clear Wink of Stella on the white flowers to make them shimmer a little.  I adhered the artwork panel first to a mat of Poppy Parade, using Snail, then to a mat of Night of Navy, using Snail again.  I attached a small piece of  5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the card front using Snail and adhered the matted artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Mango Melody cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink and made a banner. I edged it with my Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it to the left side of the card front using Snail.

On the inside I stamped the floral image on the bottom of Whisper White cardstock in Night of Navy Ink stamping off twice.  I then stamped another one of the sentiments in Night of Navy Ink in the center.  I adhered it to a Mango Melody Mat using Snail and adhered it to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope by stamping the floral image in Night of Navy Ink, stamping off once, on the front of the envelope.  On the envelope flap I stamped the Buffalo Check image in Night of Navy Ink.  Thank you for checking out my blog and I hope you will stop back again soon.  Give this card a try, it was a pretty easy one.  Happy Stamping!
