Stampin’ Up Natures Beauty Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Did anyone do anything fun or exciting?  It was a beautiful weekend here. I went for a couple walks on Sunday.  I took a walk into town in the morning and since it was still cool enough I was able to bring Jasmine for a walk.  I feel so bad not bringing her, but the pavement is just too hot for her paws.  She love walking into town, she always thinks we’re going to her store, the dog bakery.  She knows they always give her extra treats.  Unfortunately they weren’t open yet.  Then in the afternoon my family and I went over to Dukes Estate for a nice long walk.  We only walked about 3 miles this time compared to the 7 last time we went.  I can’t wait to go back there in the fall when all the leaves are changing, and it will be a little cooler then.

I have another sneak peek from the 2019 Holiday Catalog for you.  Here’s my card for you today.

I joined in with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #400 with my card today.  Here is their sketch.

My colors were inspired by CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #333.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the sentiment from Stampin’ Up A Little Lace Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on the bottom of an Old Olive card front. I embossed the card front using the Woodland Embossing Folder and added 3 Gold Metallic Pearls to the top.

I embossed a small panel of Grapefruit Grove card stock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and then adhered it to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the matted panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Old Olive/Pretty Peacock 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon around the card front and using Multipurpose Liquid Glue I adhered the card front to an Old Olive card base.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up Natures Beauty Cling Stamp Set (available Sept 4) in Soft Suede Ink a couple of times.  Using my Stamping Sponges I sponged the Whisper White panel using my Grapefruit Grove Ink on the top and Old Olive Ink on the bottom.   Using the grass image from the Natures Beauty stamp set I stamped some grass around the bottom sponged area in Old Olive Ink.  I adhered the sponged panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail.  On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink and fussy cut the image out using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the fox to the sponged panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I cut a leaf out of Cajun Craze cardstock using the Gathered Leaves Dies (available Sept 4).  I adhered the leaf to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink, stamping off once, on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tree image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, stamping off twice, 3 times across the middle of the Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Old Olive card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fox image from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the tree images from the Natures Beauty stamp set in Soft Suede Ink, some full strength and some stamped off, across the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you like my card.  This set will be available for purchase on September 4th.  Happy Stamping!!
