Nature Walk

One More Nature Walk card

I just can't stop using this stamp set (Nature Walk). I LOVE IT! It is definitely one of my new favs so it better make it into the next big catalog. It is in the Occasions mini right now and it is so beautiful and versatile. The background paper is from the Botanical Gazette designer paper pack. The colors I used are riding hood red, espresso, and vanilla.

Nature Walk with Saffron and Espresso

Well, it is another freezing cold day here in VA again! I am so ready for spring, I could just scream. If you know me at all, then you probably know I am a sun lover. If it is the least bit warm and sunny out, I will run outside and try to soak some of it up. I am going into withdrawals now because it has been so many months of cold, dreary weather. Please God, bring me some sunshine and 70's soon. Well, enough complaining about the weather…..

Don't you just love the names of our Stampin Up colors? This card uses so saffron and early espresso. It seems that many of our colors are named after food items. I wonder if that is why I am always hungry??  My good friend Michelle gave me the inspiration for this card. SHe made one kind of similar for a swap I was in.  The trick to making this card super easy is putting all of the stamps on one clear block and then you only have to stamp once or twice! Pretty clever huh! The piece that I stamped on is from the Botanical Gazette designer paper pack and I used the piece that had little honeycombs on it. I also used the new tulip frame embossing folder.

February Stamp Camp projects

Well, I just finished watching the movie Unstoppable with Denzel Washington about the runaway train in Pennsylvania…..WOW! What a great movie. The problem is it is 11:00pm and I am so stressed out from watching it that it might be a while before I can get to sleep. It is a hang on to the edge of your seat movie. I am surprised I have any fingernails left. I highly recommend it. It is based on a true story too.  So, I decided that maybe if I worked on my blog for a little while it might relax me. Here are a few projects I have been working on lately.




This past weekend I had my February Stamp Camp and we made this cute box purse and set of 4 cards.  For most of the projects I used the Nature Walk set from the Occasions mini along with the Botanical Gazette designer paper also in the Occasions mini.





Here is a close up of the front of the box. I used the 2 1/2 in circle punch and the 2 3/8 scallop circle punch for these.





Here is a pic of all the cards and the box. All of the cards except for one are made with the Nature Walk set and the one with the butterfly on the front is made with the Bliss set which you can get for free from the Sale-a-bration mini with a $50 purchase. I will post more pics of the individual cards this week.

Another Nature Walk Sample….


This one is similar to the one I posted a couple of days ago but I changed the colors and background paper and changed it from portrait to landscape. Pretty much everything else stayed the same.  It is the Nature Walk stamp set and the Botanical Gazette designer paper. I love this set and it looks so pretty in almost any color. I love this ribbon technique that my friend Kimberly taught me. It gives such a pretty vintage look to any card. 



Here is another close up of the ribbon and button too. I love Stampin Up's buttons and ribbons! I would say I am a ribbon-a-holic.


Nature Walk….my new favorite set


Sorry I have been so bad about posting lately. Life has been hectic and I have been so overwhelmed with 5 million things to do. I am sure most of you can relate. Hopefully things will calm down and I can have more time to stamp soon!

This is a card I did for a recent swap. I used the new Nature Walk set from the Stampin Up Occasions mini. I LOOOOOOOVE this stamp set. I love any kind of nature sets that look realistic. I am not into the cartoony (is that a word?) ones. I love the vintage style of stamping right now and this ribbon technique and the button really add a nice touch to this card. The background piece is the vintage wallpaper embossing folder and I sponged that with crumb cake. The designer paper is from the Botanical Gazette (also in the Occasions mini) and if you spend $50 or more this month, you can get a free item from our Sale-a-bration mini too! What a deal!



Here is a close up of that ribbon and the button. I love Stampin Up ribbon. It is hard to find a better deal anywhere!


Here are a couple of my leadership swaps…..




I thought I would show you a couple of my own Leadership swaps…..

These are both quick and easy cards. For both of these cards,  I used the Botanical Gazette designer paper from the Stampin Up Occasions mini and the Nature Walk set also from the Occasions mini. I added a little rhinestone bling to the butterflies.  I hope you like these.


Gorgeous Nature Walk set

I think this is definitely my favorite new stamp set from the Stampin Up Occasions mini! It is called Nature Walk and can be found on pg 27. I love nature sets and this one is absolutely gorgeous! My good friend Mary Anne Grimmer made this card for a swap I just hosted. She is one fantastic stamper. I wished she lived closer so we could stamp together more. She lives in Charlotte, NC so if any of you live close to her and need a demonstrator, let me know and I will hook you up with her. THere are so many neat components to this card.


Check out this trinket key and mini tag. We now sell these cool keys on pg 24 of the Occasions mini! There are also some other cute things on that page so go check them out!
