Buffalo Check meets Rooted in Nature

I needed a masculine card and while I am waiting for my beautiful new products to arrive from the brand new Annual Catalogue, I decided to reach for my trusted Rooted in Nature set. I just love this set and how easy it is to put together both male and female cards!

I used the Buffalo Check Stamp with smoky slate ink to create the background and stamped and die cut various elements in black, gold and smoky slate.

I added some extra texture and interest by gold heat embossing the background on the front panel using the splatter from Artisan Textures, and finished off with some linen thread and some basic white sequins.

I wanted to create a masculine card that was both simple and stylish – hopefully I achieved this xxx

Farewell to the 2017-2019 In Colours using First Frost & Country Road

It’s always sad to say goodbye to the retiring In Colours, but I have truly LOVED the 2017-19 In Colours. They are without a doubt, my favorite since becoming an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in 2016.

I wanted to showcase those gorgeous colours one last time before they are gone for good next month, and love the way they look here, paired with Basic Grey.

As soon as I saw Country Home in the catalogue, I thought it would make a great masculine card. But here, I have turned that idea on its head with the addition instead of those stunning floral images from First Frost.

This stamp set is simply gorgeous! I can’t wait to try out more ideas with it.

For now, it’s a fond farewell to the stunning Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide & Fresh Fig 😥. Soon to be gone, but never to be forgotten 😉 xx
