Nature's Beauty Stamp Set for Wintry Scenes

Stampin' Up! Nature's Beauty

I am such a fan of the two stamp sets I'm using today.  Winter Woods Stamp set is a Stampin' Up! carry-over from last year.  The new stamp form this year's Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, Nature's Beauty, is simply images that are close to my heart.  My desk looks out our second-story window into the woods behind out home.  The wildlife in the back yard includes a herd of deer, rabbits and foxes, plus hawks, and other feather friends and an occasional coyote. I thoroughly enjoy creating my blog while looking over my own private haven of wildlife who come to visit towards sundown each evening.  The deer romp, and chase each other or just lounge on a grassy knoll among the trees.    While today's card is a wintry scene, it captures the feel most evenings in our back yard.  

The basecard for this card is Seaside Spray  Then the next layer is Night of Navy.  The image layer is Whisper White.  

An additional layer is created by sponging a rectangle of Seaside Spray onto the Whisper White layer.  I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a layer that I used as a mask to cover the rest of the Whisper White layer and sponged Seaside Spray ink on the cut-out opening in the mask layer.


Then I inked up the pine tree in the Winter Woods Stamp Set with Night of Navy ink and stamped the two trees.  I used some of the smaller trees from Nature's Beauty Stamp Set and Night of Navy ink to add more branches to the image layer.  

I then stamped the fox image from Nature's Beauty onto a scrap of Whisper White and fussy cut it out before popping it up on Dimensionals and adding it to the front of the card.

To complete the card, I stamp different sentiments from Rustic Retreat and Healing Hugs onto Crumb Cake cardstock in Night of Navy Ink.  

One additional benefit of purchasing the Nature's Beauty Stamp Set: $3 of your purchase goes to charity. Inspiration for today's card is from Lyssa Zwolanek from

Winter Woods Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! for Lovely Christmas Cards

Winter Woods Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! 

The stamp set and coordinating  die bundle I'm highlighting today is the Winter Woods bundle.  It comes in both clear and wood-mount  Also, I found these cute bows in one of the dies from the Farm House Christmas Bundle.  The small bows die cuts 6 bows at a time, which is extremely time-saving.   The coordinating dies are call In the woods and it too includes time-saving dies by including duplicates of the detailed tree I used on the right side of my card as well as duplicates of the pine cone and duplicates of the individual pine bough.  When I'm in a hurry, I love when a die set realizes what a pain it can be to cut duplicates of several small items.  With duplicate dies of small items I can cut the pieces I need more quickly and spend time working on different card designs...or maybe watching one of the new Fall TV series that seem to be happening this week.        


This card was originally just going to be a test of the dies and stamp set, but the layout came together so easily that I decided to add a ribbon, cut some red bows for the tree and just glued everything down...and it became one of my favorite cards!   

The basecard for this card is Crumb Cake cardstock.  The next layer is Soft Suede, which peeks out of the top and bottom of the image layer.  The image layer is Whisper White. 

The sentiment is from the Winter Woods Stamp set and it is stamped in Real Red at the bottom of the card.  I added a small, Red Rhinestone near the sentiment.

I die cut one of the full trees and one of the bare trees -- both in Crumb Cake -- and glued them to the front of the card. The larger, fuller tree has edges you can flip up to create a more realistic tree.  Use embossing paste to create snow on your tree. Then I used one of the dies from the Farmhouse Framelits Dies and cut six Real Red bows.  This is a single die that cuts six bows.

The ribbon is the Gold metallic-edged ribbon, colored slightly with a Vanilla Blends to deepen the rich color of this ribbon. 

Take a look at this video showing more details about this die set.  If the video doesn't show in your browser, see it here.  Hint:  You want to watch this video to the end to see how to use it to coordinate with other tree sets in the main catalog...And its pretty funny!

All stamp sets and die bundles are available in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  If you haven't looked through the catalog, download a copy and look through the fun, new Holiday products.  Now is a great time to order the stamp set and dies you want so you'll have them in plenty of time to create your hand made holiday cards.
