Nature's Walk

Hi Everyone.  In this post I will be sharing one of the stamp sets that made it from the Occasions Mini into the new Stampin' Up! 2011 2012 Idea Book and Catalogue.  This new catalogue will be available to order from starting July 1st.  The catalogue is filled to the brim with soon to be new favourites and also some of the favourites from last year and the year before that.

My card is for the Tangled Up in Creativity challenge hosted by Lynn.  The challenge was to include torn paper somewhere on your card.  To me the torn paper ties in so nicely with the vintage look.

Stamps: Natures Walk (c – 121997, $22.95 w – 121925, $31.95 2011 2012 IB&C p 114), Happiest Birthday Wishes (2011/12 IB&C – Hostess )

Paper:  Natural Ivory, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Paisley Prints DSP

Ink:  Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler

Accessories: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Sponges, Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Punch Markers – Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Chantilly Crochet Trim

I used the markers to colour the flowers and the leaves on the stamp and then stamped once and stamped off again. This is a great way to make your own designer paper.  The Paisley Petals DSP is torn on the edges and sponged using Soft Suede ink.  This is another way in which to achieve the vintage look.

You can contact me to set up a Stampin' Up! class and as a hostess, you will receive the new 2011 2012 Idea Book and Catalogue, plus there are new Hostess Benefits starting July 1st.  Contact me HERE to find out what the Hostess Benefits are all about.....EXCITING!!!
