It’s time for nature this week with the CASE the Catalog featuring the Nature’s Poem Suite, so let’s get started. First of all, this suite of products includes the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set Bundle, Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper, Nature’s Twine and the Leaves Trinkets embellishments. Though the calendar indicates it is officially Fall, here in Georgia we are still experiencing summer. Therefore, while waiting for nature to change it’s weather pattern, I thought a nature themed card might help! It’s certainly worth a try. Hey, whatever it takes! The card I cased is on page 144 in the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. I also like the other three cards on that page but those are for another day.
Another thing about the nature this week card is that it also features a textured embossed layer using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. That’s probably why I like it so much.
Start with Petal Pink cardstock cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score at 4-1/4″ to create the card base (5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″). Use Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to texture emboss a 5-1/4″ x 4″ Petal Pink cardstock. Drag a White Craft Ink pad across the embossed layer to add extra dimension. Allow ink to dry before attaching to the Petal Pink card base.
The brown leaf DSP is 5″ x 2-3/4″ and the falling leaf DSP is 4-3/4″ x 2-3/4″. Cut a notch in the leaf DSP to create a banner. Layer the two pieces of DSP (refer to photo for placement). Wrap Nature’s Twine around top of the DSP layers before attaching to prepared Petal Pink card base.
Finally, use Soft Suede Classic ink to stamp the tree stump into a 3″ square of Crumb Cake cardstock. Stamp the sentiment using Versamark ink with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Use heat tool to set embossing powder. Stamp five sets of leaves onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock using Tanquil Tide Classic Stampin’ Pad and cut using coordinating Nature’s Root Thinlit Die. Layer the leaves, the Leaves Trinkets and the Sentiment to complete the card.
Maybe it’s me, but I think it’s really even more impressive in person. I so enjoy nature cards because it’s just another part of beautify and as a result, my creativity also flows. Likewise for beach scenes cards. I know everyone has their personal serenity. I also hope you enjoyed this weeks CASE the Catalog.
As with every new catalog, comes new card packs. There are new Memories & More card packs in 2018-2019 annual catalog. The best part about these new card packs is that they have been redesigned to support card making a little more. Although they are designed for scrapbooking, it’s nice that they coordinate with some of our suites. I do appreciate the Memories & More line because it makes memory keeping so much easier. Since so many people either don’t have time to scrapbook or don’t know how, it’s great to have something that supports scrapbooking and helps guide even the novice scrapbooker.
What Can You Do With Memories & More
These kits are the perfect way to create cards, tags, scrapbooking and anything you can think of using your adhesive. There are envelopes, stickers and a variety of cardstock sizes of paper to all coordinate with our suites. When you add a few of your own embellishments or accents, the possibilities are endless. There are a few different card packs to choose from and each one coordinates with a suite. Each suite has a number of products that also coordinate. All of these products make it so much fun for any level crafter to have fun with. They also make it easy to do projects with children and groups.
Stampin’ Up! put together this new video to give you an idea about what is new with the Memories and More line as well as show us some samples from the card packs. Take a look as Tanner walks us through it:
You don’t have to be a scrapbooker to make use of any of these card packs. Think outside the box. You can check out all the Memories and More products in my store. Use them for scrapbooking, cardmaking, tags, or anything you can think of. If you need any assistance with these products, please don’t hesitate to contact me, I’m happy to help.
The Graceful Glass Suite is just one of the new suites in the 2018-2019 annual catalog. The suite is featured on pages 164 and 165 of the new annual catalog. As with any suite, you have a bunch of products that make up the complete suite. Included is a stamp set, the stained glass framelit dies, the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum which I might add is perfect for coloring with your Stampin’ Blends, However, you can use other coloring options as well. You also get Tinted Faceted Buttons and some black cord.
