Nature This Week in the CASE the Catalog – Nature’s Poem Suite

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.

Nature's Poem Product Suite

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.

Dandelion Wishes – CASE the Catalog

Hi all and welcome to this week’s CASE the Catalog.  The card features the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and you can see the inspiration card on page 118 in the Stampin’ Up! 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  Instead of using the Wood Textures DSP (Designer Series Paper) as shown in the catalog, I used Garden Impressions DSP as the base to stamp the dandelion flowers using Grapefruit Grove Classic Stampin’ Ink Pad.  When planning your cards, be sure to look at your DSP to use as a stamping base!  The Grapefruit Grove is a versatile color and blends well with many of the other Stampin’ Up! colors such as the Granny Apple Green used to compliment this card.

Notes of Kindness

It’s time for CASE the Catalog!!  As you may remember, last week I announced my new weekly segment.  This week I have a few different cards from the Notes of Kindness card kit.  I hope you enjoy them all. 

The cards below are various cards from the Notes of Kindness card kit.  It’s a wonderful kit and I have a picture of the contents below.  Remember, our kits come with refills as well.  The coordinating colors are Basic Black, Blackberry Bliss, Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Soft Sea Foam.

Notes of Kindness Catalog Casing

The first card samples have two different sentiments.  Both are large and to the point.  I love the flowers. In each case, the flower is the focal point but the sentiments also make the cards.

So these next cards are a little more different.  One has a large sentiment in the center which is the card from the kit.  The second card has the larger image and the sentiment smaller with less focus.  A great alternate.

Additionally, I wanted to give you two samples with the same image and sentiment but the placing is a bit different.  One card is landscape oriented while the other is portrait.  Same images, style and sentiment with just a turn of the cardstock.

Finally, I have two cards with the same style.  The difference is in the actual sentiment rather than the style.  There was also the addition of Twine on one card and Pearls on the other.

As a result, CASE the catalog is also becoming my favorite segment each week.  I greatly enjoy bringing you new ideas and inspiration.  Additionally, once the Holiday catalog is released, I will CASE from that catalog as well.  Therefore, you have so much to look forward to over the next several week.  Enjoy!
