May Be Inspired Blog Hop

Hello and thanks for stopping by today! For the May Be Inspired Blog Hop we are creating projects with a masculine theme. I have chosen to use one of my new favorites… Rooted in Nature stamp set paired with the incredible Stamparatus stamping tool. When thinking about what sort of masculine card to create, it was a quick decision to grab this set, as there are loads of generic images to choose from. Both of the images are created with a different technique as well! Check below to find all of the links to the Design Team’s projects, you will love what they have created to share with you!

Rooted in Nature Bundle from Nature’s Poem Suite

Images from nature are always inspiring for me, and Rooted in Nature is no exception. I like the variety of large images mixed with smaller images and the fantastic sentiments. In fact, it was the sentiments that most attracted my eye to this set. I also appreciate how well the images work together to help a project a success. The first technique I created for this project is to stamp VersaMark clear sticky ink onto Glossy White Paper for an ink resist look. The effect is really unique in as the applied color will not completely soak into the area that was stamped with VersaMark. When the browns were stamped over the dried sentiment, the Glossy White Paper soaks in the inks a bit different from typical paper card stock. After gently rubbing the image with a tissue, the sentiment appeared and was easy to fussy cut.

The Stamparatus also helped give natural shading to the tree image

I’m guessing this tree image, I’m calling it Mr. Longfellow, would look great with any technique or no technique at all. It’s a beautiful image and is large enough to create an easy focal point. Being my first time to stamp Mr. Longfellow, I wanted to try out an ombre look to the greenery. Using the Stamparatus to accomplish this look is easy peasy. Once placed in the stamping tool, any ink added to the image will appear in the exact same place on the paper. This makes using markers really easy to isolate certain areas of one image. I honestly could not get this to look nice without the help of the Stamparatus, it is that much help! The Stampin’ Write Markers I used are: Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Soft Seafoam, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow.

  1. Apart from nature stamps…YOU always inspire me! Another stunning project Jenny! I don’t have Rooted in Nature as yet…it’s on the way in my next order and your card is one of the most beautiful cards I’ve seen using this set. Thanks for sharing. Louise xo

  2. Gorgeous card! Did you emboss the sentiment? You also said you fussy cut the sentiment. It looks like it and the large wood circle are stamped directly on the card. Did you fussy cut the large wood circle? I guess I would just love to hold your card myself. It’s beautiful!

    • Thanks, Jenae! The sentiment was first stamped in VersaMark onto Glossy White Paper. No embossing powder used. Once dry, it acts like a seal for the paper underneath 🙂 I fussy cut most of the images, including the large wood circle and sentiment. If there is a coordinating die, I use that instead. I’m so glad you like this card!

I love to read your comments! Please leave one here.
