Natures Beauty

October 4, 2019

You might have missed the Natures Beauty stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue.  It is on the inside of the back cover and this stamp set has a special significance.  For every one of this stamp set purchased in Australia $4.25 will be donated to Australian Metal Health Organisations.  That in itself is a good reason to purchase the stamp set, but, it is a truly lovely set and one that will be useful for many different occasions.  When I receive a new stamp set, I like to stamp all of the images onto a sheet of A4 Whisper White.  If the stamp set has any co-ordinating dies, I cut them and attach them to the page also.  I store these in a A4 folder and as well as being a visual reminder of what each stamp set contains, whilst I am stamping the images, I start to get ideas of how I want to use them.  This card was made immediately after creating my reference card.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Winter Woods stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Crumb Cake ink.  I used the die from the In The Woods Dies to cut the top of a piece of Mossy Meadow card before embossing it using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder (I can’t believe how much I use this folder!).  I attached the embossed card to the stamped Very Vanilla card and then scored and folded Crumb Cake card.  I stamped the deer image from the Natures Beauty stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Soft Suede ink and cut it out using the Layering Ovals Dies.  I attached the image to a Soft Suede scalloped oval cut using the same dies and then the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped “thinking of you” from the Colourful Seasons stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Soft Suede ink. I cut out the greeting using the Merry Christmas Dies before attaching to the card front.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the tree trunk image from the Winter Woods stamp set across a narrow strip of Very Vanilla card using Crumb Cake ink.  I attached a narrow strip of Mossy Meadow card behind the top edge before attaching to Very Vanilla card.

I am really pleased with my first use of this stamp set and I have a few more ideas to use these images.  I hope I have inspired you to take another look at this stamp set to add to your collection.

Bye for now,

Kris
