Stampin' Up! Earthen Elegance ~ Casually Crafting Blog Hop


 Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm taking part in a blog hop with the Casually Crafting Design Team!  We are an international group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who want to share our take on casual crafting.  We will share what we love with you monthly.  Be sure to check out the rests of the design team's projects using the links at the bottom of this post.

For our challenge this month we were to make a card using Soft Sea Foam, Balmy Blue & Smoky Slate.  My first thought when seeing the colors and the photo was that this challenge would be perfect for soft Christmas Card.  However, something happened while I was perusing my stamp shelves for a stamp set, and I ended up grabbing one I didn't expect. 

I haven't used Earthen Textures much yet, but I am looking forward to when I do get a chance to focus on it!  For now, I really enjoyed making this card with these softer colors and this earthy stamp set.  

I stamped the vase first, with Smoky Slate ink.  Then, I placed a sticky note over it before stamping the leafy fronds using Soft Sea Foam ink.  The sticky note prevented the bottom of the stems from being stamped on the vase so that it looks like they are naturally coming out of the vase. 

After stamping the sentiment with Balmy Blue ink, I used my Double Oval Punch to punch it out.  Then, I used my blending brush to blend a little of Balmy Blue onto the card, on the area where the sentiment would go.  I then attached the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals and added a few 2023-2025 In Color Dots. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  Please be sure to visit the other blogs in this hop, which are listed below.

Happy Stamping!
