Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. Today is the Creation Station Blog Hop Artistic Expression. For our theme, the design team is using anything from the Artistic Expression section of the Stampin’ Up! catalog. I chose to use Rooted in Nature. Let’s take a look at what I’ve created. Then, you’ll want to be sure to check out the rest of the Creation Station team’s offerings!
Creation Station Blog Hop Artistic Expression
My inspiration for today’s card was pins I’ve been seeing about painting leaves.
For my card, I started with a Night of Navy base.
On the Whisper White layer, I stamped the small leafy image,
from Rooted in Nature, several times in Night of Navy.
Then, I added a Whisper White circle cut with Stitched Shapes Framelits.
Next, I added loops of gold Metallic Thread
followed by a trio of Night of Navy Leaves.
For the detail on the leaves, I used the Embossing Mats
with a Nature’s Roots Framelit.
Check out this video if you’d like to know more aout the Embossing Mats.
Then to tie in that painted leaf inspiration, I painted Versamark on some of the ridges
and embossed in gold.
To finish the card, I added a stitched Gold Foil square and the masked Night of Navy sentiment.
Creation Station blog hop Artistic Expression Rooted in Nature Favor
For my 3D, I created a coordinating Rooted in Nature favor.
To decorate my slim Night of Navy box, I added a stitched Gold Foil square.
After adding a pair of embossed Night of Navy leaves, I placed
loops of gold Metallic Thread.
Then, I finished with a stitched Whisper White circle with a masked sentiment.
Thanks for stopping in today and checking out my Rooted in Nature card and favor!
