Creation Station Blog Hop Artistic Expression

August 5, 2018 8 Comments

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.

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!

    Just beautiful, Sara. I love your old embossed leaves – can’t wait to try it. D x

      Thanks Denita! There are so many ways to play with this idea – have fun.

  • Elizabeth Price August 7, 2018 at 10:54 am

    Sara these projects are so gorgeous. I am totally drooling over your navy leaves with the touch of gold embossing. They look rich and expensive. Awesome post my friend.

    • Sara Levin August 8, 2018 at 7:26 am

      Thanks Elizabeth! So glad you liked my “painted” leaves.

  • Kathy Kartak August 5, 2018 at 3:09 pm

    Sara: The navy and gold are stunning together! The details on your projects add lovely touches! xoKathyxo

    • Sara Levin August 5, 2018 at 5:56 pm

      Thanks Kathy! I really should reach for that Gold Foil more often.

  • Sara Nell Langland August 5, 2018 at 9:42 am

    Wow! I just love your navy and gold projects. I am going to remember how you used that small leaf image–it makes such a pretty backdrop for the gold embossed leaves and greeting piece.

    • Sara Levin August 5, 2018 at 10:16 am

      Thanks Sara! I love small leafy images like this one. But, I’m sure I’ve overlooked it in previous creations.
