Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. Today, I’m hopping with the One Stamp at a Time design team for the OSAT Blog Hop I Need a Hero. When we say hero, for this hop, we mean teachers, first responders and the like. With this definition of hero, one of my favorites has to be teachers. Because if we can learn how to learn, we can do anything!!
OSAT Blog Hop I Need a Hero Rooted in Nature Card
For my card, I started with a Gray Granite base.
Then, I added a tight mat of Blackberry Bliss.
This teacher thank you could easily go masculine or feminine!
For the next layer, I used my favorite Buffalo Check.
After stamping in Blackberry Bliss on Very Vanilla,
I used my Light Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends and a ruler to add lines
to turn the check into a simple plaid.
Tip: By using the Stampin’ Blends for the lines, your stamped color won’t bleed/mix.
Move the Stampin’ Blends marker quickly and evenly so that you don’t
get spots or thick lines in places.
Next, I used another favorite — the new Sprig Punch.
Using sprigs in Crushed Curry and Gold Glimmer Paper, I created an
airy layer behind the Tree Slice image.
Also behind the Tree Slice is a piece of Braided Linen Trim.
For the tree slice, I stamped in Gray Granite on Gray Granite.
Then, I cut it out by hand.
After stamping the Rooted in Nature sentiment in Blackberry Bliss on Crushed Curry,
I adhered it with Dimensionals and accented with a single
Gold Faceted Gem.
OSAT Blog Hop I Need a Hero Rooted in Nature Gift Pouch
For my gift pouch, I started by stamping the Buffalo Check and again making it a plaid.
In order to create a larger piece of Buffalo Check, I used my Stamparatus
to match up the pattern.
To decorate the top of the self closing pouch,
I tied some Braided Linen Trim with a bit of Gold Sequin Trim around the top.
Next, I stamped the Tree Slice and sheer embossed in gold.
Using the Sprig Punch, I added Crushed Curry and Gold Glimmer Paper accents.
And, I finished the pouch with a Rooted in Nature sentiment.
Thanks for stopping in today to see my Rooted in Nature card and gift pouch!
