SSINKspiration Create a Card Swap: Rooted in Nature

Happy Friday!  With the arrival of a new catalog it's always fun to get in the swap action, it's fun to play with new products and get samples to share with products and ideas that you may not have.  This month the SSINKspiration team decided to do a unique type of sway, a create a card swap.  For this swap we sent supplies to a fellow design team member and then you take a picture of the elements you receive and then create a card and today we're sharing what we cam up with these supplies.

I decided to stick with using my product of the week, the Rooted in Nature bundle to create this card since I didn't get any stamped images.

I started with Mint Macaron cardstock for the cardbase and then added Basic Black cardstock for the cardfront that uses DSP from the Share What You Love Speciality Designer Series Paper.  I used the other coordinating strip of DSP and matted it with Rich Razzleberry cardstock along the bottom of the cardfront.  I used the Pearlized Doily and lightly colored it with Rich Razzleberry ink and then used the Big Shot and Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut the circle out of the Basic Black cardstock that Pamela had embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder.

I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set for the tree, which I stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on Mint Macaron cardstock and then cut it out with the Nature's Roots Framelits and attached it to the cardfront with dimensionals.  The greeting was stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Bermuda Bay ink and then I used my Paper Snips to cut out each part of the greeting and attached them to the cardfront with Mini Dimensionals.  There were still 2 pieces in my swap kit so I tied a bow using the Nature's Twine (the Mini Macaron piece) and attached it to one of the Leaves Trinkets using a glue dot and then used a glue dot to attach the trinket to the cardfront.

These are the supplies Pamela Wu sent to me.

I love the fun, bright colors in this designer series paper and it really helps provide a fresh touch to this card using outdoorsy images.  Remember anyone who places an order through this Sunday that includes the Rooted in Nature bundle (either wood or clear mount) will receive a package of the Leaves Trinkets from me for FREE!  Just make sure to use Hostess Code:  W4TZWC4X.
