I think Rooted in Nature is one of my favorite stamp sets in the 2018-2019 catalog. It has all the qualities of the beloved Lovely as a Tree with the added benefits of coordinating Framelits. It’s great for masculine cards. It can be used for Christmas and really any season. I shared a similar card a while ago, but hadn’t made a video. I made it at my in-house SIP Together, so it was time to make the video.

I just love this card. I love the color combination. I love the Hold on to Hope Stamp Set and coordinating dies. The clean and simple card on the left is very pretty. It does not require a Big Shot and is really pretty simple. You could step up the card by cutting out the stamped images. I guess you could do a simplified version with Paper Snips, but don’t they look beautiful with the detailed die cuts? And then cutting the Flirty Flamingo layer with the Window Box die and adding the detailed cross really makes a huge difference.

I designed, wrote the instructions, and demonstrated this card before the new catalog went live. You can still make this card with current products. The printable directions call for the 2016-2018 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers, but the Flirty Flamingo marker is now part of the Brights Collections. And the ribbon I used has been discontinued, but I listed two others you could use instead.

I designed these cards while recording the video… not usually a good idea. I’m still trying to figure out camera and work space arrangements at my new “Craft Wall.” My thoughts are on the two couples facing difficult times. And I’d never used the stamp set or the Framelits before. Video production quality is not good, but I think you can hear the delight as I worked with the stamp set and Framelits for the first time. I really love the detailed cross piece, though I think I’d recommend the Precision Base Plate on the Big Shot. The spray of flowers was really easy to work with and I think it’s really beautiful!
