Merry Christmas - Ringed With Nature

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super cute project to share with you using Ringed with Nature Stamp Set. The Ringed with Nature Stamp Set is in the 2022 July - December Mini Catalog and can be found on page 69. This was a super festive project and I know that you are going to love it. Here’s a look at today’s featured project and in this blog post I will give you some tips & tricks on how to recreate it as well.

How to Recreate This Card:


To start off making this festive little card you are going to stamp a piece of Basic White Cardstock that's cut at 4" x 5 1/4" with the Stacked Stone Cling Background Stamp Set with some Sweet Sorbet Classic Ink. You are then going to layer this piece of cardstock onto a piece of Sweet Sorbet Cardstock cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" before adding it to the Basic White Thick Cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/2".

After you have the card base finished it's time to work on the focal image. I started out by using a piece of Basic White Cardstock. Next you are going to stamped the sentiment first at the bottom in Sweet Sorbet Classic Ink. Next you are going to stamp the stems and leaves in the area you want the poinsettia to be. Stamp the leaves and stems in Mossy Meadow Classic Ink and even stamp some of the leaves off for second generation stamping to get a lighter shade of the Mossy Meadow Classic Ink. Add a couple of the berry images to your cluster with a little Sweet Sorbet Classic Ink.

Let's talk about the finishing touches you are going to do to finish off your festive card. After stamping the background images on to a 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of Basic White Cardstock; you are going to layer that onto a 3 3/8" x 3 3/8" piece of Sweet Sorbet Cardstock and then onto a piece of 3 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of Mossy Meadow Cardstock. When you layer the focal image onto the Mossy Meadow Cardstock layer make sure to attach it closer to the top, because you are going to tear the bottom section at an angle as shown above.

Now you are going to stamp the poinsettia from the Ringed with Nature Stamp Set on to a scrap piece of Basic White Cardstock in Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink. Use your Paper Snips to fussy cut it out. Tie a long bow with the silver thread from the Simply Elegant Trim pack and attach it to the cut out poinsettia with a Stampin' Dimensional. Attach to the center of the cluster of leaves and berries. Now you want to add about three of the smallest Champagne Basic Rhinestones in the center of the poinsettia and sprinkle a few more of the varies sizes around the card front.
