Stamp sets usually have a theme and if you use the stamps according to the theme you can create a great project. But sometimes I like to do something different. What about you?
Rooted In Nature is a wonderful new stamp set with trees and leaves and sentiments. It tends toward a masculine card or a forest or fall themed card.

But today is the first day of summer and it’s time for light green and new growth! So I used Lemon Lime Twist – our bright and vibrant fresh green! And I paired it with my favorite Berry Burst Ruffled Ribbon 🙂
Now we have a pretty summer card! I think it will brighten anyone’s day, don’t you?
You’re going to see lots more of this wonderful stamp set. I think it’s going to be a real favorite!!
You ARE a blessing to me ~ all of my blog readers are such a blessing to me! Thank YOU for reading my blog and looking at my little creations here on the web 🙂
Today I want to show you this Very Vintage Host Set. What is a Host Set? It’s a special stamp set only available to “Hosts” – those who either order $150 or more, or gather a group of friends who together order $150 or more. Hosts sets aren’t free, but they are significantly discounted. For example, this clear mount stamp set is only $13.50 (the wood mount set is $18).
Pretty Pointer: Use the watercolor stamp from the Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set ~ use it anywhere! Here I’ve stamped it behind the flowers to bring attention to them. This is one of those stamps that will be a go-to for me and you’ll see me using it often! I recommend it to you to bring a modern look to your cards without having to actually watercolor!
Why don’t you gather a few friends and family together, fix a little snack, and show them our awesome new catalog? Encourage them to order a few things, add your order, and in no time you will reach the $150 minimum (before tax and shipping). You could also email me and we might even be able to do a Facebook Live event for your friends and family, and I will share some of my creations! These are just a few ideas to help you get this fabulous Very Vintage Host Set 🙂 Email me at [email protected] and we can figure something out!

This stamp set and punch work together perfectly! The stamps cover most reasons for sending a card (happy birthday, thinking of you, thanks, etc.) Just stamp, punch, add to a card base and you’re done!
For my card I placed my punched label over a piece of Whisper White card stock embossed with the Lovely Floral Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love this embossed flower, it makes a nice background for the sweet thank you label.
You may wonder how I created the label with the flower and leaves protruding out. Actually it was easy! I stamped the label four times, three times out of Petal Pink card stock and once out of Lemon Lime Twist card stock I used Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. One Petal Pink image was punched with the Darling Label Punch, one image was used to fussy cut the sentient and set aside, and the flowers on the last of the Petal Pink images were colored with a Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Write Marker and then cut out with Paper Snips. The leaves on the Lemon Lime Twist image were also snipped with Paper Snips. I layered all the pieces together to create a three-dimensional label!
So, I bought this punch box just for myself 🙂 but it would also make a beautiful gift for any crafter, or any crafter-to-be!

All of the images are adorable, but I really love this one where the kangaroo has a baby koala bear in its pouch!!! Love, love!
For my card today I used the beautiful new yellow called Pineapple Punch. I especially love the 1/8″ grosgrain ribbon ~ it makes such a sweet tiny bow!
