Stampin' Up Rooted in Nature Happy Birthday Card


Today's card features Stampin' Up Rooted in Nature along with Stampin' Up In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.  I created this masculine card to play along in Paper Players Card Challenge.

I started out with a Very Vanilla panel and placed it on my Stamparatus.  I centered the big oak tree stamp and inked it up with some Early Espresso ink.  I only inked up the tree trunk to start out. Once I had the base of the tree stamped, I inked up the leaves area with Bumblebee ink.  I stamped it again.  I then added some Cinnamon Cider and Mango Melody with a sponge dabber to add different colors.

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Rustic Retreat stamp set on a piece of Very Vanilla.  I die cut a sheet of Stampin Up Brushed Metallic with Stampin' Up Stitched Rectangle.  

I adhered a strip of In Good Taste DSP to a strip of Early Espresso and adhered them to the bottom of my Very Vanilla panel.  

I added some Stampin' Dimensionals to my sentiment and die cuts and adhered them to the center of the card.

I completed the card on the inside with a sentiment from Stampin' Up Peaceful Moments in Early Espresso.  I stamped leaves from Stampin' Up Rooted in Nature with Bumblebee ink sponged with Cinnamon Cider and Mango Melody.


  1. What a great stamp set to use for this the way you combined the colors and the DSP is perfect! You can't go wrong with leaves and trees, LOL! Thanks for playing with our masculine challenge at the Players this week!

  2. Wood and trees! Perfectly perfect masculine birthday, Tara. I love it! Thanks for sharing your project with us this week at The Paper Players! :)
