Inspired by Nature


More snow!  I can't believe we are getting more snow!  The last winter storm dumped 14 inches…now we could get anywhere between 4 to 8 inches.  Schools have already called off today.  I'm ready for SPRING!

My Technique's Class last week made this card using the technique, Newspaper Reveal, from Technique Junkies!  I'm showing you because it also fits my LateNightStampers Design Team Challenge for Who's the Boss…embossing techniques!  It is fun stamping and recycling at the same time…we always have tons of newspapers around the house.


The base of the card is Old Olive with a strip of designer paper from Tall Tales and I added a strip of Close to Cocoa punched with the Pinking Hearts Border punch along the left side.  Stampin' Up!'s Inspired by Nature image was used for the Newspaper Reveal technique.  I layered it on So Saffron and wrapped the Barely Banana striped Ribbon around it and tied.  I cut the tag from Lots of Tags Sizzlet Pack with the Big Shot and So Saffron cardstock, then stamped Happy Birthday from Stampin' Up!'s Well Scripted on the tag and added two small Clear Rhinestone Brads on top and bottom.


It's a fun technique and my stampers really liked it!


Since it is snowing today, I plan on staying home and stamping all day!  Woohoo!
