Nature Walk I’m Here For You

One of my favorite things to do if I need time alone is to go for a walk or to ride my bike on the trails. There is something calming about the very presence of nature. When we go through rough times it is nice to just know that someone is there; even if they can’t do anything. This card conveys that thought and feeling with the earthy color of Early Espresso warmed up with Cherry Cobbler. The images are stamped on a Top Note Die Cut layered on a piece of Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper. It is accented with 1/2″ Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon. The butterfly is stamped in Early Espresso then its wings are sponged over with Cherry Cobbler and highlighted with Smooch. It’s body is colored in with the Early Espresso Marker. It is cut out and layered with a dimensional under the larger wing.

Nature Walk Four Frames

Basic Black and Marina Mist make a bold statement on this card. The bird cage is stamped on a Whisper White background in Basic Black. A layer of Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper anchors the bottom of the card and adds subtle birds to the background. A strip of Basic Black punched with the Scallop Trim Punch and adorned with 1/8″ Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon blends the two backgrounds together. The focal point is the bird frame from the Four Frames stamp set (which is a sneak peek from the upcoming 2011-2012  catalog) stamped in Basic Black and punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. This is layered on a Marina Mist Circle and Basic Black Scallop Circle; all of which has been pressed through the Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder giving the focal point textured interest!

Nature Walk Under Glass

The eye catching color combo of Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, and Night of Navy make this a very striking card. The Beveled Windowpane over the focal image draws your attention to this pleasing color combo layered over a Scallop Square die cut which is layered on a piece of Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper.

Nature Walk Birthday Wishes

This card is very simply designed. The Soft Suede card stock sponged with Early Espresso ink along the embossed edge from the Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder gives it a bold, masculine look. The Antique Brad adds to this look. The images are stamped in Early Espresso ink on a layer of Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper.
