Rooted In Nature

This is a fun technique I got from Jennifer McGuire.  Everyone in the stamping world knows who Jennifer McGuire is.  She is extremely talented and makes everything look very easy.  She does these easy to follow videos so you can see how to do something step by step.  She calls this technique Step Back Stamping.  This is where the stamped images are set back from their coordinating die cuts.

To make this card I first stamped the tree from Rooted In Nature onto Whisper White A2 (5.5″ x 8.5″) cardstock folded in half with Tranquil Tide ink .  I used my Stamparatus to do this because you need to stamp it twice in the same place. Without moving the stamp I took a piece of Soft Sea Foam the same size as my whisper white card (5.5″ x 4.25″) stamped it again with my Stamparatus.  Then I cut the piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock to 1.75″ high so it is now 1.75″ x 5.5″.  You end up cutting part of the tree off which is what you want to do.  After this you take the matching die from Nature’s Roots Framelits and cut out the tree from the Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  Then you use Dimensionals to adhere the Sea Foam pieces over the Whisper White cardstock.

The sentiment is from Love What You Do.
