Rooted In Nature Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop

the stamp review crew

Hello Peaches! I'm here to participate in another fun blog hop with The Stamp Review Crew! If you're not familiar with The Stamp Review Crew , they are a group of very talented international Stampin' Up! demonstrators who get together on the first and third Monday of each month to bring you all kinds of delicious inspiration that features a different stamp set each new Monday. 

The blog hops are archived at The Stamp Review Crew blog and you'll be able to click through the hops at any time, going directly to the posts as you wish for any of the hops. Just click on the banner of this post to go to the master blog roll for this hop also. If you have already started the hop, you will have come from the lovely and creative Mickey Roberts.

Rooted in Nature Clear-Mount Bundle

For this hop, we are featuring the Rooted In Nature. I'm pretty sure this was the number one set on my pre-order wish list. This set is a HUGE set, full of so many gorgeous stamps and dies. Here's a close-up of my card for today's hop:

I began with a panel of Watercolor Paper and my Aqua Painter. I created a watercolor wash background using Shaded Spruce Ink and Lemon Lime Twist Ink. While that dried, I stamped my tree in Lemon Lime Twist Ink and used my Sponge Dauber to add a bit of Shaded Spruce to a few areas of the tree for variation. To finish 
off my card, I added some twine, a few Leaf Trinkets, and finally a few sequins from the Metallic Sequin Assortment

Well, that's my card for today's hop! Thanks so much for hopping along! I just wanted to mention to my regular followers that these coming weekly posts will be a little different. I am participating in multiple blog hops this month so that means extra inspiration for you! Next stop is the lovely and talented Tanya Boser! Check out her gorgeous blog and projects!
