Earthen Elegance by Stampin’ Up

I will be honest. The Earthen Elegance Suite Collection was not initially on my radar to purchase. However, after seeing what some people had created with the suite, I decided to try it.

Today’s Video Tutorial

First, I stamped a bunch of different images in various colors. Second, I cut out those shapes and other die cuts. And lastly, I started putting some cards together. The first two steps really helped to get my inspiration going! I highly recommend doing this if you aren’t sure where to start.

Another thing that I like to do is look at other stamp and die sets to see if there is anything that would work well with my chosen suite or set. For example, in today’s card, I pulled in the Darling Details dies. And I even ended up using the negative piece instead of the main die cut.

More Earthen Elegance Cards

I created cards that would mostly fall into the Casual, Avid, and Artfully Avid categories with this suite. What category do you most identify with? I feel that I can fall into any and/or all of these categories on any given day. Don’t limit yourself! Which card is your favorite?

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope to see you again soon. As always, remember to be kind, send a card, and do something creative!

Love You Always

Today we are looking at a few items from the Love You Always Suite of products. These products could be easily skimmed over while you browse the catalog. However, this would be a tragic mistake! There are so many products that have absolutely no connection to Valentine’s Day.

Please don’t ever be afraid to take products from a suite and use them for a totally unrelated project. In this case, we are taking something intended for Valentine projects and we are making thank you and sympathy cards.

My first three cards were made by simply adding a sentiment. And they are stunning! The foiling of the papers really does stand out. Alternatively, I took those same three basic cards and added just a little bit of ribbon or trim. I kept the change subtle but this set of cards are lovely as well. It took me a very short amount of time to make cards that look like they took hours to make.
