I’m super excited to be joining the Stamp Review Crew this month! What’s that? What is the Stamp Review Crew? We are an international group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators that gets together to do a blog hop on the first and third (and sometimes on a fifth) Monday of each month. For each hop we choose a single stamp set to put center stage, and then we work our creative magic! All of the hops are archived on the Stamp Review Crew blog.  So, if you every need some extra inspiration, head on over HERE and check them out.  If you are following the hop in order, you should have arrived here from Anne at The Stampin’ Schach.

For this hop, we are putting Rooted in Nature in the spotlight.  What a beautiful set!  I got to work with this set this spring when I made display samples for Stampin’ Up! On Stage Milwaukee.  You can see some of those projects in this post.

This time I decided to go for a bolder look by stamping the leaves in Granny Apple Green and Tranquil Tide.

Be strong - Center Stage Stamping

I was going for the feeling of falling leaves so I kept them more sparse at the top and layered them heavily at the bottom. The Wood Texture DSP made me think of a fence.  I did use one retired item – the clear epoxy dots.  I just loved the idea of dew drops on the cut out leaves.

I’m also sharing my absolute favorite project I have made with this set.  This scrapbook page features one of my favorite pictures of my two daughters from my oldest’s wedding last summer.  I am so proud to be Momma Bear to these two beauties.

Be Strong - Center Stage Stamping

Well, if you started at the beginning, I am the last stop on the blog hop.  I hope you have enjoyed all the great projects that have shone a spotlight on Rooted in Nature! From here, you can head back to Anne’s blog or go on to Heidi’s(the start of the blog hop). If you started somewhere in the middle, make sure you check out all the other blogs.  There are some fantastic projects out there!

That’s a wrap for now!  Happy Stamping!

  1. Mary, your scrapbook page is just stunning. What a beautiful frame for your daughters. The falling leaves card is just gorgeous. Love that two greens that you chose.

    • Thanks, Mickey! Who would have thought Granny Apple Green and Tranquil Tide? I got the idea from the SU! Holiday catalog, page 35 with the Wishing You Well set.

  2. Wow Mary. What a way to kick off! Welcome to the crew. These are gorgeous. The way you’ve stamped the leaves on you first card is so effective.

  3. Your scrapbook page is divine (beautiful girls you have there!), and I positively ADORE the color combination you used for the leaves on the card. Welcome to The Crew!!!
