Amazing Organic Grace

Stampin up organic grace 2

Let's face it.  The hostess sets in Stampin' Up!'s Fall/Winter Idea Book and Catalog are fantastic.  There isn't a single set I wouldn't mind owning (and I'm working on making a sweep :)  Especially refreshing are the Level 1 options, the easiest to achieve and easy on the eyes.  The entire catalog is available for download on my right side bar . . . simply click on the cover with a butterfly.   If you prefer the "real" thing, click here to order a copy via priority mail.

Stampin up organic grace stem
Today's post features the fern stamp from Organic Grace (Hostess Level 1).  My "inkspiration" for this card was from Splitcoast Featured Stamper Kokirose (Splitcoast Challenge FS81) and her lovely design.  To begin, I stamped the fern twice in Old Olive Ink on Very Vanilla card stock.  The second fern was snipped out and layered over the first.  The corners were cropped with a Ticket Corner Punch as were the attached mats of Sage Shadow and Old Olive.

The 3.5 x 3.5" square panel of Sage Shadow card stock was given a gorgeous design using the new Bella Toile Background.  TIP:  Sage Shadow ink on the matching card stock offers a soft tone on tone appeal.  The corners are pierced and layers of Old Olive and Very Vanilla card stock follow.

The Sage Shadow textured card base is 5.5 x 4.25", scored at the top.  TIP:  For a classy touch, I  snipped the bottom corners (front and back) with a Corner Rounder Punch.  It's topped with Stampin' Up!'s Windsor Knot Designer Paper (splendid small patterns for layering), also rounded on the bottom.

The final accents include the newly released Sage Shadow 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon and the "thanks so much" sentiment from Pocket Silhouettes.  I shaped up the sentiment using the small oval punch. A 1 x 1" square of Old Olive peeks from behind the Hodgepodge Hardware Styled Silver Label Holder and Brads.  TIP:  For a snug fit below label holders, I pumped up the olive card stock using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The sentiment was adhered with dimensionals.

  1. I agree, those hostess sets are all fantastic, much better than the last catty. This is a beautiful card. . .tfs.

  2. What a beautiful card. You truly are the punch queen because nobody else would have thought of doing that with the oval punch.

  3. So very pretty. You used my most favorite background stamps of all time; Bella Toile! Anything toile for me is a good thing! I wouldn’t have thought of sage shadow and old olive either. Nice combo!

  4. What a delightful card! The patterened paper is so pretty. I like the way you layered the sentiment over the hardware. Different, and it looks great!

  5. I’m a big fan of sage shadow, so I love the colors you’ve chosen…but what strikes me the most is your ingenius use of the hodgepodge! I would’ve never thought of that!!

  6. So lovely and elegant! The color combo is wonderful. This would also make a very soothing sympathy card. Love the versatility!
