Have you thought about adding Earthen Textures to your craft stash so you can make amazing cards? Watch how amazing this Stampin’ Up! craft bundle is for paper crafting!
I created 3 different card designs with the Earthen Textures bundle and I started out by using the dies in the bundle to cut out shapes from the coordinating ‘Earthen Elegance’ Designer Series Paper. Most of the dies are either vases or plants. I struggled a bit to get started but the inspiration kicked in quickly and I think you’ll appreciate the ideas I came up with.
The photos in this post follow my process for creating with the Earthen Textures bundle including the visual of how I put several stamps on a block and stamped them all at the same time. If you don’t have this bundle then I hope you’ll see how awesome it as and put it on your wish list. If you have the bundle then I hope that you make these card designs and to help you remember how to make them I’ve included a free download for you.
Earthen Textures Card Ideas: Video Tutorial
What about the Earthen Textures grabs your eye the most? The textured backgrounds, the stamped patterns, the die cut designer papers, the textured die-cuts? I can’t wait to read your thoughts!
I was inspired by the artist’s designs in the Stampin’ Up! Catalog. I used the same embossing folder for all of these Earthen Textures cards (Exposed Brick 3D Embossing Folder). I embossed both white cardstock and the designer series paper layers—I love when I can use the folders on DSP (see the Pretty Peacock layer below with the DSP embossed sample).
I stamped with 3 different colors: Pretty Peacock, Pebbled Path, and Copper Clay. It was so easy to do all the stamping first and then die-cut the images.
Earthen Textures: the fun begins!!!!
Once I had the pieces stamped and cut I started adding the vases and plants to my three cards until I had combinations for each card that I loved. I had so much fun with these Earthen Textures and it turns out that I had extra pieces—make sure you watch the YouTube Live to see how they were put to use!
I used the Paper Trimmer to cut the greetings and then added them to the card fronts. Whether you mat the greeting or not the cards look great.
