I have not shared the Nature’s Beauty stamp set very much.  It is on the last page of the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  Stampin’ Up! is donating $3.00 from every stamp set sale to Mental Health Organizations.  Besides the great charity surrounding the set, it is a really beautiful set.  So I felt it needed some more Love from me!



All but the sentiment is from the Nature’s Beauty stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Merry Moose stamp set.

I went back to an “old school” technique for the trees.  I wanted a Fall look to them.  So I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color on the Red Rubber stamps of the trees.  The trees are actually two different stamps, a double tree and a single tree.  I used Merry Merlot, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, and Old Olive to color the trees.  I stamped the leaves on the ground using Old Olive, Cajun Craze, and Mango Melody all stamped off once first.  There are green “hills” on the stamps, so I added a few more with the fine tip of the Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker.  I really hate that you cannot purchase a single marker any longer. 🙁

The little racoon guy is stamped in Early Espresso and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  As a final touch for the scene, I wrapped Old Olive Linen Thread around two of the corners.

Thank you so much for checking in today.  I hope you will give some love to older techniques, or at least some you h ave not used in a while.  Tomorrow is the monthly InKing Royalty Blog Hop.  Please come by and Hop Along with us.
