Making a Difference

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   Stampin' Up is a company that gives back to the community. You might have seen the CEO Sara Douglass on the Today Show during the holidays giving away stamp sets, ink, and paper as part of the show's holiday toy drive. In the past, Stampin' Up supported the Ronald McDonald House by donating a portion of the sales of a certain stamp set to the charity. For the 2019-2020 stampin' season, Stampin' Up is donating to mental health organizations throughout the world--$3 from each purchase of the totally adorable "Nature's Beauty" set will go toward this cause. You can see the set on the inside back page of the Holiday Catalog and in one of the images on today's card.
I received this card from Jennifer Helm at the Proverbial Stampers & Friends gathering. I love the way Jennifer used a variety of circles and tree images and textures for her card. First, she stamped the deer from "Nature's Beauty" in Early Espresso Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock and cut it out with a Stitched Shape Die. She added some stamped "texture" in Crushed Curry Ink with the falling snow image from this set.

Next, Jennifer stamped the Birch Background stamp in Crumb Cake Ink onto a 4" by 5-1/4" Crumb Cake Card Stock mat. She adhered this to a Cajun Craze Card Stock card base. She embossed another piece of Cajun Craze Card Stock with the Woodland Embossing Folder and cut it out with one of the Layering Circles Dies. She adhered this directly to the card. She used the Subtle Embossing Folder to give some texture to Blackberry Bliss Card Stock and used a Layering Circles Die to cut it out. She adhered that directly to the card, too. She used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the Whisper White circle with the deer image to the card.

Finally, Jennifer used the Seasonal Layers Dies to cut leaves from Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry, and Cajun Craze Card Stock. She adhered the solid leaves to the card with a Stampin' Dimensional and used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the open leaf to the card.

Jennifer stamped the sentiment from the "Itty Bitty Greetings" set in Mossy Meadow Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch. She used Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the label to the card.

I think this design really showcases the artwork on the image from the "Nature's Beauty" set. I'm so pleased to have received Jennifer's card in the swap!
