Faith In Nature

I had a wonderful time making this card that I first saw on Cindy Hall's blog.  I was looking through the Splitcoaststampers galleries to see what people had done with the Faith In Nature set and her card leapt out at me.  Here's my version:

I stamped the pear image and coloured it in with crumb cake marker pen, just very roughly.  The dsp is from the Spice Cake range and the card is very vanilla and soft suede.  The ribbon is just a spare piece from my stash, which has nearly all gone now.  The stamp is from a set of Teddy Bo stamps that came free with my magazine a couple of months ago.  It's a very handy size and I'll probably use it a lot.  I love how this came together, but looking at it now, I wish I'd just put the square with the image on lower down, but then it might not all have fitted with the ribbon.  This card is the reason I bought some pear pizzazz cardstock and fell in love with it, but, too late, my friend! 
Never mind, I'll be getting my hands on a copy of the new Stampin Up! catalogue very, very soon and I'm sure there'll be some stunning stuff in there.  Excited?  You bet I am!
See you all soon,
Have a great weekend

  1. There's some absolutely lovely stuff in the new catalogue! You'll love it! This is a smashing card. I am a big fan of Pear Pizzaz too - it's just a lovely shade of green. I shall miss it when it retires. This ribbon complements your colour scheme beautifully.

  3. This is such a lovely card. The colours you have chosen are really subtle and muted and complement each beautifully. I love the Faith in Nature stamps but haven't got round to using mine yet x x
