July 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop - Sketch - Rooted In Nature Card | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

Today I am hopping along with the 2018 Kre8tors group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators. This month I have moved up north in Washington state for a few weeks after which we will head to Eastern Washington for the rest of the summer. It is so lush and green where we are that I chose to make a nature card in honor of the local greenery. This month's projects are based on the provided sketch:  

Here are some dimensions we were also provided to use as needed.  
I used the first three measurements, and from there my layers became more organic based on the focal piece E that I chose which is a leaf.

The embossed mat is Garden Green cardstock. Garden Green and Crumb Cake Many Marvelous Markers were used to color the focal leaf. All of the stamped images are from the Rooted In Nature bundle which includes matching dies for most of the stamps. The log round was fussy cut electronically and the stitching around the square was also done electronically.

The stitched white square is framed with a thin Crumb Cake mat. The log round is Crumb Cake ink with sponged Soft Suede ink edges. I added two vellum elements, a sprig and three leaves. I heat embossed them in silver and gold and tacked them under the Soft Suede strip with mini dots.

The finishing touches include linen thread wrapped and tied in a bow as well as some tiny pebbles that I carefully selected from the Tranquil Textures Sprinkles embellishments. Included is a video showing these sprinkles up close so you can see the variety of items come in the package of sprinkles I also demonstrate how I add the sprinkles to projects.

I hope you like my project. Don’t forget to leave a comment before you hop to Rebecca and see her lovely project. If you get lost along the hop, you can use the Roll Call List below to help guide you along.

As a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I am here for you. I would love to be your demonstrator if you do not have one. I have an extensive channel on YouTube with a large mix of videos on papercrafting and the full time RV life style. Fresh YouTube content is uploaded weekly. I seek out inspiration and new techniques by participating in challenges, blog hops and various demonstrator communities so I can bring you relevant content on my blog.

I actively use Stampin' Up!'s very popular Paper Pumpkin monthly subscription kits and create alternative videos each month just as soon as the kit arrives. Using my monthly host code will net you thank you gifts for every purchase you make. You can place your order using my online store, or feel free to contact me if you would like me to place your order. Don't hesitate to reach out should you need any assistance. I look forward to being your crafting angel!

If you are looking for a low pressure sales experience where you work at your own pace doing what you love, becoming an independent demonstrator is a great option. If you are looking to get a discount on Stampin' Up!s great product line you can become a hobby demonstrator. I am growing a non-location specific team of demonstrators. I utilize on-line tools to communicate and share business knowledge and creative skills as well as to provide a positive working and creating environment for new recruits. Consider joining the fun!
