Close to Nature

I was able to use all four stamps of the "Close to Nature" Stampin' Up! set on two cards and will share them both with you today.

For the first one, I simply stamped three of the images with Close to Cocoa ink on ivory cardstock. I carefully trimmed right along the edges of the squares and mounted them on foam squares. The sentiment is from a Papertrey Ink set and is also stamped with Close to Cocoa. I matted with Close to Cocoa cardstock.
Here is the fourth stamp from the set. I stamped with Memento black ink and colored with Copics. I added Stickles to the flower, but I don't think you can really see that. Again, foam squares make the image stand out. The sentiment is from PTI.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

That is a very nice set of stamps. You should use it more often. Your cards are beautiful!

Oh, I love these! Wow! The first one, especially -- wow! Easy peasy with no coloring, too. Great way to show off the images!

Love them both! The first one would really make a good card for the guys too.....or anyone!

I love both cards. But I really like the card that you used the Close to Cocoa card stock and ink. What a soft looking card. So pretty.
