Spotlight on Spotlight on Nature

spotlight on nature

This pretty card was made with the new Spotlight on Nature stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  It’s a beautiful stamp stet that can be stamped with a black ink, like Stampin’ Up!’s Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured with Blends markers  (see more about Blends here) or Pencil Crayons.

SSpotlight on Nature Bundle

Spotlight on Nature is a great stamp set to get if you are brand new to stamping as it has a main image, some greetings and a couple of images you can use for backgrounds.  And you can choose to leave a greeting off your card, like this idea, so that you can use it for multiple occasions like birthdays, thank you, thinking of  you, Happy Mother’s Day and more.

I also love that the images from Spotlight on Nature are quick and easy to colour when stamped.

Colours used on this card are: Poppy Parade,  Parakeet Party and Daffodil Delight.  See the complete list of supplies at the end of this post.

The cardbase and the background of the card on Very Vanilla cardstock. Very Vanilla is a great alternate to Basic White as it is still light enough to stamp on, but it also just changes the look a bit.  And it is perfect with the red and yellow hues on this card.

Here’s some brief directions on how to make this card.  By the way I give complete directions in my newsletter every week for two project ideas.  Get signed up for my newsletter HERE.
