Perfect for Autumnal cards - Rooted in nature from Stampin Up

The days are becoming cooler and the nights darker as Autumn is upon us. I actually really like Autumn, I love the leaves changing colour but i also love getting cosy at night with the log burner roaring too. 

'Rooted in Nature' is a lovely set, one of my go to stamp sets used to be 'Lovely as a tree' but this set is a great alternative. What's more it also comes with matching dies so no more fussy cutting required, yay!



For this card i've taken a piece of the beautiful 'Nature's poem' dsp and used it to cover my card base. 
A strip of different dsp is mounted onto some 'Tranquil Tide' cardstock and placed towards the bottom of the card. 

Using 'Soft Suede' and 'Tranquil Tide' inks i have stamped some trees, leaves and the tree stump. To get lighter tones of the same colours i simply stamped off onto some scrap paper before stamping onto my 'Whisper White' card. The 'Nature's Roots' framelits make it super easy to cut these out.
I ran a couple of the leaves through the big shot onto 'Copper foil' too just to add a different texture to the card.

Using a mixture of  tombo and dimensionals i layered the die cut images, overlapping in places until i was happy with the finished look. 
I really like the way it has turned out.
