The Pace of Nature

Today's card is for the current Color Throwdown (CTD359) challenge with colors of Orange, Light Blue, Dark Blue and Kraft.

I broke out another new set of stamps and dies, stamping two of the leaves from the Simon Says One with Nature and then cut out with the matching dies from the Nature set. I also stamped the small leaf and used the matching die to create a cut out in the textured cardstock background panel which was cut with a Lil Inker Designs stitched mat and also a layer of craft foam. After all images were colored with Copic Markers, I assembled onto the background panel attaching the largest leaf with craft foam. The smallest leaf image was slipped underneath the craft foam and background layers. The sentiment was stamped at the bottom of the panel with Blueberry ink.

Products: Simon Says stamps and dies, Basic Grey dp, PTI and Bazzill cs, Lil Inker Designs die, MFT ink, Copic Markers
Copics: W00, E81, YR0000, YR01, YR14, B0000, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99

And since I created this card with some never before used stamps and dies, I am entering this in Darnell's famous NBUS challenge (#5).


  1. Nice card Nancy. I like your choice of stamps and paper and certainly the colors in the throw down.

  6. I hope you won that Color Throwdown challenge with this brilliant card, Nancy, or you were robbed! I love how perfectly CASlicious it is!! Thank you for playing in my NBUS Challenge #5 ~ so long ago! I'm sorry that my nursing duties have made me so late to come by and thank you. Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell
