ROOTED IN NATURE "FLORAL" - June 2019 Stamp Camp

Hi, Stampers!      I cannot claim the clever use of these images as my own.  I've made only a couple of changes to the original I saw, I think, on Pinterest some time ago. If you follow me on Pinterest - Stamp with Sue - you'll see I posted several new cards on my SU! Rooted in Nature board while I was looking for the original of this "floral," because I do like to give credit.  Unfortunately, no luck - maybe you'll do better.  Anyway, let's get started! Happy Stampin’! Sue Duffy ~

LOVELY AS A TREE in the Moonlight - AAAcards Game #126

Hi, Stampers!      Whenever I think of "moonlight," the current challenge on AAACards, I think of trees and especially Lovely as a Tree.  I came across this challenge site - .  I really like Clean And Simple cards, but I often have trouble paring them down, so I enter a CAS challenge once in a while for some practice, although so many of the samples I see posted there are by stampers much more talented and imaginative than me.      The sentiment is from Rooted in Nature and the trees, of course, are from Lovely as a Tree - a must in anyone's stamp collection - at least in my opinion.  The mask for the moon was made with the 1-1/2" Circle Punch. Happy Stampin’! Sue Duffy ~
