Stamp Focus: A Walk in the Woods Stamp Set

by Virginia Lu

Hello, friends! It’s Virginia here. I am super excited to share some ideas with you using the large background stamp “A Walk in the Woods” stamp set.

You might think why would I NEED another background stamp…? Well, this one is not like the other! For one thing, this stamp measures 5 1/2″x 5 1/2″ and is more than enough to cover the entire card front. The details in the woodgrain allow you to create a variety of projects – from unique and rustic to elegant and beautiful. Let’s get right to my 3 cards!

Card #1: You Make My Heart Happy

Techniques: Stamping, Embossing, Inlaid Die-cutting

Firstly, I stamped “A Walk in the Woods” onto the entire cardstock in Espresso Crisp Dye Ink. I then stamped the image from Weekend Doodles with Embossing Ink and then white-embossed the image with Pure White Embossing Powder.

I then die cut the floral image with the Weekend Doodles Die Set. To add some depth, I stacked 3 more pieces of die-cut and popped up the image. You can absolutely skip this step, but I  thought the continuity of the woodgrain looks awesome underneath the white-embossed flowers.

This design reminded me of the carving on trees because it is so playful. I reached for Enamel Dots and Golden Edge Washi Tape for the embellishment.

Card #2: Congrats to the Parents-To-Be

Techniques: Multi-color stamping, Inlaid die-cutting, Embossing, Die-cutting
Altenew-aWalkInThe Woods-HalfToneStars-Virginia#2Since woodgrain is timeless and is always trendy, why not use it for baby-related designs? Here I created a baby shower card with soft and pastel colors. With the woodgrain well positioned in my MISTI, I stamped it with Sunray, Wisteria, Iceberg, and Baby Pink.  I then die cut the entire piece with Halftone Stars Nesting Dies (see below).

To spark some joy in this playful creation, it is not complete without adding Enamel Stars and silver strings!

Techniques: Multi-step stamping, Stamping on Patterned paper, Embossing on Vellum

Altenew-aWalkInThe Woods-OrnateFoliage-Virginia#2A Walk in the Woods Stamp Set is also great for adding textures! By white-embossing the stamp on Vellum Translucent Paper, you can immediately create this white-on-white texture like no other!Altenew-aWalkInThe Woods-OrnateFoliage-Virginia#3I stamped the focal point Ornate Foliage in Vanilla Cream, Chamomile, Sunray, Baby Pink, and Magenta. The sentiment was stamped in a gray patterned paper from Essential Rock Collection 6×6  Paper Pack. I am still swooning over that background!

Looking at the Walk in the Woods stamp set, I would have never thought that you could get such different looks from this set. A traditional wood grain card in browns is the look I would have gone for, but would have never thought of trying the wood grain in pastels or in white. I like the pastel and white embossed vellum the best of the cards.
