Beautiful wildlife cards with Nature's Beauty

Stampin Up Nature's Beauty Helen Read Allthingsstampy

This stamp set is ideal for nature-lovers and, as yesterday was World Wildlife Day, it seems an appropriate time to share.

It’s also appropriate because these projects, inspired by Paula Dobson, were among my Stampy Buffet projects back in January, and I’ve just opened registration for my next card buffet event, which takes place in May.

The stamp set is Nature’s Beauty, which was launched in last year’s Autumn/Winter Catalogue but is still available as it is on the Carryover List. Even better, £2 from every sale will go to MIND, or a mental health charity within your own market, if you’re outside of the UK.

Allthingsstampy Stamping tips from Helen Read
Notice the positioning of the animals on these cards. The rabbit sits on the left of the circle and looks to the right, while the fox sits on the right of the circle and looks to the left. Notice, too, the position of the circles on the cards.

Don’t worry, writing it down makes it sound more complicated than it really is. 
The simple formula is that both animals are looking into the circle and into the card. If they were positioned differently, they’d be looking off the edge of the card and, trust me, they just wouldn’t look right. I know I always say rules are there to be broken and they are, but some rules are there for a reason!
