I hope you’re enjoying some crafty time this weekend. Here’s another Product Premier Post for your inspiration.

Did you know that the images on the top layers of these cards are cocoa beans? I actually looked up a picture of a cocoa bean and was amazed at the accuracy of Stampin’ Up!’s concept designers’ drawings. The Product Suite I’m showcasing today is called (and appropriately named), Nature’s Sweetness! It’s on pages 40-43 in the new January-April 2024 Mini Catalog.

I’m featuring the Notes of Nature Bundle, and the star of my cards is the Nature’s Sweetness Specialty Designer Series Paper. This Bundle and patterned paper pack was on top of my Wish List.

You can click on the thumbnail images at the end of this post for the product details.

  • I cut a Pecan Pie cardstock card base 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored it at 5 1/2″.
  • The Pretty Peeacock cardstock layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.
  • The cocoa bean patterned paper layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″. You can click on the blue botton below to download the PDF Tutorial for tips on how to cut the patterned paper layers.
  • I stamped the sentiment onto a die cut Deckled Circle.
  • The element cluster under the circle combines three strps of the Faux Leather Trim (part of the Nature’s Sweetness Product Suite), and a Pretty Peacock die cut leaf sprig.
  • I die cut the Pretty Peacock element using one of the dies in the Notes of Nature Bundle.
  • The Pecan Pie ink splatter on the patterned paper layer was my inspiration to add some Pretty Peacock ink splatter.

These cards were quick and easy. There are two sheets of the cocoa bean drawings in the Nature’s Sweetness Specialty Designer Series Paper. By strategically cutting the patterned paper, you will have 12 card layers. You can coordinate the cocoa bean drawings with cardstock layers, or cut them to create a 3 1/2″ x 5″ note card set. Wouldn’t this be a beautiful gift?

So, cut a few cocoa bean drawings, add a cardstock layer and a “leather” element cluster, splatter some ink, and celebrate the sweetness of nature!
