Totally Trees

IMG_3308Happy Labor Day!  I do have to say a three day weekend is ALWAYS a good thing!  I’ve had a GREAT weekend doing some stamping – getting a little ahead on challenges and just having some fun!

One of my ‘must have’ set from the new holiday mini was the Totally Trees set…I LOVE anything with trees!  Here is a quick and easy card.

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, run through the Softly Falling embossing folder and add to card front
  • Rich Razzleberry – 4 5/8 x 2 7/8, add to card front on an angle

  • Whisper White – 2 3/4 x 4 1/2, stamp trees using Basic Grey Archival, circle using Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party, cone using Sweet Sugarplum, grass using Pear Pizzazz and greeting using Rich Razzleberry
  • It’s difficult to see on the picture but I took the backing off some Perfect White Accents and added the clear dots to the trees using Tombow Glue

And it’s a new fresh look for fall!  And if you are looking for some fresh ideas…

Here’s the details…

  • Delightful Dijon – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
