Sheltering Tree

Sheltering Tree

apple-birthdayThis all purpose set can be changed for each seasons, just by either by stamping or using seasonal Designer Series Paper.   Let us talk about the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.  It can take you into Fall even though it has a summer feel to it.   The Happy Birthday is from the Fresh Fruit Stamp Set in Soft Suede.

Christine’s Tips:

  • Since Sheltering Tree is a Photopolymer Stamp Set, be sure to use the Piercing Mat underneath while stamping to get a crisp and clean image.
  • Keeping to Fall theme, I used only Soft Suede and Pear Pizzazz Ink, taking my cue from the colors in the Designer Series Paper.
  • I cut the Whisper White layer at 2.75″ x 3.75″ and layered that onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock measuring 3″ x 4″.
  • As always, when I have horizontally designed cards, I cut my cardstock lengthwise on the 8.5″ side for a side folding card.

Another Totally Trees!

Totally Trees!

When I get a NEW stamp set, one of the things on my agenda is to see how many ways I can use it.  Otherwise it wouldn’t be versatile.  I know that word is thrown around alot these days.  Everyone wants to get their money’s worth.  I am no different.

thinking-of-youAs you know, I love a clean and simple look to my cards.  Putting just two colors together, really makes this wonderful little set incredible.  Basic Gray and Bermuda Bay.  Thinking Of You cards are perfect to send for just because, get well and even your sympathies.

This gorgeous card makes quite a statement and it takes no time at all to complete.

Totally Trees!

Totally Trees

One of my favorite NEW stamp sets in the Holiday Catalog is Totally Trees.  This versatile set features a tree from the tropics right along side something you might want to use for your Christmas cards.

The best part is this set is perfect for year ’round stamping.

brown-trees

Here I stayed with just Early Espresso ink and made a quick background paper.   The sentiment is from You’re So Sweet and cut out with the banner framelit from the Mini Treat Bag.  One of my favorite things to do is…you guessed it-popping up with Dimensionals!  I use them whenever I can.

Be sure to use the hostess code below to receive a special treat from me.

Banners For You

Banners For You

Blue Striped Night of Navy and Whisper White make my heart go pitter patter!  This color combination is both gorgeous and spectacular at the same time.

Christine’s Tip: 

  • I like my cards quick and easy, however, keeping things to an absolute minimum works best for my busy schedule.  If you are busy like me and the rest of the world, then keep your color palette to two colors, Whisper White and one other color.
  • Even better, stamp on your pretty papers.  This one, Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper works well to do just that.
  • I love to SAVE 10% by bundling and saving.  This versatile stamp set coordinates with the Bunch of Banners Framelits!

Use the Hostess Code HVXNTG4V  when you place your order in my Online Store and I will send you a package of Thick Whisper White Baker’s Twine. Do not use the Hostess Code if you place an order of $150 or more. You will still receive the FREE Gift.

Another amazing week of getting my stamping in!  Whooo Hoooo!  I had been wanting to use my NEW bundle from Stampin’ Up!  Falling Flowers with the May Flowers Framelits.  Since it is summer, I couldn’t resist the urge the pull out the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper.  It is fun AND fresh all at the same time.  I love that I can stamp directly onto it with the Stylized Birthday Stamp.  Yes it is a single stamp designed for a large impact.
