I am loving so many of the new products in the Spring Summer Catalog – my favorite Designer Series Paper pack right now is Good Morning Sunshine – it works so well with one of my favorite new stamp sets, Trendy Trees – used together you can create some fabulous projects 🙂
I received this card in a recent swap and it was made by a very talented demonstrator called Barbara – it showcases the papers and stamps so beautifully that I couldn’t resist showing it to you – the base is one of this year’s In Colors, Kiwi Kiss – a piece of paper from Good Morning Sunshine has been cut and adhered to a piece of Pacific Point, a piece of Old Olive 1/4″ Grosgrain is tied around and these layers have been adhered to the base. The sentiment from Trendy Trees – ‘thanks so much’ – has been stamped in Kiwi Kiss ink onto the base.
The ‘Trendy Trees’ have been stamped onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Chocolate Chip, Pacific Point, Summer Sun and Kiwi Kiss inks – to make positioning the trees accurate and easy, the Stamp-a-majig is a very useful tool and can be found on pg 189 of the Catalog. Brown thread was used in a sewing machine to make a cute border around the trees.
The Whisper White piece was layered onto Chocolate Chip and then Summer Sun cardstocks and all were adhered to the base using Dimensionals to give a 3-d effect – and there you have a fun card using colors that are perfect for the warm seasons ahead 🙂
