Wood you be my friend

2017_08_12IMG_2337 This card was the easiest one I have done in a while but I just wanted to showcase the Stampin Up Wood Textures DSP #144177.  All the papers speak for themselves and need nothing more than a sentiment to complete a very masculine card.  The sentiment is from the Sheltering Tree #137163 Stampin Up stamp set.

Lazy Days of Summer

2017_08_10_lazydayIMG_2342 In case you did not know, today is national lazy day.  So I guess that gives us the right to kick back and do nothing. I did not intentionally make this card with lazy day in mind but it is perfect to go with the day. Life is truly a beautiful day when there is sunshine, a drink in a red solo cup and a lounge chair.  Perfect ingredients to kick back and people watch! This card features the Color Me Autumn DSP that is now retired from Stampin Up.  For the main panel, I created the scene using the swoosh for the dirt from the  Sheltering Tree # 137163, the chair, drink, and sentiment from the Colorful Seasons #143726 and the sun is from the Swirly Bird #141749 stamp sets all from Stampin Up. The extra bit of yumminess on this card is the new 1/4 inch copper trim from Stampin Up.  It is so wonderful to work with because of the loose weave and zig zag stitching!

Friendship is a sheltering tree


The Stampin Up Sheltering Tree #137163 photopolymer stamp set is my favorite set in the current Stampin Up annual catalog.  It is perfect for creating the perfect “friendship-scapes” for all seasons. Today’s card is a simple design but packs a lot of punch with the finished card.

Autumn Friendship card


The fall colors are past their peak in central Ohio  but fall is still in the air.  I created the background using the sweet little leaves from the Stampin Up Among the eBranches #139823 in an array of harvest colors.  The main panel “Friendship-scape was created using the absolutely spectacular Sheltering Tree stampset #137163.  I stapled the sentiment to the top layer using the Stampin Up mini stapler. I love love the realistic look that comes from this stamp set.  Cant wait to create other landscapes with this all seasons stamp set.
