Made to Match

While I was doing my "blurfing" last week, I came across Ilina's blog where she created an adorable card using the sketch at SplitCoast Stampers. I had to CASE her, because her card was just SO cute! I do have the Fox and Friends set, but I decided to use Trendy Trees.

Here are the cards I made:
I stamped the trees using Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip Ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock. These stamps are wood mounted, so I used my Stamp-a-majig to get the tree trunk in just the right spot. The sentiments (also from Trendy Trees) are stamped in Certainly Celery on Very Vanilla Cardstock and then punched using the Word Window punch. The sentiments are matted on coordinating colours using the Modern Label punch. Both the images and the sentiments are mounted on the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

What do you think?

STAMPS: Trendy Trees
INK: Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip
PAPERS: Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgundy and Very Vanilla Cardstock; Welcome Neighbours and Patterns Pack DSP
ACCESSORIES: Stamp-a-majig, Mat Pack, Paper Piercer

Happy Stampin '!

  4. Love the clean cut feel to these, and it's really cool to see how the same card can look so different with different colours.
