Festival of Trees

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by, I'm honored to have you here! I must, once again, apologize for my absence this week. In addition to the 80 cards I mentioned in my last post, I've since created another 60 using the Wondrous Wreath set. So that's around 160 finished this week, by far my most productive week EVER!

The designs I'm sharing with you today were created using the gorgeous Festival of Trees stamp and punch bundle from Stampin' Up!'s seasonal catalog.

I started by stamping the chosen tree, which is one of 5 in the set, in both Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive inks onto Whisper White and Very Vanilla card and punching them out with the punch. I then cut the layers of Whisper White, Very Vanilla and Cherry Cobbler card and rounded the corners using the reverse punch of the Envelope Punch Board, as well as those of the matching card blanks that I'd folded.

I then stamped the tree three times in one of the gorgeous greens onto each of the white and vanilla panels and added the sentiment from the Wondrous Wreath set in Cherry Cobbler ink. After adhering the layers, I added 2 of the punched trees in the same color as the the others, popping them up on Stampin' Dimensionals for some added height...

To complete the cards I stamped the tree and sentiment, again from the Wondrous Wreath set, inside each of the cards...

After such a busy week, I'm off out tomorrow to make the most of the gorgeous unseasonably warm weather and I'm headed to the nature reserve were the pic below was taken; an appropriate ending to a week when I've been seeing plenty of trees and wreaths :)

Whatever you're doing this weekend, have a great one.
