trendy trees...

Hello friends... night has fallen here in my part of the world, the little kiddo is fast asleep, the big kiddo will be shortly and the house is relatively quiet.  I decided to post a card I made this afternoon for a couple of challenges:  Dynamic Duos and CAS(e) this Sketch.



I have had this Memory Box stamp called Trendy Trees and the matching die for quite sometime and had yet to ink it up.  Sadly it was a bit forgotten!  Then my bloggy friend, Judy, made a card using the same stamp which reminded me that I need to show this little stamp some love and I thought it would make a nice card using the current sketch from CAS(e) this Sketch.  I had to change the orientation of the sketch to make it work, though.  Anywhoo.... I stamped the trees using green ink onto some green patterned paper from a WeRMemoryKeepers 6x6 pad of papers and then die cut it using the die.  I then die cut the trees from some white cardstock cut to fit the front of my yellow card base (the Dynamic Duo this week being yellow and green).   I stamped the sentiment using black ink and then adhered the white piece to the card front using foam dimensionals.  Once that was done I applied some adhesive to the back of the patterned paper trees and inserted it into the opening created by the die.  I had to had some rhinestones because for some reason this particular die has these little loops on either end that created nice little holes that I didn't want!  Despite that little mishap I quite like how the card turned out.

Thanks for stopping by.....

Hey Rosemary, this is cute. I've toyed over whether or not to get this stamp, but I may be persuaded now. Love the little rhinestone touch. Perfect! Kx

What a LOVELY...LOVELY...card, Rosemary! I love it when stamps come with matching dies. You've used this set SO beautifully! (OH, can I ever relate to having "forgotten" stamps & dies.) The rhinestones add the perfect finishing touch!
