Peaceful Pines

To be perfectly honest with you, I struggle to use any card base that is not Whisper White or Very Vanilla.  I am not sure why.  I just love this card.  Seems so clean and simple – yet makes a bold impact.  

Fun tips for this card:

  • Stamp sentiment in lower right corner before embossing
  • Use mini glue dots to attach bow to tree
  • Stamp tree image and a piece of scrap before using the die to cut it out
  • Use deminsionals to raise each layer of the card

It’s a Classic – Mom!

It’s a classic!  I hate using the word retired in the Stampin’ Up! world.  It just sounds like it should be cast away – never to be seen again.  I prefer to use the word classic.  A item that may no longer be currently available in a catalog – but still hanging around your craft space.  The idea of highlighting some of my creations with classic Stampin’ Up! products is to continue to show you how you can take what product you have left and keep using it.  I’ll also share with you what you could change to use only current product.

Today’s card is made for a classic – MOM!  The classic item in this card is the Kiwi Kiss paper and ink.  You could easily use Lucky Limeade or Pear Pizzazz (although, Lucky Limeade is my preferred and favorite choice).  Ohhh…what if you changed out the word mom to…hi…or a person initials…..hmmm….I think I need to go downstairs and see what I can come up with.
