Some love for a tree

>> Friday, March 20, 2009

Man! Is it already FRIDAY!? How does that happen?! Especially when i have cards to post. hahah. Well, it has been a busy week i suppose.

I've been playing a bit this week with the Swirly Tree from Paper Makeup Stamps. Its a fun tree. I'm proud of it.

FIRST, this card was created for the FREE class at chic fil a (for those in the are in the area - wednesday morning, 10:30-11:30 on Pelham rd... fun stuff!). The ladies who are often NON stampers, really thought this was a fun card. It was easy, while LOOKING complex. :)

I got the idea for this card off of Christi's super fab card here It's not exactly a CASE, BUT i totally got the idea of using the swirlie tree to create a background! Her card is AMAZING!

First i had everyone stamp the tree in some close to cocoa ink and we stamped it just around the border. This was easier than creating an entire sheet of background paper. Then we swapped out our brown ink for some light pink (pink pirouette) ink and stamp the tree over a smaller sheet of paper. We stamped our sentiment (a clear stamp from CTMH) over the top of the pink tree. Easy Peasy! The mat is cut from a nestabilities die (which i had done before the class... not quite enough room at chic fil a for all the tools!) and then it's popped up using some foam squares with a piece of ribbon lying underneath. You can see a closer look here...

So this card was done on tuesday and i'm uploading it friday. WOOPS! Now i have to upload my other tree card. hehe. Which you may have already seen because it's actually going to be the post above this one. :)
