Welcome to the NC Demos Group Blog hop for August! Such a busy month, and a few are absent, but there is still lots of crafty getting done!
It is called Totally Trees, but I keep messing up and calling it Trendy Trees… because that is what they are to me.
I have been enjoying doing the little 3×3 thank you cards to send out with my Etsy Shop orders (see the link for the store at the top right of my page!)
This is a great size because when you use a 12×12 piece of whisper white, you can get 12 out of it.
That is great for multiple cards, you just figure out how many you need and divide by 12.
A dozen is a nice multiplier.
For this card, I chose the colors of Rich Razzelberry, Wild Wasabi and So Saffron.
There is a beautiful ribbon pack in the new holiday catalog starting on Sept 1st that has the Rich Razzelberry ribbon in it and I wanted to use that. And these colors are not my normal choices… but why be normal, right?
The long piece of ground was too long for my 3×3 card so I stamped one end in Wild Wasabi and then the other end below it in So Saffron.
The shapes finish off the trees and the little leaves and the grass patch were nice additions. And do you see a touch of the Wink of Stella in there? Love some sparkle!
This is the Petal Burst embossing folder from the annual catalog… LOVE IT!
And a great way to attach a layer to an embossed piece is with dimensionals, the stick great and don’t pull of the paper fibers.
Yes the colors are a different combo, but I really liked them together. Fun to try new stuff sometimes… like a set of trees that is very artsy instead of the norm. Like I said, TRENDY Trees… lol!
Keep on going with the blog hop and visit the blog of my friend, the talented Jo Anne Hewins. The whole list is below.
