My New Favorite Set


Okay, I haven't had that much time to play with Trendy Trees yet, but I'm totally loving it. This card in particular makes me smile, especially because I realized that VersaMagic Aquatic Splash ink is almost a perfect match for PTI's aqua cardstock. Love that!

Simplicity Tip: For two-step stamps, make permanent positioner sheets for your stamp positioner using left-over transparencies from clear stamp packaging and StazOn ink. Store the sheets in the box with the stamps. You save yourself lots of time and heartache this way. (BTW, just passing this tip along from someplace on SCS...I'm nowhere near clever enough to think of this on my own ;-)

Supplies: PTI white and aqua cardstock; versamagic aquatic splash and sahara sand ink; SU Trendy Trees and Paper Salon stitch set; SEI button; craft floss; dimensionals, glue dot

  2. I love this! I love how the tree layers are different sizes, I wouldn't have thought to do that. The stitching stamp is perfect, and I love the button. The whole thing is just stunning!

  10. Just wanted you to know... I fell in love with your blog and CAS stamping style! Saw you went to WSU. I call Wichita, KS home myself. My younger son went to WSU his freshman year in fact.
    I've got to know how you achieved the double dotted line. Is that a stamp?
