4 Trees Birthday
When working with Trendy Trees set, I always seem to use lots of colors and have to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig so it pays to make several cards at a time. I did a few of these yesterday for our birthday stash and for OWH. I think they make good masculine cards. That Sweet Pea DSP just keeps on giving.
The center piece of brown is Close-to-Cocoa stamped with Chocolate Chip from a new set of 'stitching stamps' I picked up. This is supposed to look like grosgrain ribbon. It gives a nice little tone-on-tone visual texture.
The layout is from Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge this week. I flipped it on its side and stamped the trees purposefully off center.
It's a rainy Friday here in NC but we are hoping for a pretty day tomorrow. My Mother and I are planning a little shopping trip in Charlotte. She is fun to shop with as she has such wonderful and somewhat unconventional taste. We are both the type of shoppers who can cover a lot of ground in a little time. We can walk into a store an instantly decide if there is anything that will be of interest. My favorite thing is spotting something unusual for her that she might not otherwise have purchased.
Thanks for visiting today!
