Summer goes by so fast and everyone likes to be out and about, spending time with family and friends, traveling, and soaking up the sun. During the next three months I will blogging as I usually do, but the focus for the summer will be The Art of Simplicity.
I will post short and sweet entries with cards & scrapbook pages that you can create in no time. I know we all enjoy the hobby year-round, but during the summer, most of us tend to spend less time crafting. The Art of Simplicity I will share with you this summer will keep you creating and still have time to enjoy your summer activities. Sound good? I sure hope so! You won't be disappointed, I promise.
To kick off my summer theme -The Art of Simplicity, check out the card pictured above!
Here are all the Stampin' Up! materials you will need:
Cardstock: Whisper White and Chocolate Chip
Stamp Set: Trendy Trees
Ink: Green Galore, Chocolate Chip
This Whisper White card is 4.25 x 4.25 inches square. It's a really cute size card - not too big, not too small. I used square Nestabilities to punch out the front 2x2 inch centered window.
To the left of the window I stamped on the side "thinking of you" from the Trendy Trees set in Chocolate Chip Ink.
I stamped one of the trees from the Trendy Trees set on Whisper White cardstock & punched that piece out with square Nestabilities (1.75 inch). I took a 2 inch square of Chocolate Chip, layered that behind my tree piece, and attached the entire piece to the inside of the card matching up directly behind the window.
To finish it off, I added a cute little Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button to the bottom right.
Stay tuned . . . sneak peeks from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog (due out in July) will be posted next week. I can hardly wait!!! Have a wonderful weekend!
