Hello fellow stampers. It’s cool morning this morning here in New Jersey. This time of year it’s hard to know what to expect. I hope you have some crafting time scheduled in your day ‘cuz I have a cute card for you. It uses the Whimsical Trees stamp set and Christmas Trees Dies, a bundle. I’ve also used a Blending Brush to create the background and done a bit of splattering as well. Let’s take a look.

Pink & Green Whimsy.1

Gosh – this photo makes the card look pink all over!!! It isn’t…

This is a notecard size card – so 3 1/2 x 5. Let me give you some detail… With a Blending Brush add a bit of Blushing Bride to the card. I created sort of an oval. I then used one of the water painters and splattered a few drops of water in the colored area. The way to do this is to flick the brush against the cap so the water goes toward the paper. If it’s too heavy, just blot with a paper towel. I then used my Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends and did more flicking, this time all over the card. I like the look – a bit country – and this is a country scene after all. I cut two strips of paper, one from the Subtle 6×6 DSP in Blushing Bride (3/8 width) and one from Whimsy & Wonder 12 x 12 Specialty DSP (SDSP) (1/2 width). I adhered them together after trimming the ends on an angle, then added to the front of the card. I took a length of the White Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack, separated the threads and wound just a couple of them around a bit, just leaving them in place. I took the trees die cut from Green Foil, put mini dimensionals on the back and adhered them over the twine, holding it in place. I trimmed the length of the tree trunk too, so they were fairly even with one another. I wanted tiny words and found them in the Many Messages stamp set. I know, this is a big, all encompassing stamp with several sentiments. But with the help of my Stamparatus and some masking of surrounding sentiments, it worked just fine! I stamped in Memento Black ink then cut out the portion I wanted to use. I put mini dimensionals on the back and adhered it in place. The final step was to addf a few of the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels (Polished Pink & Soft Succulent) and the card front was finis.

Pink & Green Whimsy.2

This card looks very pink to me – must be the lighting! I do apologize – for the card is the Basic White Notecard!! Remember the strips on the front of the card? I had some left and simply added it to the bottom of the card. I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Memento Black ink and that was it.

Pink & Green Whimsy.3

For the envelope I stamped the sweet tree from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in stamped-off Soft Evergreen ink. I added more Subtle 6×6 DSP to the flap. Such a sweet card. And this doesn’t take long to do. It would be fine on a full A2 size card as well ~ I just happen to like the Notecard & Envelopes size :O)
