Trees

SAMSUNG CSC“Trees” is such a stunning card that I chose not to trim the Adventure Bound DSP resulting in a 5 X 7 finished card.  When was the last time we did a 5 X 7 card?  Mossy Meadow and a new SU color – Tip Top Taupe – were the perfect colors for this forest scene.  When you see the card in person, you will note the muted greens, browns, and grays.  The “happy” caption on the front panel was die cut from the “Hello You” thinlits.  The words “happy, you, hello” and “thanks” come with this set.  Die cutting these SU thinlits is an absolute breeze.  At one time, I always used waxed paper or another non-stick material when I die cut my words.  However, no longer.  I run them thru the Big Shot, gently bang the die against my desk and easily pull out the word if it doesn’t jump out at me.  I added the heat embossed “birthday” die cut with a banner shape. 

SAMSUNG CSC“Lovely as a Tree” is the oldest SU stamp set that remains current.  I chose to stamp one tree from this set on the inside of my card and on my envelope.

The second sample of  “Trees” varies only in the caption on the front layer.  I chose to die cut both “love” and “you” for a more personal card.  The “love” framelit is not current but goes well with the current cursive “you.”  The inner message can relay any sentiment you choose.

It is hard to believe it is May 18th and I have all 4 projects posted for June Stamp Camp.  However, I wanted you to see how we have used several of the papers from the Adventure Bound DSP stack.  I know how busy everyone is but I felt this was a great chance for you to obtain a DSP stack that you will be able to use in the weeks ahead.

A couple reminders that I have copied from the previous blog:  I need to know by Wednesday May 20 if you will be attending June Stamp Camp (June 4, 5, 6)  or purchasing a kit so I can have your Adventure Bound DSP stack for you. This 48-page paper stack is included in your June Stamp Camp kit.  Also, I will have the stamps I am selling, out for your perusal on Wednesday May 20 from 4 – 7 PM. Remember that the last day to order from the current big SU Catalog and Occasions Catalog is June 2nd. You can pick up the 2015-2016 catalog if you stop by to look at the stamps for sale on the 20th. Many, but not all, items are being carried over and there are lots of new items to feast your eyes on. The retiring products are updated daily and can be reviewed at Retiring SU Products. When they are gone – they’re gone!

We will not be meeting in July and will start up again just in time for fall and the holidays on August 6, 7 and 8.  I will be sending reminders from time to time about specials.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions and/or concerns.  While I am in California (May 22 – 29) please contact me by phone or text on my mobile at 630/965-1965 or by E-mail.

Blessings, Rosemary – 630/759-3089 – paperrose01@aol.com
