Totally Trees by Stampin’ Up! Again!

I very nearly didn’t post this card. It’s another one using Totally Trees by Stampin’ Up! Again!  I thought I had already posted it, as it was one of the cards I made when I first got Totally Trees and had a creative frenzy with these cards and this card. Also, I’m sure there were more. Or maybe I’m just imagining it? Lol

Taking inspiration from this art journal pin I had found on Pinterest, I got out practically all of the Stampin’ Up! Blues. I think I ended up using Soft Sky, Pool Party, Marina Mist, Dapper Denim and Night of Navy.

I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments onto a sliver of Night of Navy cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Did you spot the sliver of silver glimmer paper? I seem to have been adding these strips onto a lot of cards recently. Must be a phase I am going through! Lol!

The card base is Dapper Denim with a layer of Marina Mist under the Whisper White card front. What do you think? One day I will be brave enough to create my art journal. In the meantime, I will no doubt keep pinning the ones I find on Pinterest!

Don’t you think Pinterest has a lot to answer for? I do! There are more pins on my boards than I can ever hope to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) or to use for inspiration, but no doubt I will keep adding more when I have a few minutes down time. Usually it’s the last thing I do before I turn the lights out to go to sleep. Often my eyelids are drooping and I’m still pinning away! Do you do that? I doubt I’m the only one! 😉

Ok so I’ve another card for you today that I dug out of my unfinished projects basket last week. I had been stuck on what to do with this one after I had stamped the door and the flower. But then a friend came over for coffee and I was able to bounce some ideas off her and finish up this one and another one too – both using In This World & Touches of Texture by Stampin’ Up!

Luckily my friend is very understanding! Well she is a crafter too and she loves buying new products as much as I do! We are quite bad for each other’s wallets really!  LoL!

I’m really pleased with the way the card has turned out! There’s still a fair few items knocking around in my unfinished items basket. I need to get a bit more organised and have a session finishing them all off. It’s really actually very therapeutic and you feel like you’ve achieved something!

I was browsing Pinterest last week looking for ideas, which I often do – usually late at night on my phone when I should really be sleeping! Who needs sleep anyways?! 🙂 I stumbled across this picture of Snoopy in his little red car and had a flash of inspiration for Beautiful Ride, which is a fantastic stamp set from Stampin’ Up! ®. I love this stamp set but it seems that every idea I have, I then spot a card on Pinterest that someone else has already done!

I used my alcohol markers for this card as I wanted the bright, bold colours of the markers that are possible on Whisper White card stock. I started with the sky using the marker blender pen and then going over with a couple of different shades of blue. I stamped Thanks from Tin of Card Stamp set along a strip of Whisper White and added it along the bottom of the sky background.

I then stamped the car and the little dog in Memento Black ink and coloured in using a few shades of red. I drew in the line down the side of the front window and then extended the window lines along the top of the car door panels, before cutting it all out and sticking it on Stampin’ Dimensionals over the top of the sky, just above the sentiment.

I added the little white flowers in White StazOn afterwards just to add a bit more interest. What do you think? I thought it was quite a fun card! 😀
