A Trendy Tree in the Funky Forest


Last night my friend and neighbour Janelle came over to play (well, in her case, to drool over the Stampin’ Up! 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalogue that comes out in two weeks!) – but I was working on something to demonstrate at a workshop this week. I also wanted to use one of Stampin’ Up!s  wheel stamps, as there is a special challenge this week over on Just Add Ink. In raising funds for Hudson, they’ve called this challenge ‘Just Add…. Wheels’.

For some reason I grabbed the ‘Trendy Trees’ stampset, and the ‘Funky Forest’ wheel, added a bit of Chocolate Chip and Old Olive ink, and came up with this…..

I used a Kraft (‘Crumb Cake’) base, and Pumpkin Pie cardstock, and stamped on Whisper White (love that stuff!). There’s also a piece of Pumpkin Pie ribbon there, secured with a Vintage brad.

This card is growing on me – great masculine project, don’t you think?

    I like it: I’ve been working on “masculine” cards this month and this is very nice. Something so appealing about those funky trees. Sigh… another set for my wish list.

    Bron, I love this! I’ve had Trendy Trees, and the Funky Forest wheel, out, trying to come up with something I’m happy with, but have been having a bit of creative block. You’ve inspired me -thank you! Great card 🙂

    Great job. Did they have to call it crumb cake? References to food are often tempting…
