Here's one more card sample for you from my Sympathy/Thinking of You cards class.
I had someone ask me to "please use the tree stamp in the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set" so of course I had to oblige!
I chose a colour palette from the Neutrals family: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede and Early Espresso, with an accent of gold from the new Champagne Glass.
If you don't recognize the name, that's okay... it's something new that comes out September 1 in the new Holiday Mini catalogue. I just applied it to the card as a final step using out 2-way glue pen to stick it on.
I used the Scallop Trim Corner Punch on the 4 corners of both the Very Vanilla and Soft Suede cardstock layers, as I really liked how it turned out layered together.
On Monday, I'll be sending out to my newsletter subscribers the instructions for a new project using the new Day of Gratitude stamp set from the upcoming Holiday Mini Catalogue.
This new colour combination is a great one for autumn, using Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Old Olive.
By the way, if you aren't receiving my weekly newsletters -- why not? It's FREE and you can sign up right HERE to get yours sent out every Monday.
This project was shared with us by Stampin' Up! in our monthly demonstrator magazine, Stampin' Success. I love flipping through it as soon as it arrives in the mail and seeing the gorgeous new cards and reading the cool articles they publish -- I'm always hugely inspired!
If you want more information about some more of the perks of becoming a demonstrator yourself, let me know :)
You know how much I love that tree, so whoever requested your use of it, THANK YOU! :D
And I'm not a fan of glitter at ALL (hiding in shame, lol), but I have to admit that the Champagne Glass glitter is really snazzy and I'll probably wind up ordering some in the near future, lol.
Awesome cards, Caroline! :)
