Reason for the Season

Quick post today. I'm on my way home from Atlanta and my head is positively swimming with all the information, ideas, and NEW PRODUCTS that are coming! As an attendee at OnStage, I got to pre-preorder some new products which will be arriving at my doorstep in a few days, so be on the lookout for some sneaky peeks in the near future!

Meanwhile, here's a card that I made while playing around with some Tim Holtz dies. I really thought the die-cut evergreens in the Woodlands die set looked so sleek and modern. I wanted to see if I could do a sort of minimalist card, using the tree and the negative of the cut out tree. What do you think? Should I have left off the sequins? I have a hard time doing CAS - I always think "This needs something."

I cut the tree in Whisper White and Emerald Envy, and offset it a bit, so just a little of the green is showing. Now that the card is finished, I think I should have used Dapper Denim, as was used for the mat. Oh well, live and learn, right? And this was really just playing around with new toys.


  1. Love the effect of the offset tree. I agree that the Dapper Denim may give it a coordinated look, but I like the green also. Is Stampin' Up! now selling Tim Holtz dies?

    1. No, they aren't. It's "contraband", but it was so unique, I couldn't resist. :)

  2. I do like the sequins, but I think it would be beautiful w/o as well. Love the design of this pine!

  3. Thanks! I loved it so much I could justify the "SOB." (Some other Brand)

  4. What an absolutely beautiful card!! I love the offset tree, the colors and the background trees are stunning!!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
