New Colors for an Old Friend

Here's an old friend that I admit I have been neglecting lately....the Trendy Trees set. And what more perfect set for another fab Fall themed card?

I began by stamping my tree trunks in Soft Suede and then my fall foilage in Dusty Durango, So Saffron, and Pumpkin Pie. (Hint: A Stamp-a-ma-jig is a must for this and any other two-step-stampin' sets for proper placement of your image.) My trees were cropped out and matted on Soft Suede cardstock. I stamped my So Saffron cardstock with anoth tree topper from the set in So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie to create a retro pattern for my background. I love making my own patterned paper using my stamps! This was also matted on So Saffron and a Dustry Durango Polka Dotted Grosgrain Ribbon was added (*check back soon for a "Stay Put Bow" video tutorial!) My sentiment is also fromt he Trendy Trees set, stamped in Soft Suede on Whisper White and punched with the Large Oval Punch. It was joined by a Soft Suede Scallop Oval, popped over the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals, and I was done!
