Trendy Trees

I have two cards for you today. I had hoped for more, but I kept getting sidetracked. You know how that goes, I'm sure.

This first card may look familiar if you looked at my previous post. Actually, it's the same card except that I used the Trendy Trees set instead of Pocket Silhouettes, and changed the color from Night of Navy to Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip. I've been having the nagging feeling that I picked up this layout from someone else, but I can't seem to place the card or the stamper; so if I did, and if it's you, please speak up!

I made this next card over several hours of putzing around after supper. Colors are Pirouette Pink, Pretty in Pink, and Regal Rose -- my favorite monochromatic color combination -- and Chocolate Chip again. The frame is from the Patterns Pack II DSP offered as a hostess reward in the current catalog. The brads are Pretty in Pink. Punches used: Ticket corner, scalloped edge. I used the coordinating stamp wheel, Funky Forest, along the bottom of the inside of the card.

Trendy Trees and Funky Forest have grown on me in just two cards!

kiwi kiss kard...i loved the blue one you made, so this is another extension. nice that there are a few stamps you can use for this layout. kool!

i am going to have to try to do a monochromatic card. i suppose a bazzil pack might just be the ticket. i don't have the stampin' up papers like you do.

the magic word today is "welistr" ... kinda like "we list 'em", except this refers to girl-cards.
