You’re Tree-mendous!


Well the last two days here in Maryland were a little cooler.  It only got in the mid 80s but we are supposed to get more hot, hot weather again before the week is out.  I hope it is cooler where you live and if not I hope you are staying cool.  Now down to the real business :)

My card today used the following sketch.  If it looks familiar its because we got to do one of our favorites again and I chose this one.

Pretty Patterns 03

And I came up with this layout:

You Are Treemendous Card

The image and sentiment I used is from the Tending The Garden Digital Stamp Set and this set has 50 images - yep you read it right -  it has a total of 50 images including the sentiments.  There are so many different possibilities just in this one set.  I really loved the Tree image and thought how neat it would look with Flower Soft (additional details below).

Check out the My Time Made Easy Store and see all the great digital stamp sets.  And if you never used a digital stamp go here for a tutorial titled Working with Digital Stamps by Terri Moore. Check the other tutorials too!  And if you have additional questions feel free to send me an e-mail with your question.

You want more inspiration?  Well go check out the awesome creations from the other Team members on the MTME Blog.


Additional details: The Flower Soft used on the tree image is called Heather.  The tree trunk has Sparkly Fluff (Brown Sugar) on it.  The papers are from my stash and the name of the stack is Urban Rhapsody.  Added a little bling using some dew drops and soften it all with the pretty bow & ribbon.  The edges on some of the paper was stained with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a Fuchsia ink mixed together to get a darker maroon to match the background paper.


Have a wonderful day!
