Stampin’ Up! Color Me Happy Pretty Pines

Good….Friday, y’all!  Hope you’ve had a great week and are ready for a weekend!

OnStage has been great so far…and wait until you get a gander at the new 2018 Occasions Catalog!  I’m so excited for you to get to see it!  Soon! 🙂

For today, I have a fun little pine-y Thank You card to share – it uses the large sentiment from the new Color Me Happy stamp set, a little Christmas Happiness and Pretty Pines die cuts and some Christmas Around the World DSP.  Take a look-see:

I played along with The Paper Players theme challenge this week:

I started with a Basic Black card base.  Then I cut two pieces of the plaid Christmas Around the World DSP to the exact size as the card – each is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere one sheet on the front of the card and the second sheet on the inside.  You’ll see how that ended up in a little bit.

Next up, I cut a smaller panel of Very Vanilla card stock and, using the splatter image in Touches of Texture, stamped it in Soft Suede a  couple of times – not re-inking between the stamps.

With my Christmas Happiness stamp set, I stamped a couple of pine boughs in Garden Green over the top of my splatters.  I added the medium size pine cone – the outline shape is in Early Espresso and the fill is Soft Suede.  Then I matted the panel on a piece of Garden Green card stock.

For my sentiment, I used the large Thank You in the new Color Me Happy stamp set, stamping it in Early Espresso on a piece of Wood Textures DSP.  Then I fussy cut just the “Thanks”.

I adhered the cut sentiment to the stamped panel with Liquid Glue.  Then, using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, I stamped just the work “you” under the sentiment in Early Espresso.

With the shortest pine bough die in the Pretty Pines Thinlits, I cut a couple of Garden Green pine boughs and adhered them with some Liquid Glue under the sentiment.   Then I cut a length of Jute Twine and unwound it – so I had three thinner strands.  With one of those strands, I tied a little bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I added three Black Rhinestone Jewels to the panel and popped it over the plaid card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside, I cut another of the short pine boughs from Pretty Pines out of the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Garden Green mat and into the card base – you can see where I’d already adhered the Christmas Around the World DSP!  And that was it for the card base!

My Very Vanilla Medium envelope got some more Garden Green, Early Espresso and Soft Suede Christmas Happiness pine boughs and cone on the front…

…and some more Christmas Around the World Mary’s-Favorite-Plaid-Paper on the envelope flap!

Et Voila!  So – wood.  Pine boughs.  Pine Cones.  PLAID!  Hello??  Gotta love the Christmas Happiness stamp set and the Pretty Pines Thinlits, right?  And look how the Color Me Happy sentiment just slides right in there!!  Hope you like!
