Stampin’ Up! Tree Lot Dies and Beauty of Friendship – Father’s Day Card

Happy Friday! Another week has flown by, and summer is in full swing! I thought today’s card was appropriate for a summer day!

Here is another sneak peek of a Sale-A-Bration item.  I used the adorable Tree Lot Dies along with the Beauty of Friendship Stamp Set to create this Father’s Day card.  You can earn the Tree Lot Dies during Sale-A-Bration which begins on July 1, 2022 with an order of $100.  The Tree Lot Dies set coordinates with the Trees for Sale Stamp Set which will be included in the July-December 2022 Mini Catalog. 

I started with a panel of Shimmery White cardstock and used Tahitian Tide and Granny Apple Green inks to watercolor the background for the card scene. The Beauty of Friendship stamps were used to stamp two trees onto the background, as well as the inside of the card and envelope front. I die cut all of the pieces needed from the Tree Lot Dies set to complete the card front. Of course, you can choose what colors you use based on your available cardstock scraps! The Celebrating You Stamp Set was used for the sentiment.

A scrap piece of cardstock was adhered to the back of the trailer die cut over the windows so that I could glue the yellow round and rectangular windows in. I assembled the trees and began adhering the pieces to the panel. The scene was then adhered to an Evening Evergreen mat, then this unit was adhered to the card front.

I made this card into a Father’s Day card, but this would make a great masculine card or for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors!

I can’t hardly wait for you to see the Sale-A-Bration catalog and July-December Mini Catalog! Both of these catalogs will be available for customer viewing and orders on July 1, 2022. Start warming up those credit cards because you won’t believe how many fabulous items are included in these catalogs!

Wishing all of the dads, soon-to-be dads, stepdads and stand-in dads a very happy Father’s Day! Enjoy your special day celebrating you! Fondly remembering my dad who is no longer with us.

He’s The Man Father’s Day Card / Hope Box Kits – Update / May is a Great Time to Join as a Demonstrator!

He’s the man Father’s Day Card

Do you struggle to find suitable stamps, dies and paper for the guys in your life when cardmaking? Look no further! Check out the He’s The Man Suite Collection. Today’s card is made from this suite of products, and I love how it turned out! The He’s The Man paper also includes two sheets of die cut punch out pieces to add an extra something to your cards.

This card sits on a Very Vanilla card base, and I used a piece of the DSP on the card front. I also used several of the die cut punch out pieces for the front of the card – going with a BBQ theme. The All That Dies include several sentiment labels to use along with the coordinating stamps as well. The card was finished off with several of the Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots.

You can find the He’s The Man Suite in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog which will be open for customer orders beginning tomorrow!

Hope Box Cards

A few weeks ago, I let you know about a special offer on the Hope Box Paper Pumpkin kit. Stampin’ Up! is offering a discounted price on the Hope Box Paper Pumpkin kit and refill in honor of National Month of Hope.

When I shared the Hope Box information with you, I pledged to purchase two Hope Boxes, assemble the cards and donate them to a local hospital for the chronically ill. Below is a photo of my completed cards. The cards will be sent to the hospital for distribution to some of the residents there. Most of the residents at this hospital have no family to visit them. Me and a group of friends create cards each month and send them to the hospital and the residents greatly look forward to receiving a card each month. It lets them know there is someone who cares! We’ve been sending cards to the hospital for over a year now and it’s still a rewarding activity. I’m so happy that I can share my cards of hope with them!

If you would like to order a Hope Box kit or two all of the details are below. Kits come with everything you need to complete the cards, including adhesives and embellishments. The kits are available to everyone for a special limited time discount. The offer runs through June 14, 2022.
