  • This darling scene utilities the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and coordinating Tree Builder Punch.
  • How sweet is the combination of Cucumber Crush, Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Dijon?
  • Hint: I used the entire grass/flower stem stamp on the left side of the tree and then masked part of it off with a Post-It note to stamp a smaller image on the right side of the tree for balance
  • I stamped and punch the flowers out with the Tree Builder Punch and then popped them up on two layered glue dots to give them a bit of dimension off of the base, but not too much to overshadow the tree base
  • Pearl Basic Jewels are the perfect centers for the pretty flowers!
  • Hint: I un-wound one of the three layers of the Cucumber Crush Thick Baker’s Twine to make it still hefty looking, but thin enough to tie into a sweet bow
  • Recognize the sentiment? It’s from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set! It’s an older set but has a wonderful variety of sentiments that makes it the perfect stamp set for someone just beginning their stamp collection 🙂

  • A sentiment from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set adorns the inside of the card and is the perfect compliment to the sentiment on the front

Well, what do you think of Cucumber Crush? It’s such a cheerful green, and really packs a punch when paired with Whisper White!

    Fabulous CAS card, Shannon! Love all the white space, that the patterned is confined to the envelope liner, and your perfect bow. I always smile when I see one of your cards in the gallery at The Paper Players!
