Retirement Wishes

July 21, 2022

This week in my Facebook Live, I shared the Trees For Sale stamp set which you can find in the July to December Mini Catalogue and the Tree Lot Dies which you can have FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a qualifying order. For today’s card I am once more using these items. I began by embossing Basic White card using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder which I attached to scored and folded Mossy meadow card. I cut Shimmer White card using one of the Scalloped Contour Dies. I stamped the “sand” image from the Oceanfront stamp set twice across the bottom of the die cut panel using Crumb Cake ink. I used a Watercolour Brush to move the ink around to give complete cover over the bottom half of the die.

I used the “sky” image from the Oceanfront stamp set to add Coastal Cabana ink to the remaining half of the die cut and once more used a Watercolour Brush to move the ink to give a little more coverage of the die. I attached the die to the upper right hand corner of the card front. I die cut the caravan image twice using the Tree Lot Dies, once from Smoky Slate card and once from Basic Black card. I trimmed around the wheel on the Smoky Slate image and cut off the jockey wheel. I trimmed down the Basic Black image and attached it to the back of the Smoky Slate image. I die cut the second caravan image from Basic Black card using the Tree Lot Dies and attached the images to the Smoky Slate die before attaching the whole piece to the stamped Shimmery White rectangle. I cut the caravan image once more from Basic White card and attached the two window pieces into the image on the card front.

I stamped the three solid trees from the Trees For Sale stamp set onto Basic White card using Mossy Meadow ink which I stamped first onto scrap paper. I stamped the three detailed tree images over the solid images using Mossy Meadow ink before cutting out the trees using the co-ordinating Tree Lot Dies. I attached the trees to the left hand side of the card front. I stamped “retirement wishes” from the Paradise Palms stamp set onto Basic White card using Mossy Meadow ink and punched out the greeting using the Double Oval Punch. I attached the greeting to a Mossy Meadow scalloped oval punched using the same die and then the card front. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Paradise Palms stamp set onto Basic White card using Mossy Meadow ink. I stamped the large solid tree onto the lower left hand corner of the stamped Basic White card using Mossy Meadow ink which I stamped onto scrap paper first. I stamped the detailed tree image also using Mossy Meadow ink.

The Trees For Sale stamp set is presented as a Christmas card stamp set but I hope I have convinced you that you can use it for almost any occasion.

Bye for now,

Kris
