CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #50

I have not done one of these challenges in a while and since I have my new Trendy Tree Tops stamps and dies from PTI I thought it would be fun to play along. This was a very quick and easy card to put together, the only challenge being getting the stamped images down in the correct way so that the tree branches from the die line up.  Only took me two tries! I also bit the bullet and cut one of my new stamps, Think Big Favorites #15. I wanted to use Hello Sunshine but did not want it all in one line, so I pulled out the scissors and gave it a quick snip...not as painful as I thought it might be, LOL. I thought I had some itty bitty butterflies hanging around that though that would make a nice addition to the tree but could not find them and really did not want to take up too much time looking for them.  So here is my card, thanks for taking a peek!

Solid Card Stock: PTI - Rustic White, Spring Moss, Chocolate Brown and Summer Sunrise
Printed Paper: PTI - Distressed Dots
Stamps: PTI - Trendy Tree Tops and Think Big Favorites #15
Dies: PTI - Trendy Tree Tops, In The Meadow and Limitless Layers
Ink: PTI - Spring Moss and VersaFine - Vintage Sepia


  1. What a fun card. Love that trendy tree top set. Your sun is such a nice touch. I gasped when I saw that you cut your stamp apart.

  2. Well, its a good thing that you got the courage to cut your sentiment, because it looks perfect on your card that way!! I got Trendy Tree Tops, too, and haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but you better believe I'll be pulling it out this week :)

  3. I agree with Joyce...
    I gasped when you said you cut!
    I just don't have the courage! :(
    But the sentiment looks so fabulous like that...
    and that sun...
    Such an utterly cheerful, adorable card...
    love it!! :)

  4. Beautiful card Kim, I love the Trendy Tree I can't wait for mine to arrive. I'm so glad to hear I am not the only one who gets nervous snipping a stamp. I haven't braved it out yet on the tiny two line stamps--I ink carefully. LOL

  5. LOL, I have been cutting stamps lately too. I love your card, the tree tops are lined up perfectly with the tree trunk. Love the sun from patterned paper and I laughed when I read how you didn't feel like hunting for the little butterflies. Very cute card Kim.

  6. Simply delightful! Love the composition and colors! I'm glad that you join the fun with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  7. Darling!
    Thanks for playing at CAS-ual Fridays!
