Fruitful Blessings & the All About Autumn DSP
Beary Cute & the Merriest Trees

Creativity Abounds Blog Hop...Holidays


Welcome to the Creativity Abounds Blog Hop!  We are an international group of Stampin' Up!® demonstrators.  We hop together on the third Wednesday of every month.  Our hops focus around a particular bundle, holiday, occasion or product suite.  This month we are focusing on the Holidays.

Every month we create a tutorial bundle. The tutorial bundle is available as a gift with a qualifying purchase or can also be purchased.   We also have a stamp camp 3 times a year.  The next camp will be the Winter Meadow Stamp Camp on October 20 & 21.

This card just makes me smile!  I knew I wanted to make a card with this fold and use the Merriest Trees bundle and the Beary Cute bundle.    I ended up using the Festive & Fun stamp set instead of the Beary Cute.  The trees in the Merriest Trees bundle  are so versatile.  You can customize the size of the trees.  There are dies that will cut out just the top portion, 2 sections, 3 sections,  4 sections or the entire tree.  On this card I used the whole tree (middle tree in the back row) and 3 & 4 section trees.  The trees were inked in Shaded Spruce, Garden Green, and Granny Apple Green. 

The snowy DSP is from the Beary Christmas DSP pack.   They were layered on each section.  On the front panel I added the Festive & Fun rhino and sled image and layered the DSP over it.  Aren't they cute going through the snowy woods?  

The rhino &  friends were stamped on Basic White CS with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Stampin' Blends.  I used the following Stampin'Blends-Smoky Slate, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green, and Petal Pink.  The image was fussy cut out.

The sentiment is from the Beary Cute stamp set and stamped on Basic White CS that was cut using the Sending Dies.  At the end of the sentiment is an Adhesive-Backed Glitter Sequin.  The color on the package says it is Old Olive but i think it works here too.

The card base measures 5" x 10-1/2" scored at 1-1/4", 2-1/2", 4-1/4", 6", and 8-1/4".  When attaching the trees just make sure the height from the base of the card to the treetops are 4-1/4" or less. 


Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all the stops on the hop!
