Perched in a Tree by Stampin’ Up! – A Card Duo!

For my Facebook Live this week, I wanted to showcase the Perched in a Tree bundle – and specifically the Aspen Tree Dies – because they are now one of the FREE Saleabration Rewards you can select with a qualifying $100 product purchase.  We all love free, right?  These dies are found in the July-December Mini Catalog and are priced at $36 so to get them for free is great!

Watch the video below to see how I made these cards.  They are very different – but from the same bundle –  showing the versatility of these products!

For my first card, I used a Starry Sky card base, and then added a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Basic White.  I ran a piece of the White Glimmer Paper through my Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine with the Aspen Tree die – wanting to create a wintry, snowy look! I also cropped the branch with the White Glimmer Paper.  I mounted this onto the Basic White cardstock – using a lot of dimensionals – making certain this panel would pop!

The sweet chubby bird was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Basic White cardstock, and cropped with the coordinating die. A bit of color was added to the bird with the  “splatter” stamp in the Perched in a Tree stamp set along with some Starry Sky ink.  I inked up the bird, stamped off onto scrap paper and then lightly tapped the stamp to the bird.  This is a great way to add a little color quickly!

The second card I made uses the Aspen Leaves from the die set – so pretty!  This card has a very soft color palette – Pool Party, Soft Sea Foam and Basic White.  The Designer Paper strips are from the beautiful Splendid Day Specialty Paper.

I used two strips of the Soft Seafoam DSP, and then added a strip of Pool Party Ribbon.  I love the softness that the ribbon adds.

 

FREE TUTORIALS- I send out Weekend Inspiration every weekend that includes a handful of Card Projects with tutorials and supply lists – and yes they are free!  The first card on today’s post is one of the project tutorials!   I send these out to all who are on my email list.  Interested in getting these project sheets?  Simply subscribe to my email list click here:
