My Final Top Pick! Feel Good: Trimming the Town Suite

Aug 31, 2020 | Uncategorized | 1 comment

I’m a sucker for a good cause – and this Trimming the Town Suite has certainly pulled on my heartstrings! This suite features the Coming Home Bundle which is part of Stampin’ Up’s Making a Difference program and seemed the perfect “feel good” choice for my top picks!

Home Stamp Set individually or as part of a bundle or suite collection,

I have two cards to share with you today -the first is a Christmas themed Slim Line card.  Have you tried a slimline card yet?   This is my first time to make one and all I can say is, I’m hooked!  They are such fun!  

Start with a 7″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Whisper White Thick, score at 3 1/2.
Adhere a 8 1/8″ x 3 1/4″ piece of Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, along with the Home Together Dies to crop a 5 1/2 x 1 1/2 and a 7 x 2 1/2 piece of Whisper White Cardstock to create the snowy landscape. 
Emboss both pieces with the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. 
Use the coordinating Home Together Dies to crop the house, wreath & trees from the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper.  
Adhere all with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 
Use Paper Snips to trim the sentiment from the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper. 
Adhere over a bow of Old Olive All the Trimmings Ribbon. 
Add All the Trimmings Embellishments to the trees. 

My second card shows the versatility of this suite!  I needed a birthday card for my sister in law, Nancy! Her birthday is in early September and she happens to have a Cajun Craze colored VW!   I knew I had to create a special birthday card for her using that VW!  Here’s what I came up with! 

Nancy lives in Michigan and often travels up north where there are lots and lots of trees!  I used the landscape dies to create a tree-lined road !  I cut out three of pieces of the landscape die – two in Old Olive and one in Smoky Slate to represent the road.  I snipped off the trees from one of the Old Olive pieces and also from the Smoky Slate piece.  I adhered them together with Mono Liquid Glue.   I used the trees I had removed to add some interest in the lower part of the panel.   
Fun and whimsical!  Also, I used the “smoke” stamp – which is meant for smoke coming out of the chimney as a little bit of exhaust coming out the back of the VW!  

Don’t miss out on this whimsical fun Suite and your chance to Make a Difference!

    Very nice! Love it! I have been doing all slim cards for Christmas this year. I cannot remember who got what last year but no one had a slimcard last year….so it makes it safer …the same person will not get the same card, although it might be the same set of stamps! Last year’s stamp sets are still in this year: cardinals, houses, and trees to name a few! Great sets to work with….some I haven’t used yet! I do want to send mini-calanders to friends who appreciates them! Merry Christmas! Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards! 🙂
