Pals Blog Hop: Getting “Sentimental”

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop!

This month, the theme is Focus on the Sentiment. Our Design Team are showcasing a sentiment as the focal point of their project. We really hope that you will be inspired by all the amazing creations the Pals share with you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I chose a beautiful sentiment from the Perched in a Tree bundle, found in the Stampin’ Up! July-December Mini Catalog.

I love everything about this bundle, appropriate for year-round use. The sentiment I chose — “No matter the season, I am here for you” — is just so fitting, no matter what season you are sending a card! I started with an A2 base of Mossy Meadow. I then cut a Basic White panel at 5 3/8″ by 4 1/8″ and cut it out with the Aspen Tree Die. I used a Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Marker to draw some accents on the sides and ‘notches’ of the tree trunks. Finally, I ran the died piece through my cut and emboss machine inside the Timber 3D Embossing Folder.

Behind the cut out aspen piece, I adhered two panels. I started with a 4″ by 5 1/4″ panel of Designer Series Papers from the Celebrate Everything set, which is a host set from the July-December Mini Catalog. I love the modern leaf pattern! On top of the DSP, I adhered a panel of Vellum Cardstock of the same size to mute the DSP a little. I then adhered the cut tree piece to the top of those two panels, and then adhered to the Mossy Meadow card base.

I then used the retired Subtle Embossing Folder to emboss a leaf from the Leaf Label and Amber Gem Combo Pack. On a scrap of Basic White Card Stock, I embossed the beautiful sentiment in Gold Emboss Powder, and cut it out, angling the ends. I cut a slice of Gold Shimmer Ribbon, shredded the end, adhered it to the back of the sentiment piece, and then popped it up using Stampin’ Dimensional. I finished with some gold toned Festive Pearls and I was done!

This bundle has other beautiful sentiments, too, don’t you agree? And I love the mix of fonts as well.

I hope you enjoyed my project using one of the beautiful sentiments from the Perched in a Tree Bundle. All the products I used to make this project can be found at the bottom of this post.

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on October 12th when our theme will be a color challenge!

Until then, have fun in your craft space.

  1. Wow, Mary, I love your card! You have me thinking about that DSP, which I never even noticed before. What a fun way to display it! Thank you for joining the blog hop this month!
