Trendy Trees in Spring and Stamps for Sale!

Trendy Trees (#113258) is such a cute stamp set. I see that one of my trees is crooked, but then maybe it's planted on a hill, right? It's just such a springy set and I'm feeling springy as the temps reach 80 degrees and 90 on Sunday! For us that's a big deal here in the northern climes.
Spring came early this year and that was awesome, so it figures summer would. The trees leafed out early and I found myself intrigued by all the different shades of green. To that end I blended greens I don't usually mix.

I used the Big Shot Textured Plates #4 (#114531) to make the bark looking Mellow Moss portion of hte card. I mixed moss and Old Olive which seemed to work. I used an aquapainter to ground the image. The mat is Chocolate Chip cardstock. I used the Large Oval punch (#107305) and the Scallop Oval punch (#114889) to create the greeting.

Remember, I'm taking preorder for the new 2010-2011Stampin' Up! catalog! Make sure to get your order in soon. The cost for the catalog is $9.95. Club members get their catalogs for free as hostess benefits, as do dated workshops. Contact me to get your 200+ page catty soon!

That's it for the sale items. Remember to check last Tuesday for other stamp sets. I still have some of them left. These stamp sets are in NEW or LIKE NEW condition. I will post if there is major ink on any rubber. Remember, however, that even if the rubber stains it won't affect your artwork.

Most items are shipping in the Priority Mail flat rate packages but some will be shipping in manilla envelopes depending on the size of the set. Contact me at Karen's Stamp Sale to order. While you're stopping by place an order for the new catalog! You won't want to miss this one with TEN NEW COLORS! I can't wait!

Have a great Tuesday and we'll see you tomorrow for another great project,
Much love and joy,



  1. Love that trendy card - one of my new favorite sets!

  2. Cute card! I think the colors are perfect together. I don't have that set, but I think it's adorable. Might add it to my wish list (if it doesn't retire). TFS!

  3. Yes, that's definitely a tree planted on a hill. I don't have this set, but I've been seeing so many great samples with it lately. Makes me think I "need" it.

  4. This is so cute! I love this set, and have it, and have never used it! I always see cute things made with it. I need to get it out and be creative. Thanks for sharing. I love it.

  5. Wow, you've been busy snapping photos today!!!!
    I love the card btw - nice color combo!

  6. Thanks Ladies! I've set a goal to post every day and help as many of my customers as I can. Your kind comments are so affirming. Thanks for looking!
