Cottage Wall

When I first saw the 2009-2010 Idea Book and Catalog, I fell IN LOVE with the "Cottage Wall" DSP. What gorgeous paper. What rich colors. Oh, be still my heart. :happy sigh: I am embarrassed to admit this, but I purchased five packs and am now hoarding it. :oP

But, isn't the point of beautiful paper to use it? How am I to enjoy it if it is just tucked away in a cubby, never seeing the light of day?? Hm. This deserves some thought...;o)

This card uses not only my favorite DSP, but also one of the most versatile sets I own, "Trendy Trees". This is another go-to set for me. They are a clean, simple set. (Please ignore that wonky tree on the right, there. Oops!)

This card uses (all SU! unless otherwise noted):
Stamp set: "Trendy Trees"
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Orchid Opulence (retired), Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Orchid Opulence, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: 5/8" Old Olive grosgrain, Eyelet Border punch, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig

Ahhh, if only I had used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig with the tree trunks...

I'm hoping to get into the studio some time tomorrow--I have bunches of new goodies to play with...:o)

LOVE Trendy Trees...it's on my wish list because there are so many things you can do with it. The Stamp A Ma Jig is the best, but I forget to use mine from time to time. Nice paper...I'm in love with Sunny Garden DSP this year...LOVE!
