Backwards Through the Seasons!
Sometimes it feels like the story of my life: Going back-wards! Like working out for an hour only to come home and eat that fresh-from-the-bakery giant fried cinnamon roll intended for my husband...arrrgh! But this time going backwards is fun...we're going from a winter card to a fall card, again using Clear Dollar's "Tree-mendous Wishes" set. The cardstock is Stampin' Up's Old Olive, More Mustard, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, and Purely Pomegranate (inks in the same colors, minus Choc. Chip, plus Creamy Caramel). I ran the mustard panel thru the Cuttlebug using the Swirls embossing folder. And do you think I went a bit crazy with the linen floss?! I just think it adds that perfect rustic touch (it's been a favorite staple of mine since Stampin' Up intro'd it a few years ago). Other tools and accessories include Making Memories buttons, a micro hole punch, and the EK tab and corner punches. Oh, and I can't forget the Ranger Stickles: Let's see...I used Orange Peel, Pink (which looks burgundy in the bottle), and Coffee Ice. Coming up: What else? Summer!
