Enjoy the Journey

Enjoy the Journey

Welcome back to Stamping with Buffy! Did you ever order something and think, “hmm,” wondering why you ordered it? I’ve done that several times recently, but I realized there must have been a reason. One such purchase was the Enjoy the Journey Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Stampin’ Up!® January-April Mini Catalog. I am so glad I ordered it, because I love it! It has a lot of my favorite colors, and it goes really well with the Picturesque Stamp Set! (That’s not what I used with it today, though.)

Stampin' Up!, Grove Dies, Enjoy the Journey DSP

 

Several of my friends and I are in a monthly swap. We send each other a card each month – any theme, any design. This month, I received one from Margo that was a cute fun-fold and kind of the same design as this one – except she used birds and a nest. And mine isn’t the fun-fold.

Using a Garden Green card base, I die-cut the trees from the front using the Grove Dies from the Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. These are part of the Grassy Grove Bundle (Grassy Grove Stamp Set/Grove Dies) and this bundle is perfect for masculine cards or cards for nature lovers!

After I die-cut the front of the cards, I backed it with a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of the Enjoy the Journey DSP. Instead of doing a “card in a card” like Margo’s fun-fold, I adhered the DSP to the inside front of the card. Not only is the DSP design perfect with the die-cuts, by adhering it to the inside front, you can see the other side of the DSP as well.

I used the Grove Dies to die-cut the two deer from Soft Suede Cardstock and then added them to the forest. I wasn’t sure who I was going to send it to or for what occasion, so I haven’t added a sentiment yet. But it did need something so I tied some Linen Thread around the front.

This card was super simple and quick to create. These days, I need simple and quick! Don’t forget you only have six more days (unless you’re reading this after February 22) to enjoy Sale-a-bration products! After February 28, they’ll be gone, so don’t miss out. (Here’s a helpful hint – Order the Grassy Grove Bundle and your order will qualify for a free product!) Also, check out the updated Clearance Rack for discounted products!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!
