The Stampin’ UP! All Squared Away stamp set is on backorder but the Stampin’ UP! Floral Squares Dies are available so I played with them over the weekend. I loved the CAS whimsy of this card:)
Since I used three floral dies on the card, it only seemed right to use a die cut for the sentiment so I pulled out my Birthday Chick Dies. Embossing the black panel with the Tasteful Textiles EF added texture for the Floral Squares Dies to sit on. I also die cut the flowers in Daffodil Delight, Polished Pink, and Mango Melody to add to the Floral Dies with some retired black rhinestones.
I wanted to try die cutting some leaves out of DSP with the Inspiring Canopy Dies and decided this variegated pattern in the Beauty of the Earth made a perfect spring tree.
Now, I know the background sky isn’t Cinnamon Cider colored but It matched so nicely with the DSP, don’t you think? I pulled out the Merry Merlot color for the card base. I liked the brightness of the Old Olive for the grass but Mossy Meadow would have looked good, too. A few scattered leaves on the ground cut off of the edge finished the front.
Pull one of the trees to the inside the card along with the grass, and you are done. To make the rolling grass hills, I started out with a 2-1/2″ x 4″ piece of Old Olive Cardstock and cut it in half.

A cool winter card for these hot days coming upon us…
A clean and simple card using the Stampin’ UP! Inspired Thoughts Bundle with the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper. Just a 2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of the blue winter pines bordered by some Misty Moonlight cardstock is all you need to dress up this card. I scattered some Snowflake Sequins (currently on the Clearance Rack) along with a little birdie die cut from the Beautiful Trees Dies in the Beauty of Friendship Bundle- you know….the other tree bundle in the catalog!
I added some white trees and a snowdrift to the inside with the coordinating sentiment.
