SU Take Care

I had a few minutes this morning to play in my stamp center. The sun is shining although it is very cold. I was in the mood for a light and airy spring card so I pulled out the SU Take Care set. I was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches # 128 . Think springy thoughts Pennsylvanians!

SU Gorgeous Grunge Autumn Tree

This is such a Clean and Simple card, huh? That is what I thought when I set out to make it.  One of my stamping gals mentioned at class tonight if I intentionally had a bottle of wine in the rack in the dining room that mimicked the SU Gorgeous Grunge we were using…the label had the splotches with the straight lines behind them. Oh, I wish I had thought of that…nonetheless, it did inspire me right that very moment but I had to wait to act on that lightbulb going off in my head.


So after, three classes of intricate stamping and cutting with my wonderful friends, I cleaned up the stations  with all intentions of going straight to bed. But, no…I  just had to  whip up that simple little card with a tree trunk and some splotches of leaves for Sandy’s challenge at The Paper Players # 161– Create a Fall-themed Card.  You know, Clean and Simple to help me to wind down from my stamping classes that afternoon and evening. Well, an hour and a half later, I finally took a photo after stamping multiple cards that ended up with a little mess up on each one like a fingerprint or a halo. Anyway, here is my card inspired by the wine label:
