Framed Out #3 and Trendy Tree Tops Day 4

Howdy everyone! Welcome back, so glad you could join me for day 4 of the Papertrey Ink April Countdown. For today my focus is on showcasing a couple of sets... Framed Out #3 by Heather Nichols and my set once again... Trendy Tree Tops. Both of which are sets that I am currently loving! So, let me get started...First up, this little number featuring Framed Out #3 all on its own. The smaller frame makes a statement when stamped across a card front, I just love this pattern. I've stamped it in a color combo of Hawaiian Shores, Melon Berry and Simply Chartreuse.Stamped a sentiment banner and attached it across the card front with dimensional adhesive. Finished the card off with a couple Smokey Shadow buttons.For my next card I've worked with another single image from Framed Out #3, the tiny "HI!" circle.I hand stamped a pattern strip in a color combo of Berry Sorbet, Melon Berry and Summer Sunrise and then layered a Trendy Tree Tops sentiment, in True Black, on top. Attached the stamped panel over cardstock strips of Berry Sorbet and Summer Sunrise.Next up, another combination of Framed Out #3 and Trendy Tree Tops. I began by hand stamping a pattern paper using the plaid circle in a color combo of Melon Berry, Summer Sunrise and Harvest Gold. Then attached the stamped panel to a white card base using dimensional adhesive.I then die cut the heart circle and used the tiny hearts to...Embellish each plaid circle. Then finished the card of with a sentiment, frame and rhinestones.Up next are a couple layered tree cards. This one has a bit of a masculine look with a color combo of Soft Stone, Smokey Shadow, Simply Chartreuse and Kraft.I die cut a couple kraft colored hills and attached them to the card base at different dimensions. I then assembled a layered tree and adhered it between the hills.This ones a little more girly. I began by pulling out a few Jillibean Soup pattern papers out of my stash.Again, I die cut and layered a couple hills and tucked a pattern paper tree in between. Then finished the card off with a button and a stamped sentiment (which happens to be the only stamping on this card, gasp!)Lastly, a card featuring the Trendy Tree Tops Die Collection. I began by die cutting four 1 3/4" circles from different Melon Berry pattern papers and then attached them to a Rustic White card base.
Then die cut three Trendy Tree Tops heart circles from Melon Berry cardstock. Stamped one with a Strawberry Patch sentiment (again, the only stamping) and attached over the pattern paper circles with dimensional adhesive. Finished the card off with the remaining die cut hearts.

Well, that's it from me today but do remember... both of these sets will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning April 15th. In the mean time, I'd love to know what you think so far, so please share!

  10. Trendy Tree Tops looks like such a cool set. I'm all about the modern look - so fresh and clean. My favorite card is the 2nd to last - absolutely love how you placed the "flowered" hill behind the green polka dot hill - very, very cool. Nice job!
