Treehouse Adventure Easel Card

How to Make an Easel Card

Hello Friends,

Do you have kids in your life?  The Treehouse Adventure stamp set by Stampin' Up! has kids written all over it.  For the next 3 days, I'll share a parade of projects made with the Treehouse Adventure stamp set.  Starting with this playful Easel Card.  It's my salute to a fabulous kids stamp set. 

The Treehouse Adventure stamp set is on the 2019 Stampin' Up! Retirement list.  Which means that it will only be available for just a little while longer.  


Treehouse Adventure Stampin' Up!

This card may look complicated at first glance, but it's really just a series of stamping, cutting and scoring.  Not mention, it's really a lot of fun to watch your card come to life.  You really don't have to be a master crafter to make this Treehouse Adventure Birthday Card.  Let me share a few tips on how to make this Easel Card.


Treehouse Adventure Stampin' Up!

Treehouse Adventure Easel Card Tips

Start by stamping your tree and treehouse.  I used Lemon Lime Twist (retiring), Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch, Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy, Soft Suede and Basic Gray Inks.  Some of my elements were started then fussy cut.  And others, such as my tree trunk, tire swing, sign, grass, and sentiment were stamped directly on my card face.  Then, I adhered my cut images to build my treehouse.

Hint:  To say "Happy Birthday" with different shades of Navy simple stamp multiple times before inking you stamp again.  This Technique is called Stamping Off.

To make the easel, simply cut a 4-1/4" x 11" card base.  Then, score your card base at 5-1/2" and 2-3/4".  Fold to form a triangle.  Adhere your card front to the front side of that triangle.

To make everything stamp up, you will need a support piece.  On my card, I layered a series of rectangles and popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  This is the catch to hold your easel in place.

I did swipe the base sentiment (Hope Your Day is Filled with Fun and Lots of Happy Surprises!) from the Postcard Pals stamp set.  Sadly, this cute stamp set is also retiring.

Color Throwdown

Wishing You Well Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Are you new to stamping and Card Making?  Or have you been around the block a few times, but still prefer the quick and simple, Back to Basics type cards?  You like to stamp, but your time is limited.  Simply seeing what happens when you combine stamps, ink and paper brings you joy.  If that's you, stop back every Tuesday for a Simple Stamping project here at Stamping Country.

One of my very favorite stamp sets for Simple Stamping is the Wishing You Well stamp set.  I especially like to stamp the bow.  Tap, tap, tap your stamp to your ink pad, apply to your paper and watch the magic.  The Wishing You Well bow almost looks 3-D.

Winter Woods Dashing Deer Shadow Box Card

Winter Woods, Dashing Deer Shadow Box Card

Hello Friends,

Today, I teamed 2 of my favorite Stampin' Up! Holiday Bundles, Winter Woods and Dashing Deer, to make this spectacular Shadow box card.  I admit that I'm a bit infatuated with Shadow Box Cards lately.  It all started with this Animal Outing Shadow box card that I made 3 weeks ago along with a tutorial on How to Make Shadow Box Cards.


Winter Woods Dashing Deer Stampin' Up!

Since I built this card from the inside out, I'll skip to the inside Shadow box first.  Don't you just love the way the Dashing Deer and the Winter Woods create a serene scene?  The Wood Textures Designer Papers make my card woodsy and outdoorsy and oh so masculine.   This is the perfect card for the men in your life.

Let's skip back to our equally handsome card front.  Love the rich wood grains combined with the deer and the pine bough.  I borrowed my birthday sentiments from the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set.
