This week at Shopping Our Stash
, the challenge is to use three trees
! Chrsitmas trees, spooky Halloween trees, or you can stretch it like I always do...
The "three trees" here are literally three species of tree leaves: my guesses from left to right are valley oak (Quercus lobata
), black oak (Quercus kelloggii
) and... the last one was tough-- I'm thinking an immature cottonwood leaf or something non-native/ornamental. But I'm a freak about it, so I'll be updating this post!
Supplies and notes:
- This card was made entirely using dismantled cards. I recently weeded my card stash: I filled a gallon-sized bag with cards for the Student Services Coordinator to use, I used a few cards, and some cards I saw and thought, "I hate this card... I'm not giving that to anyone!" So I tore them apart and kept any reusable scraps.
- Salvaged cardstock was either diecut or embossed.
- The sentiment was a little scrap, already stamped. I used Iced Spruce and Peeled Paint Distress Stains.
I think it's a nice, mellow card that could be used for multiple occasions. It was certainly an effective way to shop my stash! What will you find in your stash? Go ahead and be a Looky-Lou and see what my teammates at SOS
found in their stashes! See you over there!
Remember, no pressure... just dig through your stash and make something... a card, a scene, an ornament!
