The new Whimsy & Wonder Suite in the Stampin’ Up!® 2022 July – December Mini Catalog is such a fun suite of products. It includes the stamp set called Whimsical Trees, the coordinating dies called Christmas Trees, Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper, Blushing Bride 3/8″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon and Wonderful Snowflakes (which are iridescent foil). This suite was the first one that really caught my eye when I looked at the catalog because it was different and fun.
To make this card I first stamped the white tree using Soft Succulent ink and the lights (or ornaments) in Misty Moonlight. The I cut it out using the coordinating die. I cut out the rest of the tree in Evening Evergreen and Misty Moonlight and the garland in Soft Succulent card stock. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Best Wishes.
Rob and I had an exciting weekend last week. Rob is a sailor but he sold his sailboat when we bought the cottage. There is only so many days in the summer and it was hard to find time to do it all. This year he decided he wanted to get a little sailboat that he can just keep at the dock and go out when he wanted to. We put it in the water last weekend and set off in our maiden voyage. We just went across the bay when a big gust of wind came and our sailboat capsized. We were thrown into the water. Rob and I are both good swimmers so we were ok. Thankfully our neighbors saw the whole thing and came out to help. The only really bad thing that happened was I lost my prescription sunglasses in the lake. He wants to go again but I am not so sure!
