I heart using a new stamp.....

I really do! There is just something about inking up a pristine stamp that makes me all giddy. And with this card - I got to do it....TWICE! Oh yeah - I was getting my ink on!

Come a little closer:

I also added a little crystal laquer to the little leaves on the inside.

Stamps used: F182 Round Leafy Tree, D114 Small Leafy Topiary

Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think....good or bad....or even better - what would you have done differently??...crafty minds wanna know!


  1. 1st. I love the flamingo that always models your cards. I need to get something similar--too cute.
    2nd. the card is A-mazing!
    3rd. what's crystal laquer?
    come by for a laugh today:

  2. Again girl...WOW!!! Umm, yeah, in the mail...TODAY thankyouverymuch ;) (hehehe) This tree is one of my faves and you showcased it beautifuly! Who would have thought to turn the topiary on its side and make a border...simply beatuiful!! Ohh this card makes me smile!!!!

    Georgie - Crystal Laquer is basically the same as Glossy Accents by Ranger. Wendy & I perfer to use Crystal's better due to the wonderful tiny tip...notice the leaves on Wendy's full sized tree...can't do that with Glossy Accents tip!Hop on over to and check it out :)

  3. Oh, this is so pretty, Wendy! I love flipping the topiary to the side too. After seeing DeNami DT member, Wendy, do it, I've been doing it pretty much everytime I use this stamp. :)

  4. I love this card! Great ideas all coming together! I forget to make "windows" and they add just a bit of special to a card!

  5. Gorgeous card! Gotta love those leafy tree & topiary stamps!
