Wood You Be Mine?

Happy New Year and welcome to the January 2015 Jacksonville Starz Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from Monique Zimmer's blog.

The theme for this month is Valentine's Day and I decided to make a card with one of the cute new stamp sets from the Stampin' Up! 2015 Occasions Catalog that goes live on January 6th.  I combined Wood You Be Mine? with Lovely as a Tree to create my card.
Don't you just love this ruggedly handsome lumberjack.  LOL
Directions for my card:
  • Old Olive cut 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 for card base
  • Rich Razzleberry cut 5 1/4 x 4
  • Whisper White cut 5 1/8 x 3 7/8
  • Whisper White 2 x 1 1/2 for sentiment
  • Rich Razzleberry 2 1/8 x 1 5/8
  • Old Olive 2 1/4 x 1 3/4
  • Whisper White 3 x 2 1/2 for lumberjack
  • Whisper White 3 3/4 x 2 for tree
  • Use Old Olive ink and stamp a row of tree tops onto the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock.  Use Rich Razzleberry to mat this piece and then glue it to the Old Olive card base.
  • Using Memento Black ink stamp the sentiment and the lumberjack on the appropriate Whisper White cardstock pieces.  Use Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive cardstock to mat the sentiment.
  • Color the lumberjack using Blendabilities and cut him out.
  • Use Old Olive ink and stamp the tree on Whisper White.  Sketch in the tree trunk with a Crumb Cake Blendabilities marker and cut the tree out.
  • Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the sentiment, the tree and the lumberjack.
  • Using the Heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, punch out a Rich Razzleberry heart and attach it to the sentiment with a Stampin' Dimensional.
