Tree-Mendous Caturday!

It's Caturday!! Finally!!

And finally I can show you my very first sample from the new Doodle Factory release - Into the Woods!! I love this set for so many reasons, but today, it's because I love trees almost as much as I love little stampy birds! Wait till you see what's in here that I love even more than that!

To kick off the release, I made a little Tree-mendous gift set - a bag and four cards. Each one has a different doodly "season" of sorts - with different stamps from the set featured on the trees. The greetings are FABBY with this set!!

But before I show you the project, can I just say I'm in love with my Big Shot?? DANG I love it. And today was the first time I stopped hoarding the balsa sheets from Stampin' Up! I LOVE THEM!! They cut so smoothly and perfectly!!

I used our Ovals Big Shot die, and cut ovals to frame my trees. Then I stamped the trees in Basic Black Craft Ink and let them dry. The craft ink stayed right where I put it - so crisp and nice. Then I colored the trees with Copics. They absorb color beautifully, and the more you color, the more of the grain comes through. Looky -

Cool, huh? Well then I ran some retired DSP through the Fancy Favor die to get this bag, which I embellished with a pennant with the Tree-mendous greeting and an EK success tree punch with Basic Grey DSP.

The first tree features apples, stamped on Basic Grey Red dsp, and accented with a green souffle pen and Crystal Effects. I used a Costco gel pen for the dots on the Chocolate Chip Scalloped note. I used Basic Grey DSP inside each of the cards and SU! ribbon on all.

I love the teeny acorns. :)
Then I popped them all in the bag.

I hope you guys are having a GREAT Saturday!!
