Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop - Trees & Woods

Welcome to the August 2019 Edition of the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop, featuring TREES & WOODS! You'll see projects from around the world--but I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. (Note: I can only sell to customers in the US, so any prices are in USD)

We generally hop the first Friday of each month. For this hop, I chose to feature the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. {you'll find all Product Purchase Links below the Blog Roll near the bottom of the post!}

I think the theme of Trees & Woods probably meant "woods" as in, a forest. But, for my project...I am just going with "wood" as in, a piece of wood. My stamp room is still nearly as disastrous today as it was yesterday, so once again I am also using my Cat Punch, as it is sitting here within arm's length!

This card is a great choice for a dude who loves cats, as it is decidedly less "girly" than the cat card I posted yesterday! Although, you'll want to be sure the dude you send it to doesn't mind being called FABULOUS! And, I guess the Faceted Dots might add a little more feminine sparkle than a dude might enjoy...but you could always substitute some of these metallic goodies instead: Designer Elements.

I actually fashioned this card after a birthday card I made like 3 years ago, but I don't think I ever posted that one on my blog! I managed to find a picture of it, along with a couple of other cards we made at the same's the card below with the foxes on it.

The Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder was unavailable to order for a while, as Stampin' Up! is transitioning to a direct-from-manufacturer relationship for our die cutting and embossing folder machine and supplies. But this folder is now available in Stampin' Up!'s new style, and you will get even better results with it, by using the new 3D Embossing Folder Plate in your machine "sandwich". (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, check out the video below or click here to watch it on YouTube:

  1. Very Very Cute Kimberley! I love the cats. We were thinking alike with our Pinewood Planks folders too. TFS

  2. What a great idea to recreate a previous card. I love both and this layout is perfect for any critter. Thanks for sharing x

  3. Great idea! Love how turning the punch made the cat look different!

  4. Awesome card design. Love the woodgrain background and the adorable cat silhouettes. :)

  5. That is the perfect card for my cat loving dude!! My son has a black cat and that will be his back to school card! He starts HS at the end of the month! Thanks for the inspiration!!
