Happy Thursday, everyone!  The Try Stampin’ on Tuesday sketch this week was nice and simple:

and I wanted to use some of my new goodies from the Holiday catalog:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Festival of Trees Stampin Up Christmas

I used Soft Sky cardstock on a Whisper White base, with the new All is Calm Washi tape. This washi tape has a pretty silver sheen to it….can’t see it here, but it’s very chic!   I stamped a pretty tree from Festival of Trees in Encore Silver ink and punched it out with the new Tree punch---I love this punch!  I then punched a second tree in Brushed Silver cardstock and layered it behind; I used the hostess set Good Greetings to add my sentiment in Lost Lagoon.

A little splash in the creek behind our house:




Soon, it will be too cool to play in the water….autumn is coming!  Enjoy your day!


  1. LeAnne, this is such a pretty card! And I can't believe how grown up your grand girl is and she is as pretty as ever :)

  2. HI LeAnne,
    Really love your cad with the washi tape and this pretty tree. I could kick myself for not ordering this as one of my first sets from the Holiday catalog. Your grandaughter looks like she is not quite so sure about being in the water now! She's such a cutie. Makes me miss my own GDs.

  3. Clean and simple and I love it, LeAnne! I hardly ever use washi tape though I have a ton of it and more being delivered today, LOL! Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Adorable card LeAnne!
    That creek looks so clean. What creek is it. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of playing in the Brandywine that ran behind my house. Well I didn't play in it because it was very dirty but I fished and made mud pies. LOL
    The pictures are adorable!
    Have a great day.

  5. Yes I'm so sad that the summer days are quickly passing. I'm not ready for the cooler temps yet.
    This is such a pretty card. That washi tape is pretty isn't it? I love the soft Sky with the silvers in the tape and tree. Pretty combo.

  6. Beautiful card, the tree is on my wish list. Love seeing photos of Cassidy always!

  7. This is such a beautifully simple holiday card, LeAnne! I truly love the colors and everything about it. I can't wait to get my Festival of Trees stamp set and punch in the mail soon! Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesdays!

  8. This is sweet ! and ur grand daughter is so cute :)

  9. LeAnne - I have to say this is a PERFECT card! I so love the CAS ones the best! I just about spent all day making your yesterday post and alas it's too involved for a card club but I had a great time making it and am happy with it too. I'll email you when I post.
    Thanks... Barb
