Pilin' On the Stash

The themes this month at Pile It On are Try a New Technique and/or Use Your Oldest Stash. You can choose one or both themes, and you may enter the challenge as many times you like, as long as you are inspired by at least one other Challenge theme. We're sponsored by Becky’s Place. Becky also has a great blog with tons of goodies, including card fold tutorials.

I used one of the first rubber stamps I ever purchased, way back in 2010.

The card base was die-cut with the Tri-Shutter Card Bigz Big Shot Pro Die from Sizzix. I stamped the tree with Versamark & used 3 different green embossing powders. The sentiment is a clear stamp from my stash, embossed in the darker green, and the leaves are from Verve Stamps & are embossed in Olive.

  2. That's a really clever fold. I didn't know you could get a die to cut it like this. The tree is very striking in the different greens. Thank you for joining in with my tictactoe challenge at Retro Rubber.
