My project today was made using the Leafy Tree One, Branches of a Tree, Beach Chairs, Small Grass Border, Leaves and Stems and Tiny Flowers

I love making black, white and red projects.  I thought this tree would be so pretty stamped in black on a white background and paired with a silhouette scene made using the beach chair, grass and flowers.  This was a fast and easy project and I love the outcome.

I stamped the tree and sentiment with black versafine.  I attached the tree scene to a black layer and popped it up on the card base with mounting tape.

I attached the grass to the bottom of the scene with thin strips of mounting tape and tucked the flowers and stems in behind the grass with glossy accents.  I thought adding a few red flowers in the tree branches would carry the eye up from the heavy black scene.

  1. Great use of the tree stamp….nice color contrast. I have the chair die and love it….lots of uses, especially for those of us who live in coastal areas. Great post, as always.

  2. This card is just stunning! Very interesting how you used the outline tree with the silhouette dies – Your red flowers make it work together so beautifully.

  3. Just looking at this card gives me peace Kittie…most serene. I am loving the new IO stamps…hope to see you do something with the see saw…notice a lot of silhouettes…love the verse on this one of yours today…just love those chairs. Wel done my dear.

  4. Great job! I love how you put your scene together, and I also think you were rightto put the pop of red in the tree.

  5. This is a great scene! The chair & grass appear to be in the shade while the tree is in sunshine. Love the red pops of color.

  6. Striking color combination. I hadn’t thought to use the beach chair as a silhouette. Great idea! I really like the sentiment too.

  7. Good Morning, Kittie,I love trees. they have a personality of their own, changing with each season. There is peace sitting under a beautiful tree, with a nice book, lemonade, or just talking to friends. Love your concept with the images. the sentiment is perfect, colors too……have a good day.

  8. Great card, as always, Kittie! I’m not an outdoor person at all, but whenever you do a scene with a chair, I always wish I could be sitting there. πŸ™‚

  9. Love the silhouette effect of the chair and grass with the stamped tree along with the cute little red flowers, so very pretty.

  10. Makes me really miss those summer days. It’s going to 0 degrees tonight.
    Love the grass at the bottom, the chair, and the trees. Makes a wonderful scene.
    thanks for sharing

  11. I love getting your emails. Every card you make is awesome. Thanks for all your inspiration. This year, I am trying to make some of my cards look like yours with the layering and all the tiny flowers. I love the tiny flowers.
    Oh, and I love the card.

  12. OMGosh – what a card – full of style and done in my absolute favorite combo of colors – red, white and black. Gorgeous!

  13. Wow, I love how you die cut the grass in a dark card stock that matches the beach chairs for a silhouette effect! Just wonderful

  14. Hi Kittie…. I had to take a taxi to get to the end of your comments… lol.
    I love this card…. I sometimes get away from stamping and just play with the dies and this helps to bring the stamps back out for me. I love how clean this card is…. Thank you for sharing your wonderful creativity……

  15. There is that chair again. Love it. The colors of red and black work so well and the chair and grass appear to be silhouetted. Love the use of the little red flowers. Great details. Nice job!! TFS

  16. You knocked this one right out of the park. The color combo is so pure and the juxtapostion of the colors really commands great attention. I LOVE it, LOVE it, LOVE it. Thanks for always being so willing and kind about sharing your treasures with us.
