Simple Saturday Season of Friendship

Stampin up season of friendship tree
It's Saturday and who has time to make a complicated card?  Today's card is the very essence of clean and simple.  It assembled in less than 10 minutes.  And look how short the supply list is (below).  Woo hoo!

I think Marina Mist adds a thoroughly modern spin on this set!  Please let me know what you think with a comment below.  I love hearing from you 🙂


  • Stampin up season of friendship tree close up The sweet set of leaves from the Stampin' Up! Season of Friendship stamp set are quick work when cropped with a 3/4" Circle Punch.  The same punch works beautifully with the bird, flower and snowflake from the set, too.
  • I love the look of white on white.  The sentiment on Whisper White card stock gets a nice boost from Stampin' Dimensionals.  Chic and easy.
  • I stamped my tree a tad high.  Yipes!  Two skinny strips of Marina Mist help rebalance the card and give it a unique finish.  A good masculine card, in my opinion.

  1. So pretty, I love blue! It doesn’t look like a 10 minute card!
    How do you do it, day after day after day?
    Prolly, a little thing called talent.

  2. Hi Chris . . . OK, I’ll roll with your suggestion . . . yep, I “planned” it . . . I “plan” many of my cards the same way. LOL. Speaking of the blue. I just created 5 more of these cards for my Pals birthdays. The Cherry Cobbler version was gorgeous (used the flower stamp). Hugs, M

  3. Uber-fabulous Mary! I love, love ,love the idea to punch out the leaves in a circle. Such a clean and simple touch that is perfect for a masculine card. And the little strips at the bottom are a brilliant way to mask the oops! Cheers!

  4. Love it! Now come on Mary, we know you needed a strip of grass under the tree – don’t lie to us about stamping it too high! We know you planned that all along! 🙂 I really liked the blue for a nice change. As always, thanks for sharing your talent with us!

  5. Hello Mary: WOW!!!!! Beautiful, simple, clean and elegant. Perfect for a quick greeting of any kind.
    Thank you for sharing. You always keep all of us inspired.

  6. It is great to see this set again – I have always liked it and now you have made it look so new and fresh — great idea! Thanks, you are such an inspiration!!

  7. I love the clean and simple look of this card! I’m going to a shoebox swap in a couple of weeks and this would be the perfect type of card for that. I may just have to CASE it. Thanks for the inspiration! Enjoy the weekend!
