Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree Retiform Card

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator


Welcome to the Crafty Cupcakes Team Stampin' Up! Blog Hop for October 2017. Each month members of the Team take part in our Team Blog Hop to share with you our cards and projects made using the fabulous Stampin' Up! products. You are currently visiting Jillian Selwood from the UK and below you will see the full list of everyone taking part. To move to the next blog just click the name after mine in the list. 

This month our theme is Inspired by nature. I worked in the Falkland Islands for 14 months years ago and it was so strange to live somewhere with absolutely no trees.  When I came home I really noticed them and I realised how much I had taken them for granted before. Now I love watching the buds appearing in the Spring and equally love watching the leaves turn colour in the Autumn. Isn't nature amazing?

Lovely as a Tree Retiform card

Anyway I digress, I've wanted to make a Retiform card for a while so this seemed the perfect opportunity. What is Retiform I hear you ask? Well the official Definition of retiform is crossing lines and interstices, reticular, netlike.

Life is a beautiful thing, Trees, leaves


I used the gorgeous Stamp Set Lovely as a tree and managed to use all the stamps in the set so that was a bonus as well. The sentiment comes from the Colourful Seasons stamp set.

Lemon Lime Twist, So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach


For the inks I used Lemon Lime Twist, So Saffron, Peekaboo Peach and Basic Black Archival.

  2. Beautiful card Jillian, I had been wanting to have a go at Retiform myself but not gotten round to it. I enjoyed reading too about the difference of Falkland Islands and UK as my dad was there once long ago. :D xx
