Hi everyone! When this cute gal came out awhile back I knew I had to have her! We have one granddaughter that especially loves to swing and she loves cards too! I love it when the idea for personalizing a card comes easy!
Here’s my version of the swinging ‘whee’ girl in action…she’s cute! You can see it a lot better on You Tube, HERE.
I basically followed MFT’s video but I used dies I already owned. I added a tree trunk from the Memory Box Weeping Willow Tree Cutting Plate but I see it’s discontinued. There are other tree dies though that would work… like this one HERE. You could also hand cut one really easy. I haven’t seen anyone else using a tree trunk but I think it makes it look more realistic… when I first saw the cards made up, I thought weird, green clouds! lol
I used poppystamps Stitched Cloudline dies and die cut them and the grass borders from Taylored Expressions Granny Smith cardstock. I’m really happy with how they turned out!
I stamped her in the MISTI with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and die cut her then colored her with Copic Sketch Markers. Hair E21, E43, 44, 47, Skin E000, YR000, E00, E01, R20, Shirt E02, 04, Shorts B 91, 93, 95, 97, Shoes T1,3, 5, Swing seat and rope E20’s, white space between the swing ropes is colored with B21.
I stamped the sentiment from the set in the MISTI with Black Archival ink.
My cardbase is Gumball cardstock from Bazzill or Taylored Expressions has it also. Links below…
Thanks for ‘swinging’ by today! Holler if you have any questions!
Here’s some links to stuff I used to make this card…thank you so much for supporting me and my blog! I appreciate it!

Love this one Pam. I love to make them special for everyone-sometimes hard to do-so I
love it when I find the perfect stamp that works!!!
Well, geez, this is the cutest card I’ve seen yet with this stamp, and I’ve seen a bunch! OMG, the tree is perfect! I see I need the Stitched Cloudline die. I’ve been wanting some clouds like this, and now I see it can make the most amazing tree tops and bushes, too. Wonder how long I can wait to order it? I’ll say it again… it’s neverending!!
Wow, Pam!! I adore this card! It’s beyond beautiful!! Your granddaughter will LOVE it! What a clever idea!! This may be my favorite card yet!!
