Hail to Order of the Opus Gluei

Hey there stampers! Happy Tuesday!  The kids are back to school! Can I get a Woo Hoo!?!?
Today I decided to play along with the fabulous ladies over at the Opus Gluei blog.  What's the theme?  "Let's Trim Down".  Well I am for sure doing that after eating all those dang holiday cookies and yummy fattening appetizers!  But they mean to trim down our stashed hoards of crafting stuff...come on you know what I am talking about... the awesome embelishments you bought but haven't used cuz they're just so neat so you are "saving" them for that special card or scrapbook page.  I have drawers FULL! 

Here's my card using from my stash of Corderoy Buttons/Brads in Pumpkin Pie (but I have ALL the colors!).  I also used some of my card guts-left over card kits from some of my stamp camps-and one of my favorite sets, The Season Of Friendship-it's retired but I LOVE it!


  1. Stamp the tree from the Season Of Friendship stamp set in Close to Cocoa on Very Vanilla card stock.  Add the leaves in Old Olive (stamped off first) and add some Pumpkin Pie Corderoy Buttons.
  2. Stamp the sentiment in Chocolate Chip Ink.
  3. Mat onto Kraft card stock, then Chocolate Chip card stock and finally onto your Very Vanilla card base.


  • STAMPS: Season Of Friendship
  • INK: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
  • PAPER: Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Very Vanilla
  • ACCESSORIES: Pumpkin Pie Corderoy Buttons

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you hop on over and say hi to the Opus Gluei girls!



  1. Love this card. It's great to use what you have. Especially when it turns out this cute. Reminds me of the orange trees in the backyard when I was growing up. We're glad to see you back with us at Opus Gluei.

  2. This is such a fun post! I love it and I really love your card! It's clever, got lots of nice touchy feely embellishment, and it's colorful! You do beautiful projects.

    So glad that you are playing with us and hope you'll come back throughout the year!

  3. I love this card too, and yes, you get a big Woo Hoo! from me!

  4. and you know, anytime you put Hail to the Order of the Opus Gluei, you know we're going to enjoy THAT! You're a treat, lady!
