It’s Time for Fall Stamping!
It’s “Back to School” time which means it is also time for fall stamping! With that in mind I created several card samples using the Thoughtful Branches Bundle that is this month’s special promotion stamp set and coordinating thinlits. I am featuring one here today. You can find another one on my Facebook page.
I love (and miss) the fall season so cards like this are easy and fun for me to create. I love how the dots of colors on the trees look so much like the trees I used to see while driving on the country roads in Maryland.
I started by stamping the tee trunk image from Thoughtful Branches multiple times on Whisper White card stock using Early Espresso ink. Then I lightly inked the bottom portion using Soft Suede ink and Stampin’ Up!’s NEW Sponge Brayer. (Loving it!) I stamped the “hills” using Soft Suede and filled in the grass using a combination of Soft Suede and Wild Wasabi ink.I then added the colorful “leaves” first with Crushed Curry, then followed with Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze. I felt it needed a bit more color so added a layer of Wild Wasabi “leaves” as well. I finished the card by adding some Clear Wink of Stella highlights and then layering it on Pumpkin Pie before attaching it to an Early Espresso card base. I cut the card front a bit shorter and added a pop of Pumpkin Pie card stock to the bottom of the inside of the card.
