I am proud to say that I am now the owner of this gorgeous stamp set. This is a set that I have admired for so long and never purchased. I got it as a gift from Stampin’ Up! for presenting at our Regional Training day in Sydney a couple of weeks ago and I finally had a chance to ink it up the other day. You’ll be seeing this one a lot over the next little while ;-). When I get a new stamp set I seem to want to use it on everything!!
For this card I used a rectangle mask (a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with a rectangle cut out of the middle) and stamped the 6 trees stamp in the window. Next I took my Stampin’ Sponge and sponged a shadow with Mellow Moss ink in the window made with the mask in place (I used the Two Way Glue Pen to hold it in place…..just let the glue dry so it is no longer blue and it acts like a post-it-note).
Next I stamped the big tree in Always Artichoke and lightly dotted 2 Way Glue Pen over the needles and branches before pouring Dazzling Diamonds glitter over the top. The word Celebrate is from the Wonderful Words stamp set and I stamped that down the bottom in Always Artichoke. This is a fairly simple card, you could dress it up with a bit of ribbon if you wanted to but I like the simplicity of the card the way it is.
We will be making similar cards at my Stamp-a-Stacks this month, so come along and learn how to use the masking technique on your cards as well as a fun technique called Faux Shaving Cream!
