Here's what I came up with using an older SU! set called Sheltering Tree...
Using the same TREE stamp I made a Fall/Thank You card and a Christmas card.
I have been wanting to try my hand at this style of card for awhile now where you stamp the TREES all around the edge of your card so it looks like you're looking up through the center of a group of TREES. I started by stamping the TREE bases first in dark brown ink, and then used the 2nd stamp for the leaves using yellow, orange, & red inks on each tree...working my way around like I was stamping a wreath! I used a little bit of blue ink in the very center for my sky and then added my die cut grateful sentiment (PTI's Counting My Blessings) in the middle.
My Christmas card uses the same TREE stamped on a gray card panel, and then I used white pigment ink on the leaf stamp and for the ground stamp. I added a red cardinal for a pop of color (PTI's In The Meadow dies) and the sentiment is from Penny Black's Yuletide Wishes stamp set. I matted the light gray panel to a darker gray panel and adhered both to a top folding white card base. This was a pretty easy card to make but I love the way it turned out!!
Check out all the great inspiration from the DT and our Special GD's this month right HERE. We can't wait to see what YOU come up with using the TREE prompt. This challenge is open till the 24th.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
