I hope you enjoyed my past few days of sneak peeks. I appreciate all the sweet comments! Check out all my Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini samples by clicking here. How about another new set and designer paper?
I'm confident this set will be hot, hot, hot. It's Season of Friendship . . . a very cool, modern looking tree with four options for the branches (or otherwise). You get to play with a bird, flower, snowflake or the leaves I used on today's post. TIP: These little guys could easily be placed directly on the tree using a Stamp-a-ma-jig. However, I saw this simple punch idea in the new Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini (available for customer order October 1). So keep reading.
The Sage Shadow card base is 5.5 x 4.25", scored at the top. It's topped with a brand new Designer Series Paper (also from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini) called Autumn Vine (key colors: Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, More Mustard, Sage Shadow).
I stamped the tree in Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla card stock. Using my Stampin' Up! Markers, I directly colored each leaf of the stamp a different color (left to right: More Mustard, Really Rust, Sage Shadow). TIP: Just before stamping, "huff" lightly to get the stamp uniformly moist for transfer of the marker ink. Works like a champ.
TIP: My 3/4" Circle Punch saved the day. I popped out each of the leaf elements and mounted them on Stampin' Dimensionals. The sentiment was inked in Chocolate Chip and stamped on Really Rust card stock. I clipped the left side with a Corner Rounder Punch and added More Mustard Brads on the right. The sentiment is attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. The tree was matted on Sage Shadow and Chocolate Chip.
I'm ready for fall and baking some delicious apple crisp. How about you?
Hugs and Pretties . . . . Mary
