Rooted In Nature

This is another card we made is our monthly club meeting.  I “borrowed” this idea from Buffy.  She made a great video showing how to get different colors in the tree.  She used Watercolor Paper, a different stamp set and spritzed the paper, which I did not but the cards are similar and I got the idea after watching her video.

You need to have a Stamparatus to make this card.  This is because you stamp the image over and over using different colors so you have exact placement every time.  This would be impossible to do without the Stamparatus.

To make this card, I first placed a piece of removable tape along the bottom of a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.  Then I sponged So Saffron, Balmy Blue and Soft Sea Foam ink onto it.  When you remove the tape, it leaves a clean line where there is no ink.

Then I placed the piece of sponged cardstock into the Stamparatus and then placed the stamp where I wanted it.  I used various Stampin’ Write Markers to make the leaves different shades of green.  I first randomly put Granny Apple Green ink with a marker on the stamp and then stamped it using the Stamparatus.  Then I did the same thing in different parts of the stamp with Old Olive, Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz.  The last thing I did was color the branches and trunk of the tree with an Early Espresso marker.  Here is a close up of the tree where you can see the different colors a little better.

The sentiments are from the stamp set called Well Said and the matching dies called Well Written.  Everything I used on this card will be in the 2019/2020 Annual Catalog.  That makes me happy!

  1. Susan this card is absolutely stunning. The coloring of the tree is perfection. The background colors are so beautiful and set off the tree perfectly. The colors are beautiful together.
