Wasn’t yesterday’s Blog Hop wonderful? There is always a great variety of stamps, colors, and embellishments. Today I have used the same stamp set as yesterday. I am on a more masculine streak it seems. Today’s card would be perfect or Father’s Day.
I made yesterday’s card over a week ago, and as I was writing this post realized how very alike these two cards are. I am not sure if that is good or bad!!
This card is quite a lot of green. I used he Handwritten stamp as the background and stamped in Soft Sea Foam. The sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow. I used Stampin’ Write Markers in the Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede for the tree. The leaves/branches are Old Olive both full strength and stamped off.
To give the sentiment layer some depth without trying to cut and piece the punch to create a background, I have a very easy method I use. I simply run my Stampin’ Write Marker around the edge of the punched piece a time or two. My holding the marker almost flat, I touch the fatter part of the large tip end on the edge of the cardstock. Give it a try, I believe you will like the result.
Thank you very much for hopping yesterday and for coming back today. I promise to use a different stamp set tomorrow! LOL… All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.
It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. I would love to have you join my team. A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first. Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early. For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator. Of course, the discount helps! If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.
