I have a fun and simple card for you today.  It stars the Trees For Sale stamp set.  The set is a sleeper in the Mini Catalog.  However, I think it is such a Fun Set!


Stampin' Up!, Trees For Sale, Festive Pearls, Blending Brushes, Layering Circles, Jackie Beers



The background is not the star of the show, but I have to begin there.   You may recognize that shape around the trees.  It is made using the negative from yesterday’s card.  I used that scalloped Layering Circles negative with Pool Party Ink and a Blending Brush to create it.  The trees were stamped while the negative was still in place to allow one to be only partially in the picture.  Hopefully you will now look at your die cut negatives with added interest!


This stamp set is named Trees For Sale, and that is the scene I created.  The trees are stamped using Old Olive Ink.  Then the detail stamp is added using Garden Green Ink.  It may be a bit on the contrast side, but I like the bolder look.

To finish I added the garland of lights at the top.  Tree lots have Christmas lights around their space for cheer and light.  Since the set is Photopolymer, I was able to bend the strand of lights to fit.  It was not quite long enough to reach side to side.  For an added touch, I added different colors of Festive Pearls as the “light bulbs”.   To finish that scene, I stamped the Trees For Sale sign and then fussy cut it.  It is placed partially outside of the circle and raised to stand out even more.
