Trendy Trees Weekend Sketch



Good Saturday Morning Peeps!

Today's card is made for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. This weekend Sharon is the hostess of the challenge.

I love this sketch! I used my new set "Trendy Trees". The stamp-a-ma-jig is a must have tool with this set!

I again used some of my new paper as well the DS paper called Good Morning Sunshine, i think that is the name, I guess I should check these things out better before I start typing! LOL!!!

The tree tops are stamped in kiwi kiss ink onto PTI White cardstock. Then this is where you need your stamp-a-ma-jig, to line up the tree trunk stamp. It is stamped with chocolate chip ink. I used my aquapainter to color in a little ground under the trees. I layered that onto a piece of CC cardstock. I used dimensionals to mount that onto the DS piece, which has a layer of kiwi behind it and it was punched with one of my new Fiskar edge punches. I used some big ol' white brads on the side. This layer was also put on with dimensionals.

The next layer is some summer sun DS paper from that above mentioned pack and it was also layered onto some kiwi cardstock. then the whole thing was layered onto a base of chocolate chip.

My sentiment is from the set also and was stamped with cc ink onto some scrap white and punched out with the word window punch. I then used a slightly larger piece of CC to make the mat for the sentiment piece and I used the corner rounder punch on it. I then punched out a flower with kiwi and added a small white brad to the center of it. The whole sentiment piece is also mounted with dimensionals to the base.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and Have a great weekend and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!

I really like this card....I may have to case it but I don't think I have the paper...guess I will have to order it next week. I think it would be a great sympathy card.
