Leaves & Trees


This card began with a Thick Whisper White card base layered with Woodland embossing. The leaves and tree “slice” are from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set.

I stamped the leaves in Pear Pizazz Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, using an Aqua Painter and additional ink, to achieve the watercolored look.

The tree “slice” was stamped in Early Espresso Ink on Whisper White Cardstock, and fussy cut with Paper Snips. The leaves were cut with a die from the coordinating, Nature’s Roots Die Set, and placed on Dimensionals.


“Happy” is from the Merry Christmas Die Set, cut from Whisper White Cardstock, that I colored with Calypso Coral Ink by using a Sponge Dauber. It has three layers, so the “y” that is hanging off will be sturdy.

“Birthday” is from the Well Said Stamp Set, stamped in Early Espresso Ink, also cut with a Merry Christmas Die. I was able to place a Mini-Dimensional beneath it for support.


For some sparkle, I added a few Iridescent Sequins, in colors close to Pear Pizazz and Calypso Coral.


My colors are from the TGIF challenge.
