S1811 Seasonal Trees CTMH Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to November’s Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop. This is a circular hop. If you arrived from Wendy’s Blog you are in the right place. Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it. Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from. Each blog will showcase a project featuring the Seasonal Trees (S1811) stamp set which is November’s Stamp of the Month.

S1811 Seasonal Trees is available for purchase in November 2018 from www.shaunnarichards.closetomyheart.com.au

I adore the trees in this set but felt you would be seeing a lot of them as complete trees on this hop so decided to think outside the box.  I’ve added components of the trees to the card designs from the You Got This Workshop Your Way Card Kit (G1166).  I’ve also included sentiments from two other Workshop Your Way Card Kits – Epic Birthday (G1165) and Hugs for You (G1164)

The first four cards use Pattern 1 from You Got This Workshop Your Way Card Kit.  The last  two cards use Pattern 2.  I enjoyed decorating the envelop flaps to co-ordinate with the cards.

First up... First and second generation background stamping of leaves in Fern ink.

Create this card using G1166 You Got This WYW and S1811 Seasonal Trees. Available for purchase at www.shaunnarichards.closetomyheart.com.au

Card 2... Fern leaves stamped in Saffron ink

Card 3... I love this sentiment from the Hugs For You WYW kit and that little bird sitting on the letter makes me happy.  He's from the stamp of the month.

 Card 4 is the same pattern as 1,2 & 3 but has been rotated...  The leaves are half the pine tree foliage stamp.  Just had to include the little bird again.  The saffron edge on the white panel and envelope flap is also from the stamp of the month.

 Card 5... I had to find a way to fit the sentiment from (Hugs For You) and the tree so I overlapped them.  Still loving that bird!  So did my daughter's cat - she jumped onto the crafting table and added a wee smudge of pomegranate ink to the card!!!  I ran out of time to re-do the panel but I suggest you make yours without the smudge (hehehe)

Card 6... This is my final sample.  The background on the white panel was made by inking just the stem of the palm tree.  The sentiment was masked, cut, layered and popped on foam tape.

They were fun to do Louise. Didn't take long to stamp them while I had everything out.

Love that you created your own background & texture paper with the stamps to match in with the paper. And you reminded me to decorate my envelops more often so that the pretty mail stands out a little more in the letterbox. So many fab ideas.
