Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #344

July 27, 2020

I was inspired by the sketch challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments to create my card today using The Tree Angle stamp set from the soon to be released August to December Mini Catalogue.  You can find this stamp set on page 22 of this Mini Catalogue.  If you don’t have a demonstrator and would like a copy of this Mini Catalogue, contact me so that we can organise to get one to you.  Another thing I love about this stamp set is that you can cut out most of the images using the Stitched Triangles Dies.  I began by embossing the top two thirds of Whisper White card using the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  I stamped the greeting from The Tree Angle stamp set onto the Whisper White card below the embossing using Real Red ink.  I attached a piece of ‘Tis The Season 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper across the Whisper White card to cover the end of the embossing.   The Whisper White panel is attached to scored and folded Garden Green card.   I cut an oval from Whisper White card using the Layering Ovals Dies and stamped the tree trunk image from The Tree Angle stamp set onto the lower portion. I cut a scalloped oval from Real Red card using the Layering Ovals Dies and attached the stamped Whisper White oval.   The panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the tree image from The Tree Angle stamp set onto Whisper White card using Garden Green ink.  I cut out the tree using the co-ordinating Stitched Triangle Die.  I attached the tree just above the stamped tree trunk.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped a greeting from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink.  I also attached a piece of the same ‘Tis The Season Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the stamped panel.

I love the result, don’t you?  Thank you so much Hand Stamped Sentiments for a great challenge (one I was finally able to complete on time!).

Bye for now,

Kris
