I'm so excited to participate in my first Blog Hop hosted by Paper Wings. One of my favorite new stamps sets is Flourish Trees of Hope. It contains 4 trees and 8 words. I've used one tree and three words for my background. I stamped them in Palette Burnt Umber ink on Kraft cardstock.
The pattern paper is TAC's own Rustic Chic, layered over Brown cardstock. The Rustic Chic is so beautiful on it's own...I didn't stamp it at all. I added an eyelet, ribbon, sparkle and pop-dots.
Here's a close up of the sparkle - a new favorite - Stardust Clear Gelly Pen. It adds a great finishing to touch to just about anything.
Circle layer below...brown scalloped, Rustic Chic, eyelet then ribbon. Be sure to use your Stardust pen BEFORE adding eyelet and ribbon.
Other supplies used: Super Jumbo Circle Punch, Mega Scalloped Circle Punch, Mimi Ribbon, Antique Copper Hardware, "Pop-it" pop dots.
I had so much fun creating this card...I decided to pull out some more supplies and using the same stamp set - turn it into a Christmas card.
Supplies: cardstock/paper: Kraft, Brown, and TAC's Reece. Palette Landscape ink for tree, "Believe" and around the edge distressing, Palette Burnt Umber for distressing pieces of Reece cardstock. Embellished with Antique copper eyelet and Reece ribbon.
I hope you enjoyed my cards. For more creations using brand new stamp sets from TAC's 2009-2010 Inspiration book & catalogue, please check out my fellow Angel's blogs:
