Perched in a Tree

Hello fellow stampers and friends!  Hope you’re enjoying the weekend.  Doing anything special in this warm weather before the cold sets in?

Al and I went camping during the week, which was the inspiration behind this card.   While walking along we saw so many Canadian Geese, which is a sure sign the colder weather is near.  Went on a small hike to see a small waterfall and on another hike we walked through the woods.  Needless to say, inspiration was drawn from our hike in the woods.  I have no Canadian Geese stamps.  LOL.

Back home, I decided I’d better get busy in my stamp room.  I thought I had a recent post, but looking at my “dashboard” I see my last post was on September 7th.  Bad me.  I’ll try to do better.

Card Details

  • Two-tone sun-ray done in SU Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.  To do this I used my blending brushes.
  • Die cut the trees using SU Aspen Tree Dies
  • Lightly inked SU Crumb cake onto the trees
  • Cut out greenery using SU Aspen Tree Dies.  To add depth, greenery sits behind the trees and in front as well.
  • Stamped out tree branch using SU Chocolate Chip
  • Blue Bird was coloured with Prismacolor Pencil Crayons and blended with odourless mineral spirits (I googled and found a bird that looks like this one, and I coloured it referencing the photo)
  • Bird and branch were glued onto trees
  • For more added dimension pop dots were placed on the back of the trees and adhered to the card front
