Fall Card Featuring Build A Tree Stamp Set
Posted on August 21 2020
Hello my crafty friends! Maria here on the blog with you and it's my turn to share a fun project featuring one of my favorite stamp set from the summer release called Build A Tree along with an older stamp called Happy Fall. I absolutely LOVE that LDRS Creative makes it easy for us to mix and match stamp sets (or dies) to create a beautiful scene!
I started by stamping my images using the Raven Hybrid ink on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored them in with my alcohol markers. I used the Build-A-tree coordinating dies to die-cut them out. The Happy Fall stamp set did not come with coordinating dies so I used my precision snips to fussy-cut them.
The Background was created using the Rainy Day stencil and Marina Madness Hybrid ink. The grass was die-cut using the In the Grass die set and the Country Lane Paper Pack, while the front grass layer was just die-cut using the same grass die, and colored with alcohol markers. This gave it more texture and variation between the grass layers.
I adhered the first grass panel on the colored background with some liquid glue. Next, I foam-mounted the large tree trunk and the second grass panel for added dimension. I adhered the branches and the leaves, making sure to leave some space for my critters. I added foam adhesive to my focal image and adhered on the card. The other images were added with some liquid glue.
To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment on some black card stock using the Watermark ink. I added some white embossing powder and used my heating tool to heat-set the sentiment. I didn't want to add more bulk to the card so I adhered this with some liquid glue. Here's another look:
Fall is my favorite season and I love creating fall cards. LDRS Creative has so many cute stamp sets and it was so hard for me to pick and choose which one to feature today. I really had so much fun creating this fall scene. I hope you like it too. Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!
