Autumnal Tree


Good Evening.  Hope you had a nice day today.  It wasn't so cold here today in fact at some points it was quite warm.  Makes it much easier to enjoy this time of year.

My card today follows the sketch on Freshly Made Sketches -


This was a lovely sketch to follow and my card came together really easily.  

I started off with a Crumb cake base which I rounded the corners on.  My tree is from the beautiful stamp set Lovely as a Tree.  I stamped the trunk of the tree with my Early Espresso  stamp pad wiping away any excess from the leaves.  I then tapped Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait using my Stampin' Write Markers onto the leaves.  Isn't it great how everything with Stampin' Up! co-ordinates so you know the markers will match the ink pads and card stock?  It makes it all so easy!  

The tree panel was popped up on dimensionals and attached to Poppy Parade card.  I don't know if you can see in the photo but I added a frame of leaves using Poppy Parade ink.  This was then mounted onto Chocolate Chip card.  

The border is a Chocolate Chip base with Poppy Parade punched out using a punch out of the New catalogue available in October - Lace Ribbon Punch.  Isn't it fab?  I think this will be fantastic for scrapbooking and 3d projects too. 

The little sentiment is from the Hostess Set SiIhouette Sentiments.  A beautiful stamp set that has become a favourite of mine.  You only have till the end of the month to earn this set. It was punched out using the Oval Large Punch and mounted onto a Chocolate Chip Scallop Oval

A big welcome to Kelly, thanks for choosing to follow.  Hope you come back often. 

I'm also going to pop this card into Paper Players where the theme is animal or plants.

Thanks for stopping by.  We have a local holiday tomorrow and Monday, great to have a long weekend.  Hope you enjoy your weekend too. x

Great minds think alike! I just used a different tree from that set today and "thumped" it with my markers. :) I love the rounded edges, the leaf border, and that gorgeous strip of lace card stock. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
