Even though I'm back studying again this week, I've managed to squeeze in some time for the MojoMonday challenge. Here's this week's sketch:
For this one, I decided to get my reinkers out for a play and combined them with the Trendy Trees (check out the discount offer here).
Stamp set: Trendy Trees
Cardstock: So Saffron, Soft Suede, Ruby Red, Whisper White
Ink: Soft Suede
Reinkers: Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron
Punch: Word Window
Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon: Soft Suede
Other: Brads (Earth Elements), Designer Button (Playground), Linen Thread
The tree trunks were stamped onto Whisper White card with Soft Suede. I dripped 2-3 drops of each reinker onto a couple of folded baby wipes to create my own mini ink pad and stamped the tree tops using my stamp-a-ma-jig to get the alignment right. The same mini ink pad was used to stamp the sentiment which was then punched out with the Word Window. I used the button and linen thread tied around folded ribbon to create a "bow". The brads were added using the mat pack to get even spacing. All the rest is matting and layering.
I made good use of the multi-coloured "ink pad", so you might see a few more variations on this card over the next few days. Right now though, I'm planning a Christmas card for the next post.
Please stop by again soon.
