Trendy Trees set of four cards

With an amazing 20% off selected two step stamping sets in August, there really isn't a better time to invest in a new set. And I consider the one I'm using today a particular bargain. Take a look at this set of thank you cards made with Trendy Trees - one of my favourite sets:


At only £10.36 with the discount, you get a set of eight stamps which you could use throughout the year. The two sentiments alone would be worth that!


Here's the spring version - I doodled some blossom amongst the leaves for this one.


To get the two shades of the trees in this summer card, I stamped twice without re-inking.


I do love Autumn colours! It's easy to get the variety of colours in the leaves by colouring the stamp directly with markers.


And here's the winter card. It would make a great Christmas card - especially with the addition of some glitter (my Dazzling Diamonds has just arrived and I can't wait to have a play with that!)

All the cards were made by sponging a square of Whisper White card stock with Bashful Blue ink, tearing some card stock for the ground, adding a strip of Sweet Pea designer paper to the bottom and positioning some 1/4" grosgrain ribbon over the join. The sentiment was stamped at the top using a stamp-a-majig. I selected the tree top and stamped it, then selected a tree trunk and stamped over the top using a stamp-a-majig. The trees were cut out using paper snips and adhered to the background, then the panel attached to a 3"x 3" card blank made with Kraft card stock with edges sponged with Whisper White craft ink.

Hmm. Probably easier to think of a card you COULDN'T use this set for...!
Hope you're having a happy Wednesday.
See you tomorrow for Three Minute Thursday!
