Peace Tree * Reverse Confetti

Hello and welcome to the last post of my Reverse Confetti September release inspiration series.

The tree stamp I used on todays card is actually a gift (free with purchase $60) from Reverse Confetti! It is a geometric stamp set that is super easy to stamp and fun to combine with what you already have.

 Idea: 

  • I wanted to share an idea on how to use this fun stamp set together with an older one. I think the penguin and the bird are talking about what color scheme they will have on their tree this year ;-)



 Instructions: 
  • stamp the stem on your white card panel (use paper that goes well with dye inks) with light brown ink using Peace Tree
  • stamp the smallest triangle in light green using a stamping tool (like the MISTI)
  • use a small sponge dauber to add a darker shade of green ink to the same small triangle, but just on the bottom half of it
  • re-stamp the small triangle and you will get an ombré look on the top piece of your tree
  • repeat the last three steps with the middle and the largest triangle, always creating an ombré look
  • stamp, color and die cut/fussy cut the penguin and the bird using alcohol markers
  • mask off the ground (unter the tree) with some ripped masking tape and do some very soft ink blending, just to create a difference between the sky and the snowy ground
  • remove the masking tape and adhere the critters
  • stamp the sentiment and add some sparkle to the tree using Stickles


 Tips: 
  • using small sponge daubers to add ink to your solid stamps helps you get an ombré look which makes your solid stamps look more three dimensional 

I hope you got inspired and will be back soon for more inspiration. Check out the Reverse Confetti Blog for lots of wonderful projects and ideas.
