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.
- 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 ;-)
- 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
- 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
