Tiny Stamps Christmas Tree * MFT Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome to a new Wednesday Sketch Challenge inspiration. We have weekly sketch challenges for you to play along, so get inspired and join the fun!


 Idea: 
  • When I first saw this weeks sketch, it looked like a Christmas tree to me. I wanted to create a tree shape using tiny stamps, ink blending and masking tape. But the tiny stamps I chose made the tree look more like a hill or mountain and I liked that too. I love when companies add tiny stamps to their stamp sets, they are fun, versatile and cute.



 Instructions: 
  • take your favorite masking tape and create a triangle on your card base. 
  • pick tiny stamps from your collection and stamp them in different color (or you can use just one) to fill the triangle. Start with the larger images and add the smallest ones in the gaps.
  • keep the masking tape in place and do some ink blending. I used regular Distress Ink because it is kind of transparent if applied with a light hand. Distress Oxide ink are more opaque and would cover the small stamped images.
  • remove the masking tape carefully
  • stamp, color and die cut your focal images like I did with the bear and the two clouds
  • stamp your greeting onto colored card stock. I used a sticky clear ink and white heat embossing powder.
  • die cut the sentiment
  • adhere the sentiment and the images with foam tape
  • decorate your triangle with gemstones or sequins to add a little glitter

 Tip: 
  • creating simple shapes with masking tape or masking paper and filling them with tiny stamped images is a fun way to create a background for any occasion. I'm sure you'll find some small stamps in your stash that are just perfect for that.
