The Global Stamping Friends are hopping again and this month's theme is Trees and Wood. This is right in my comfort zone! My dad is a wood aficionado! He makes wooden bowls, spurtles and more.
There are so many great trees and wood products available from Stampin' Up! I chose to use the Silhouette Scenes bundle and the Pinewood Planks 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and used Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie and Mango Melody inks applied with a Stampin Sponge Brayer. The sponge brayers are really easy to use and give great ink coverage. I added some drops of water by spraying a Stampin' Spritzer into the palm of my hand and flicking the water onto the cardstock. I patted the excess away with some kitchen roll. I cut two trees - one in Whisper White and one in Crumb Cake. I embossed the Crumb Cake die cut with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. It hasn't shown up well in the photo but this is a 3D folder so the impression really stands out in real life. I offset the trees to make them pop. Finally I heat embossed my image and sentiment in Copper Stampin' Embossing Powder using Versamark ink and a heat tool. I will never get bored of heat embossing!
I hope you'll keep hopping with us on our journey with Trees and Wood. I can't wait to see everyone else's take on this theme. Click the next image below to keep hopping to June's wonderful creation.
Until next time, happy crafting
