Hello! Is your summer winding down?
School starts September 5 for my kiddos, so we are trying to get in a few last minute summer activities before all the hoopalah begins. And what better way to begin than by making TY cards for the teachers? *smile*
The 4-stamp Apples & Pears set is on sale all this week at Denami.
I created two completely different but similar (both trees) cards to showcase this versatile set:)
I stamped the large winter tree onto patterned paper and randomly cut around the branches to give bushy definition. Then stamped it again onto my main panel for the trunk, and adhere the PP on top. I also paper pieced the apples, so they could hang off the tree and look realistic. Then I used a tiny 2-leaf stamp and added a few leaves to the tree. A sentiment and some twine finished it off. (I added the "teacher" part of the sentiment myself)
For this card, I was attempting to create a Partridge In a Pear Tree holiday theme.
I stamped the open pear image repeatedly in a triangle shape, drew a simple trunk at the bottom, and colored them in with copics. For the partridge I used small tweety bird, and drew a head piece to make him look like a partridge. The sentiment is one of my favorite mixed fonts!
Be sure to check out the Denami blog for all the creative ideas using this set of Apples & Pears by the rest of the Design team!
