Christmas Countdown | Festival of Trees

Did you know we have a whole section of Christmas crafty goodies in the Annual Catalogue this year, AND the Autumn/Winter catalogue launches on the 1st September (its good, I’ve seen it!) So, even though its August, there is now excuse for getting a head start on those Christmas Cards!

Stampin' Up! UK Festival of Trees Video Tutorial

I am so pleased this stamp set has carried over into our Annual Catalogue this year, it was definitely one of my most used sets of last Christmas – There is actually a whole weeks worth of projects on this stamp set around here somewhere – one day I might be able to work out how to link them all for you, but for now, I suggest a quick search in my search bar for Festival of Trees should come up with a decent number of results!

How To:

Select your tree stamp and three tones of Green ink. I have used Pear Pizzazz, Cucumber Crush and Mossy Meadow here.

Ink up your tree stamp with the lightest ink and stamp.

Then ink the same stamp with the next darkest ink colour, using a micro-fibre cloth (or a kitchen roll or similar) wipe away the ink on the very edges of the tree – the tips of the branches. Festival of Trees is a photopolymer stamp set and so lining up your images over the top of each other is really simple, but you could use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to help you.

Then take the darkest ink colour, ink up your stamp again, but this time wipe away all but the centre of the tree, stamp over the top of the previous to create a wonderfully dimensional tree.
