Forest of Festival of Trees

Continuing our journey with the Festival of Trees, today I have a more technique based card.

Stampin' Up! UK Festival of Trees gradient stamping

This card is a Mossy Meadow card base, with Very Vanilla card front. The Trees are triple stamped – first stamped in Pear Pizzazz, the Old Olive and finally Mossy Meadow – but each time some ink is removed from the stamp before stamping, using a microfibre cloth. This means that the Pear Pizzazz layer is the whole tree, then ink up the stamp with Old Olive – rubbing the very edges of the stamp with your cloth to remove the ink from the tips of the leaves, then stamp. As Festival of Trees is a Photopolymer stamp set this is super easy, but you could use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to make this even easier. Then ink the stamp again with Mossy Meadow this time, removing all the ink except the very middle / trunk of the tree. This technique creates a lovely gradated image.

The sentiment on this card is from White Christmas

Dont forget to check back again tomorrow for another Festival of Trees project
