Dear Ones~

This is the last of the cards that I needed to put on my blog. I really love this one. Lots of sponging.

I used the stamp set from Kitchen Sink called Multi-Step Pine Trees. This is just a lovely set, with 3 different size trees. The dimension on the final image is amazing. And here's a tip I learned from Frenchie Martin. Take a dark brown marker and color in the trunk of the tree here and there, as I have done here. It makes the trees so much more real. On this card I stamped the largest image using all 4 stamps on a piece of white card. Then I masked the tree and sponged in the sun using a circle mask. After I was done sponging I took the 2nd step stamp for the medium sized tree and only stamped with that. I love the delicate image you get with just the one stamp. Then I stamped the greeting with the Kitchen Sink 3-Step Baseball Stamp Set on vellum and white heat embossed it.
Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White, Dusty Rose and Wild Dandelion Card Stock
KSS 3-Step Base Ball Stamp for Greeting

  1. This is so gorgeous. I so love the colors you used on it and I must remember to add the trunk to my trees as well.

  2. Fantastic card! The masking & sponging you did is outstanding. Just beautiful! P.S. I couldn't leave a comment on your Baseball card because it kept taking me to Pinterest when I clicked on "comments."

    1. Yes, that happened to me as well. I have no idea how to fix it. I see Verna was able to comment, so I don't know what's going on.....boo!!!

  3. So stunning -- those layers tress are gorgeous

  4. This is so beautiful!! "Serenity" is the perfect title. Your masking & sponging is pure perfection.

  6. stunning Judy! Great tree stamp and your sponging is so good!

  7. How did I miss this one? I must have been laying on the couch yesterday. I love the trees in this stamps set and thanks for the tips on stamping them. I have this set and I was tickled pink to find them in my stash today. I didn't think that I brought them along.
