It has been a while since I posted so I am going to try and catch up on the past few weeks of class projects, they just won't be in order. A great staple stamp set for male cards is Lovely As A Tree and these two cards were designed to be kept simple.
This first one used:
Card Stock: Confetti White, Old Olive, Early Esspresso
Ink: Old Olive, Early Esspresso
Stamps: Lovely As A Tree, Curly Cute
Accessories: Mini Library Clips, Dimensionals
This one didn't photograph as well as I thought when I was editing my photos and I deleted all the others I took so sorry about that. It is difficult to see but there is some "blue sky" behind the tree that was done using a clear block as the stamp. We simply inked up the surface of the block and stamped it onto the cardstock. This technique makes a great subtle background for any image.
Cardstock: Old Olive, Confetti White, Early Esspresso
Ink: Old Olive, Early Esspresso and Bashful Blue
Stamps: Lovely As A Tree
