Father Knows Best
This little Tree trunk and leaf stamps are just wonderful they allow you to stamp up a variegated looking tree by using different green ink tones, I used the fish bubble stamps from the Pond Life stamp set to add the berries to the tree.
Finished by stamping the sentiment and adding glossy accents to the berries and darker leaves.
then the usual layering up and a ribbon as a finishing touch.
Garden of Life
Papertrey Ink Garden of Life stamps designed by Alli Miles are just wonderful to use, most of the stamps are designed to interact with each other making them perfect for over laying.
I made a simple background by stamping in Palette sweet blush ink on a plain piece of white card stock then I folded another piece of the same card into a small tent fold card and stamped
the front face using 2 of the blossoms from the stamp set.
I notched the back of this card so that I could slot the front piece into the semi circle which is keeping it closed I used the Berry sorbet card stock and ribbon to finish the card.
I also stamped a secret message on the inside of the front card.
