Go Climb a Tree with Stampendous!

Hello! The Stampendous team has been inspiring you all week to go out and climb trees...or at least to craft with trees as the subject. I have a really fun card to share with you today.


I started off with the inside of the card for this piece...but I'll share the outside with you first. I made the sentiment using 3 different stamps from the Discover Today Perfectly Clear set. Then I added the little icons from the Charmed Art set. I inked the edges and added it to some leftover scraps I had distressed and added to my card base. Now for the inside.....

How fun is this?! I used the super cool Pop Up Die set along with the Cling Pop Up Forest Stamp set and the coordinating Dies. I also used a grass stamp from the brand new Cling Create Fall set on the bottom half of the card.

I stamped out all of my images on watercolor paper and started to watercolor them in. After I was done, I used the die set to quickly and (really!) easily cut out all of the pieces. I was grateful that I didn't have to fussy cut all of these parts. Then I started to assemble my tree.

You can see here why the Pop Up Die set is so cool. It creates tabs for you to easily make your cards have fantastic dimension. There's also an extra little nifty gadget that I added to my card. I made a short video to show you...because pictures don't do it justice.


HERE is my video.
