Hello Inspired By Stamping Friends!

Happy Monday!!

Kendra here from Luv 2 Scrap n’ Make Cards to share a fun holiday card with you today!

So awhile back I shared a card, creating my own Christmas tree!!

I finally found a chance to share with you how I created it!!

I started by collecting my supplies:

Inks (Brown, Gold/Yellow, Green, Red)

Stamps

Paper

Rhinestones

You’ll especially need the Friends Forever stamp set!!  When I first seen this set when it was released the “swash” caught my eye immediately!  The possibilities are endless with this accent piece!  I seen a Christmas tree with it!!

Above is a picture of just the “swash” inked up!

I know you may be thinking I’m crazy, but keep scrolling!!

I start by inking just one end slightly, as seen below, with brown ink.  Which will become our tree trunk.

As seen below….

Super fun, don’t you think?  And we’ve just begun!!

So when beginning with the tree, I don’t ink up the entire stamp.  When I begin with the bottom, I do half, as seen pictured below…

Above is for the left obviously, and then below is for the right…

As you get closer to the top of the tree, you will be inking a lot less of each side.

Here is the first layer stamped:

I took this picture quickly, so you can still slightly see where the stamped “swashes” over lapped.

You can see the tree really starting to form at this point!  So exciting!!
Now on the 3rd layer I was able to stamp the entire image.

But now as you go further up you will need to ink even less on each side.
Keep stamping until you are happy with the top.
Here’s a look at my finished top:

Now it is time to embellish and finish!!!
Here is the card I created last time:

This is the new card I created for my post today.

Thought it would be fun to mix it up and add some pearls with the rhinestones!!
Isn’t it beautiful?!  I really like how it turned out!
The sentiment is part of the Holiday Tags stamp set and the cute star at the top is part of the Build A Stocking stamp set!!
I hope I’ve inspired you to look at your stamps differently!!

Happy Stamping!!
