Tree of Gratitude

Stampin' Royalty     SR#94-Sketch
DYSU Challenge Blog     DYSU#42-Trees
Splendiferous Creations     Bloggers Challenge-Fall Blooms

You can see from the list above how I came up with the idea for this card. A sketch, and 2 themes.
I used 4 ink pads to create this tree. Starting with the lightest color and tapping the corner of the ink pads in different spots on the stamp, then a light spritz with water and stamp. I got a pretty fall tree.
Usually when you think of fall blooms you think of flowers, but acorns are fall blooms also and the beautiful leaves changing colors are as pretty as any flower to me.

Supplies: 4" X 5 1/2" Always Artichoke card blank, Papers: Stampin Up-Always Artichoke, Naturals card stock, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Welcome Neighbor Designer Series Paper Pad, Stamps: Stampin Up-Lovely As A Tree, Day of Gratitude, Inks: Stampin Up-Soft Suede, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, VersaMark Ink, Judi-Kins copper embossing powder, Fiskars-Scallop Sentiment border punch, Spellbinders Nestabilities-Labels Sixteen, Stampin Up dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
