Oak House Studio – Trees Stamp Set

Hi Everyone

MJ has gone stamping tonight for her post using the fabulously versatile Oak House Studio’s Pure Colour Chemistry Inks and Pads together with the Tree Stamp Set.

Look out on Hochanda this Friday, 4th December at 3pm and 6pm where the lovely and very talented Lynnda Wornsop will be showing you lots of inspiration with Oak House Studio products.  So set your Sky+ to record so you don’t miss a single idea.

Onto tonight’s project – simple and easy to do.

What I Did
  1. Fold a piece of A4 card in half to make an A5 card blank.
  2. Cut a piece of ivory card 5 3/4” x 8 1/8”.  Glue to front of card.
  3. Cut a piece of ivory card to required length of scene you would like to create.
  4. Next take the Triple Autumn Pigment ink pad and an Ink Duster Brush. 
  5. Punch a paper circle out and spray the back lightly with repositionable glue and stick down where you want it to be.
  6. Using sweeping motions along the length of the card piece colour the background.  I started with the yellow first blending it down to nothing at bottom. Then I used the orange blending mostly at the top of the piece gradually lightly blending into the yellow.  Next I coloured the bottom with the green.
  7. Lastly add a light dusting of the burgundy ink just at the top.
  8. Take off circle and very lightly sweep the brush (no need to add any further ink to the brush) across the white circle area to tone it down a little.
  9. Take a black ink pad and stamp the tree design.
  10. Mat and layer your stamped piece onto black card then, green, orange and finish with black.  Colour a scrap of card to match project and mat and layer as above.
  11. Glue the main image panel to the top left-hand of the base card and add the greeting panel.
  12. Enjoy!

I managed to catch some of Lynda's show today on Hochanda and it was awesome! Fabulous non stop inspiration: you have fired my imagination and I want to play more with my inks and stamps - thank you for that xx

Sharon Noble said...

Such a beautiful card. I really love seeing your inspiring makes and as a stamper I know I need to play more, This year as been a challenging year what with my own ill health becoming bad and then in August having to say bye to my beautiful border collie who was only 7 years and eight months. Kevin is being made redundant in December and we have to be grateful that although he has a pay cut of just over ten thousand pound a year he has a job staring in January. The icing on top of the tree is that we are now mummy and daddy to a sweet blue merle collie and if you follow my Facebook wall you should have met her by now. Life throws curve balls but I believe if you keep strong you'll win through adversity and we must remember there's a lot worse off so I feel very blessed. Thanks for all your hard work your friendship and your beautiful stamps xxx merry Christmas and let's hope 2016 sees some peace in the world and lots of dreams coming true xxxx
