Here is my first sample for this sketch! I have to admit, I went a little crazy. I have three card samples and a scrapbook page lined up to show you with this sketch. It’s just such an easy one!


This first sample is again with Tree for all Seasons.

When I made the first card I stamped four images and partially already colored them in.

I thought this image would go well with today’s challenge.

The tree was stamped with Black Stazon on a 2″ square watercolor paper. It was colored in with Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Really Rust and Soft Sky Classic inks and Aqua Painter to match the designer paper.

The watercolor paper was distressed with the cutter kit, paper pierced and layered first on a 2 1/4″ square of Chocolate Chip cardstock, then on a 2 1/2″ square of sponged Wild Wasabi.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock folded in half and layered with a 4″ square of Apple Cider Designer paper. The corners of the designer paper were punched with the ticket corner punch and Faux Stitching was added with All in a Row. Pewter brads were added in each of the corners.

The saying is from Warm words and was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Confetti White cardstock. It was punched out with the small oval punch and sponged first with River Rock, then lightly with Chocolate Chip ink. The oval was layered on a 1″ sponged and paper pierced Wild Wasabi circle and a Chocolate Chip designer label. I added four brads, one in each corner of the designer label to see if I like that or not. Still not sure about that part.
