It's a good thing this Caardvarks challenge ends tonight, because I have been obsessed with making tree cards lately. Okay, I am pretty much obsessed with trees...or leaves...or nature - anything of the sort. But this challenge has made me go card making crazy!
I created my own set of stamps for this...the sign, the bird, the tree, the clouds...I wanted to do something quilt-y/patchwork-y - so I drew some up and made them into digital stamps and then printed them out onto my patterned paper. Then I paper pieced them together.
The papers are from Autumn Leaves - I think the pack is called Thrift Store...something like that. And of course I used some Tim Holtz Distress Inks to distress it a bit. The cardstock (background and popped frame) is from DCWV. I attached some ribbon I got in the Target Dollar Spot awhile back and a cute little clothespin I bought at Michaels - I actually used the clothespins to attach "reserved" cards for a group of seats at our wedding...almost 7 years ago now.
I've got a couple more cards finished and I hope to post them in a couple of days...so check back!
