Festival of Trees Club Kit - Part 2

Hi Stamping Friends!!

Today is Part 2 of the Festival of Trees Club card kit instructions. There were so many amazing ideas out on the web using this stamp set it was difficult to choose which ones to create for the kit. I also wasn't prepared to have 14 people join the club so I had to work around what supplies I had on hand. I was pleased with how everything came out and I hope my customers are too!!



OLD OLIVE CARD #1


Supplies:
Whisper White card base
Old Olive card stock layer
Whisper White card stock layer embossed with Large Polka Dot EF
Designer Series Paper 2 1/2 inch Circle (DSP patterns may vary)
Silver Glimmer 1 3/4 inch Circle
Real Red Modern Label piece
Whisper White card stock for stamping
Red Taffeta Ribbon (retired)
Rhinestone Jewels
Festival of Trees stamp set
Tree Punch
Old Olive ink
Real Red ink
Word Window punch (not shown)

Adhere Old Olive layer on to Whisper White card base. Attach Whisper White embossed layer on to Old Olive card stock. Glue Silver Glimmer circle on to DSP circle. Attach larger circle on to Whisper White layer using Stampin' Dimensionals. Stamp tree using any red ink you have. Punch out with tree punch. Adhere using Dimensionals. Stamp portion of sentiment and punch out. Adhere to Real Red Modern Label piece and attach to card using Dimensionals. Add rhinestones to tree. They have adhesive on the back. Just be careful when you lift them off the sheet. Tie taffeta ribbon to card.

**TIPS ON STAMPING A PARTIAL SENTIMENT**
When stamping only part of a sentiment, it is best to use markers. Color only the words you want to stamp and then "huff" (kind of like a small cough) on the stamp to add some moisture back to the ink. Make sure your stamp is completely clean before you attempt this technique or you might get some old ink where you don't want it. When stamping with markers on photopolymer stamps (like the Festival of Trees set) you need to be careful when you lift the stamp off the paper. Photopolymer stamps are extra sticky. That's what makes them stick to the clear blocks so well. But that extra stickiness also sticks to card stock, unless the stamp is covered in ink. When partial stamping, some of the words will not have ink on them, so they may stick to your paper. I found that the best way to avoid torn paper is to kind of "roll" the stamp off the paper instead of lifting it straight up. Practice a few times on some extra card stock to get the feel of it.
