Stamp Press Pink Trees...

Happy Saturday,

What better to cheer us all up on a Sunday than a row of cherry blossom filled trees?  I have cheated on this card as the cherry blossom appearance is made with a leaves stamp and inks but it does suggest trees in full bloom to me!







I have added the video which shows the basic technique for this card as part of the Press to Impress Facebook Live I filmed yesterday at Inspirations in Preston.  If you click the link HERE it will show you the video.  I will try to add this youtube as soon as possible but its a little tricky! lol

It was a fabulous 2 days and Thank you to everyone who attendee I'm sorry the stock didn't last longer!  I will let everyone know as soon as the Media Plates and Masks are back in stock promise!

I stamped the trees in a row as shown in the attached video.  I then used thermal leaves stamp included in the winter trees set and stamped leaves over the tress in Raspberry, Walnut and Tea Izink die ink pads.


Enjoy...

  2. Lovely card for a Saturday too John! Glad you've had a good time. Hospital appointment yesterday and I had to go on the bus so took all day. I didn't get home til 7pm and absolutely shattered so no crafting and no catch up on your shows. I have the afternoon to myself today so hopefully ...
    Have a great day.
    Happy crafting,
    D xx

  3. Morning John, a beautiful card today, to me a really clean and simple card to make (well it looks it, you just wait until I try to do it ha ha!!) - as soon as the postie arrives with my order I can have a go with your stamps.

    So pleased that you had a great time over the past 2 days in Preston. I am not surprised.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  24. You frighten the life out of me I thought I had slept round the clock lol
    but after checking, yep definitely only Saturday.
    Nevertheless shock excluded and down to cards and this is a very pretty one. I do like that these trees are for all year round (the value for money - that we both agree on) and would never be out of use.

  45. Hi John,
    Watched your shows on rewind, FABULOUS, nice to see a good stamping show. Thanks for the tips. The price of inkpads has become rediculous so really pleased to see the range you brought to Hochanda.
    Congratulations on your new range. Onwards and upwards.
