World of Crafters Sept. challenge is also “trees”, so I will be posting this card to both challenges. Here is my card, you can click on it to make it larger:

All of my supplies are Stampin’ Up!, except for the little leaf gem.  I stamped my image with Stazon Ink, and then sponged on my colors.  I used Old Olive, More Mustard, Cajun Craze.  I used the same color Stampin’ Up! cardstock.  The string is SU Bakers Twine-Early Espresso & White.

Two new challenges

Ok, it’s been a few days and I have been busy with my grandson, and working on one card for two different challenges.

The first is the Saturday Sketch Challenge 238 over at Stamping 411.  The second challenge is over at The Paper Players Color Challenge #78.  I’m not sure yet how to upload their images for the challenges, so head over there and check it out for yourself.  You will also be able to see what others have submitted:)

Wow, I didn’t think it would be THAT big. lol  I wanted you to be able to see the flowers and leaves.  I used a Hostess stamp set from the big catalog, Simply Soft.  It has a two-step stamp.  First I inked the leaves with my Pear Pizzazz marker, the I outlined the stamp with Blushing Bride marker, finally I added the Calypso Coral for the stamens.   I then “huffed” on the entire stamp and put it to paper.  I then stamped the matching stamp, which is the flower centers with Blushing Bride.  Finally, I used my Aqua Painter brush to fill in the leaves and stems a little.  I used the brush with my markers and gently brushed.

After all that, the rest of the card was a cinch;)

All items used are Stampin’ Up!

Stamps-Hostess, Simply Soft

Cardstock, Markers- Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz

Misc- Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon 1/8
