Lovely as a Tree Nature Stamps

Sponging will take you far in your projects, and can really add a lot of wow with minimal effort and supplies.  Here I'm once again relying on one of my all-time favorite nature stamps sets, Lovely as a Tree.

Card Making Instructions:

  1. Using wedges cut from the Stamping Sponges (a different one for each color) apply ink in a circular motion randomly across your Glossy White piece, beginning with the lightest color and moving to darker.
  2. Stamp your images using Jet Black StazOn Ink
  3. Offset your Glossy piece in the upper left corner of your card and adhere with SNAIL, leaving a tiny edge of Night of Navy along the top and left sides, and larger edges along the other side.
  4. Using your piercing tool, pierce mat, and one of the templates from the paper-piercing pack, create holes along the bottom right for your brads, and attach brads.
