Craft Stamper November Challenge ~ Take a Stamp


Hello Friends

Welcome to the new November Craft Stamper challenge.  This month our theme is Take a Stamp. So as long as you use a stamp on your project anything goes. This is what I came up with for this challenge. I am hanging on to the Autumn theme as long as I can. Even though the trees around me are becoming pretty bare and winter is approaching. I made this card with this lovely Tree Poem stamp from Stampendous. I fell in love with this stamp as soon as I saw it. I love trees and I have a huge one in my back yard.

  I used my Brusho  paints to colour this tree.  I really love the way that they blend so well together.  I also used some patterned vellum and a real dried leaf and layered them all together.  I went around the edge of my card with some distress ink and then finished it off with some twine.

 We have another great prize up for grabs this month from our lovely sponsor Magenta.

The hearts are from the  You are my Main Squeeze stamp set. The sentiment is from the Strength & Dignity KOM 11/13 .  The vibrant pink colour is Picked Raspberry distress ink that I sponged all over the card. I embossed the hearts with white embossing powder.

Then I went around the edges with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink.  Next I took my leaves and my paper punches and punched a heart shape out from the yellow leaf and then stuck it to my card with fabric glue.  Then I punched some hearts from the red leaves and put one inside t
