Trees in Bud

The Stephanie's Secret Sister Swap topic was "Trees in Bud".  So what do you do when the only stamp that fits the topic in your 3000+ stamp collection is 1"x1"?  Well, you stamp second and third generations to stretch that tree out to be a grove. :)  It was my solution to a difficult weekly topic. I used two shades of green Flower Soft on some of the background trees and a clear gel pen was used to go over the originally stamped and colored tree to give it a little dimension.


  1. Great Card Gail and very crafty the way you did your treest. Just love it!!

  2. Great card love the idea of the fading out in the grove.

  3. Ah, see, I knew you'd find something that would work in your "stamp stash" -- great adaptation to the theme, girlfriend! And, as always, I'm jealous of your great bow-tying !!!

  4. That is so cute! I think you did a great job with the one stamp! I love the paper, and wish I could tie a bow like that! How in the world do you do them so neat?
