This is one of the cards we made at our monthly Club Meeting in February. It uses one of my favorite stamp sets from the 2015 Occasion Catalog called Sheltering Tree. It is a Photopolymer Stamp Set which makes it very easy to line up two step stamps such as the little flowers in this card. Photopolymer stamps are clear so once you ink them you can see exactly where to stamp them. The sun in this card is from the stamp set called Kinda Eclectic. We used a marker to color it because the rays on this stamp are really long. We used the “thumping” technique on the leaves of the tree. This is where you ink the stamp up (we used Pear Pizzazz) and then you take a marker (Garden Green) and tap it lightly all over the stamp. This is how you get some of the leaves to be a darker color
