Stampin'Up!s Trendy Trees

Welcome back! It has been a week since I posted; my apologies. My family has kept me busy with illnesses, minor surgery, and computer problems. I so enjoyed spending some time at my work desk today. This card represent two challenges; Clean & Simple at Splitcoast Stampers and Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

I love fall. I love everything about fall and have some wonderful memories of this season growing up in Virginia. Since I'm unable to enjoy fall living in Florida I'll turn the a/c way down and enjoy my Autumn Traditions Designer Series paper from Stampin'Up! The colors are beautiful and coordinate with Elegant Eggplant, Soft Suede, Ruby Red, More Mustard, and Always Artichoke.

To create the fall trees I used Stampin' Write markers in Ruby Red, Elegant Eggplant, and Always Artichoke and mixed them up on the Trendy Trees stamp. Stamping with markers is easy and the affect was just what I was looking for. If you got my newsletter today, you saw this technique highlighted there. This card is a great example of Stamping with Markers.

If you would like to create your own card using these supplies see the recipe below. Contact me if you need supplies or order them on-line at my Stampin'Up! site.

God Bless,
