Shopping our Stash #206 - Out on a Limb!


As the title suggests, at Shopping our Stash this week we want to see trees! Conveniently I'm currently addicted to them, so this was super easy for me.


Supplies: stamps from PTI; papers from Studio Calico; classic small oval Nesties; Distress inks in Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain

This is one of the few multi-step stamping sets I've been able to use successfully - even clear sets generally confound my ability to line things up just so, and I knowwww there's products to help with that but no, I wanna spend my money on fun stuff :) lol

You gotta see all the lovely trees! Check out the SOS crew:

So you're not getting a MISTI any time soon, huh? Great tree and sentiment!

Awesome job of lining that up, I have one or two of those things you line sets up with and they never work for me. The Fiskers stamp press is great for cling and clear sets. I love your sketch too.

Jessi, this is wonderful! I love the papers used here. The combination is unexpected and adds interest to the design! You focal is perfect. I thought it was all one stamp! Very nicely crafted!

Haha - lining things up is not my forte either. Why do you think I do distressed cards? Because things are meant to be wonky then! :D I love the way you've got the tree going slightly off the edge - it's adds a great design element

Oh, I love this card! Your paper choices are fantastic and I really like the green and brown together.

I can't line up multi-step stamps either... I call it artistic. :D Another classy and CAS dad's day card!

Oh i like the tree!! the color scheme and layout is perfect!! I think it adds character if things not line up exactly!!!!! But that's just my opinion, ha! :)

Great combining your stamps. Very effective work. Tree's Huh? Hmmm
love trees, dream big dreams about doing a canvas with trees as the focal point. Hmm me thinks you have given me a jumping in or off point. Keep smiling and creating.
