The images everyone notices right away in the Nature’s Beauty stamp set are the deer, the fox and the rabbit, but don’t forget the lovely trees in the set! I created this fall landscape card for Dave’s Nature’s Beauty class with the trees in the Nature’s Beauty stamp set.
If you look at the tree images in the stamp set, you’ll notice there are no leaves on the trees. So, how did I get leaves on my trees you ask? I stamped the trees in Early Espresso ink, then using the brush tip end of the Stampin’ Write Markers in Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Mango Melody I “tapped” the leaves on the stamped tree images. I finished off the landscape by coloring the tree trunk with Soft Suede Stampin’ Blend and the grass with Old Olive. For the golden sky, I used Crushed Curry ink with a sponge to rub the color on. Finally I punched it out with the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch before layering it on a Scallop Circle piece of Pumpkin Pie. The pretty printed paper is the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP and I added a bow made from the Crushed Curry Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. The finishing touches are the leaves that I die-cut with the Gathered Leaves Dies.
