Stamp Of The Week – Natures Treasures II
This week I have decided to dust off Natures Treasures II as this weeks SOTW…
This set was and still is one of my favourite and definitely a ‘go to’ set when I need some leaves. It pairs wonderfully with loads of Uniko clear stamp sets, but also works well on it’s own too.
My first card today uses the largest solid leaf design, stamped in a rainbow of colours…
This was super simple to do. I started by stamping the green leaves first in the top right corner to determine how far I wanted the leaves to come in to create a curve type stamped border. I then worked down to turquoise and purple and then across the top yellow to pink.
To finish the design off I coloured over the leaves with my Wink Of Stella and added a sentiment from Simply Said Birthday.
My next card today follows the same design, but this time I used a variety of shades of green and I used the more linear design of the largest leaves in the set…
After following the same stamping process and using a little bit of a masking technique to fill in some gaps using just part of the stamp. I went in and added some detail to the larger leaves using the smallest leaf stamp from Flower Power #6.
When I design clear stamp sets, I often look at previously released ones to see if there are possibilities for enhancing and getting more out of them by coordinating designs. The leaves in Flower Power #6 is just one example of this…
Again to finish the card off I added some Wink Of Stella to the non detail leaves and again my favourite sentiment from Simply Said Birthday.
Ok, that’s all from me today, I will be back tomorrow with more to share using this set. Don’t forget that the set is discounted HERE for this week only.
Until tomorrow, thanks for stopping by 🙂
