Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with my first project of the month for A2Z.
I have to say I had fun with this project. This is the first “layering” set that I have actually enjoyed using, and do see myself using it more. I have had it in my stash for a while (at least a year) and this is the first time I used it.
For this project I used the Layering Topiary stamp set, and Memento Inks. to start off I used the heart shaped die that comes with the set and a panel of cardstock that was cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″ in the spot where I wanted the leaves of the tree. I then lined that panel up in my mini stamp positioner and lined up the first stamp in the heart cut out. I then replaced the panel with the one I was actually going to stamp on, and followed this process for all 3 colors of green… Cottage Ivy, Pear Tart and Bamboo Leaves. I then used Rich Cocoa to stamp the tree trunk, Potters Clay for the pot, Lady Bug for the bird and Tuxedo Black for the sentiment.
I then proceeded to cut 1/8″ from all 4 sides of my panel and mounted it on a A2 card base.
