Retro colour combo for modern cards: Just Because stamp set

Who says trees have to be green?! I’ve got a fab colour combo today using the new Because Tree stamp set releasing in the Just Because Bundle as part of the Quin-Essential release from Catherine Pooler Designs. This retro colour combo is perfect for modern style cards giving them a quirky fun edge. What’s more, I used an acrylic stamping block to stamp the background, as the inks ensure you get a perfect stamp each time. This speeds up making a custom background like this when you don’t have to keep rearranging it in your MISTI.

Start off by stamping the largest tree you wish to use from the Because Tree stamp set in Sauna Ink. I love the look of this round tree, and it is best to start with your lightest colour first as it will layer better this way.  Stamp this in several places over the background, leaving space for more trees later.

Next, with Sangria ink stamp the next tree of your choice from the Because Tree stamp set allowing this to overlap with the first tree. Repeat this so it is in the same place all over the card panel. Lastly, do the same one more time with another tree using Daydream ink. Trim the panel down and add this to a white card base. 

For the sentiment, use the direct to paper method to colour your white card with one of the inks you’ve stamped the background with. Here I went with Daydream ink. Next, using a sentiment from the Hello Trio word die set, die-cut this out, and also die-cut it from the white card as well. Layer the two sentiments offsetting the white slightly to create a shadow. 

Foam mount the sentiment onto the card and then finish the card with a  few sequins from the Park Avenue sequin mix scattered around the card.
