Hiding in the Tree


Amusing cards are not generally my forte, but I had seen an image with the tree looking like a person and it made me smile. Not having the right stamp meant I had some thinking to do to see if I could make something using the supplies I do have. This card is a mish mash of stamps from different sets. Two are from the Cats Pajamas, one is from Dylusions, another StampinUp as well as Hero Arts and MayMay Made it. The stars are from some stickers in my stash. Although the card is okay, I can see better ways to do it should I try another one. I stamped the legs first masking off a section as the stamp was quite long and I only needed a portion of it. Then I stamped the face, masked it to stamp the tree around it. Stamped the bow at the top, again using only part of a stamp, after which I fussy cut the entire piece out and added foam to the back. I coloured it using mostly pencils and Sakura gelly roll pens. The little package was done separately and also fussy cut once coloured. It too was popped up on tape. The card front was stamped with the dotted swirls to give a background to the focal image. I added the focal image, stamped the sentiment and fussy cut that before popping it on top. Although the inspiration image at JUG’s is more of a formal look, I decided to add this to the challenge as a fun card with a message that gives it a warm feel as in the photo. My goal this year has been to use as many of my stamps in creative ways as possible. I do believe I’ve achieved that goal with this card. I sure hope it makes you smile.

  1. Oh what a fabulous fun card. Put a smile on my face when I saw her hiding in that tree. Thanks for adding something so different to our gallery. I really like your take on our photo. Certainly thinking outside the box here.
