This card doesn't use traditional holiday colors but I love how it turned out! I created this card to show a different technique for a recent card class.

I started with a card base of Melon Mambo and added another layer of Melon Mambo that was run through the Stampin' Cut and Emboss Machine using the Whimsical Woodland embossing folder. I took a white ink pad and wiped it across the embossed piece creating this fun pattern for some nice interest on the front of the card.

I cut the circle for the trees and the sentiment piece using the Stylish Shapes dies. The trees are stamped with Garden Green and Mint Macaron ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Trees for Sale stamp set using Versamark ink and then embossed it using white embossing powder.

To finish off this card, I added another of the trees on the inside.

Measurements and Supplies:

8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Melon Mambo Base

5 1/4 x 4 Melon Mambo Layer (embossed)

5 1/4 x 4 Basic White layer for inside

Scraps of Basic White and Mint Macaron for die cutting

I featured this pretty card in a recent card class to demonstrate the baby wipe technique. This technique has been around for a while but it's a great way to get a different look on your cards using one stamp and several ink colors at the same time.

I started with a Cherry Cobbler base and then added a layer of Sahara Sand cardstock that had been embossed with the new Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder. I die cut a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Scalloped Contour dies.

To achieve the colors on the leaves, I took a regular baby wipe and put drops of Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight ink refills on the baby wipe. I placed the stamp onto the inked baby wipe and stamped to get this pretty effect. I stamped the sentiment in the same way. I finished off the front of the card with a simple bow using the Bakers Twine Essential Pack.

Here are the measurements and supplies to create this card.

8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Cherry Cobbler Base

5 1/4 x 4 Sahara Sand Layer (embossed with Leaf Fall folder)

Basic White for die cutting

5 1/4 x 4 Basic White for the inside of the card

I created this card using the Eden's Garden stamp set, found on page 59 of the Annual Catalog, I used one of my favorite Emboss Resist techniques to get this warm and pretty effect on the card.

I stamped the images in Versamark ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. Then I used blending brushes with Orchid Oasis and Old Olive ink to color the images on the card front. When I was finished, I used a dry paper towel to wipe the ink off the embossed part of the card to bring out the beautiful white color for contrast.

I used another one of the sentiments from the stamp set and Orchid Oasis ink to stamp the inside of the card.
