Clean and Simple Stamping Using Scraps

Hello again.  Today I am sharing a card and matching envelope I made using scrap white card stock and one of those standard, small $.89 cent box of envelopes we all have lying around.

I started out by taking a long piece of leftover white card stock after printing digital images, folded it in half, and stamped the large oak tree from Tree Greetings in Tim Holtz walnut stain distress ink before coloring it in koh-i-noor pencils and a blender marker.  Then I took the grass stamps from Scenic Selections and stamped it in Tim Holtz forest moss before stamping the birds and a saying in memento tuxedo black and stippling Tim Holtz tumbled glass for the sky.

Now it was time for the envelope.  I took one of the other tree stamps from the Tree Greetings, stamped in walnut stain, and colored with koh-i-noor pencils with a blender marker.  Then I stippled lightly a bit of Tim Holtz forest moss distress ink into the bottom left corner.  Easy, clean and simple stamping that can be done while feeling sick or with a migraine.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.
