Good afternoon friends, followers and passers by. This weekend I have been joining in the One Stamp Event over at Oak House Studio. I have been away for three weeks and couldn't wait to get back into my craft room.
One of my One Stamp makes is this tea bag folded Christmas tree tag. The stamp used this weekend is the Thoresby background stamp which comes in various sizes.
The small Thorsby background stamps from the Texture Squares stamp set is an ideal size for teabag folding and gave me the idea to make the Christmas tree. I cut four different sized squares using dies and stamped them with the Thoresby stamps using the Thoresby Positive Square and Triple Meadow Green pigment ink pad . The squares were folded and layered to form the tree.
The tag background was stamped with the Thoresby large background with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Sepia and Green Oak pigment inks were sparingly blended around the edge and over the tag. I then stamped over the tag with Music Background, words from the Deck The Hall stamp set, and the Snowflake Collection using Yummy Chocolate pigment ink. The tag was layered onto Papermilldirect maroon card and a banner stamped with the Sending You Peace & Joy sentiment.
Pop over to the Oak House Studio blog and see more of my samples and some brilliant work from other members of the team.
