Creating Two Different Backgrounds Using Stampin’ Up!’s Tree Angle Stampset

These two card backgrounds were created using the stamps in the Tree Angle Stampset by Stampin’ Up which can be found on page 22 of the new Aug-Dec Mini Catalog. You can make lots of quick backgrounds with these stamps. This stampset coordinates with the Stitched Triangles Dies (pg 179 of the Annual Catalog).

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 3-3/4 x 5″ for the top panel.

I stamped the poinsettia and leaf tree patterns all over the background from the Tree Angle Stampset onto Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock with Stampin’ Up! Real Red and Old Olive Inks and adhered the panel to the card base.

I die cut a 3″ scalloped square from Stampin’ Up!’s 8-1/2″ X 11″ Vellum Cardstock using the Stampin’ Up! Layering Squares Dies and the “Merry Christmas” sentiment from Red Foil using the Word Wishes Dies and adhered them to the card with Tombow Mono Multi Glue. I also cut two strips of the Red Foil, measuring 1/4 x 5″ and 1/16 x 5″ and adhered them to the card panel. I finished it off by adding three adhesive Pearls (retired) on each side.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the Tree Angle Stampset with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink.

For the second card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a card base. Then cut a piece of Stampin’ Up!’s Garden Green 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 4 x 5-1/4″ for the top panel.

I stamped all the tree patterns except the poinsettias from the Tree Angle Stampset onto all over the Garden Green panel with Stampin’ Up! Garden Green Ink, creating a geometric pattern and adhered the panel to the card base.

I stamped three of the trees from the Tree Angle Stampset ontoa piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock with Stampin’ Up! Poppy Parade and Blushing Bride for the trees, and Soft Suede Ink for the tree stumps. I used Versamark Ink and Gold Emboss Powder to stamp and heat emboss the star as well as the sentiment from stampset. I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the red tree and star.

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the Tree Angle Stampset with Stampin’ Up! Poppy Parade Ink and some of the trees with Blushing Bride and Garden Green Inks. And that completes this card.
