When I saw the Whimsical Tree and Pumpkin Swirl stamps in So Suzy Stamps November release, I just could not resist making a card with both of them. I heat embossed the Pumpkin Swirl first on a piece of 5.25 in by 4 in black card stock in Stampin Up’s yellow embossing powder. I masked off the bottom of the trunk from the Whimsical Tree and then heat embossed that in Ranger Antique Gold embossing powder. To add some wow, I used my colored pencils and colored in the pumpkin and outlined some of the swirls. Was not too sure about what sentiment I wanted on this card and remembered that I had a die from Simon Says Stamp that I never used and really wanted to for a long time. I purchased the Prayers Stamp set with matching die a few months back and finally used them. The sentiment is from that stamp set and I die cut the Prayers from orange card stock. I layered this on card stock from Stampin Up in Pumpkin (I think that was the name of the color). The die cut was not standing out as much as I would have liked so I applied Wink of Stella n clear and then some Glossy Accents was applied to give it a little lift. A simple card with a simple thought to let someone know you are thinking of them…….
I stamped the inside with So Suzy Stamps sentiment to know that with nurture and prayer one can truly be as strong as an oak tree…. You just gotta have faith…….
