Tannenbaum Forest – video

Funny story about this card, I realised last night that, although I had written in it, addressed it and even added the stamp to the envelope, I hadn’t taken the photos to go with today’s video tutorial. I pulled it out of the envelope, took some photos, did a little editing magic so you couldn’t see my handwriting on the inside then popped it back in the envelope. It’s mailed now, on its way to Australia.

This is one of two videos I’ve made featuring the tannebaum trio set from Penny Black. I’ll post the other one soon. I did generational stamping in a few colours to get the background trees to appear to be in the distance. It’s a fairly speedy technique which you could mass produce once you got into the swing of things.

As I’ve said before ‘you can never have too many tree stamps’ and the three in this set are no exception. You have already seen me pop them in a few cards on their own to add a foreground tree to a snowy scene or to be a single focal point on one of the mini cards I posted yesterday.

Thank you again for your interest in and support of the Dressember campaign. A couple of close friends I have made through card making helped move my fundraising total along yesterday. Thank you so much!

    What an adorable story.So thoughtful of you to think of us..I am sure your person in Australia will not mind, either.
    I read your site about the human trafficking. What a great thing you are doing. This is one of those happenings that most of us are clueless is even going on..like sweat labor.
    I lived in Tampa Florida for 55 yrs. We had a problem there, too.

    Clever to think of a way to draw attention–the dress. Better than riding a bike 100 miles or so a day.

    Sure hope you all are safe.

    Take care and thank you for your tutorials and the info on human trafficking.

    This is such an atmosperic look with the trees and the bright moon shining through the branches. I love your demo and the background trees appeared to be barely noticeable but the end result shows they were just right when they dried. This is where experience counts and knowing when to stop fiddling with something. I find this difficult and tend to overdo the fiddling with my cards..lol. I adore your winter scenes and this is another beauty. x

    I can’t possibly love this card more! Your creative process makes it seem doable for the average stamper. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Heather, Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful technique! I love the look you have created. The colors make the trees look so realistic. Though I don’t have the Penny Black Tannenbaum Trio, I tried this with stamps in my stash and had such fun! And love how my cards turned out. Thanks again!!! Sincerely, Laura

      Hi Laura, I’m so glad you tried this technique, it is a winter with most tree stamps and changes depending on your colour choices and how much water you spritz!
