Bringing Home the Tree
Topic: Stamping

Time to make art for the County Fair!

We'll start with the assignment for a Christmas card with rubber stamping.

I began the process by inking a pine tree stamp with Distress Markers and stamping it on white cardstock. I masked the tree and inked an old-fashioned car with black Distress Marker and stamped that. I added brown Distress marker to color the car.

I masked the car and tore some post-it paper. This was used to mask a line below the car and blue Distress ink was brushed upward to create a snow bank. The torn paper was moved higher and blue inked again. Then a layer of brown was inked under the car followed by two higher snow banks.

At last, I moved the mask higher and stamped bare trees.

I removed all the masks and then used foam with Blue Distress ink to color the sky. I used a Distress Marker to sketch in a shadow underneath the car to ground it.

I stamped the greeting in the lower corner with black archival ink.

Stickles glitter was used sparingly across the tops of the snow banks and then dotted in the bare trees.


I used a brown bordering paper and then mounted it all on a green card base.
