RemARKable Blog Tour - September

I'm thrilled to be a part of the RemARKables Blog Hop this fall! We are focusing on Bundles in the new Holiday Catalog. I picked my favorite - the Among the Branches Stamp Set.I've made five different cards from this set - so far - and now I dream about birch trees! We had birch trees in my yard growing up. I remember that my mom used to put birch branches in our fireplace. Once I lit a fire and burnt them. BOY was she mad! I didn't know they were just for show!

My card to share is this "Spooky" one:

Here's the bundle, #140872:


First I used a Brayer to ink Basic Gray Archival ink onto the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I did not apply the ink evenly, I hoped to achieve a misty look to the background.  It turned out darker in the middle and lighter toward the edges. 

I wanted the trees to stay light, so I went back and used a Q-tip and cleaned up any smudges with Stampin' Mist Stamp Cleaner. Then I pressed it onto Very Vanilla paper in my Big Shot. I found that Whisper White was too bright for this card.

 The following picture shows the paper and 2" circle "Spooky" from the coordinating Among the Branches stamp set. I adhered the Spooky with dimensionals.The spider web is so easy to stick on with the new fine tip glue pen.
Then I just stamped a black raven and a couple of sets of eyes in the forest. And one more look at the finished card:
