I used the Stamparatus to make the two-colored palm trees. First, I inked up the stamp with Shaded Spruce Ink. I used a baby wipe to wipe off the tree trunks and stamped just the palm fronds onto a 2-3/4" by 3-1/2" Whisper White rectangle. Then, I cleaned the stamp and inked it in Sahara Sand Ink. I used a baby wipe to wipe the Shaded Spruce Ink off the palm fronds. Since the Stamparatus makes it easy to stamp the same image over and over, this two-color image was a breeze to make!
Next, I embossed a 4" by 5-1/4" Balmy Blue Card Stock mat with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder (retiring). I adhered the stamped rectangle directly onto this. Then I wrapped a length of Magnolia Lane Linen Ribbon (retiring) around everything before adhering it to a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base.
I stamped a sentiment from the "Country Home" stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch (retiring). I cut a circle from Shaded Spruce Card Stock with the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies. I adhered the stamped label to the circle and then used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment piece to the card.
