SIP #82 Natural Elements Challenge

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  Hope you've had a good weekend and that your week is starting off great!   If you were off Monday for Martin Luther King day, congrats!  I wish I had been!  Today I'm back over at Stamp, Ink, Paper with my card for a Natural Elements Challenge!

For my natural elements on my card I used cork for the die cut trees and hemp thread.

I started with an A2 Stampin' Up! Dapper Denim Card Base.  I used a punched our circle to mask my sun and some other post it notes to mask off the hill.  I used On the top portion, I used Soft Sky, and Marina Mist to sponge the sky around the sun.  For the hill I masked off the sky and used Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Hello Honey Inks (all Stampin' Up!).  All of the sponging was done on a 5" x 3 3/4" piece of  Stampin' Up! Whisper White Cardstock.  I used the Gina Marie Tree Frame Die for my trees cut from cork.  I cut off the frame portion off since I wanted to mount it on a smaller panel.  Let me tell you that punching out the portions of the die cut in cork was very tricky.  I love how the trees look but I would not want to cut this one out again.  At least the cork was adhesive backed.  I bought it in a 6x6 pack at Michaels.  I used a retired Craft Spot Tag Set for my sentiment and cut it with the coordinating tag dies. I ran some Tim Holtz Hemp Cording around the panel and tied it through a wooden button and attached the tag under the right side of the button.   The cardinals that I added are the Poppy Stamps Cheery Cardinals die. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
