Do you have kids in your life? The Treehouse Adventure stamp set by Stampin' Up! has kids written all over it. For the next 3 days, I'll share a parade of projects made with the Treehouse Adventure stamp set. Starting with this playful Easel Card. It's my salute to a fabulous kids stamp set.
The Treehouse Adventure stamp set is on the 2019 Stampin' Up! Retirement list. Which means that it will only be available for just a little while longer.
This card may look complicated at first glance, but it's really just a series of stamping, cutting and scoring. Not mention, it's really a lot of fun to watch your card come to life. You really don't have to be a master crafter to make this Treehouse Adventure Birthday Card. Let me share a few tips on how to make this Easel Card.
Treehouse Adventure Easel Card Tips
Start by stamping your tree and treehouse. I used Lemon Lime Twist (retiring), Granny Apple Green, Pineapple Punch, Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy, Soft Suede and Basic Gray Inks. Some of my elements were started then fussy cut. And others, such as my tree trunk, tire swing, sign, grass, and sentiment were stamped directly on my card face. Then, I adhered my cut images to build my treehouse.
Hint: To say "Happy Birthday" with different shades of Navy simple stamp multiple times before inking you stamp again. This Technique is called Stamping Off.
To make the easel, simply cut a 4-1/4" x 11" card base. Then, score your card base at 5-1/2" and 2-3/4". Fold to form a triangle. Adhere your card front to the front side of that triangle.
To make everything stamp up, you will need a support piece. On my card, I layered a series of rectangles and popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals. This is the catch to hold your easel in place.
I did swipe the base sentiment (Hope Your Day is Filled with Fun and Lots of Happy Surprises!) from the Postcard Pals stamp set. Sadly, this cute stamp set is also retiring.
Color inspiration for today's Child's Birthday Card came from this week Color Throwdown Challenge of yellow, orange, navy and green.
