I've got to make more of these in the future. I gave mine away already : ).
Supplies: Bella Rose DSP, Tangerine Tango & Baja Breeze CS, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Baja Breeze, and Real Red ink (I used Stampin' Write markers along with an ink pad to get the multicolor leaves).

This is another of the cards that I created for an auction at church. I came across this stamp at a local craft store and just HAD to have it. I love that "curly" tree so much! This was my first time experimenting with my Stampin' Write markers. I would LOVE to have all of these someday, but for now I will pick up a few here and there as I go. They are only $3.25 a piece and come in nearly every Stampin' Up color.
For this card, I inked the upper part of my stamp with my Chocolate Chip ink pad. I used a moist q-tip to remove it from the areas I wanted a different color. I used my Real Red and Really Rust markers to color in other areas of the stamp. Then I "huffed" breath on the stamp to make sure all of the ink was good and moist, and stamped.
Paper: Bella Rose DSP, Tangerine Tango CS, Baja Breeze CS, (the orange polka dot strip was something I found in my old craft stash)
Ribbon: Baja Breeze
