Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week - Divi Divi Tree

Another Monday has rolled around, bringing with it another Repeat Impressions Stamp of the Week.  This week's stamp (available at 50% off through next Sunday) is the Divi Divi Tree.  Pretty cool!  Please visit the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, for all the details.  Also, be sure to visit the other Rock Stars' blogs to see what they have created using this stamp:

I inked up the stamp with SU! markers.  I used a blender pen to add a little color to the trunk.  I used the "thumping" technique on the leaves.  (I used an Old Olive marker, then "bounced" two darker color green markers on top of it.)  I stamped again on a piece of scrap cardstock and cut out the leaves.  I cut them into two pieces and mounted them on Dimensionals, but didn't place them right on top - I off-set them to add more depth.  The top piece is SU! Always Artichoke.  I punched the border with an EK Success punch, and scored lines with my Scor-Pal.  The sentiment is from Repeat Impressions, also.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Ohhhhhh, this is a neat idea! I love how you added the leaves in a clump on the tree. It never in a million years would have occurred to me to do that. I really appreciate your ideas!

I love the way that you cut the leaves to the tree and made them look 3 dimensional. I love the colors you used and the embossing up top. :)

I look forward to opening my computer in the morning and finding your next inspirational card. When do you find time to do so many? Your talent is endless.

Great card - gosh, I've forgotten about the thumping technique; I should have used that to combine my colors! :D

Great job!
