Easy Ink Smooshed Tree Featuring Waffle Flower's August Release!

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here and I am so thrilled to be here at Simon Says Stamp sharing a new card video featuring a brand new stamp set from Waffle Flower Crafts’ August Release. In today’s video, I combine the new Adventures Stamp Set with ink smooshing to create an easy yet beautiful summer tree!

I love the new Adventures Stamp Set! It is so fun to design with because it provides the perfect canvas on which to play with a plethora of fun techniques for creating leaves or landscapes.

First, I stamped a sentiment from the Adventures Stamp Set onto an A2 panel of watercolor paper in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. I then created a mask for the sentiment, placed it over the sentiment and stamped the tree image from the Adventures stamp set onto the panel. I then stamped the tree image again onto another A2 panel of watercolor paper.

Next, I extended the tree on the first panel and the first boy’s hand and foot on the second panel with a sharpie. I then ink smooshed with Distress Inks (Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough, & Lucky Clover) and a small piece of acetate on the first panel to create the look of leaves. I then used a variety of Distress Inks to watercolor the tree trunk and branches on the first panel and the boys on the second.

Once the boys had dried, I fussy cut them out and then added foam tape to the back. I then adhered the ink smooshed panel to an A2 top-folding card base with liquid glue, then removed the backing on the foam tape and added the boys.

I hope you enjoyed my card and video! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. This is so cute–it reminds me of my best friend that I just saw for the first time since I was about 12 years old. Nice..

  2. I really love the look of the boys popped up from the tree, it adds so much interest to the layout. The leaves turned out awesome as well. Great card!

  3. This is an amazing card. Just gorgeous. I really liked the video to watch the techniques. The tree is fantastic.

    I also loved seeing the positioner acetate being use. I’d forgotten how to use it and I’ve been struggling with a few cards recently, how to “see” the card before I actually stamp or place the paper in my misti yet not risk accidentally messing up my card. Hard to explain but that is exactly what I need to do!

  4. Pretty card! I really like this illustration! I’m always looking for new products that are suited for boys! Thanks for your tutorial!

  5. I love what the ink smooshing did for the tree. The loose, dappled look is absolutely gorgeous. And popping up the boys on the tree gives such life to the scene. Thanks for sharing this fabulous idea!
