WPlus9 | How To Stamp Lemon Tree Branches Pattern. Video

Hello, my sweet friends! I adore creating my own custom patterns using stamps so I couldn’t resist creating one using delicious images from the Summer Citrus stamp set from WPlus9. As I was going through various pattern ideas in my head I decided to use a branch stamp from the All Year Cheer set and not only stamp lemons, but create lemon tree branches!

CARD DETAILS

I started working on my card by stamping a sentiment first. I went with the one that reads “When Life Gives You Lemons – Put Them In Your Sweet Tea” from the Southern Sentiment set and stamped it in black ink onto the middle-right part of my white cardstock panel cut to 4 x 5 ¼”. Having the sentiment in place first allowed me to create the pattern around it and avoid having my images overlap.

Next, I stamped 4 branches in Last Leaf ink coming in from the left and right edges of my panel and added leaves using the pineapple crown image from the Summer Citrus set. I stamped the base layer in same Last Leaf and added detail in Appletini.

I am not always a fan of masking, so I stamped, die-cut and popped my images up instead. I used Wild Mango and Pumpkin Spice colors to stamp both small and large lemons, cut the images out and foam mounted them onto my panel. Lastly, I added dotted detail stamped in Appletini ink onto panel to complete the card.

You can use the same idea to create patterns using other fruits, not just lemons. Think oranges, kiwis, grapefruit etc. Have fun stamping!

ADDITIONAL INSPIRATION

P.S. I loved this idea so much I got carried away and stamped another card but using deep blue cardstock this time. Instead of stamping branches onto my background I die-cut them and foam mounted onto the card. I also used a different sentiment and arranged lemons ad branches in a slightly different way.

To add details to the background I used Nuvo drops in Gloss White and added a number of white dots next to my lemons.

    1. Another great card and video tutorial + extra card! The lemon theme is so refreshing and I like the way you designed with it using both a white and darker colored background. Two lovely options. TFS

    1. Great cards and just looking at these lemons it makes my mouth water. I have a lemon tree full of lemons but they have not turned yellow yet. Can’t wait. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I’m always excited when I see that I have an email (subscription) from you. I love this card and the creative way you used the pineapple top for leaves and the branches. Awesome card.
