This weeks' DOstamperSTARS Challenge gave me the opportunity to show you how much fun you can have with this beautiful versatile stamp set and thinlets bundle!

So, let's get started with the fun! Cut two Cherry Cobbler Cardstock 6 1/4 x 4 3/4, one Crushed Curry Cardstock and one Whisper White Cardstock 6 1/2 x 5.  Inks used include Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Wild Wasabi.

Measure three 1 1/2 squares with 3/4 in between and 1/4 on bottom and each sides on Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and on card front.  Repeat on Crushed Curry 6 1/4 x 4 3/4 with 1/8 on bottom and on each side.  Cut out squares on both sides on all, leaving the middle square uncut.

  Layer card front on bottom, Cherry Cobbler in middle, and Crushed Curry Cardstock on top.  Trim inside of windows so no white is showing through.

Emboss Crushed Curry Cardstock with Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Stamp leaves on watercolor paper with Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Wild Wasabi Ink.  Die cut leaves with Thoughtful Branches Thinlets.

Die cut Always Artichoke Cardstock with Thoughtful Branches Thinlets and cut off stems. 

Die cut 3 trees in Soft Suede Cardstock with Thoughtful Branches Thinlets.  Die cut 2 birds in Island Indigo Cardstock.

Now for some watercoloring fun!  Use your Aqua Painter for blending with Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Wild Wasabi, and Crushed Curry on watercolor paper (any size large enough for all your die cutting).  Brush water onto paper before placing the ink.  It provides even blending without lines.

Go crazy with die cutting!  Thoughtful Branches Thinlets are amazingly beautiful.  Just look at the details in these cuts!

Die cut sentiment tags with Layering Ovals Thinlets in Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White Cardstock.  Stamp sentiment with Cherry Cobbler Ink.

Inside stamp flowers with Elegant Plum and Wisteria Wonder, sponge in shading.  Stamp ground with Always Artichoke and grass in Wild Wasabi.

Mat with Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.  Adhere matted sentiment tag, tree top, stamped leaves, die cut leaves.  Adhere with dimensionals blue bird and stamped leaf positioned in windows.

Adhere cut out square to center between windows with dimensionals.  Add tree die cut and stamped tree trunk in Soft Suede with dimensionals to center of square.  Place die cut green leaves behind tree trunk and leaves at base of tree.  Tie Old Olive Baker's Twine over tree trunk.  Adhere tree tops and matted sentiment tags with dimensionals.
