My favourite five stamps (or confessions of a treeoholic!)

 Good morning! It is my turn this month to provide some mid month inspiration for Stamping Sensations.
Our challenge is to choose our 5 favourite stamps and make something including some or all of them. It was so hard to choose only five, and already I am thinking of ones I missed out! I had about 8 trees and lots of leaves on my shortlist!
Here is my card...
 I used my ink dusters to create the background with memento inks in dandelion, Rose bud, Danube blue Tuxedo black and Elderberry on plain smooth white card. I used a mountain and valley stencil too, along with a white gell roll pen and a stardust gelly roll pen.
Here are my stamps - I think this is the order I would choose!
Black Forest  Northern Pine Delicate VinesOld Beech Tree Picture Perfect 
All of my favourite stamps are from Inkylicious
I realise there are some sets here, but if I have to choose just one from each set, it would be the biggest Northern Pine, the buzzard from the old beech tree set and the grasses from the picture perfect set!
Thanks for all your lovely comments lately. There are still a couple of weeks to enter our Things with Wings challenge at Stamping Sensations. Thanks for looking!


  1. A stunning scene Sally. I can see why these are you favorite stamps. I have some of them but the others are going on my wish list (just in time for Ally Pally on Saturday).

  2. Great choice of stamps, Sally, though how you managed to narrow it down to five I've no idea! I will struggle to do so! Love the card, fabulous scene, and the white highlights are very effective.x

  3. Simply FANTASTIC Sally. xxxx

  4. What a great card. Love the effects, wish I had the confidence to add white highlights like that I always worry I will muck up what I have done! Super example of ink dusting. Elaine x

  5. A lovely scene you have created, the white highlights are very effective.I love your choice of stamps, I have just ordered the Old Beech Tree myself.

  6. Amazing card Sally and a lovely collection (or forest) of stamps x Susan x

  7. Think you and I are a bit too transparent Sal, we could probably have done each others posts. What I could not do is use my ink duster to such great effect, beautiful card.

  8. How did I know your 5 favourite stamps would be trees by Inkylicious?! Lovely choice.

  9. What a beautiful card Sally, I love the birds in the setting sun. Well done on picking your favourite stamps, there's no way I could have done that :-) xx

  10. Simply gorgeous, Sally! Another work of art that should be framed! I shuddered to think of trying to narrow my favorite stamps down to only five, but I think your choices were perfect!! Hugs, Darnell

  11. I can so understand this - I love tree stamps as well (and real trees as well for that matter).
