I've had this idea for ages--this tree idea--and when I read about the Guest Designer Challenge for My Favorite Things, I knew I had to make this project.
I totally love the stamps From My Favorite Things. Their designs are awesome and can be used for so many occasion. I think that once I set the wonderful quality of these stamps aside, it's got to be their versatility that attracts me.
I got the wood from Michaels and determined how long each piece was. Then I painted all the wood pieces with pink paint.
I used a variety of dp's--some Martha Stewart and some others from my stash. It took me a while to determine where each paper would go, but I like the end product. I used two images from My Favorite Things. Those images are from the Pure Innocence line, which is one of my favorite stamp lines.
I used copics to color the images. I added some hearts that I punched out using my cuttlebug. I glued everything together with my glue gun and popped it into this gorgeous white vase. I added some spanish moss and ribbon as an accent.
