Introducing Through the Trees

By January 10, 2010General

I am so excited to introduce today's set…it is something that I myself have wanted a long time in my own collection and I am looking forward to exploring its capabilities over the next few months. 

Through the Trees is a collection of three large-scale tree images.  Each of them was created in a very clean & simple style to allow you, the stamper, to add your own personal touches & techniques to make them your own.  The large scale makes it easy to complete a card front with little embellishment.  The companion sentiments are heartfelt and something you will enjoy using in conjunction with the tree images along with other images in your collection.

The details.

  • Through the Trees will be available for purchase on January 15th.
  • It will retail for $24.
  • Through the Trees contains a total of 14 stamps (three tree images broken into 4 stamps, 3 companion images and 7 sentiments)

Are you ready to dive into the world of possibilities that this set holds?  Let's begin!

Cardinals & Birches card 
This first project is something I envisioned in my head when I designed this set.  The rustic look of the white ink on kraft cardstock.  The pop of red used in the birds and the ribbon.  The small, subtle sentiment.  And I am so thrilled that the execution turned out better than I imagined.  (I just love it when things work out like that.)  The card base is made from Rustic White cardstock.  I added a mat layer of the same cardstock, lightly inked with Chamomile Tea Dye ink.  I love the soft frame it provided.

Stamping birches 

This image is what I have come to call "the birches", stamped here in Fresh Snow ink.  If you look closely, there are small strokes that appear to be *carved* from the sturdy trunks.  I was trying to imitate the look of wood-block printing that was popular so long ago.  I love images that are in a block like this because they allow you to stamp, trim and go with a perfectly filled, balanced focal point.
Stamping red bird 
The small birds are two separate images that you can place any way you like within the trees in whatever color you desire. 

Cardinals & ribbon closeup 
I trimmed the block out and adhered it to my card cover on top of some layered Pure Poppy Twill.  The twill helps to reinforce the rule of threes that I like to follow. With the two red birds, a third pop of red was needed to make everything balanced and cohesive.  Just *so* in love with this project and I hope you are too!

Sunset card 
I love sunsets and the beauty they possess and this card pays tribute to that.  Quite a different look from the first project, isn't it?  This technique may look complicated, but it is really quite simple to execute.

Uncolored tree block 

I stamped the birches in Dark Chocolate ink onto Stamper's Select White cardstock.

Coloring sunset 
Copic markers are the key to this graduated color scheme.  I used three of our Copic Trios, Terracotta Tile, Orange Zest and Summer Sunrise.  Working from darkest at the bottom of the block to lightest at the top, I created stripes for each shade.  I did a few strokes with my Colorless Blender at the very top to help blend in the yellow a bit and make it look more natural.  A few wraps of Rustic Jute Button Twine finish off the project!

Mounted sunset

Snowy Trees Card 
One of my favorite things about growing up in Maine was how beautiful a snowfall could be, especially from the windows of our cozy little house deep in the woods.  I wanted to try to recreate that feeling from my childhood with this card.

Wiping on ink 
I heat embossed the birches with Clear Filigree Embossing Powder onto Ocean Tides cardstock.  I then used a slightly damp paper towel to apply Vintage Cream ink in small circular strokes on top of the image.

Wiping ink from embossed trees 
Using a clean portion of the same slightly damp paper towel, I carefully rubbed off the ink residue that remained on the embossed trees.  Almost like a polishing action.  You can see in the photo above that the trees on the left hand side have been polished up and the ones on the right have not.

White gel pen snow 
To create my snowfall, I added small dots with my favorite white gel pen.  I also used a ruler with the same pen to outline the birches.  This project not only makes a wonderful winter birthday card, but could also work well for a holiday card if paired with a different sentiment.

Peace card ensemble 
This collection of cards features the same design, just utilizing various colors of cardstock.  (From left to right, Scarlet Jewel, Terracotta Tile, Ripe Avocado, Ocean Tides and Spring Moss)

Terracotta Tile Peace card 
These cards feature what I like to call the "tree trio".  To begin, I scored two lines approximately 1/2-inch from the bottom of the card using my Scor-Pal.  The sentiment was stamped next (also from Through the Trees) using True Black ink.  The tree trio was stamped off center, leading off the edge of the page.  Super simple design, only taking me 15 minutes to create all five of these. 

Celebrate every day card 
Here is the same tree trio heat embossed with White Filigree Embossing Powder on Soft Stone cardstock.  I love how subtly the contrast is between the embossing and the cardstock.  The 5×5 card base is created from Smokey Shadow Cardstock.

White embossed trees closeup 
The sentiment is from Autumn Abundance, stamped in True Black ink.  I wrapped the card front with white crochet thread to add a bit of texture and help ground the tree images.  I think this would be a great masculine card!

Tree & Text card 
I got inspired by Ted Mattos' Guest Star Stamper entry last month and decided to try a card that was sentiment-free.  This large tree image is something I have wanted for a very long time.  Simple, clean & elegant.  

 Text & tree closeup
The tree is actually in two parts, with the leaves being separate from the trunk.  This will allow you to be use two colors, among other techniques.  In this project I opted to stamp both portions in Vintage Cream ink onto Ripe Avocado cardstock.  I used some of the typewriter text from Text Style II to ground the tree and make the overall project a bit more modern.  A few wraps of Rustic Jute Button Twine is the last detail I added.

Celebrate Today Glitter card 

This last card is like a breath of fresh air to me, clean cool and crisp.

Petal power pattern 
I stamped the new Background Basics: Petal Power in Fresh Snow ink onto the Aqua Mist card front.  Don't you just love it!

Celebrate & glitter closeup 
The tree is stamped in Aqua Mist ink for something a bit untraditional.  It's also off center, which I like.  The sentiment is from Cupcake Collection and it is stamped in Smokey Shadow ink.  I used Scor-tape to add glitter above and below the sentiment.  Love how this framed it out.

I am very confident that after seeing today's samples, you will agree that this set is a wonderful basic that you will find dozens upon dozens of uses for.  Is there anything that you've seen today that you find especially inspiring?  What will you do first when you get this set in your own hands?  We would love to hear your thoughts!  Just for sharing a bit with us,we have a fun prize package up for grabs!

    I love everything about the first card, the one with the red birds. I like the tone on tone cardstock layering, with inked edges on the upper layer. The red ribbon really helps the red birds pop too! These features help the simple tree image to have real impact on the card! Well done!

    Where do I begin to describe all the things that inspired me tonight?!! I’m in “love” with the first card with the red birds. I usually buy only the small ink cubes and figured I didn’t need that Pure Poppy ink if it only came in the large size. Wrongo! Worth the splurge for the big pad just to try and make that card for myself. A beautiful and breathtaking card! Love the simplicity of how these trees can be used and yet look much more intricate, and the color schemes tonight are fabulous. What’s not to fall in love with? πŸ™‚

    This set is wonderful!! I have been loving trees lately, and I could make some great cards with this set. I would first make a tree “Hugger” card for a good friend of mine who is so into being green. It would be inspired by a cup selling at the coffee bean. The last tree you highlighted would be perfect! This is a must have set, just gorgeous.

I think the first thing I would do with this set it sit and admire it for about 15 minutes (LOL!) and then I would stamp up a bunch of cards leaving the sentiments off. Then I will have a bunch of great generic cards ready at a moments notice. All I will need to do it stamp a “Happy Birthday,” or “Thank You,” etc. when I need one. I LOVE this set and can’t wait to see more! Thanks for the chance to win! *Ü*

    I love the stamps with multiple parts. This makes so much sense, and allows a more printed, professional look. I also love that elements of each set can be combined with other sets. The first thing I’ll do is try and recreate some of these cards. I always do this first to get my inspiration going.

    Josiane says:

    This set is probably the most beautiful image set in the PTI lineup. I love that the images can result in such sophisticated cards. And 7 cards? That is an embarrassment of riches. Thank you for being so generous with your talent! The ‘birches’ is my favorite.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Taheerah says:

    Wow!! Nichole, you’ve outdone yourself with these cards, seriously!! I love every single one so can’t single out something that’s inspired me the most, though I have to say creating the sunset background with Copics rather than brayering is ingenious!! But I really love it all – never thought I’d ever be so excited about trees but I am!! Hope other sets in this vein follow with different types of trees in the future!! STUNNING!!!

  • 126
    Hilde says:

    Oh my goodness, Nichole! All your projects are beautiful, but my favorite has to be the first one. Those Birches stamped in Fresh Snow on craft and those sweet little red birds nestled in.. I can just picture a lovely set of cards using this set as a perfect gift for my mom who prefers elegant cards that can be used for any occasion. Thanks for designing another must-have!

    Isabel Z says:

    Absolutely stunning cards and so many new looks for me to try at home. I have been eyeing a tree set from another company but have held off buying it waiting to see if PTI would release something similar. In all honesty I prefer the PTI one b/c it’s more elegant, versatile, acrylic so that I can see where I am placing my images, and I love to support PTI my favorite online stamp store. I can’t wait to see which little images I already own that might coordinate with this new set. How about mini hearts nestled in the tree branches for Valentine’s Day?

    Wow! My thought when I saw the tree sneak peek was, “oh what a lovely tree” but I do have another tree set so I really don’t need another one. HA! I should have known how wrong my thinking was. Your images in this set, Nichole, are to die for!! I absolutely love, love, love it! Do you remember the technique which uses glossy cardstock, a brayer and a spectrum ink pad? I think I will have to try it again!!

So, thank you for designing this set for me and them!!

    CKH in Tulsa says:

    I LOVE the technique of clear embossing on color cardstock and then finishing with an application of white ink to add even more dimension. I grew up in upstate New York and Montana (they’re far apart but are both get a lot of snow!) and the stamp looks like the birchwood trees that were in my backyard. This card brings me back to the mornings when snowflakes were quietly floating down to the ground after snowing all night long (a kid’s dream).

  • 432
    Janet M says:

    I love, love, love these trees & sentiments! I grew up going up north & we still do it every summer to enjoy the great outdoors! How fun

    I absolutely love the birches stamp. I can see how it could work in so many different areas. I love how it fills the card on its own. Sometimes it’s nice to have large enough images so you don’t have to add too many other elements, especially if you’re in a hurry. I love the clean, simple look it gives.

But I especially love your card with the birch trees and the sunset. I don’t have any Copics, much less those particular ones, but I wonder if I could achieve the same effect with sponging? Hmmm… that could be fun to try, huh? I’d really love to get my hands on this set. Since most of my family are males (3 boys and 6 grandsons, geeessh) I think these would make great masculine cards!

    Oh dear, this is a must set as each example was more beautiful than the one before. My husband happened to come into the room as I was viewing the first card and he immediately said,”You could make that for me next year for Christmas cards to give my hunting buddies only substitute a flying grouse (Yes, I have a flying grouse stamp!!) for the cardinals”. So looks like I will be getting that set! The trees are all so beautiful and yet elegant. Thank you, I needed this! Can’t wait to order!

    I love the first card with the birch trees and red birds. The little touch of the red birds just makes everything pop. This is a set that will move to the top of my stamp set pile. This will be perfect for those masculine cards that we all have trouble making.

    Sandie Luck says:

    All ideas are “oh, so perfect” for the men and boys in my life, AND friends who enjoy the pure simplicity these tree sets inspire!! With all the snow we are enjoying here in Minnesota the snow scene is appropriate for a winter birthday card!! (((tee hee)))

    Before I even saw Pine’s post, my mind went to sympathy cards, as they are so difficult (just like masculine cards)to create — NOT now that we’ll have Through the Trees at our fingertips! Anxiously awaiting the 15th — we PTI followers are the luckiest girls!!!

  • 559

    I love your first card Nichole the most. The white ink and the red cardinals! Fabulous idea right there! Gorgeous and versatile!

    Kalyna says:

    This is the set of my dreams. For a very long time I’ve been collecting different tree stamps and embossing them with gold or silver powders to make elegant multi-occasion cards. Now, not only do I have more trees to work with, but they are great quality! I am especially excited to work with the birch tree stamp. I have a birch tree in my backyard, so I hope to get some inspiration by looking out my window. It is a yellow birch, so I would probably use Vintage Cream ink over Fresh Snow C:

  • 574

    Marcia Truslow says:

    OH MY GOSH……. There is not a one of your cards I don’t like. I am so in love with this new tree set that my heart is just racing! Since I have to pick a favorite it is a real contest between the “snow birches” and the “red birds on branches”. Methinks my all time favorite and most used set, “Fancy Flourishes”, will have to take a back seat to this very “simply elegant” tree set. I love, Love, LOVE it! Can you tell?

  • 582

As a newbie to card making, your posts never cease to excite me with ideas and techniques. Looking forward to the end of the week…thanks so much!!

    Wow this set is amazing! I think the first thing I am going to do when I get this set is to CASE everything you have done. I love them all. I think ‘the birches’ stamp is particularly clever and can see that done with a night sky behind as well.

    Yesterday I would have said I definitely don’t need another tree set. Today…I definitely DO need another tree set! All the samples are great, but the snowy birches and the sunset birches are especially beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Love, love, love the trees and all your projects! I love how you separated the leaves from the trunk on the large single tree image….I’ve been waiting for someone to do that! My first project with this stamp set will be a birthday card for my dad.

    Kudos to you! I don’t think I’ve EVER seen more beautiful examples of cards made from lovelier stamps. I hope you’ve made a bazillion of these stamp sets, because they’re going to be HOT! I’ve read this post a number of times, and I’m amazed all over again at the beauty you’ve created.

    I especially love the tree trunk stamp. I could see making lots of different cards with this one. The other two tree stamps are very nice also.

    What a beautiful set. This would be great for manly cards, which I have a hard time making. I love the first card with the red birds.

    Wow. I was going to say the 1st card is absolutely stunning, then I scrolled down to the next card. And the next card. And all the way to the end of the post – absolutely gorgeous cards and stamp set. That one is going to sell out in the blink of an eye!

    How beautiful, Nichole! I think this set will be perfect for so many uses, but immediately my mind went to masculine and sympathy cards. I LOVE what you did with your first example.

    Can’t wait to get my hands on this one!

    This is just a wonderful-looking set! I especially like the birch trees and that wood block look and think that is the first stamp of all that I’d have to play with.

    The first thing I will do when I get this set is to eliminate most of my other tree stamps. This year I decided to go with basically a few different stamp lines and I think this will make it easier for me to create. Less is more. I find that I have too many stamps to choose from so I usually end up doing nothing because I can’t decide. PTI is definitely in this group for sure.

    stamp on…
