Trio of Trees

  I'm continuing to have fun with Holiday catalog items!  As I try out some of the stamps and accessories I'm thinking more and more of Christmas.  I need to start getting some designs figured out to start on my Christmas cards.  I'm determined not to be a last minute stamper this year and to have my cards complete well before Christmas.  We'll see how that works out!  Best laid plans and all....

  I made this card using the Friday Mashup Challenge which is to use this sketch and incorporate the emboss resist technique.

  My emboss resist is minimal and probably doesn't show well in the photo but I embossed the trees with white embossing powder onto white cardstock and then sponged the colors over the top before punch them out.

  I used the Festival of Trees and Endless Wishes stamp sets.  The DSP is from the Watercolor Wonder DSP from the Spring catalog so it's no longer available but the All is Calm DSP in the Holiday catalog is a perfect current pack to use....I just didn't get it....yet!  

  The oval behind the trees is pierced with the oval piercing guides, the star on the tree is the new silver glimmer paper and the Lost Lagoon strip is from the All is Calm Washi tape.

  Have a great Tuesday!  

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?

  1. Very pretty Christmas card using this week's sketch. And I can definitely tell you used the emboss resist technique on your trees. :) Love that you used three different colors on them. Thanks for playing with us at the Friday Mashup this week.

  2. Just spent the weekend making cards for my Product Class with this set...too bad I did not see this one! I would have CASED it for sure. Lovely mashed up card, Amanda! TFS with the Friday Mashup this week:)
