christmas tree ..

stamps: set 20 by paper artsy, JOFY and dictionary by stampin up!
inks: memento (tuxedo black), tim holtz distress ink pads, sakura micron pen, sakura glitter pen and stickles
cardstock: DL card blank and craftwork cards digi cardstock

I stamped the tree image onto the cardstock. I then coloured it using promarkers, leaving the main area of the tree. I then stamped the tree again on another piece of card and inked it with tim holtz distress. I then stamped the text block in green to add some interest to the tree. I then cut this out and layered it onto the card. I used a red distress ink to colour the card blank and stuck the pieces down. I stamped a sentiment, then added a decorative border using the sakura micron pen in a freehand stitch design. I also used the glitter pen to sparkle the star, and the stickles to create coloured baubles. I think this makes an interesting design, and can be done in stages to create a batch of the cards in preparation for Christmas.

stamps: snow much fun and teeny tiny sentiments from stampin up!
inks: memento ink pad (tuxedo black), tim holtz distress ink pads, promarkers and sakura micron pen
punches: modern label and word window from stampin up!
cardstock: 5x5 card blank and craftwork cards digi cardstock

sorry i haven't posted for a while... having building work done at home so i have no internet or craft room!! i have managed to make a card to share with you though. i kept the design simple, with these 2 stampin up! images as the focal point. i coloured the image with promarkers. i added a message punched out and layered it onto another punched shape inked in red. the card blank was inked with another tim holtz distress pad, and the topper matted on. i finished the card with a border drawn with sakura micron pen.
