Sneak Peek: Trees with trimmings, day three & FS 188

This week's featured stamper is Terri, aka, Die Cut Diva! She has some fun cards to check out in her gallery, and I decided to case {Happy Birthday CAS style}. I changed the colors, theme and stamp set. I moved the sentiment to a tag too.

I haven't used enchanted evening in a long time, so I thought it would be nice to use it on tonight's card, keeping it clean and simple. I used a white base, then took a piece of enchanted evening cardstock and ran the bottom portion through a crimper. I stamped random snowflakes on the main image with enchanted evening and fresh snow ink. I alsi stamped some snowflakes on some PTI white ribbon with the enchanted evening ink. I stamped the tree on white cardstock and trimmed it out, then adhered it onto the enchanted evening piece with dimensionals. The punched tag was stamped with the sentiment and three mini snowflakes, then tied to the ribbon with rustic thread. Finally, I used some stickles on the tree to give it a little bling and a little gel pen on the tiny snowflakes on the tag.

See what Heather Nichols has going on using both of her new sets.

I love your trees! Today was my favorite one! My eye also caught that ribbon right away - I was going to ask you where you got it, but read that you stamped it. NICE!
