Sneak Peek: Trees with trimmings, day four

Here is a bunch of sneak peek with my latest stamp set, Trees with Trimmings.

For this first card, I used just the snowflake from the set for the "o" in Joy! I stamped it in fresh snow ink, and white it was still wet, doused it with fine glitter. The J and Y are from Outline Alphabet and the "to the world" is from Holiday Button Bits. Main image is spring rain cardstock, dry pressure embossed with the swiss dots folder. The J & Y were colored in with a white gel pen. Main image is mounted on white cardstock, scallop edge punched on the bottom, finished with a PTI gingham ribbon and a blue dew drop in the center of the snowflake.

Here is a quick and easy way to create a last minute holiday gift. These are going to be teacher gifts this year. I created some fun patterned paper with the snowflakes from the Trees with Trimmings set, using white copy paper, spring moss, ripe avocado and scarlet jewel inks. The homemade designer paper is attached to the candle with red line tape. I took a piece of scarlet jewel ribbon, attached it to the paper using more red line tape. Finally, I punched some snowflakes with the extra jumbo and super jumbo snowflake punches.

I used spring moss and ripe avocado cardstock scraps, with a small scarlet jewel button in the center of each snowflake.Finally, I created a quick card with some of the fun trees from the set. I made a nice long card (I never think of making this size)....the base is spring moss and the trees are all stamped in spring moss. The stars are pure poppy (boy is that ink pad getting dry)....and the sentiment is pure poppy. I used some poppy buttons and tied some rustic thread in the buttons!
