Christmas Trees

Here's a few cards for an upcoming Christmas Stamp a Stack. They are simple in design - which is great for mass producing! I've left off sentiments, so that each person can add whatever greeting they would like to since everyone has different needs and tastes for their Christmas cards.

On the green card, I colored Gina's tree with Copic Markers & glued some buttons for ornaments. Using one of my yellow Copic Markers, I dyed my white ribbon to match - I love doing that! The red pot has a coating of clear crystal lacquer on it to add some subtle shine.

For the purple card, I used Koh-i-noor pencils & OMS to add soft shading to the Christmas tree. After I stamped the ornaments, I colored the middle stripe with Sakura Glitter pens and then went over everything with Colored Crystal Lacquer. The edges were scored at 1/2" on each side and then sanded to accent.

Cards Details: Spirit of Christmas (GKD); Cardstock: SU & DCWV dsp; Inks: SU choc chip; Marvy giga punch; scor pal; Dollar store gems; buttons, Crystal Lacquer; Copic Markers; Koh-i-noor pencils. blending stumps & OMS; SU corner rounder; ribbons; paper piercer

I almost had heat stroke taking these photos outside today. LOL! It's so hot and humid today - a perfect day to stay inside and do some stamping. Hopefully later I'll get a chance to do just that...

Have a great day!

Great cards!! I like the little tree, so cute. this reminds though that I need to get started on my Christmas cards. My plan was to get them mostly done during the summer, sad to say I have not made one yet. Thank you for posting them as it may just get me going on making them.
