Watercolor Christmas Tree Card SBTD 9/2017

Welcome back my friends am I glad to have you here and join me for another SBTD Blog Hop. The theme for today’s hop is 'Trees, Branches and or Leaves'  I jumped straight to Christmas trees because I am trying to increase my Christmas stash so I am organized this year.

I am still loving the Watercolor Christmas Stampin' Up! Set - that large script Christmas wishes stamp would have to be my favourite in the set but the 3 random trees are todays 'lets say focus'.

Can you see the shiny text - I do love embossing and this stamp looks perfect embossed - ink your stamp with Versamark then Garden Green, stamp it then sprinkle with clear Emboss powder, heat and voila shiny green text!

Here is a second card that matches the first as I had a load of trees that I cut to 'play' with so wanting to use them I came up with this one.

The small tree squares were stamped and coloured on Shimmer paper then cut out using the Stitched Framelits. The Garden Green square on the Oh Joy card was also 'Winked' with Wink of Stella.

Thanks for popping past I hope you like my cards today - please visit Tanisha's Blog and see what she has been up to with the Color Theory Suite - some great goodies I'm sure!
