Oh Tannenbaum, Oh Tannenbaum

The current Simon Says Stamp challenge simply requires that you use a rubber or clear stamp.  I don't use digis, so easy for me to enter.  I know it's time to make Fall cards, but I really wanted to ink up my new Penny Black tannenbaum, 40-262. This stamp would work for a more whimsy sort of card using different colors, but I ended up with my favorite style which is more toward elegant.  Penny Black Music Background, 2025M, was stamped in Memento Toffee Crunch on white cardstock cut with Spellbinders Labels 17.  The tree is clear embossed & then Distress Inks bundled sage & iced spruce were sponged over the entire piece & the Toffee Crunch was inked on the edges.  The die cut mat was stamped with Penny Black diamond pattern, 40-169, in Toffee Crunch, embossed & the edges were inked. I used a COPIC marker to color my white sequins, added Stickles & ribbon and popped up the panel.
Sun is out so gotta work in the roses for awhile.  So glad you stopped by.

  1. What a pretty Christmas tree, Greta! I love that little bit of ribbon at the trunk and the sequins!

  2. OUTSTANDING Greta! Love the pretty tree image and the way you've framed it!

  3. Pretty, festive, lovely! Yes, it's still 'fall' cards inspiration for me, too, although with Canadian Thanksgiving already this weekend, the time frame is limited. Maybe I'll *celebrate* American Thanksgiving, too...I'm 'this close' to dabbling more with Christmas goodies; your card is giving me that nudge of inspiration...Hugs,

  4. Love the layers, Greta! So pretty with the subtle music background!
