(2015 c1) Unity Christmas Trees

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThere’s no time like the 2nd day of the new year to start on next year’s Christmas cards!  I stamped the sentiment with Unity Stamp Co.’s Magic of Christmas  then I sponged with Tim Holtz Distress inks & cut out in the tree shape.    I punched the little star with Fiskars punch.  This time I used Masking Fluid by Windsor Newton found at Michael’s for the background sky snow.  After letting the random dots dry I sponged with  Tim Holtz Distress Inks:  Tumbled Glass, Dusty Concord  & Faded Jeans.   Then just rub away the masking tape & you are left with a snowy sky!

    Lovely cards and I agree. I might start my card stash earlier for the Christmas holidays as I fell way behind and ended up sending out a few purchased type. Yikes! I really felt guilty doing that too!

  6. You are a better person than me. I just need a tiny break before I get going on Christmas again. These are super cute.

  7. Fantastic background and beautiful stamp.

  8. Beautiful, beautiful! I love all of the inking and blending you did on your cards.
