Twofer Card Challenge--Trees

Hello!  I'm joining in the Twofer Card Challenge #6--Trees!

Several years ago, I was at this charming stamp shop in Salado, Texas called Stamp Salado.  I bought  two lovely wood mounted rubber stamps, one a tree (no leaves) and the other, leaves.  These stamps were designed by Deadbeat Designs.  These stamps have been sadly neglected!  

I used both stamps in two different ways.  The first is with my Marvy LePlume II markers.  I swiped the markers onto the stamp, then softened the stamped image with water and a brush.  I stamped the leaves in three different green shades of Marvy markers and again, softened the leaves.  The sentiment is from Ellen Hutson's Lovely set and stamped in Distress Oxide Vintage Photo.

The second card is my first Christmas card for the upcoming season!  Yay!  Just heat embossing here!  I used two Sparkle N Sprinkle embossing powders:  Shimmer and Winter White.  The snowflakes, and sentiment (embossed in Ranger silver powder), are from Concord and 9th's Oh Christmas Tree set.

Thank you for stopping by!  Carol 


  1. Your execution is always so well done, Carol! I love how you stamped and softened the leaves and how crisp your sentiment is! And your silver-embossed winter scene is sensational! Thank you so much for joining in Twofer Card Challenge #6!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. I love both of your cards, they are absolutely gorgeous! xxx
