Merry Christmas - Creative with Stamps #9

Thursday December 1, 2016
 
 
The theme this month is Christmas Stamps 
I am sure you have been making Christmas cards and using stamps.. so you can enter up to 3 times over at Creative with Stamps
 
 
Make sure you add this banner below showing what the challenge is to your blog when you add your card for our challenge. It's sad to see some haven't added this banner so they are not able to win because of that..
 

This is my card using the Simon Says stamp set. I used some white ink and did spatter on the kraft cardstock. I than stamped the sentiment. I stamped the trees in Ranger ink and cut them out. I stamped the trunk right to the card base and used foam to add the trees to give depth. I used some liquid pearls and added white / silver to the trees. I did not fill each dot but here and there.. I then used Simon Says star die and added them to the top of the trees. I am liking the way it came out.
