Merriest moments, Very Versailles

Trees postcard

This month at the postcard art swap the theme was one I chose … trees!

I decided to play with my new goodies… Merriest Moments and created a frame for the main tree image which was from the In the Pines set.

I am loving the Merriest Moment bundle with the fabulous embossing folder and coordinating dies. It adds so much texture and interest and although clearly this has a bit of a Christmas vibe it isn’t just Christmassy.

I added in a bit of a Vintage element with some Very Versailles stamping and added ink blending and some water drops to change up the green background a little.

I also blended the panel with the trees so give it a misty look and added sentiment stickers from Tim Holtz to finish off.

Really happy with this! Looking forward to plenty more playing with this bundle.

Happy crafting!

New Christmas goodies

A quick play with new Christmas goodies from Stampin Up… the fabulous Merriest Moments bundle. Created this card on my first play.

Went for a slightly unusual colour combo… Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Just Jade… but think it works nicely.

It was just a little play using scraps from the scraps box.

Love the texture from the embossing folder and the die cut panel. Also those flowers and leaves are fabulous.

Looking forward to playing more with this.

Happy crafting!
