Christmas Tree

Happy Saturday!

It's the last day of my week-off from work - I go back tomorrow. I'm not looking forward to driving there in the snow in the morning - we are suppose to get a winter storm overnight tonight - UGH!

I've been playing with some new goodies that arrived the other day from my Hero Arts November win. I couldn't wait to use their fun, Merry Christmas Tree, Stamp and Die-Cut set! First, I created a fun card. After stamping and cutting out the tree, I added some of the small die-cut images that come with the set, along with some red and green pearls. I added some plaid washi tape and tinsel-twine to ground my tree
 

Next, I used only the die shape, cutting it from green cardstock, to create a couple of tag-cards. Then I added some more of the cute, little stamps that come with the set, to decorate my trees. I know, I know, I went a little nutso this time with the pearls and gems, but I just couldn't stop!




I'm having such fun with this set!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Awesome cards Barb!! I love that tree!! It looks like so much fun to play with!! Congrats on your win and drive safely in the morning. Here we just shut down when is snows because we don't know how to drive in snow & ice!

Love this cute tree set and you have made the most of it with all of your pretty embellishments, Barb!

Take your time getting to work; most people are in a big hurry and that's not good. I have one small request - could you please keep the snow up north, away from the northeast Ohio area?? Well, that's probably a BIG request, but I'm not ready for a full blown snowstorm yet!!!

Oh Barb, what gorgeous tags and card! Love the colours and all the little baubles and gems you've decorated your trees with! The tinsel twine is such a perfect festive touch! I just got that set and can't wait to get busy with it - thanks for the inspiration! Hope the weather improves for you, driving through snow isn't fun at all:(

I was surprised to wake up this morning and NOT find much snow. It will probably arrive early tomorrow morning, just in time for my drive to work. Your card is amazing, and I like that you were able to create tags with the same products!
