Another Simon Says Stamp Tree


Just a quick post tonight before heading to bed. I've been playin' some more with the Layered Trees sets from Simon Says Stamp

This time, I first used the Tiny Flakes cling stamp from Hero Arts, stamping it with different colors of Distress Inks, onto some cardstock. I then stamped the branches of the tree, die-cut them and assembled them onto my panel.

That pretty embossed background piece is actually a piece of resist paper from the Artisan Papers pack by Pink Paislee. Each piece has a "built in" resist design. I added similar colors of Distress Paint to the paper to coordinate with my tree. The sentiment is from Hero Arts' Merry Christmas Trees clear set.

Here's a close-up of the branches.

I've got the day off from work tomorrow - looking forward to some more play time - I certainly won't be going outside - it has gotten very cold! Our high temp today was only 40 degrees and I even saw a few flakes of snow on my way to work this morning - WAY too early!! I was sort of hoping for an Indian Summer - doesn't look like that will be happening - *sigh*

Hope your week has gotten off to a great start! Thank you for dropping by! ♥
