More Inspirations for the "Trees" Challenge

This is the beginning of our second week of the "Trees" challenge.  There are so many tree stamps out there.  Let's see what you can create with one.  This challenge is being sponsored by Digi Darla digitals.  They will be giving away some digitals.
This card uses a technique that I haven't used before.  It is Collage Circles.  It really makes a nice background.  The trees, which is a Hero Arts stamp, above have been embossed with Tinsel by PK Glitz.  As a final touch I added a rafia ribbon that I found recently.  I didn't realize that you could get rafia as a ribbon or twine on a roll like ribbon.

I am emtering this in Gingersnap Creations' GC#126 Spicy Supply Challenge Rafia.
I have made another tag for our *trees* theme. I used a TH texture fade folder after spraying the card with different blue tones. I put the green directly into the folder to colour the tree. Then I gave the tree some sparkly frost with ice stickles, added a few stars, and a hungry wild boar looking for something to eat.
This card features a stamp by Stampscapes and is simply done using a distressed ink background and is placed on some Paper Temptress Kraft Brown Paper Bag card stock.  I don't know the origin of the chop stamp.  This forest scene is peaceful and it makes me smile.  The trees near my home were ablaze in yellows, oranges and reds but they are just about to be in winter mode.   Time to cozy up with a cup of tea and do more stamping!


  1. Beautiful festive cards Vicki, the bottom card is stunning. xx

  2. Lovely work, Vicky. I love trees and leaves and you've reminded me of all my precious tree stamps, which I keep so separate that I forget all about them, lol. I have that Stampscapes image, or one very similar - must get them out as soon as I've finished work this week. Love the colours you used and the raffia is a perfect touch x
