Forgotten Friday 35

My goodnes don't the weeks just rush by?  We are now on week 35 for Judith's Forgotten Friday challenge and this week I'd been rooting through my stamps for ones with trees for another challenge and realised that this particular tree stamp from the Stampin Up Lovely as a Tree set had never actually been inked - how bad is that?  I also have several other tree stamps which have been neglected so sometime soon. must use them as well.  I stamped the tree first with Versamark and clear embossed, made a moon mask then brushed and sponged Chipped Sapphire Distress ink before finally stamping the tree again (slightly offset) using the same colour.  This panel was them mounted with various bits of matting and layering using background papers from my stash and a punched tag for the words.  I was hoping that this card just might do for another Christmas challenge but sadly their theme this week isn't trees - never mind.


  1. Hi Val, this is a lovely tree stamp, I love tree stamps! I really like the colours that you have chosen to use. Chipped Sapphire is a great colour, and you have achieved a lovely Wintery effect with the clear embossing.
    Thanks for joining in again this week, Judith xx

  4. Super moon behind the trees & just a lovely combination of colours.
    Your offset stamping of the trees is so effective & really makes the whole design so stylish.

  6. A beautiful blue Christmas card Val. I think blue always looks so wintery, just right for Chistmas.
