Sparkle Trees

A big congrats to Candee, the newest Featured Stamper (FS504) on Splitcoast! She has such a big, beautiful gallery! I kept coming back to THIS card so that’s the one I picked to case. I liked the little triangle trees & sparkle so I kept that, but I used different dies, different papers & a slightly different layout.
I’ve had this cute little die/embossing folder combo for a long time & thought it would be fun to use w/ some different scraps of glitter paper, metallic paper & some purple paper that was misted w/ shimmer spritz. So I die cut all the little trees, circles & rings and put it all together using some scraps of long strips & a piece of of a water color paper bg. The w/c bg was done using Distress inks & a craft sheet a la Wrinkle Free Distress technique.sparkle-joy-xcu-08044
The only thing I had a problem with was finding an ink that would stick to the silver metallic card stock circle for the greeting. After experimenting w/ some different inks, I found that Ancient Page did the best but I also heat set it just to be safe. In the open circles on the trees I also added a little stickles to continue the sparkly theme.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. A true beauty. Love how you embossed the trees and have your sentiment in the circles. Nicely laid out.
