An Elzybell Christmas Tree


I don't normally do the Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS, only because I'm too chicken to break the rules. This weeks didn't seem too hard to me though. It's titled "Rock, Paper, Scissors", and is hosted by a dear, dear lady...Judy (StampingQueenJAR). Love the title, love the challenge. Click HERE for the rules.

I LOVE Elzybells stamps and rarely get to use them. Well, I ordered some new ones again this year and am determined to use every one. Today, I just inked up the tree with Black Onyx Versafine and stamped it onto Birchtone Medium Prismatic Paper. I highlighted it a bit with my copics and a white gel pen, then cut it out and mounted it onto White Prismatic Paper after sponging Denim Adirondack Dye ink on the bg. I then ink distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap and Brushed Corduroy Ranger Distress Ink. The ornaments have Xmas Red Stickles on them, and the star has some clear ultrafine glitter. The flakes on three of the square panels are from Stampin' Ups Snowflake set. I also added some Bon Bon Sugar Coating Glitter to the snowflake centers, and some piercing with an ornare template on either side of the sentiment panel and along the top. I finished off the card with a few Dew Drops and a gold cord bow.

I hope you all have a blessed weekend!!
Happy Stamping!!
