Memory Box Christmas Tree - Take 2

Hi Everyone,

another quick post from me - still nee to limit my computer time....

I did a quick water color background, layering on colors.

I die cut the outline pine trees by Memory Box using metallic paper. I inlaid some of the trees with glitter paper and added a strip on the left.The sentiment is by Technique Tuesday, heat embossed in silver. Added some sequins.

A stunning shimmery forest; one I'd like to walk through, to delight in the gorgeous colours and serenity. Your sentiment: beautiful!! I am sooooo glad you're recovering, my dear friend, but...take it slowly in getting back into the crafting groove (I know: easy to say, not to do)! *Doctor's* orders *grin*

You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey.

Mirror Image Stamping with So Suzy and the MISTI

Hi Everyone, I am so happy to be part of this wonderful event - the collaboration between So Suzy and the MISTI from My Sweet Petunia doing mirror image stamping.  This event is going on for the ENTIRE  MONTH! We are demonstrating the  Mirror Image Stamp    which coordinates with the Misti Stamping Tool! All month long, different bloggers will post a card using the  Mirror Image Stamp .  In my tutorial today, I will show you how use the  Mirror Image Stamp  on your cards. You can basically double your stamp supplies that way! The  mirror image stamp  is  a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of red rubber with no foam backing. So much larger than the other mirror image stamps out there and therefore much more useful!
