MC Aug/13 - Xmas Tree_Merry Xmas

click on image to enlarge, enjoy
I just got this new die from Marianne Designs - it's a big Xmas tree... approx 6" tall.

Side folded a white 5"w x 7"h card.

Stamped the house on the hill (Old Island Rubber Stamps) using Versafine Black Onyx. That stamp is one of the first I bought eons ago. Still love it. Added white puffs on the roof and heat activated. Added Ritz micro fine glitter "Cool Highlights" on the moon.

Die cut the tree from white cardstock and sponged Distress greens/blues, keeping it more on the blue tone. Sponged the same blue in the sky. Applied some Crystal Snow glitter here and there on the tree branches. Then added some white puffs and activated with my heat gun for snow mounds. Adhered to card with 3D foam tape.

Stamped the sentiment (Quietfire Design) with the black and clear embossed. It's one of the newest for Xmas 2013. And inked in a fence. Couldn't find my fence which is as old as the house stamp, bought at the same time...Drew in a couple birds.

 - and then decided I wanted a border... I've been in this mood, needing borders, but not enclosed ones, things popping out of the borders. I've been very restless, it's almost like I want to jump out of my skin. Sigh.

As a final touch added mini rhinestones on the tree.
