I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries.

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree

Hey There....Me AGAIN! I just couldn't leave my craft room without posting one more card. Regina over at The Cutting Cafe has a new Printable Stamp Set called Christmas All Around and they are SO cute! You really need to check them out...they are AWESOME! I am really going to have fun with these! My husband says "Thanks, Regina...Now I'll NEVER get her out of the craft room"...LOL! Anyway, I was telling my new Blogger friend Sili from Germany (check out her blog...she is fabulous) that I took 4 years of German in school, I don't remember much BUT I do remember "O Tannenbaum" so I thought this was the perfect stamp for my first card with the new set.

















I re colored the O Christmas Tree circle and printed it twice. The first one I cut with a circle Nestibility, the second one, I cut the tree and pop dotted to the 1st layer then layered it on circle/scallop Nestibility that I pierced the inner circle with a paper piercer. The star at the top of the tree was colored with a gold gel pen and added the tiny stars cut from the Cuttlebug Snowflake die to the tree and dotted the center with red gel pen. I added gold flat back pearls around the sentiment. The band was stamped with a Hero Arts stamp then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I added a ribbon bow and called it a day! Now how easy is that?

















I promised my husband this would be it for the day, we're off to pick up the girls to make a day of it with them before they leave. See you next time!
