Hello everyone. I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I posted to my blog. My goodness – time flies! I cut down my working days from 5 days to 4 days, and I seem to be even busier. Maybe it’s the time of year, and social occasions going strong.
I have been crafting and making some complicated Sue Wilson-type cards for family and then decided I needed some simpler cards as I seem to be falling way behind in making them.
I also went to the Uniko retreat in Stockton-On-Tees last Saturday. It was a great day, spending at least five hours playing with Uniko stamps, plenty of inking plenty of playing, and plenty of chat and coffee – my ideal day. Thanks Bev. 🙂 🙂
This tree stamp set is one I bought that day. I love the simplicity of the tree, and I find it is quite elegant.
I started by stamping the front tree in a red Altenew ink, masked it and stamped the green trees. I then added the sentiment from another Uniko set, stamping it in black, then heat embossing it with clear embossing powder.
I thought I’d photograph it with the snow in the background. It may not be a lot of snow compared to other places around the world, but it does seem to impact on travel in the UK quite quickly.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Aud sentiments challenge – Christmas and sentiment
Hand stamped sentiments – photo inspiration (trees and colours)
CAS on Sunday – CAS Christmas
Alphabet challenge – ‘T’ for trees
Uniko challenge – Christmas
