Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop Take 3 - Christmas Tree Duo



This is my 3rd and final card for today's blog hop at Papertrey Ink. I used Holiday Colour Recipe #6 again.



I created a mask for this card from transparency the same as I did for card #2 - I just made my triangle a little bigger for this card. Using the mask and one of the stamps from Ombre Builders I stamped the light blue tree onto my card front. I masked this tree with the triangle that I cut out of the transparency and stamped the darker tree off to the left. I was having some trouble with my light blue ink pad, I can't tell you how many attempts I made to create this card, so even though the ink is a little splotchy I couldn't waste any more paper and just went with this one. The star and sentiment are heat embossed with silver and the sequins are dark pink and purple.

Supplies:
Stamps - Ombre Builders, Rustic Wreath (PTI), A Twinkle (CTMH)
Paper - Stampers Select White CS (PTI), transparency film (3M)
Ink - Sky, Pacifica inks (CTMH), Versa Mark, Silver EP
Other - bitty rhinestones, sequins
