Good morning!  I wanted to remind you all again to be sure and sign up for my newsletters so that you will be able to enjoy my specials when I offer them.  

Today I'm posting 2 cards for you.  These two cards I made using my new Leaves of a Tree stamp.   This is an a la carte stamp in the current holiday mini catalog and it sells for $9.95.

I stamped the tree image using chocolate chip ink and then I began to assemble my card.  My old olive border was punched using my scallop border punch and then I decided to try and use up some of my ribbon scraps and I placed two small pieces of ribbon along the left side of my image panel.  I wanted to try and keep my cards more on the flat side so that they would be good for sending through the mail without needing to pay for extra postage.

Stamps: Leaves of a Tree
Card Stock: White, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Spice Cake DSP
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Supplies: Ribbon, Scallop Border Punch

This card was created almost the same as my card above; in fact I made these two cards together with some of the paper scraps I had left over from when I made my lollie wreaths a few weeks ago.  My tree image was stamped using chocolate chip ink and then I simply assembled my card.

Stamps: Leaves of a Tree, Holiday & Wishes
Card Stock: White, More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Spice Cake DSP

I love this DSP! Just got a pack of it myself and it's even more gorgeous than I thought it would be.

I like how both cards are so similar but not quite the same. Two great layouts and color combo.
