Stamper's Dream - Impression Obsession week

Hello everyone and happy TGIF!!!

This is the last day of our Impression Obsession week over on Stamper's Dream!!!

Just in case you missed the whole entire week.....check out my post from the other day right HERE!!!!

Today I have the pleasure of showing off another cute Christmas Stamp and this one is called *Tall Trees*.

I actually made two cards...first up is the more *traditional* version.......




















The card base is Very Vanilla. The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers.

The Real Red CS was embossed with the Cuttlebug folder - Snowflakes. At last I added some Red Gemstones to one of trees and the Cotton Ribbon with the button.

Next, is the *non-traditional* version.........
















I started out with a White card base. The top was scored and the bottom was pierced in two rows.

The tree image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers. At the end I added the Yellow Gemstones and the Pink Ribbon.

Please take the time and stop by - Tosha , Amy and Michelle to see what they have created!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today...and I wish you a wonderful weekend!!!
