Bonjour et Hello

Stamp your sentiment BEFORE embossing your card front

I die cut out 3 size of  leaves from Pretty Pines Thinlits  in Garden Green and Old Olive CS
Since I like odd numbers on my project I die cut one more small leaf.

 Here is a wonderful tip from  Connie  to adhere detailed die cuts

Place Tombow Multipurpose glue in a container and sponge on a clip
Dip the sponge into the glue (just a small amount of glue)
Dab the glue on the detailed cutout framelit/thinlit die
 Make sure you DO NOT move the die cut while dabbing the glue.
I use an old magazine to glue and use a new page each time I glue, so I always have a clean page.

Ink solid pine cone image with Soft Suede, and STAMP OFF first before stamping 
on to your card stock

 Ink pine cone detail with Early Espresso but stamp directly over the solid pine cone.

 You can use your Thinlits die

 This is the card insert.

Bonjour et Hello

Do you need a quick and simple Christmas card at the  last minute?
We have some ideas on our  Seashore Stampers Quick and Easy Card Blog Hop


Lovely as a Tree Christmas Card
(masking technique)

Masking Technique is to omit areas that you do not want colour or stamp

To create a mask:

I used the largest Oval from the Layering Oval Framelits set
and cut it out from a photocopier paper

Place temporary glue on the back of your mask, so it doesn't shift when sponging.
Sponge towards the center of the oval with Crumb Cake ink

Keep the  mask on the card front while stamping the trees.
Ink with Early Espresso ink  the group of trees from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set.

Remove the oval Mask

Ink the single tree with Garden Green Ink

Ink sentiment with Cherry Cobbler.

I used Dazzling Diamond glitter on the trees and ground covering.

Bonjour et Hello

I saw this fun card and had to make it.
Here is my version of Liz's card.

I inked the branch with the Stampin' Marker or
you can use the Espresso Ink Pad and remove the brown off the leaves with the Blender pen
and ink the leaves with the Garden Green Stampin' Marker

I used the Owl Builder Punch but fussy cut the scarf and branch

I used Stampin' Dimensionals raise the owl and the card front.
