Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at CAS Christmas and Colleen has chosen Christmas trees as the theme.
Christmas is creeping slowly closer, so why not play along and get your cards started now? The design team and our guest designer Steph have some wonderful inspiration for you.
I've had this tree stamp for ages, bought it at a craft show in Brisbane with my sister. (Boy that feels like a lifetime ago lol!)
I stamped it using Versafine Clair Shady Lane green and embossed it with a new to me embossing powder, Lindys angel wings peacock. I love the metallic shimmer it has.
The sentiment is a retired Stampin Up one, stamped in Versafine nocturne and embossed with rose gold powder. I added some rouge perfect pearls on the berries.
I managed to take both of these stamps off their wooden blocks and used my misti for stamping. It streamlined the process having everthing lined up. Might make this my design for this Christmas!
I'm linking up to these challenges:
Merry Little Christmas Challenge, anything goes.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, stamp it in September.

What a lovely, lovely card and tree stamp Cathy, and I love the shimmer from the embossing powder you used! I've peeled many a stamp off their wooden blocks so I could use my MISTI...don't you just LOVE that tool?! :0)
This is so elegantly done and the stitched panel looks fabulous with that pretty embossed tree! I just love the overall CAS look!
This is beautiful. The shine is gorgeous and the little red berries decorate it wonderfully. I don't know how I stamped before the Misti.
I love the simple elegance of this tree stamp and when you embossed it, you made it even more special. Beautiful!
What a lovely find this stamp was Cathy and I know what you mean about craft shows feeling like something from another life! I love the shine you gave your tree with the embossing and the red of the berries pop beautifully. Vicky x
This is a beautiful Christmas tree, Cathy, and I love this embossing color! Wow!
I so love that Lindy's embossing powder and I so love this beautiful card Cathy x.
Your card is so pretty with your leafy, embossed tree. I love all the swirls and leaves and the pretty red berries.
This is such a lovely CAS Christmas tree card, Cathy! Love the shade of green and the pretty metallic shine from heat-embossing!
What a gorgeous tree Cathy and I thought it was foiled as it is so bright and shiny, but no surprise that it is in fact a Lindy's EP and the Rose Gold EP looks great on the sentiment and love the Perfect Pearls on the berries. Such an elegant and beautiful card. x
OMG I love the sparkle on that embossing powder :) beautiful tree with pretty red berries.
Wow, that embossing powder is stunning... the shine is amazing. The tree image is so beautiful. A perfect design for mass producing.
Simply gorgeous, Cathy ... the shimmer and shine from the EP is fantastic ... love the touch of red in the berries! Yep, gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)
Shiny and bright - very nice!
