Shady Tree Studio Day 2



Hi there! Welcome back for day two of the Shady Tree Studio release. I am using stamps from the Just Believe set. One of the things I like about this set is the nice mix of sentiments and images. On this card I let the sentiment take the stage. I used my nesties to cut out a panel from the front of the card and then a smaller nestie to cut out a piece from some rustic cream cardstock. I stamped my sentiment in dark chocolate ink. I stamped the little star ornament on a second piece of card, colored it and cut it out. I popped it up with a pop dot. I inked it up with wild honey distress ink and popped it in the middle of the cut panel. I inked the main card with tea die from PTI. I love the way it came out and I hope you do too!
This second card uses this adorable little Christmas tree from the Just Believe set. It reminds me of the Charlie Brown Christmas tree, especially with that little blanket around it. I added some glitter to my copic coloring to glitz it up.
My background was made by weaving together scarlet jewel and ripe avocado ribbons (PTI). I matted my tree on some card cut with nesties. I love how this card came out. Especially the ribbon, its so pretty IRL. Come back tomorrow because I will have more awesome stuff from Shady Tree Studio. Also don't forget the rest of the design team. You can find the links on my side bar <-----------.
