Oh Chrstmas Tree in May

This week Stacy has chosen a site full of color and texture to inspire the IC650 challenge at Splitcoaststampers!  I enjoy creating Christmas all year long if inspiration strikes and it did just that today! THIS beautiful greeting card inspired my design.


To create my background I simply stamped distress inks on plastic packaging and spritzed with water.  I tapped first Lucky Clover onto my cardstock then dried the watercolor with my heat gun.  I did the same with Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves.   For the top layer, I used a tree die from Hampton Art and then stamped the sentiment from Love Bug Christmas by Unity Stamp Co. 

For the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the Love Bug Christmas kit.  The tree die cut was sitting on my desk with one tiny green ink splatter which gave me the idea to tap the remaining ink on the plastic packaging randomly onto the tree die cut and adhere it to the inside.


I am playing along with a couple of Christmas challenges.
