Sweet 'n Sassy Holiday Celebration - Christmas Pine and Scripture Tree

Hi all! Welcome to today's post, which features two new holiday sets from Sweet 'n Sassy! Links to the products used on today's two cards are listed at the end of this post.

Today's cards feature the Christmas Pine stamp set, below, and Scripture Tree set, above. I've also included photos of both stamp sets.

My Scripture Tree card features lots of Distress Ink and water. I started by smooshing a variety of brown Distress Inks onto a non-stick craft sheet, spritzing with water, and then placing a piece of Ranger water color paper down in the wet ink. Once the ink was completely dry, I stamped the Light of Christmas background stamp over the entire piece of water color paper.

The tree image was created in the same way, except that I white embossed the image before applying the Distress Inks. I hand cut the tree shape by simply following the shape of the words. The edges of both pieces of paper were covered with more Distress Ink, and I added a few rhinestones to finish the card.

My second card also features Distress Inks! They're so much fun! :-) I stamped the pine leaf and pine cone images in Distress Inks, and then used a water brush to move the color around and color in the tiny open spaces on the pine leaf and pine cone images. Distress Ink, in a light blue, was also added to the background. I gold embossed the sentiment, which was too hard to see on the background so I went over the letters with a black Fude ball pen...much better! I added a few paint splatters and popped the pine cones up with foam tape. The tree image was placed within a die cut circle and I dry embossed the background with a script embossing folder.

I hope you enjoyed today's cards! Be sure to visit the holiday set pages on the Sweet 'n Sassy web site...lots of great stamp sets to choose from and everything is shipping now!

Fantastic cards Kim. Love the heat embossed scripture tree with the distressed look. The coloring is amazing on the pines... also love the dry embossed background.
