Some Trees, a Snowflake and a Flower

 These are cards from one of my classes this past week.

This first card was inspired by a card on Pinterest.  Joyful Creations with Kim did this with masking.  I cut a panel and stamped it and then sponged.  There was no masking involved.  Then I attached the panel to my card front.  I LOVE it.  So easy and such a wonderful look.
Stamp Sets:  Lovely As A Tree, Family Reunion
Card stock:  Naturals Ivory
Ink:  Lucky Limeade, Always Artichoke, Pool Party, River Rock
Accessories:  Sponges, Early Espresso Marker
I inked the tree in Lucky Limeade, markered the trunk and then rocked a bit in the Always Artichoke.  Stamped the image and then stamped again and again.  Reinked and did the same.  Then I sponged the bottom in the Lucky Limeade and some in the middle.  Sponged River Rock in the middle into the top and the top with Pool Party. 

A sparkly thank you that could also be a Christmas card!  This is shimmery and beautiful in real life.
Stamp Set:  Lacy & Lovely
Card Stock:  Shimmery White, Bashful blue, Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack, Silver Glimmer Paper

 These colors are just absolutely lovely.  I don't know what I will do when Calypso Coral retires.  It is a favorite color of mine.

That is all for now!  More tomorrow.  Promise!

I love ALL of them, but the tree is just stunning. I need to CASE that one, so so pretty. Lovely job (as always).
