Utah Divas International - Tree Trimmings

This week I played with a color challenge over at Utah Divas International - what a lovely photo they have for color inspiration this week and I enjoyed working with these colors - Concord Crush, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla. I used my Stampin' Up! Tree Trimmings Set and my Vintage Trinkets with a touch of sparkle.

The card base here is Concord Crush, which very well may be my favorite of the In Colors this year. I ran the Chocolate Chip main piece through my Big Shot with the Finial Press Embossing Folder and then rubbed Very Vanilla Craft Ink over the raised areas and around the edge with a Sponge Dauber. This really makes the embossed image pop and is so easy to do - the Sponge Dauber is my friend! I stamped a few of the ornaments from Tree Trimmings stamp set in Chocolate Chip and Concord Crush onto Very Vanilla and embossed them with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder. Iridescent Ice gives everything such a lovely sparkle and I use it often. I trimmed out the ornaments with my Paper Snips and adhered them to the embossed panel with Mini Glue Dots and some cording. I added the 'merry' tag (also embossed in Iridescent Ice and the edges sponged) attached with one of the pins from Vintage Trinkets to the Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon bow.
