A Tree For All Seasons

Here we are again...Friday already!! Who keeps stealing my time?? After a break yesterday, I'm back with some more of the cards that I made for the Clarity shows, last weekend and I hope you like them...

These tree stamps were both designed to be Christmas trees but when I saw the silhouette version, there was only one thing that came to mind and that was Halloween. I just thought it worked perfectly in conjunction with some Spellbinders Bats and the background which I created using a Big & Juicy ink pad!

The second version of the tree, is all about Christmas and I purposely chose to make this one, quite modern and bright. I love the combination of these colours together and it makes a change from traditional Christmas colours. The image was coloured using Promarkers and highlighted with Kuretake's Wink of Stella pens. As a finishing touch I added Rock Candy Distress Stickles to give the effect of snow.

I've got three more cards left from my Clarity share and I think I'm probably going to save my favourite for last, so...I'll see you tomorrow with the penultimate share and then on Sunday with my final card.

I hope everyone has a very happy and safe weekend and hope you enjoy every minute!
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my cards.

See you later!
Love Emma


  1. I agree Emma that is a perfect tree for Halloween, love your background too and those bats Re the perfect addition. Love your very modern Christmas card too and it's lovely to see Christmas done in differing colour palettes. Tracy x

  2. You are so right when you say that stamp was made for Halloween, but when you "dress" it up Christmas comes to life.
    Two superb cards - looking forward to seeing the remaining three

  3. Just catching up Emma. Two gorgeous cards and so very different. Love the modern Christmas Trees.
    Hope you have a great weekend.

  4. Hi Emma, sorry I missed these yesterday. I fell in love with this tree when I saw Barbara demonstrating with it on C&C. When you first see it you don't realise how versatile it is. Your stunning cards show it off perfectly! xx

  5. you have to be the best at taking one stamp and making entirely different cards that are as lovely as can be! (of course, I'm rather bias.. ;D)

    you made the tree both spooky and beautiful! just the little touches and decorations make all the difference!

    amazing work! :)


Thank you for all your comments and messages, they are all appreciated and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon...
