Bah Humbug- Christmas Trees

Well, it's my last week as a Guest Designer over on the Bah Humbug Blog. The time has absolutely flown by! As you read this, I will be in Malta with my Husband having a weekend break, so thoughts of Christmas probably couldn't be further from my mind!
My first card was made using a couple of Tim Holtz stamps, stamped onto cream card, coloured with Distress Inks. I embossed the piece stamped with the music stamp, using a Tim Holtz tree embossing folder, and picked out the embossing, using Pine Needles Distress Ink. I matted both pieces of card onto dark green card, and used a lovely backing paper from Papermania. I then made a handmade flower from brown parcel paper, using a Nestability die. I added a red button and some paper string. Some leaves cut from a Magnolia die finish the flower off.
My second card was made by stamping an Elusive Images tree onto acetate with white Stazon, and glittering the back. I stamped a sentiment onto watercolour paper, and mounted this onto a green mirri card. I used a lovely Christmas paper from Artylicious, and added some red brads to attach the acetate to my card.

The acetate was so shiny, it was difficult not to get a reflection of myself in the picture!
Don't forget to pop over to the Bah Humbug Blog to see what everyone else is getting up to, and thank you so much for stopping by for the last four weeks. I have really enjoyed my stint as Guest Designer. Judith xx

Two lovely cards here and plenty of inspiration. I'm sure you will back again as guest designer for BH at some time.

YooHoo Judith ...
*waves across the water*
I really hope you are indulging in some well earned R+R with hubby. We have thoroughly enjoyed having you as our guest at Bah! Humbug! and really appreciate all the beautiful projects you have created for our challenges during the past few weeks. I know that you have introduced me to some lovely new techniques to try when I return, including making lovely flowers from brown paper. I'm sure the scrunching will be good physio lol! Thank you for sharing your talent with us at Bah! Humbug! and we hope you will continue to visit us and participate in future challenges.

These are both great Judith. I love the TH stamps and that tall trees embossing folder and the Elusive Images tree stamp was on the first plate of Christmas stamps I bought from them.

You have made some fabulous cards for Bah Humbug not just during your guest DT spot but since the beginning of the year. I shall no where to come when I'm stuck for any idea later in the year.
