Tree & Kitties

I've got a couple more cards to share my my crafty time on Sunday.  This first one uses the sketch from Just Add Ink and the Christmas Tree prompt from Just Us Girls.  I promised you more of last year's Essentials by Ellen stamps so here is my favourite scribbly tree.  So cute!  I coloured it with Copics, covered it with Wink of Stella and added red pearl ornaments.  I also used some fun ombre washi tape for a pop of colour being the main panel.


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Old Olive, Basic Black) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Tree & sentiment from Christmas Scribbles) Essentials by Ellen
Inks:  (VersaMark, Memento Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Wonky Stitched Rectangle) My Favourite Things
Markers:  (Y08, YG95, E35) Copic
Washi:  Recollections
Glitter:  (Clear Wink of Stella) Zig
Gems:  Recollections

Next is a card for the Make Your Mark challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.  I'm working through my Newton's Nook holiday stamps this year and am coloring each kitty in both grey and ginger tabby colours.  Which one do you like best?  
(Lindsey, I already know your answer!!)

Love!...Jen this card is delightful! Such a fun and funky tree image and that wonky stitched border is the perfect detail. Thanks for sharing at Just Add Ink.

Lindsey said...

We did have the ginger Jasper before the pearly grey Lord Duncan! :D But that grey on the rich red, yep, that's my choice. ;) But I also love your scribbly tree card!

I love that tree stamp and you've displayed it well with the matching green border, Jen. Love the kitties too, and I don't care what color they are. They're both cute.

Darnell said...

These are all terrific, Jen, but OMG, that green card and that fun matching green whimsical tree just made me drool! Is that old olive, because it looks like old olive and old olive's always been my most favorite SU color and I don't even LIKE olives!! Hugs, Darnell

Trio of delights, Jen! Smitten with your scribbly tree (wish EH shipping to Canada wasn't so pricey...sighh...) and your Newtons? Oh my! I'll take one of each, please!
