o'tannenbaum revisited


Happy October! The first of the month means that it is time for the Papertrey Ink senior design team challenge. This month we are all sharing projects that we created with the O' Tannenbaum set:


Stamping for the holidays is one of my very favorite things and I love the trees and details in the O'Tannenbaum set - it works beautifully for my favorite rustic style! I also went a little non traditional using Aqua Mist and Hawaiian Shores on my projects that I am sharing today.


First up is a line up of trees in the snow. I stamped the trees in Olive Twist alternating with Ripe Avocado. On the Olive Twist trees I stamped Aqua Mist Ornaments and on the Ripe Avocado trees I stamped Hawaiian Shores Ornaments. It's very subtle, but I also added the "twinkle" around the trees in Soft Stone.


I put the trees behind a snow drift using the In the Meadow die that I also added the "merry & bright" sentiment to.

This card has a little bit of stamping because of the line of trees, but in general would be a very good card to mass produce for the holidays.


Next up is a more rustic tree that I stamped onto kraft cardstock. I stamped the tree in Olive Twist and then added the base and star in Cocoa Bean. The details on the tree are stamped in Hawaiian Shores and Fresh Snow inks.


The "joy" sentiment was perfect to pair with this tree. I stamped it under the tree and then die cut the stamped image out with the oval die from the Noted: Scalloped A2 die collection. I added a bit of shimmer to the card with a glitter striped strip that I created with Scor-tape, white cardstock, and glitter.


Make sure to visit the rest of the Papertrey Ink senior design team to see the projects that they created with the O'Tannenbaum set: BetsyDawnDanielle, and Melissa.
