Well I seem to have drafted this post back in the 24th of May and never posted it so I'm extremely late showing this Friday Mashup card! lol

Sara was our hostess and she asked us to Mashup Trees & Embossing.

I've ran out of Birthday Cards in my stash so it's time to replenish.. So you'll be seeing a lot of Birthday Cards in the next few weeks.  I used the set Lovely as a Tree for my image and a Simon Says Stamp set for my sentiment.

My card base is Old Olive then I added a piece of Etcetera DSP. Then I added a strip of Chocolate Chip that I heat embossed with the Hardwood background stamp. I created a banner from Soft Sky for my sentiment. It need a little something in the upper corner so I added some Chocolate Chip Candy Dots.

I stamped the image onto a piece of Mixed Media Paper.. Something new I was trying and I don't like it. The tree is stamped in StazOn and then I added a light wash of color with some Old Olive, Garden Green, Soft Sky & Chocolate Chip ink refill and my Aqua Painter. 

Sorry I've been MIA .. I actually have been stamping and there is a stack of cards on my desk to be shown .. Life seems to get in the way every now and then. We never realize how much extra work it takes to photograph the card and edit it and then blog about it. No to mention making the card.. Ha Ha. 

I hope you are having a great Wednesday.. see ya tomorrow for a new Challenge at 'Tis the Season. 


  1. Awesome card, Holly. I love the tree and the Hardwood used with the distressed striped DSP.

  2. I love how you colored the tree! And the stripes are wonderful too.
