Peace and Joy, FF42, CCMC324 & TC16


Hi there, Friends! I finally found a moment to sneak into my craft room and came up with this CAS number featuring the Festival of Trees and Good Greetings stamp sets. I'm using the On Point Embossing Folder for the first time, and love the way it works with the tree. I'm also playing along with three challenges.


I absolutely love the inspiration photo at Festive Friday. I tried to channel all that white space and traditional colors with a modern style.


The colors are from Create with Connie and Mary. I didn't have any festive papers in Baked Brown Sugar so I substituted Crumb Cake. I hope the ladies don't mind! 


Leslie's sketch at The Challenge was exactly what I had in mind for my creation. 


Nothing complicated here, folks. The circle and starburst were cut with Framelits, and the tree was cut with the coordinating tree punch. The little star is a punch too, and the little birdie cut out by hand.

Stamp Sets: Festival of Trees, Good Greetings
Card Stock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Designer Series Paper: Trim the Tree
Ink Pads: Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler
Tools: Big Shot, Circles and Starburst Framelits, On Point Embossing Folder, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Tree Punch
