It was back to basics for my beginners this week . I wanted to show them that all they required for paper crafting is stamps , inks and paper . I chose Lovely As a Tree for this week's class because it is so versatile and we used it to create two Christmas cards and a birthday card . As it does not contain a sentiment stamp I suggested Better Together as a great versatile stamp set .
Here is a birthday card we created using Always Artichoke and Early Espresso.

The first Christmas card uses Real Red and Garden Green with some of the yummy Real Red ribbon available from the Holiday Catalogue .

I adore the technique used to create this next card and was asked for a tutorial by one of my stamping sisters so here you go !

Begin with a piece of sticky note torn into a mountain shape like so

Stamp your trees along the top 

Add a mask punched from a 1 1/2 inch circle and sponge this whole top piece

Reposition mask and repeat the process , continually removing and repositioning the mask until you are happy with the scene you have created . you are an artist ! 

The finished card after some multipurpose glue mixed with water was flicked on with a paint brush and then some silver glitter was added . Love this ! You should really give it a go !
