Twofer and more!

I took advantage of the Twofer Challenge rules being relaxed a little this month as we can make 2 different cards for the same occasion instead of different occasions with the theme of Holiday Greenery.
I used a Penny Black tree stamp from the Peaceful Winter set (30-450).

The square one uses 2 different tree stamps in varying shades of green, with one topped with a punched out gold shiny star and a sentiment from the Merry Up set (30-622).

The larger card on the left had the 'sky' inked with Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserve and the snowdrifts done with Tumbled Glass and Weathered Wood.  White embossed the tree, stamped the sentiment and spattered with acrylic paint before mounting it onto a stitched die.

As well as the Twofer challenge I am also linking up to -
PB&More  -  Christmas
Holly & Ivy - Anything Christmas
Christmas @ Sweet Stampin' - Trees

Thanks for looking and if you've left me a comment I really appreciate it. have a lovely day whatever you're doing. x

Great to see you, Viv! I adore both scenes you have created for your Christmas designs! You have made the shading on your moon-lit scene so perfect that I can literally feel the hush and excitement of that freshly fall snow where no footprints have been made yet! And your second design of masking with just the tree tops in varying shades showing is equally as magical!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #22! Hugs, Darnell

What a cute little tree and you've made it look entirely different in each of your cards! Beautiful, serene snowy scene on one, and lovely misty depth on the other. I'm completely in love with both cards! Thank you so much for joining us at Twofer this month, Viv!

Great Twofers Viv using these very pretty trees, and I love the wintry scene white embossed with sky colours that suggest there is more snow to come, and then the masked trees in the two beautiful greens with the sweet gold star on the centre one. x

Those are cute tree stamps. Looking in shades of green with that crisp edge.

LOVE the contrast in the two techniques - simply beautiful. I do love this challenge and will, one day, get my head around it enough to join in! These are both gorgeous.
