Celebrate Moments

My friend and fellow TAC demo Anna recently sent me this set and challenged me to make some cards with it. I've made a few, but so far this is my fav!! I used Kristina's Color Inspiration #15. These colors were just made for this set, plus they go so well together!!! The top of my tree is stamped with Certainly Celery. I then inked up the limbs/trunk stamp in Chocolate Chip and stamped it once on the Celery top and once on Whisper White. The top is cut out and raised with dimensionals. I love how it peeks over the layers underneath. The flowers are stamped in Chocolate Chip and colored with a Celery and Rust marker. The Celery strip is stamped with a cluster of leaves and the Cocoa background is stamped with the limbs/trunk image. I really love how that looks!! On the Rust background, I stamped my sentiment (celebrate moments!) in Chocolate. Then I used my mat pack and paper piercer to create some holes along both the top and bottom edge. Dang Anna, you are going to make me buy this set!!! Happy Stamping.

What a gorgeous card, Kim! I just love the colors and that's a neat idea how you cut the tree out to make it "pop" a bit more.
