Tree trimmings

I loved this stamp set when I first saw it in the new catologue. I also knew that it would lend itself for a stamp a stack class :)
so heres what I've come up with. we're making 12 cards, 2 of each of these 6 designs using the opposite colours... all in one evening.
I was trying to use the one sheet wonder technique too, but once I'd cut all me bits out I kept trimming or ajusting them in some way so its only loosely based on the OSW , lol!
I've used real red and old olive cardstock (I know traditional but so suits the stamps) and the ski slope papers, although I have merry moments on order so we might use those for the class :)
The ribbons are the same colours as the card, 1/4 " and 5/8" and the scallop oval and the oval punches.
Sentiments are from Best yet (level 1 hostess stamps now retired) and Occasional greetings.
Anyway must go I really need an early night!

these are really good - like you say real red & old olive suit the theme of the cards. Looking at these has given me inspiration. I'm a friend of Tracey (SU demonstrator) in Derby - just wondering where in S Derbys are you and when are you having your stamp a stack & is it open to anyone - love your makes - Lesley x
