Another new stamp

This is another of the stamps from the shipment which arrived yesterday or the day before, I can't remember now.
Again from Stampin' Up, but I had to use a smaller sentiment than those in the set as the image itself is quite large and I didn't feel that there was sufficient room for any of them.
I stamped the image with Versamark and embossed it in gold. I always think it's like magic when the powder melts and the fabulous liquid gold appears.
The manuscript vellum is held in place by the tiny brads.
When I saw the image of the tree on the computer screen I thought it looked like a whole bunch of paperclips.
I think it's nearly time for a G&T, so I'll get this uploaded.
Bah Humbug - Favourite Medium (very difficult, but I do like heat embossing)
Alphabet Challenge - T ... Trees
For Fun Challenges - Black, White and 1 colour
Pollycraft Challenge - Christmas, no red or green


  1. Love this card Chrissie
    the non trad colours are super!

    Im still waiting for my first shipment and new catty to arrive...waiting patiently of course LOL

    Have a good weeeknd

  2. I agree Chrissie it is like magic and you're right about the paper clip effect too. It reminds me of a magnetic stress thing I had years ago - it didn't work as it was so stressful building the thing! LOL
    Love your card - off to explore what else you have been up to lately.
