Festive Friday #1

WOW, what a year, 2011 has gone away and now we are starting over....  It's a brand new year and a great time to start making those Christmas Cards - YES, I did say Christmas Cards...  I do this Festive Friday Christmas Hop all during the year.  On the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month (except Dec) I will host this Festive Friday Blog hop.  Where I hope to inspire you to make some of your Christmas Card early.  I know its seem crazy, but I really love having all different Christmas Cards for the first time ever...  So I have to do it again.
here is my first card of the year.
Stamp: "There is No place like Home"- Viva Las Vegastamps!
Creative Paperclay - you can purchase at Viva Las Vegastamps!
Mold from Articus Studio
Embossing Plate:  Tim Holtz
Mica Color "Vintage" UsArtQuest 
Memories Dye Ink " Sepia" - Stewart Superior
Miracle tape from Viva Las Vegastamps! - Can't live without this stuff - works so good on ribbons. 

I just got a new set of Mica color from UsArtQuest called "Vintage" so I had to play with them.  Adore the colors of this palette.    First I embossed the tree image on top Cream Cardstock.  then I just started to paint.  I used the green color on the tree tops and the brown color on the trunks, then I added some of the blue around the edges.  LOVE.....
I had this Creative Paperclay Pointesseta  and paint again using the Mica Color from UsArtQuest.
Stamp "There is no place like Home" with my Memories Dye ink directly on the cardstock.  Added the ribbon with my Miracle tape.  the only way to glue down a ribbon.

Here is the rest of the team - stop by and see their  Christmas Cards too.  Your next stop is Leslie's Blog. 

Hope you leave me some love.....
