November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Seasonal Trees

The holiday season is upon us, and Close To My Heart has a beautiful, organic stamp of the month set for November!  Follow this hop to see some amazing projects with Seasonal Trees.  (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Jean's blog.  From here you'll visit Carrie's blog next.)  I decided to create a set of 4 cards featuring each season.
First up is winter: the background is Glacier B&T from the Boutique collection.  I stamped the trees in first and second (and even third) generation in Charcoal ink.  I added the bird with Candy Apple ink.  The "snow" is a piece of White Daisy card stock that I tore to give the rough edge.  I layered texture paste onto that piece and then some clear shimmer brush on top of the paste.
Can you see the sequins from our shaker kits?  Use Liquid Glass to attach them to your projects!
My spring card uses the Grateful Heart paper pack with the addition of Sweet Leaf ink.  (The darker leaves are stamped with Fern ink.)
My summer card also uses the Grateful Heart collection plus White/Fern stitched ribbon.
Finally, my fall card is full of color!  I added a Sapphire bird house.  The leaves run the gamut of the Grateful Heart collection colors.
Thank you for visiting my blog.  I hope I've inspired you to create with the November stamp of the month, Seasonal Trees.

I'd love a  comment before you leave to go to Carrie's blog next.  Thank you!

  1. Wow! You knocked this one out of the park with your variations! That top one...looks like a true, wintery scene. All of them are great!

  2. Loved all of your seasonal trees and thanks for doing such a thorough explanation of each card.

  3. LOVE these, Haley!!! The Winter scene makes me want COLD weather (not in Texas 'till probably late December or early January though)

  4. Haley, these cards are wonderful! I love that the cardinal is in each of them. I'd have a hard time picking a favorite - but it might be the winter card.

  5. I agree with Melissa. Your blog is my favorite of this month’s hop!

  6. Beautiful cards! My favorite is the snow one.

  7. Fantastic cards! I love the winter scene and your fall cards!!

  8. Love your cards! The winter scene is so realistic!
