Stacking Revisited

A few posts ago I explained how I found some inspiration
from my current Take Ten magazine and created the hoot owl card. I have come to realize that you can pretty much stack any of your holiday images into a tree shape. My first card was created by stacking snowflakes. These are ones I had from my large Christmas set from Fancy Pants. The sentiment and birds are from 2 separate sets from Inkadinkado. I had been hording this embossed metal edging from my scrapbook stash. The star topper is a tiny punch. I added lots of clear gems for bling. My second card is a bit
more whimsical. For this card I stacked a cute penguin stamp and added a star topper. I added Fancy Pants swirls and sponging. The swirls were outlined in Stickles for shimmer. I added some Crystal Lacquer and sprinkled chunky glitter to simulate snow around the penguins. My dark card stock layer, was sanded to give it some dimension. I pulled my decorative scissors out of hiding to jazz up my blue layer. My images layer was distressed around the edges. I added ribbon and Dewdrops for embellishments.
Give it a try, you may come up with something very surprising!
