Black & Gold

Here's one more card using those fabulous Tree stamps from Stamp Addicts; today I posted all the sample cards of to Sarah and Vicki to hopefully appear on this Friday's TV programmes at 10am and 1pm on Create & Craft.  This is extremely simple, I think I spent longer trying to take a decent photo of this than I did making it!
The trees are gold embossed onto mountboard, the edges of the tiles embossed too.  They were then sponged with Soot Black Distress Ink.  The gold mirri card has an EK Success border and some ribbon with knots in it.  I think this could be a Christmas card or something else again, whichever I like it:).
My card is for the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - sundae bar I used black, distressing (ink) and sparkle
One Stop Craft - no designer paper
Fussy & Fancy - black, border punch and bling
Charisma Cardz - embossing
Paper Play - use black
Prairie Fairy - wet embossing
Simply Create - shades of black


  1. This is stunning and the black and gold is so elegant. I own a few rubber stamps but have never inked them because I don't really know how to work with them. After seeing this beauty though, I think I better look for some tutorials and get started.
