Cool Treats Trees for JAI #368

Happy Friday everyone and welcome! There is something very special about Fridays - and no, not that it is almost the weekend, but it is time for a new challenge with the lovely team at Just Add Ink!

And this week we have a brand new type of challenge for you - to Just Add a Twist! The fabulously fun twist this week is suggested by Kelly and is to Use a Birthday set to make a Christmas project. Our fabulous team have all created amazing cards to inspire you so I hope you can take a moment to pop on over and take a look and join us :-)

This did take some thinking through I must admit - I had a couple of ideas but realised the sets I had in mind were not specifically "Birthday"..... So I sat down with the Catalogue and these Cool Treats cone trees were the result.  How cool indeed are the Framelits that emboss as well as cut out the trees!

All the trees were stamped first - the Tranquil Tide ones were then embossed directly with the framelits and the LLT version was given a gold make over :-)

Card stock: Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Whisper White, Gold Foil
Ink: Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist
Stamps: Cool Treats, Santa's Sleigh
Accessories: Big Shot, Frozen Treats Framelits, Layering Circle Framelits, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Softly Falling EF, Burlap ribbon, Tranquil Tide Ribbon, Gold Ribbon (Sab), Metallic Sequins Assortment

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to Just Add Ink and see all the fabulous inspiration the design team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this fun Twist Challenge too :-)

Happy stamping until next time,
