Since I LOVE stamping--I was all over this one. I decided to create a Christmas tree with lots of stamped features: I cut the triangle pieces from some green paper (that is actually marketed as Halloween paper!) folding a square in half and then cutting the half triangle shape so that the sides would match AND so that I could add some dimension when the tree is assembled. I used Ribbon Stripes stamp set (Gina K Designs) to stamp the fun designs on each layer.
Each triangle is sewn and then I put them aside.
The "joy" sentiment is from Seasonal Sayings set (Gina K Designs) forms the bottom of the tree. I stamped the sentiment and then replaced the o with a little heart. Then, I assembled the tree by adding each layer with dimensional stickers to give the tree a little depth.
Here is a close up of the stamped tree. What a fun challenge!
