Less is More 43... a Bit of BLING!!

This week's challenge at Less is More is to make a  card with some bling on it!  I made 3 cards...ALL TREES...ALL CHRISTMAS...go figure...that's the extent of my creativity this!!
I made this first one with a stamp that was given to me...I believe the co. name is Alias Smith and Rowe( small filagree tree).  Stamped both tree and sentiment with versamark and embossed in silver. Dotted  tree with rhinestones.  Sentiment is Hero Arts and used an embossing folder for the card.  Framed image with silver paper, too.
 This second one was made with a Stampin Up tree(Snow Swirled).  I stamped in Real Red, clear embossed and added some silver dots with Pen Touch silver pen and added a red rhinestone in center of each large snowflake.  I made the tree base by cutting a square, cutting an end off at a slant and using that cut piece to cut the opposite side(so their angle matched each other.  I stamped the card with Hero Arts Magical Background and clear embossed.  On a fluke, I decided to try to sponge some Stazon Silver Metallic ink over the embossed swirls....and I got a silver looking embossed card...kinda like it:)!!  Ran out of room for sentiment...will put a Merry Christmas on inside. Here's a close up of the tree and it's silver dots and bling.(my daughter said she could hardly see the bling on this thus the close up:)!!
 This 3rd one I went CRAZY with Bling:)!!!!!  I stamped these trees from A Muse(Avian Notes) and couldn't stop dotting with red and green rhinestones!!  Added a sentiment from Hero Arts.  Popped up on poppy parade card....the ribbon...funny...I bought yesterday at Walmart for wrapping Christmas gifts...pulled it out of the bag remembering it was red and that it has green dots...funny how things work, sometimes!!...another fun challenge:)!!!

Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
