I just received my newest stamp set from Pink Cat Studios. It's called "Limitless Limbs" and here is my first card. The set comes with two styles of trees and a humongous amount of small stamps to embellish the tree. I used the owl and the Christmas tree light bulbs.

The biggest mistake I made was stamping the tree directly onto patterned paper--that meant stamping the tiny tiny light bulbs onto white cardstock, coloring and Stickling them, then cutting EACH ONE and adhering them to the branches. Next time I'll try to stamp the tree onto white and use pp as a back drop, etc. It was very time-consuming but I like the way each light bulb twinkles.

I used liquid glass from CTMH to make the owl pop, along with a dimensional dot behind it for dimension.

The little girl looking up at the owl is a 3D sticker. I tore two pieces of white cardstock for some added dimension as snow banks, and pulled and fastened one corner of the pp down to break up the squarish look to the card. Of course, I had to add a snowflake or two, you know me and snowflakes!!!

I can't wait to have some play time for this new set. There are stamps for a Halloween tree, birthday tree, cupcake tree, valentine tree, and even a cute little monkey and a banana. Looks like I won't get any sleep tonight!!

This is so cute! You did a great job with the tree. I bought this set awhile ago but haven't used it yet. I can't wait to see what else you do with it!
