Christmas Card Club #11- Christmas Trees

Hello everyone, and I hope this finds everyone well. This fortnights challenge is from me, and is for Christmas Trees- Indoor or Outdoor.
I've used both options, and the first one is a card I case'd from one I saw Gina K of Stamp TV make, using one of her own stamp sets.
My tree is froma set by Indigo Blu,called Winter Wonderland. The hills were sponged with torn paper and Archival Cornflower Blue ink.
 The sentiment is from Phill Martin, Scribbled Christmas Petite set.
 A few baubles added to the tree with Red & Gold Stickles. The embossing folder used for the mount piece is from Crafts Too.










 This is a Sweet Poppy stencil called Mistletoe tree, and was done using home made glitter paste.
 Some half pearls finished them off.








Another Sweet Poppy stencil, Snowflake Tree, this time in silver glitter paste, and a few acrylic gems for some extra sparkle.




I'm looking forward to seeing everyones take on the theme.  I missed the Christmas Wreaths week, while I was on holiday, and the next one, Sentiment as Focal Point, due to a burst water pipe- not indoors I hasten to add, but a lot of upheaval nonetheless. I'll be trying to catch upon those challenges, as I have many wreath stamps and dies I'd love to use, and the Sentiment one is a style I've been meaning to try for a long time.

Hi Shaz, what a lovely group of beautiful trees. I particularly love the different shades of the tree stencil cards, what a big difference the change-out of the colors did to this pretty stencil design. THe silver on black is so impressive as well, and I love your snowhills with that gorgeous tree in #1 card. Thanks for a great challenge, and sorry I was late posting! Hope you are well. TFS & Hugs
