Peppermint Tree







The Merry Monday Christmas Card Club Challenge #82 is to use Red, Aqua, and White with circles. I found a small wooden peppermint stamp that happens to be a circle. I don't know the name of the stamp and can't find it. I stamped and punched out the peppermint circles with a Recollections 5/8" punch. Then, I shaped the circles into a tree and hand cut a tree trunk. The trunk was distressed with an embossing folder, Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes.
 
I'll also enter the  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes
 
Dynamic Duos two color challenge is real red and Bermuda bay. I subbed with Cherry Cobbler.
 
 Twisted Tuesday has a FREE for ALL-Anything Goes challenge-who doesn't love those.
 
The rest of the recipe is below:
 
Stamps-Stampabilities/Swirly Happy Holidays, unknown peppermint stamp
Paper-PTI white cardstock, SU chocolate chip for tree trunk
Ink-Stampin'Up! Bermuda Bay and Cherry Cobbler
Accessories-aqua gemstone, dimensionals
