Festival of Trees Merry and Bright

Today’s Festival of Trees card is a fairly quick and easy one to create.  This is another one that is loosely based on the card sketch we’ve bee featuring the past few posts.  (You can see them here, here, and here.)  Again, the idea of the sketch is the three trees grouped together. Project Notes: I used an unconventional Christmas green for this card…Wild Wasabi and no red color! The… Read More »

Festival of Trees Merry Christmas

Last week I shared three different cards that were created using Stampin’ Up! Festival of Trees stamp set and were also based on the same sketch idea.  Today’s card is also loosely based on that same sketch as well. Here’s the similarity of today’s card to the two shared last week….the three trees are grouped together.  Instead of a cardinal, there is a punched star at the top of the… Read More »

Festival of Trees Joyeux Noel

Well, today’s Festival of Trees card is one that I received in a card swap from another demonstrator.  The interesting thing is that I received this card AFTER I created the other two cards I shared with you on Monday.  Why is that interesting you may ask. Because this card is based on the exact same sketch idea that I shared on Monday….three trees grouped together with a cardinal.  She… Read More »

Festival of Trees Two Ways

Well, this month I’m featuring card projects made with the Festival of Trees stamp set (135059 or bundled with tree punch 137640).  I have two projects to share today, as they are both based on the same layout.  Today’s two cards are a great way to see how to use a card sketch, and change up the elements to make it your own.  Here’s the second card. The “shared” card… Read More »

I wonder if any of you figured out which stamp set I’ll be featuring on my blog this month.  If you guessed Festival of Trees (135059) you were right!!  Can I just say, “I LOVE this little stamp set!!” Today’s card was one that those who attended my September Holiday Catalog Make-and-Take created.  It features several items from Stampin’ Up’s!  2015 Holiday Catalog. Project Notes: Background texture was created using… Read More »
