This is the same technique as yesterday – Adhesive Sheets to adhere DSP to a Thick Whisper White tag – but with a very different visual result. The starry night sky seemed to be begging for that perfect tree!
Stamps: Seasonal Chums (greeting)
Color Palette: Whisper White, Basic Black, Garden Green, Copper Foil
Accessories: Big Shot, Santas Sleigh Thinlits, Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Metallic Sequins (retired)
To get the copper “shadow” on both sides of the tree, I just cut the copper tree in two down the middle. I also shortened the trunk, as it was too long to fit on my tag.
This tree is embellished with one of the patterns from Touches of Texture. I added Rhinestone jewels to the branches, and I personally think it’s a little too over-the-top. You could drape this tree with a mini-sequin garland and it would really sparkle!
We’re just days – hours, really – from the release of the 2016 Holiday catalog and I thought you would enjoy a little sneak peek. Here’s something sparkly I designed:
This card has a lot of texture and shine, and might surprise you when you find how easy it is to assemble.
Stamps: Oh What Fun
Color Palette: Shimmer White, Real Red, Basic Black, Silver, Gold
Accessories: Santa’s Sleigh thinlits, Precision Base Plate and the Big Shot, Glitter Stampin’ Emboss Powder, Versamark Ink, Heat Gun, Jingle Bells, Gold Foil, Silver Foil, Stampin’ Dimensionals
Oh What Fun was the coordinating stamp set from last year’s Christmas tag kit and remains in the Annual Catalog this year. I’m really happy to see it back as I was a huge fan of so many of the sentiments!
This is one of the card’s you’ll make if you join us on September 10th. Early Bird registration ends Thursday, September 1st!
Forgive me if I bypass Halloween and Thanksgiving for a bit…I’ll be back, but the Holiday catalog has such beautiful Christmas things:
Color Palette: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Real Red, Mossy Meadow, GOLD
Accessories: Big Shot, Precision Base Plate, Christmas Greetings Thinlits, Very Vanilla 1 1/4″ Subtle Stripes Vanilla Ribbon, Home for Christmas Enamel Dots, Home for Christmas DSP, Banner Triple Punch, Glimmer Paper, 2 1/2″ Circle Punch
Yes I fussy-cut the poinsettia. It’s very forgiving.
Let me tell you about cutting out these words with the Christmas Greetings Thinlits and the Precision Base plate. The words pop right out of the Thinlit. There are no funny bumps from the holes meant to help you poke them out. The skinny bits don’t get twisted and pulled out of shape. You need this. I certainly do!
