The tree that Rachel had us make for our latest Facebook gathering used a roll of Quaters for the tree trunk. Well, I didn’t have a enough quarters for a roll so I thought why not LifeSavers. Have you tried looking for LifeSavers rolls not during the Christmas season? Well, it’s not easy. I did manage to find BreathSavers so that’s what I’m going with. The trunk is a piece of 3″ x 3 1/8″ piece of Soft Suede Cardstock and I used Tear & Tape to adhere it to itself. Then I folded over the top part and added glue dots before putting on the leaves. I put all of my leaves on a 1″ punched circle before I had the BreathSavers, it would be much easier to do after you have the BreathSavers. Check out Rachel’s post for how she did the tree.
The second project was this beautiful card featuring the Tropical Escapes Designer Series Paper.
The July 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit was still on my crafting table so I had to make a few more cards with it. I wanted to use the Basket Weave Dynamic embossing folder, I think it really adds to the cards. I also pulled in Blueberry Bushel, Granny Apple Green, and Poppy Parade to use with the embossing folder.
I love getting my monthly Paper Pumpkin kit but sometimes it’s not exactly something I would use as is. I think 3″ x 3″ cards are adorable but I can’t mail them in that form so I decided to change these to A2 size cards ( 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″). All I did to change them was cut the 3″ x 6″ card base in half ( now I have two of them!), cut the tissue paper to use for background paper and add a Crumb Cake card base. So easy and so cute!
It took me a while to get the colors for this card, my crafting table has some rejects still sitting on it. I wanted to use the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper in the July Sale so that was my color palette. I love the Soft Sea Foam but I had such a hard time picking which colors I was going to feature with it. I like how it turned out though.
As promised, here is another card using the Abstract Impressions stamp set and the Springtime Impressions die set. For a video on how to make this fun diagonal fold check out Dawn Griffith’s. I based mine off of one that Susan Campfield had us make at one of her team gatherings but I can’t find a post on it from her.
Using the Soft Sea Foam cardstock, score along the short side at 4 ¼”, rotate and score along the long side at 5 ½”.
Using the Stampin’ Trimmer, cut from the top right corner to the bottom left corner. (You will get two cards out of the base.)
Using the Big Shot Embossing Mats, emboss the lower left corner of the Shaded Spruce cardstock. Cut diagonally from upper left to lower right.
Using Pacific Point ink, stamp sentiment on Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the 2” circle punch. Punch the Pacific Point cardstock using the 2 ¼” circle punch. Adhere Whisper White Circle to Pacific Point circle.
Die cut flower from Soft Sea Foam cardstock.
Die cut butterfly from Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper.
Adhere Shaded Spruce triangles to card front.
Adhere circle to the center of the card only putting adhesive on the upper right side.
Adhere butterfly with mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and slightly cover the circle with the head to keep the card closed.
