Holiday tree card set

Welcome back to my blog!  It's time for another Scrappy Tails Crafts project!  Have you seen all of the fantastic new products in the Snow Globe Flurries holiday release?? It's jam-packed with holiday goodness.  If you can't wait and want to check it right now, head HERE.

It was so hard to decide what to work with first but I absolutely LOVED the Winter Snow Trees dies.  I thought they would be perfect for making a set of cards!  Let's take a sneak peek at the set.


Alrighty, let's jump into a brief tutorial.

Step 1: Cut lots of trees out of assorted colors.  My choices were vintage inspired.


Step 2 : Cut lots of trees out of white cardstock.


Step 3: Glue tree layers together.  Add sparkle to the "snow" areas and let dry.


Step 4: Create textured backgrounds.  I used the Slimline Brick Background die to cute out a thick piece of cardstock.  Then I used embossing paste through it.  As soon as it was dry, I splattered each piece with coordinating color splatters and metallic paints.


Step 5: Adhere backgrounds to solid, coordinating cardstock.  For the panel layers I used the Slimline Pop Up Box dies.



Step 6:  Add trees!  The smaller tree is popped up with foam tape and I added tiny tree trunks.


Step 7: Add sentiment and complete cards.  I used the Hot Foil Bold Christmas Sentiments and foam tape on the back.







Step 8: Admire your handiwork!




Hope you love my mini slimline card set as much as I do!  Remember, you can use code STCBLOG to get 10% off in the Scrappy Tails Crafts store.

Purple Poinsettia Shaker

Hiya friends!  I'm so glad you are here for my next Scrappy Tails Crafts project!  My card for today is something I don't normally do.  It's a shaker card!  And not just that, it's a slimline shaker!!

When I first started this project, I didn't have an end game.  I just started playing around.  I ink blended Wilted Violet, Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves and Victorian Velvet distress inks onto a panel.  

Then I took Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and Rustic Wilderness distress inks and blended on another panel.

After that, I splattered the purple panel with silver paint.  Then I cut as many pieces out of the panels using the Outline Poinsettia dies and Assorted Christmas Leaves dies that I could.

Then I cut more pieces out of silver cardstock.  I put all of the pieces together mixing the foil pieces with the distress ink pieces.

It was at this point I decided I wanted to do a shaker.  I cut a piece of white cardstock down to a large slimline size.  I cut it out with a window slimline die (Whimsy Stamps Slimline Marquee).  Then I dry embossed the panel with the Slimline Brick Background die.  Next I splattered it with Hickory Smoke and Dusty Concord distress oxides, as well as silver paint.  I also used a blender brush and the Hickory Smoke to go around all of the edges, openings and raised parts of the panel.  I just didn't want it to be such a stark white.

Next step was to create a shaker.  I'm not going to go into great detail as I'm sure we've all seen it before.  I put a layer of acetate down, then foam tape, filled the windows, and finished it with another piece of acetate.  

I adhered the whole shaker panel to a white, slimline card base.  

Now I got out all of my flower bits.  I played around with it for a bit until I found the layout I liked.


The poinsettias were adhered in place with foam tape.  This left me room to glue down the leaves and twigs flat to the panel.

Now I just needed a sentiment!  I used the "thinking of you" word dies from the Slimline Pop Up Box die set.  I ink blended a scrap of white cardstock with the Dusty Concord distress oxide ink.  Then I remembered to put Stick It adhesive on the back.  This makes it so much easier to ad the little pieces onto my panel!

And that's it!  Thanks SO much for hanging out with me today!  Remember to use code STCBLOG to get 10% off at the Scrappy Tails Crafts store!
