Presents & Pinecones Festive Tree and 2 SALES!

I have had this 18" paper mache tree form for almost a year now and when I saw the Presents and Pinecones Designer Series Paper I finally decided what I wanted to do with it. See below to get a special deal on this paper!
I started by cutting six 1"x12" strips of each of the paper patterns I wanted to use. I then cut those into 1"x3" pieces which punched one end of with the Banner Triple Punch. Next, I used my bone folder to curl the paper "branch". Beginning at the bottom of the tree form I used Tombow Multi-purpose glue to attach the pieces, working my way up to the top.

The 6-sided star was created using the Star of Light Stamp Set and the Starlight Thinlits Dies. I stamped the star onto Whisper White cardstock using VersaMark ink and heat embossed Gold powder. Gold Baker's Twine is layered between the embossed & designer series paper stars. The star is glued to a short skewer which extends into the tree form.

Of course, there is a coordinating card! I love the heat embossed gold swoosh.

Today is World Card Making Day and we are celebrating with a SALE!

We had so much fun at our team Stamp & Share this month. Here are some pictures of the festivities...
Our projects
 We started the day with a few demonstrations and these stampers are listening carefully.

 April showed us how to make a custom box using the Gift Box Punch Board

 Here is her box with several cards highlighting the Star of Light Stamp Set and Starlight Thinlits Dies

 Christine created 12 petite houses with the Sweet Home Stamp Set and Home Sweet Home Thinlits Dies. One for each month of the year. She had lots of tips to share!

 Some of Christine's creations.

 And a few more. So cute!

The Holiday Catalog is LIVE!

I may not be ready for the end of summer and the kids to go back to school but I do love celebrating holidays and getting ready for them. It is so exciting that the Holiday Catalog is live today!!!
I took part in the Inking Everything team swap and this is the card I made. I received 12 other fabulous cards which I will be sharing with you in the coming days. Presenting Christmas Pines...

I used the Christmas Pines stamp set and coordinating Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies. Do you see the bronze embossing powder on the pine cone? The thinlit cut the individual scales (That is what they are called. I looked it up). This card is done in Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green. The Designer Series Paper is from the new Warmth & Cheer Paper Stack.

You can view the new Holiday Catalog right here!
