SU Turquoise Trees


I went to a Stampin’ Up Workshop which My friend Oona runs in Arnold, Nottingham. You get loads of materials and can then make extra cards at home. In the true spirit of making life easier for myself as the big day arrives I am aiming to make at least 2 cards a Month. Lisa at Decosse’s Dynamite Doodles runs a 12 Months of Christmas Challenge and you get some lovely digi papers if you link at least 2 cards a month so this is my dangling carrot to give me the extra incentive J

This card uses 2 trees stamped using 2 different designs from the ‘Trees’ Rubber stamp set. The centre one was one of my only successful attempts at lining up the matching punch. I decided y patience was wearing thin and my sanity was more important that a scalloped edge so the rest are cut with scissors LOL

I used a white base with a strip of paper I had leftover. This is matted onto some of the coloured cardstock that was left.

I added a gold bow on the centre tree, some clear gems and a gold peel off sentiment, all from my stash. This is a variation of style on a card I made at the workshop but I never make 2 cards the same so the colours and materials used are different.


Materials Used in this Project are as follows:-

Card size – A6
Stamped Image – Stampin’ Up Trees Rubber Stamps
Paper - Stampin’ Up Winter Frost
Sentiment – Gold Peel off Sticker
Tools – Stampin’ Up Petite Pennants Builder punch
Techniques – Rubber stamping, punching

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical
Order):-

Yes, I'm like you - never make two cards exactly the same . I would get bored! Love these Christmas trees - it looks an intentional design that the middle one is the only one with a scallop. Lovely colour choice too. Well done on keeping up with the Christmas cards. Thanks a lot for joining in with my Festive 48. Marina
