My real Merriest Tree Blog


   Hello Dreamers! Let's try this with a little more detail and some design elements in it! I wanted to make it home in time to make the blog hop at 3 is 2:55! So forgive me. I am a lot out of practice at keeping a schedule! Summer time is full of fun activities as we are outdoor people. So I have had several camping, kayaking and boating adventures. And some personal issues that took me into a shutdown mode. Girls, when you get there, get help. It makes a world of difference. Doing better and ready to delve into my business again.
    I traveled with my friend Jennifer to Okemas, Michigan last week for Ronda Wade's Creative Convention. I was two and a half days of learning from some great Stampin' UP! demonstrators, meeting new friends, making cards and a great Shoebox swap!  I came home inspired and loaded with 30 cards to show you! 
   This was the swap card that I had created using the Merriest Trees Bundle.  I have a quick tutorial below for you. You can buy all the items that I used for it. from my website  Hope you enjoy.

Cutting Directions 
5 1/2' x 8 1/2"  Parakeet Party Cardstock  Score & fold in half
4"x5 1/4" Sweet Sorbet
4" x 5 1/4" Basic White for inside
small pieces of Basic White, Sweet Sorbet & Parakeet Party

Die cut Sweet Sorbet with the Tiny Christmas Trees DieGlue to card base.
Cut tag from Basic White and Taylor Made Tags.   Glue at a slant to card front.
Use Parakeet Party to die cut out large tree. Stamp with Shaded Spruce Ink. .Glue as shown to tag.
Stamp sentiment on Sweet Sorbet and die cut with tree die. It is a tight fit, so use care. Pop up with       Stampin' Dimensionals, onto larger tree.
Stamp sentiment on inside using Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Pad   Adhere to inside.
Notice how tight a fit this is!

Inside is a little simple. I thought about gluing several of the trees that were punched out from the front.
All of a sudden, that became a lot of work!
Thanks for your patience with me. And for dropping by. I hope you come back to visit often! 

I'm Dreamin' about getting my business running again...You keep Dreamin' too!

Fresh as a Daisy Designer Series Paper Card


Welcome Dreamers and Friends to the Klubhouse. I have been busy creating with new products from our NEW Annual Catalog! It is full of fun stuff!  I have again gathered with my fellow demonstrators from around the globe in The Crafty Collaborations group to bring you a Technique Tuesday Blog Hop.

Our theme is to use  Designer Series Paper (DSP). I made my card using DSP as my focal point. I only  purchased the Fresh As a Daisy paper in my pre-order. Watching my finances, since I am just a bit more than a hobby demonstrator! The stamp set can wait!
 I wanted to use the sweet Bubble Bath cardstock and it picked up color from the floral disc of the daisy. I tried it with the new Moody Mauve cardstock and it became too moody!

I used Basic White Cardstock as my base, cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored and folded at 4-1/4".
Cut Bubble Bath Cardstock 4-1/8" x 5-3/8". Adhere to base.
Cut DSP 3-7/8" x 5-1//8". 
Wrap 10" of Linen Thread around DSP two times and tie in a bow close to right edge, as shown.
Stamp sentiment with Momento Ink. Die cut with Stylish Shapes circle die, keeping words closer to one edge. Use next larger circle die to cut a piece of vellum. Adhere vellum over Linen Thread in center. Pop up sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals and center on vellum. 
I fussy cut the flower from DSP and popped it on the edge of the sentiment.  Scattered some bling & it was done! 
    I hope you enjoyed my card and remember to use your DSP as the focal point of your next project!  I know you have TONS of it!  Now let's hop  over to the next blog. 

I'm Dreamin' of more stamping keep Dreamin' too!
