Tree Trimmings

Last night I started playing properly with the new SU Tree Trimmings stamp set, the coordinating paper set & all new Fine Galaxy glitters. Despite having a shower since then I'm still really "sparkly" today.

I've seen similar cards to this on several blogs recently & I was so taken by the design that I had to have a go myself.
Stamps: Tree Trimmings, Autumn Days, Old Fashioned Christmas
Inks: Real Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Card: Old Olive, Very Vanilla
Misc.: Fine Galaxy & Dazzling Diamond glitters

On this card I stamped the bauble on the new SU window sheets. I used versamark ink & heat & stick to get the red glitter to stick before using a glue pen to apply the champagne colour glitter, which by the way is a fab colour, to the remaining areas. Interestingly the thinner window sheet did not warp at all when heated but with the thicker stuff I had to be a bit more cautious. And a word of warning remember to remove the blue cover from both sides of the thicker window sheet prior to heating it or it will never come - Here speaks the voice of experience.

I also found the sheets can go through my SU punches so although I generally do not show the inside of my cards, I think punching the sheets improves the look inside & could easily be left as it is.

Stamps:Tree trimmings, So Swirly Wheel

Inks: Versamark, Black Stazon, Chocolate Chip

Misc: Christmas Jingle, Galaxy Glitter set, 2 way glue pen, Heat & Stick powder

My final card is very simple affair, but this time I used clear embossing on the bauble images. I also used crystal effects on the sentiment topper & to get the scallop around the outside as we do not have a larger scallop punch, I punched out 2 scallops from chocolate chip & overlapped them on the back of the sentiment scallop & although they do not fit exactly I don't think they look too bad.

Stamps: Tree Trimmings, Occasional Greetings

Inks: Real Red, Old Olive, Versamark

Card: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Very Vanilla

Misc: Crystal Effects, Scallop Punch, Christmas Jingle paper
