In The Woods

Hello Everyone welcome to my blog.  Today my post is something a little different. Instead of making a card I decided to make something  decorative and use some of Susan's CountryScapes die sets.  The first picture is shown without the glass dome so it is easier to see. This is a picture with the glass dome over it photo is not great but it was very hard to photograph due to the glare on the glass. Here is how it was constructed Cut 30 - 36 trees (I cut just the top 3-3-1/2" of tree) from green cardstock using Susan's CountryScapes Holiday Evergreens & Trimmings die set.  Fold up all the branches on each tree add Kid's Choice Glue to the back of tree adhere to tooth pick.  add 3 trees to each tooth pick which gives you a dimensional tree.   You should have 10-12 dimensional trees when done. Cut 4 deer using light brown cardstock and deer die from Susan's CountryScapes Critters 3 -   2 of the deer should but cut from brown cardstock that has Clear Double Sid

Hello Everyone thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Today I have created kind of a fun card that has Santa and his satchel going head first down the chimney.  My card base was made by using Karen Burniston's Flower Pot Pop Stand Die Set. Here is how it was done  Cut flower pot from light gray cardstock you will need to cut it twice.  Find your score lines and fold all of them (this is important to do before embossing as it will make it easier to find them after embossing - ask me how I know ).  Depending on how big your brick embossing folder is you may be able to do both at once  but lay the flat pieces in the embossing folder and run through machine.  Try to have a couple of sides straight as possible and use these sides for front of card (Again ask me how I know).  Take cranberry ink pad and rub over the bricks which will color the bricks but leave mortar area gray.  Use Karen's great video to build the flower pot.  For this card you can either cut the top flaps off or g

Congratulations Tiger

Hi there thanks for stopping by today!  Recently I had a request to make a card in celebration of an induction into a sports "Hall of Fame" at our local high school.  This is the card I came up with.  Our school mascot is a tiger and our colors are red and white.  To make this card I used Karen Burniston's Accordion Circle Die, Square with Circle Frame Edges die and Sport Charms Dies (these dies are found at Elizabeth Craft Designs ).  The tiger was cut from Design Space on my Cricut and then used extra thick clear embossing powered to coat giving it a glossy finish. Happy Scrapping! Christine
