Christmas Tree Swirls 29

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, September 24, 2009 @ 2:42 PM | , , ,

Hi Girls! I have to make this a really quick post because I have to run & pick up my step-kids from school :) I made this Christmas card because I was so excited to receive my new PTI order yesterday from the man in Brown-it felt like Christmas!!!! For my sketch inspiration, I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #36 as well as the Pile It On site, Challenge #16 which is to use punches! I loooove punches :)Hop on over to either sites & see all the amazing inspirational creations they have to share as well as the DT samples! :) Be Sweet!


To make the trees "POP" off the scalloped rectangle, I inked up the PTI Christmas tree image from the Winter Swirls set in SU Always Artichoke, Old Olive & Handsome Hunter (individually of course) then cut them out with a very sharp scissors then adhered them with glue dots.

It is hard to tell unless you click on the image to enlarge it, but the Martha Stewart snowflakes & white rectangle behind the trees, are all embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF. The snowflakes are double layered for a nice FULL look!

Remember tomorrow evening, Friday, September 25th at 8pm EST, you can stop by and see what I have created for the PTI monthly Blog Hop! We were challenged this month to "Go GREEN" & recycle our shipping products that came with our order.

Ingredients Used: Stamps: PTI Winter Swirls, SU Lots of Thoughts Paper: SU Handsome Hunter, Ruby Red, Old Olive, Whisper White, K&Company Peppermint Twist Ink: SU Basic Black, Handsome Hunter, Old Olive, Always Artichoke Sprinkles: Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle & Circle nesties, generic buttons, Offray ribbon, Martha Stewart snowflake punches, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF

Well, I've been following long enough now that when I read your titles, I kind of get an image in my mind. I had a fabulous image of this card even before the pic popped up. Love those trees, swirls, and that snowflake! Fabby colors too. I LOVE your style and can always imagine beautiful creations by you!
Blessings,

Hi Mona.... thanks for the pictures....your class yesterday was really great....has me thinking of where I can set up my sewing machine without having to put it away after I use it... I will keep looking for your classes at Paper Tales... My sister, Helen - at the class with me -- and I are off to Stampaway in Cincinnati on August 1st with several days full of classes and the convention as well... we're really looking forward to it.
