With Christmas a week away, I feel the need to do at least ONE Christmas post.
I’m experimenting with little techniques for all my Christmas crafts.
1. Lawn Fawn’s Trim The Tree stamp set
2. Versamark Watermark pen
3. Judikins White Embossing Powder
4. Martha Stewart heat gun
I stamped the big tree on the green cardstock, then I fussy cut it out. I really should have used the matching die since I have it. Next time.
I used my watermark pen and “colored” the edges of the tree layers, then I applyed the embossing powder. I melted the powder with my heat gun, and poof! Snowy tree!
A couple of things I would change:
1. Use my embossing buddy to get rid of the embossing powder that stuck to the unwanted places.
2. Maybe get a new watermark pen, I think it’s drying out.
3. Use my matching die!
I didn’t use this particular tree on a card because my daughter loved it so much, she just wanted to hold “christmas” in her hand.. so I gave this one to her. She was so happy, she brought it with her every where she went last night!
I will definitely keep this technique in mind as I continue on with my Christmas crafting..
Tomorrow, I will continue with my birthday cards… next week I will start showing off some of the Christmas crafting I did this week… then we will look into some of the goals I have for this blog and my crafting for 2014.
