Christmas Project 2

A Mixed Bunch Christmas Tree

You will need:

Blossom Punch , Mixed Bunch Stamp Set, Gumball Green CS and Ink, glue gun,  a Paper Cone and scissors.

I used a paper cone because the Styrofoam melts with the glue gun and its just messy and could get out of shape.  I used 2 1/2 pieces of CS and started stamping the blossom with the 4 strands of petals with the dots.  After punching them out I cut 2 petals at a time with some single ones and started gluing round and round, up the cone.  With only one glue gun burn, I did well……LOL! when I got to the top I cut only 2 petals out and glued one on top of another to end with 3 as a mini cone, then glued it on top!

tips: I held each petal a few seconds to keep it in place.  As I went around the cone I also filled in with single petals so it would look fuller with no gaps and seeing the cone behind it.  I also took the ink pad and smeared in over the cone so you would not see brown behind it.

I like how this came out, for now.  I’m still not sure if I “dress” it up with some bling.

Christmas Mosaic Madness

merry christmas 1

When I saw the new Mosaic Madness stamp set I wanted to design a card with a Christmas related theme.  I really love how this came out, those super cute mosaic stamped and punched ornaments adhered  with Stampin
Dimensionals really give them a pop!
