Photo Tutorial for Different Size Trees with Tree Punch

I've had some requests for directions on how to make the different size trees on this card, so I put together a photo tutorial on how I did it.

I made this card for a Pals Paper Arts Challenge and it was a PPA Pick!  Woo Hoo!

You create the different size trees using the same Tree Punch!

  1. Stamp the tree images and punch them out.
  2.  Put small amount of adhesive on the back of the tree image and temporarily adhere it to a piece of copy paper.

3.  Line up the punch and punch a smaller size tree.


It’s that easy!

Now, aren’t you ready to create some trees of your own?  You can stamp images and punch them out or even just punch out trees from designer series paper.  You can make a forest of trees from the DSP trees for another wonderful card.  

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Stamping!

Wondrous Wreath is Wonderful!

Here are 2 wonderful cards made by my upline Lisa Pretto using the Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set  and coordinating Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies.  She had these cards on display at her Holiday Stamp Camp and was gracious enough to allow me to take photos to post on my blog.  A big thanks to her.

I'm sorry the photos aren't better but I do not have a light box and when I used Lisa's, I was unable to adjust my camera settings properly.

Believe it or not, not all demonstrators have every product that is released!  sad So it is nice to be able to feature cards using products that I don't own myself.  I've seen some wonderful cards made with the Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set and coordinating Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies.  The wreath is beautiful stamped in fall colors too!

Save 15% when you purchase the both products as a bundle.  Use product # 137624 when you place your on-line order here.
