Asian (Dandelion) Holiday Tree

Happy belated Christmas.  For the Holidays this year, I decided to make this decor using a Daiso 8" tall Bottle Brush Tree. It already had the snow on the tips which gave it a more realistic feeling.  Lawn Fawn Die Scallop Circle Stackable used for the tree skirt, using a Glittery Green card stock from Craftsmith Holiday Glitter 6x6 Paper Pad. Ten Copic colored Dandelion Images were attached to the tree using a glue gun.  The colorful rhinestones were also adhered to the tree using a glue gun.  Clear Wink of Stella was added to some of the images as well as areas using a Clear Gel pen. Top of the tree is embellished using a 5/8" wide red satin n organdy ribbon tied in a knot, attached using a glue gun.  Here is the front of the tree:
 Here is the back of the tree:
Here are the ten girls that were stamped, Copic colored and trimmed:
This was a fun project. Thanks for stopping by today to visit. Have a crafty day.

Lots of Holiday Gift Cards

The holidays have been a total consuming of time and will bring my blog up to date.
Lots of gift cards were made this year. Used the Lawn Fawn Die: Small Stitched Envelope. Papers used are from my stash - it was a great way to use a bunch of 4 x 7 paper stacks I had for a while.  The Envelope die fit perfectly on to the paper.  All the embellishments used were also from my years of hoarding embellishments. I am glad to have been finally able to utilize some of them for this project. I believe I made 30 gift cards holders even though I really didn't need that many.
 Here are some of the individual gift card examples:

Holiday Starbuck Gift Card Holder

Got inspiration from Kathy - her blog The Daily Marker.  Watch her video here to see how fun it is to make this project. Love the idea of using the festive Starbuck holiday cups to make a gift card. So easy to do. This is a A2 size card. Green and Red card stock from Michael's Recollection paper, made the dash lines using a white gel pen.  Cut the circle using the Die-Namics 1-3/4" 2-1/4" circle die (because a punch won't get in far enough).  I didn't need to use Ranger's Glossy Accents to adhere the cup parts because the cup was new and sticky tape worked. 
Shaker mixture used: seed beads, Iridescent sequins, mini stars, and glitter.
Starbuck Cup cut to 3-1/2" x 4-3/4"
Green card stock cut to 4" x 5-1/4"
Red card stock is cut 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2"
Add Diamond Stickles to the snowflakes on the Starbuck cup. 
Pop the cut sections twice with foam tape for "nice shaking".
Card inside: Starbuck gift card holder is cut 3-1/4" x 4-3/4". The gift card fits nicely into the slanted opening.
