Stampin’ Up! Quilted Christmas Trees for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday, y’all – and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! We’ve got a fun and Christmas-y sketch to play with today, so be sure to check ’em all out when you get done here!  

Here’s the sketch in question!

I took it pretty literally, and used the Christmas Quilt stamp set and matching Build a Quilt Framelits, added some Wood Textures and Christmas Quilt DSPs and came up with…take a look-see:

This one was pretty easy, with just a touch of fussy cutting of some simple shapes.

I started by building the card front, with a piece of Garden Green paper from the Quilted Christmas DSP Stack, matted on Powder Pink.  Over that, I placed a piece of Wood Textures DSP.  I cut the panel, and then ran it thru the Big Shot with the long straight “dots” die from the Swirly Snowflake Thinlits along the long edge.  I matted it on Powder Pink and Fast Fuse’d it to the card front.

Then I made some Christmas trees!  Here are the trees I made…from left to right.

Tree 1:  I fussy cut a triangle from a piece of Christmas Quilt DSP.  Then I used the little “stitches” die in the Build A Quilt Framelits to add some “stitches”.

Tree 2:  I stamped the dotted triangle image from Quilted Christmas in Real Red on Whisper White and cut it with the die from the Build A Quilt set.  Then I fussy cut the plaid triangle from the DSP stack and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

Tree 3: this is a Stitched Felt Embellishment.  I stamped a little “tree stand” in Real Red and cut it with the matching die.

Tree 4:  Similar to the green plaid tree – just with a different triangle.  And – another “tree stand”.

Tree 5:  Similar to Tree 1.

I layered the trees over the Wood Textures DSP using Liquid Glue for three of them – and then I popped the Stitched Felt Embellishment and the far left tree on with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

My sentiment, from Quilted Christmas, is stamped in Real Red ink on a strip of Powder Pink card stock.  I inked each word separately (started with Christmas) in order to get just those words.  I snipped banner ends on both ends, edged it with my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker and popped it over the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a silver star Metallic Enamel Shape to the Stitched Felt Embellishment tree and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the sentiment and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added two trees to a Whisper White panel.  They both started with Real Red dotted outlines and then I snipped a tree from the Quilted Christmas DSP to adhere in the left tree.  For the second one, I masked the first tree with a sticky note and used the fill-images in Christmas Quilt in Powder Pink and Garden Green to fill it in.  Then I added a “base” in Real Red and Garden Green.

I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Powder Pink mat and into my Garden Green card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Christmas Quilt tree on the front in Real Red, Garden Green and Powder Pink…

…and some more of the Quilted Christmas DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Trees made from Christmas Quilt and Build a Quilt pieces!  Cool!  Pretty versatile little bundle this one is, huh?  Hope you like!
