Twinkle Trees - Non traditional Colors Card

This is a fun card - it was actually a collaboration between my friend, Tonya, and I.  I had an idea in my head - sort of explained it to her and she went to town!  It turned out lovely.  It is fairly quick - but very easy.  Of course when I decided to use it for my swaps for an upcoming event this weekend with Stampin Up! (On Stage in Atlanta) - I didn't account for the glitter accent and running so many of them thru the Big Shot.  However - if I was able to create that many for swaps in an evening - it will be a breeze for your Christmas cards.

This set - Twinkle Trees - will be one you reach for year round!  Other than the Christmas tree (which really in other colors wouldn't even have to be Christmas) - the bokeh accents are just lovely.  There are all kinds of bokeh techniques on the internet, but if you have these stamps - just stamp it!  No technique is necessary.

I have included a card with just the backgrounds on a design with the Halloween Cookie Cutters.

I hope you notice little things I do in my videos that can help you in your stamping.  In this one you will see that to attach the sequins - add the drops of your glue, then ever so slightly stick your tool in the glue.  This will 'grab' your sequins from the container and allow you to easily stick them to your card!

We made this card at camp - it was white on white.  I did change it up for my swaps and used the new In Color Sweet Sugarplum as the background.  The color is very strong, so stamp off once before stamping onto your card.  The other change up from our camp card is I colored the tree in with clear Stella - because frankly I don't see a reason to ever make a card without that Stella sparkle!

If you will be in Atlanta - maybe you will get one of these from me!
