Forest Tree Stencil Focused Cards with Anja and Marine

Hi everyone, Anja here and today I'm back with a clean and simple Christmas card in pretty pinks using the fabulous Forest Trees Stencils.

I started off with an A2 landscape card base and die cut a white cardstock panel with the stitched rectangle included in the Frilly Frames Quatrefoil Dies set. I also cut out a window using the largest of the Stitched Oval 2 Dies.

Next, I cut down a piece of smooth Bristol cardstock to go behind the window and started applying Distress Oxide Inks through the stencils. I wanted to create an ombré look and went from light to dark pink (Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves). I used all three stencils and one even twice to fill the whole panel. I let it dry before adding white and moonlight ink splatters with a small brush for a bit of snowfall. I adhered the stenciled panel directly to my card base and popped up the oval window frame with foam tape.

For the sentiment, I combined a die cut with a heat embossed text. The word 'merry' is included in the Christmas Garland Frame Die set. I cut it from silver glitter cardstock as well as white cardstock since it is quite delicate. I stamped the word 'Christmas' from the Hedgey Holidays set in VersaMark Ink onto a small cardstock strip and white heat embossed it. To finish off the card, I adhered the sentiment in the middle and added three white star sequins around it.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you have an amazing day!

Hello crafty friends, Marine here, I'm super happy to be back this week with an enchanted shaker card featuring two cute fairies decorating a pink Christmas tree.

As always I stamped a bunch of images using an alcohol marker friendly black ink, I used the coordinating dies to cut them all and before coloring everything using my alcohol markers, I used my memento black pen to give my cute fairies long sleeves, it's winter time and we wouldn't them to get cold.

Here are the stamp sets I used on this card:

Next I moved on to the background and covered a 5,5 x 4,25" bristol panel with spun sugar distress ink. And I used the Forest Trees Stencils to create a pretty forest background using worn lipstick distress ink. And once I was happy with the result, I added some texture to this background: water droplets first, and then I mixed some festive berries distress ink with water to create tiny splatters on the paper and this way bring a little bit more contrast.

I cut some elements to create my window frame. I started by cutting a 5,5 x 4,25"  white panel, and to cut an opening out of this panel, I used the largest die from the Stitched Oval 2 die set. And to give this window panel some texture and interest, I used the Woodgrain embossing folder. I just placed my panel in that folder and I sent it to my die cutting machine.

I attached this woodgrain window panel on a piece of clear acetate, and then attached foam tape at the back of that panel, all around the oval shape and on the four corners as well. I applied a generous amount of powder along the inside edges of the oval foam tape to get rid of any stickiness, and I cleaned up the acetate using a microfiber cloth.

I poured lots of clear sequins directly on the acetate window, and stuck my forest tree panel right on top of the window panel to create and totally close the shaker panel.

And to bring more interest to this window panel and make it even more pretty, I created a frame: I cut a scalloped oval shape using the largest die from the Scalloped Oval Mat 1 die set, and used the largest die from the Stitched Oval 2 die set to cut an opening in that scalloped oval shape and this way create a frame, that I attached on my woodgrain window panel using liquid glue.

I cut a white grass border using a die from the Picket Fence die set, and stamped my sentiment on it, I attached that border at the bottom of my panel using foam squares at both ends, and then I stuck all my cute images using foam squares mostly and also liquid glue. And once everything was attached, I added lots of details and highlights on the images and stuck my panel on a white card base.
