YouTube Live Crafting REPLAY with Liz – Featuring Whimsical Trees Bundle. Yesterday I shared a couple of cards during my YouTube Live. I hold 2 YouTube Live events each week, one at 11am on Tuesday morning and one at 3pm on Thursday afternoon.
My cards were inspired by this weeks Global Design Project Colour Challenge, #317. These just sparked something in me, so I knew I had to have a go playing with them.
With a certain amount of inevitability, I ended up using the Whimsical Trees Bundle, which quite a few of the Design Team also chose to use. I should add that I didn’t know quite how many until AFTER my Live!
My first card uses the Evergreen Forest as a backdrop. I find that if you spritz your card with water before running it through a 3D Embossing Folder you get a MUCH deeper and clearer result. I layered this onto Basic White and then, before adding it to a Mint Macaron Card Base, I ran a piece of the Blushing Bride Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon across the lower part.
To lift the card a little, I decided to heat emboss three of the trees with Silver Embossing Powder. I added these to the card with Dimensionals, slightly overlapping the ribbon and each other. For a finishing touch, I added three small clusters of Basic Rhinestones. I sometimes think that we forget about the Basic items we have in the catalogue as we fall for all the new glitzy offerings. But, I think our Basic Rhinestones, and Pearls as you will see soon, are anything but basic.
My second card is a CASE of a card I made a while ago, which used Vellum for the Card Base. To see that card you can click HERE. When I say CASEd, I mean almost exactly. I used the same dies and embossing folders, almost the only differences are the colours and the embellishments!
But actually, that is not a problem. If you find a design you really like, why not try it in a few slightly different ways? I think the result of these two versions are quite different. What do you think? Do you prefer one over the other?
Because I wanted to use vellum as a nod to the previous version, I needed to hide the adhesive I used to attach it. This was pretty simple, and is well hidden behind the trees. As you can probably see, I finished this version off with a few Basic Pearls and a fussy cut, heat embossed sentiment.
I have an ordering special for qualifying orders placed between 1st and 3oth November that use the following Host Code:

If your order is over £150 (plus P&P), please don’t use the Hostess Code as you will get to pick your own rewards, but don’t worry, you will still become a VIP Member. But, even better, if your order is even close to £100, please, please DO NOT ORDER!! Please get the Starter Kit and save money on this order and every future order until at least the end of April 2022.
The Starter Kit is ALWAYS the best deal in the Catalogue! But, it just got better!! Until the end of November, the price is reduced from £99/€129 to just £75/€100. How COOL is that?
You still get your choice of ANY products up to the value of £130/€175 AND FREE SHIPPING, you just pay less.
You could add the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss, which is £112, and still have £28 of product to add! All for just £75!!! Or add the Early Release Eden’s Garden Suite Collection, value £77.50 saving you £2.50, and still have £52.50 left to ‘spend’. I could go on, but you get the idea.
This is such a great saving, so why not give the Starter Kit a try?? Just remember that the offer starts on TONIGHT in the UK and Tomorrow in Europe and runs to the end of the month.
