Videopalooza Week with Giveaway, Day 4

Sequin Tree

Sequin Tree

Hi All,

Thanks for returning for my last video of the week! I have been bringing you cards using the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit. You can buy the kit as a one-time purchase or buy a monthly subscription for $5 off.

Today I went for clean and simple. I love, love this white woodgrain cardstock. It has been on my wishlist, so I was happy to see it in the kit! The sequins are small and easily “clumpable” on a shape. I have the tree sitting lower on the card to leave room for the sequins so that it can be mailed without squishing. There’s something about this green cardstock – I love the shade of it.

I used the Suspension Tree Die set – the same one I used on this card. I find that it’s very reusable, especially the circles after the holidays.

Giveaway

Don’t forget to leave a comment to enter a chance to win a $30 egift card to Simon Says Stamp. You may enter once per post, so comment on all four posts to increase your chances! See Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 if you missed them. Good luck!

I hope you enjoyed the videos this week. I will post the winner of the $30 egift card tomorrow!

    Nice card, very simple.. I really like that white wood grain cardstock and the sparkles on the tree.. I would’ve changed out the twine to match too 😉

    Wow Darlene, it always amazes me the patience you show when you pull things apart, just to achieve the desired effect. Like you, I have admired from afar the gorgeous wood grain cardstock from “Simon Says Stamp,” which unfortunately is unavailable to us here in Australia !!. Always love watching your videos, thank you.

    I love the little tree. The glossy accents/sequins effect is so pretty. Will have to try and do something similar, perhaps also with some very chunky glitter I have… Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I have never seen sequins (in scrapping/card making) that small before. They look very nice on that tree. And I, too, have had my eye on that wood grain paper!!

    Love the card, Darlene – but more than that, I love that you just take it all in stride and keep going throughout the video. I probably would’ve started all over again – but you keep it real and that is so refreshing!!

    I would have taken it apart too.. then it would have tore on me, then I would have had to start all over and then I would have change my mind on the design and then go back to that design…. and would have had so much fun through all the process. 🙂

    1000 thank you from the bottom of my heart. I took an online class in hope of being able to mass produce some Christmas cards this year but I did not like any of the ideas. Your last three videos have give me some hope that I will manage the task this year.
