Oh Christmas tree, Oh Christmas tree

Good Friday morning.  Splitcoaststampers is holding a special “Falliday Fest” event around the fall and winter holiday crafting season and I was invited to do a Christmas Tree video and step by step tutorial.  I hope you don’t mind me sharing Christmas Tree projects that I made over the last couple of years.  Funny thing….there are kitty cats in everyone of them.  LOL!  If these  projects are new to you feel free to click on the link above each picture to go back to the original blog post.

I hope you may be inspired to try making a special Christmas Tree project of your own.   I’ve linked several branch dies and a punch that you could use to create a tree.  You can see the dies and supplies for each project on their individual blog post.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.

  1. I don’t remember a video from you before, Kittie, and I was very excited to watch it! I love all of these beautiful cards and I would love to try the dimensional tree – I don’t have the MS punch but I’m putting it on my wish list now! As for the kitties, they make the cards even more special! I’m a big fan of your cards, especially the scenes you’ve made – I don’t always comment but I’m always looking! Thanks so much for the video and for sharing your creativity!

  2. Me again… I have a question. You mentioned you punch through waxed paper and tinfoil to ensure it punches properly – do you punch the waxed paper and tinfoil together at the same time, or each one separately? I have some punches that could use some help. Thanks!

  3. I’m glad you asked this question as I should have remembered to mention it on the video. I cut a piece of foil about five inches wide and fold it in half and then fold again to make several layers of foil and then press it down really flat so it will run through the punch without snagging. I punch all along the full length of the folded. Don’t worry…the foil is so light it won’t clog up the punch. The foil sharpens the blade of the punch.
    Next I cut a piece of waxed paper about 5 inches wide and fold over a couple times and flatten. I run the folded paper through the punch and punch all the way across the length of the paper. The waxed paper waxes the sharpened and makes cutting more easily.
    I hope that makes sense. And thank you for you lovely comments. I appreciate it so much.

  4. Good afternoon,Kittie I am a little late today, I love these Christmas trees. they are so warm and fill your heart with the Christmas love of family.
    Thank you so much for the tutorials and the information on sharpening punches. I had forgotten and need to do that….hugs

  5. This is a wonderful post. It is amazing how the scenes are so different yet, the same. I LOVE these scenes so much because they remind me of children’s Christmas books which are so magical and happy. In case anyone is interested I found the Elegant Staircase on line at 123Stitch.com. I ordered mine. Kittie, TFS, so much so freely.

  6. Thank you, Kittie! I will give this a try with my dull punches. I appreciate the detail on how to do this. I’m sure I’ve read before that crafters used this method but I could never figure out how they did it – thank you very much!
