October Hop with the Tutorial Bundle Design Team

Hello from New Zealand and welcome to this month’s Blog Hop with the Tutorial Bundle Design Team where I share Christmas cards inspired by the Pohutukawa Tree (The New Zealand Christmas  Tree) and made with the Detailed Leaves Dies!

Tutorial Bundkle Design Team Blog Hop
The team is ready to help you create beautiful handmade projects featuring Stampin’ Up! products. We have a Tutorial Bundle and a Blog Hop for you.

The Tutorial Bundle  

Our Design team has created a bundle of 12 tutorials using Stampin’ Up! products. 
This month the bundle contains tutorials for traditional style cards, 3D packaging, fancy fold cards, and paper crafting techniques! It’s full of fabulous projects featuring lots of product from the new Holiday Catalogue EXCITING!!! you don’t want to miss out on.
Here’s a Sneak Peak of what you will receive in the bundle.
The Tutorial Bundles are based on currently available supplies from Stampin’ Up! and will have both metric and imperial (inches) measurements. So no matter where you live in the world, you can purchase these tutorials and use them to create great projects!
You can purchase the Tutorial Bundle is $NZ20 – or place an order over $NZ50 this month with me to receive this month’s tutorial for free. See the details at the end of the post to find out how you can get this exclusive bundle of tutorials.

The Tutorial Bundle Design Team Blog Hop

To celebrate the release of the October Bundle, the Design Team is holding a Blog Hop.
Remember, these Blog Hop projects are not the same projects as in our tutorial, as the projects in the Tutorial Bundle are exclusive and not shown anywhere else.
I have two cards to share today – both using the same framelits and technique as my card you’ll find in the tutorial.
Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies
But rather than being in neutral shades – these two were inspired by our beautiful Pohutukawa Tree – “The New Zealand Christmas Tree”. 
The reds and greens are perfect for Christmas and one of the framelits in the Detailed Leaves Thinlits Dies reminded me of the shape of the pohutukawa flower.
These photo of my cards were taken in front of one of our pohutukawa trees – not yet in bloom though!
pohutukawa tree inspired cards
The first card is on a Cherry Cobbler based and I have cut the leaf from a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) – the Grey Granite woodgrain from Festive FarmHouse. It is matted onto another piece of DSP – the Tranquil Tide spots from Joyous Noel – which has a detailed edge from the border die in the Detailed Leaves Thinlits. I’ve carried that edged through to the inside of the card and onto the envelope too.
You can see in this close up that the bow is made from lots of crinkly strands. This is from one of Stampin’ Up! Ribbons – the Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ double-Stitched Ribbon
To get the strands – cut your ribbon and then loosen the individual threads from the edge. You’ll end up with lots of cool strands you can use on your projects. I love deconstructing ribbons to get extra texture options.
Here’s the second colour-way of my Pohutukawa Tree inspired cards. 
This card is on a Tranquil Tide base, with the leaf cut from the same Grey Granite woodgrain. It is matted onto another piece of DSP – the Merry Merlot poinsettia pattern from Joyous Noel. I’ve kept all the detailing the same as in the first card above. This time the threads come from the Tranquil Tide 3/8″ mini Ruffled Ribbon.
Pohutukawa Inspired Cards
The texture is slightly different from with the Cherry Cobbler ribbon. It is always a surprise to find out what exactly you are going to get when you first deconstruct a ribbon – it varies!
Here they are side by side! 
The greeting is from the stunning Timeless Tidings stamp set. I’ve used my Stampin’ Write Markers directly on the stamp to get the different colours.
Don’t overlook this set just because it co-ordinates with the Timeless Tidings Project Kit. The kit is fabulous and the set is perfect for making the cards in the kit – but the sentiments in the set are some of my favourites in the Holiday Catalogue.
Timeless Tidings
 Definitely a set you will want to add to your Christmas crafting collection!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my Blog Hop Project this month. Here’s a Sneak peek of my tutorial project which contains all the details on how to make an elegant neutral card.

    Thanks Sherlie! I really like the negative space left by a die cut and like using those in my projects whenever I can.

    Beautiful card, love how you shadowed the die cut layer with die cut. I will have to try this as I hate wasting paper. Thanks you for sharing.

  1. Very pretty collection of cards. I love how you dressed up the envelopes to coordinate with the card!

  2. Great cards Jackie and love the tip with the ribbon!
