Tree Cards by Design Team members

Morning everyone, the Design Team have been keeping busy.  Here are two more cards to give you ideas on how you can enter our current challenge #5 here (Trees with a bonus entry if paper punches or dies used)

Kerry has created the card above using the cute Christmas Tree shapes from our sponsor CMD Cards.
Don't you love the way that Kerry has added the ribbon to this card.  Check out Kerry's blog for more details on this card.

Cathy has used her Cuttlebug dies to create the trees on this card.  Then decorated them with a variety of bling.  Finished with silver sticker border and sentiment.  Isn't it so elegant.  If you pop over to Cathy's blog you will find more details and another terrific card that will inspire you.

Inspiration and DT Call

Our super efficient team member Annmaree has come up with another card to inspire you for our Challenge #5 - Trees.  Remember you will receive a bonus entry if you add paper punches or dies.  
Annmaree has used a border punch and this wonderful christmas tree punch.

  • No stamps
  • Challenge closes Friday, 2nd December
  • Prize - $10 Gift Certificate from CMD Cards


Yes, we are in search of three new members for our Design Team to start January next year for a six month stint.

Sadly, we will be saying goodbye to Mandy, Kerry and Kaye at the end of our December challenge. They already know that 2012 is going to keep them plenty busy in real life but I am sure they will still find time to visit in the future.  We will miss their wonderful inspiration.

On a positive note though....this now gives you the chance to part of our fun and friendly team.
We will require a creation from you each month to showcase at the start of each challenge. 
If you have the time possibly a second card during the month to keep the inspiration flowing.

What to do to be considered:

Please just add a link of a project that you have posted (current or older) on your blog that will fit our challenge criteria.
Remember, all types of papercrafts and any technique....but NO STAMPS.

Our call will stay open until 12th December.

Inspiration from Stacie

Thanks everyone for all the terrific entries.....and so many of them.
Here is a card from Stacie to keep those design juices flowing.
Stacie has used patterned paper on this card.  Can you believe that stitching is part of the paper.  Doesn't it look so real?
Stacie has fussy cut the skull and added some glitter.
The rhinestone on the cats hat is from our sponsor this month - Pizzazz Aplenty
To find out more details please visit Stacie's blogpost here.
