Christmas Bendi Cards from Dreaming Tree

 Odd to Joy bendi card
 Believe bendi card
Silent Night bendi card
envelopes for all the cards

I really love these cards. I tried adding more colors to them this time and not sure if I like the Silent Night one or night. 

All papers are from DCWV the Christmas stack, DCWV Holiday Collection The Christmas Stack, DCWV The Glimmer Stack, real look winter tree, pine tree, snow flake paper and solid cardstock from my stash. I also added some silver holographic paper to the sentiment in the Believe card. I used Crystal Stickles to put sparkle in some places including the snow. I love the Crystal Stickles because they pick up the colors around them.  Pictures do not show it well. I used Christmas Red Stickles on the Black hat's band on the snowman. I inked the edges of somethings and also used ink to color in the deer and.children on Silent Night. I used round brads on the sentiments for Silent Night and Believe cards. I used small round and small star brads on the tree in Ode to Joy card. I used pop dots for dimension on the adults and star on Ode to Joy, Santa's sleigh on Believe and on all sentiments on all cards. The snow on the corns of the windows on Ode to Joy is Liquid Pearls.

Santa's Village Advent Calendar by SVG







Santa's Village Advent Calendar by SVGcuts http://svgcuts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_id=377 looks scary to put together but it really isn't. Mary, of SVGcuts, provides videos of how to put her products together. Here is the link to the instructional video for this project.
http://youtu.be/fwVk-ZsigdE
You can choose your own paper. I used paper from DCWV the Christmas stack, DCWV Holiday Collection The Christmas Stack, DCWV The Glimmer Stack and solid cardstock from stash. I used Xyron 150 permanent adhesive on both of the sides of the numbers. First I put it on the top side (side showing) and dipped each one into Doodlebug Design Inc. Sugar Coating blue Jean glitter. Once that was done I put them through the Xyron again to put adhesive on the back of each number and put them in the appropriate spot on the calendar. You can add any embellishments you want. 
Each numbered door has a compartment in which you can put treats and toys in for loved ones to get each day. The cut file comes with a shopping guide of sizes that you can print and take shopping with you to know what to buy. 
I have considered cutting other files of say elves, nativity, Star Wars, etc to add to this calendar. I hope to make some to sell. Let me know in the comments if you are interested in buying any. 
I can not wait to fill this calendar and start using it (note: I can wait for the cold, snow, and ice.)

Stingy Jack's Halloween Lantern #3








This lantern, Stingy Jack's Halloween Lantern #3, is much like a lamp. 

The paper is black card stock. The colors are printed on vellum. The file comes with orange but you can you a computer program such as Photo Shop (or others) to change its color. OR you could print on plain vellum and use a tea light that changes colors. I inked the edges and random areas on the Black paper of the panels with Silver ink to highlight different areas. 

 He also has YouTube videos to show you how to make his projects.


 Here is the link to order your file. The Dreaming Tree is a young company but is gradually adding more and more files. As I make them, I will share them with you. This is an affiliate link. You don't have to order through this link but if you do, I will get a part of the money for any file(s) you buy to make more things to share with you.

Stingy Jack's Halloween Lantern #1








This lantern, Stingy Jack's Halloween Lantern #1 can be for more than one holiday. The bottom two pictures show a Christmas version next to a Halloween version. I believe Leo at Dreaming Tree has plans for other holidays as well.

There is a free download for the printed Christmas vellum panels.

The cut file is made so the top and bottom are held together with tabs. It also gives you the option to leave one of the panels off so you can easily put in and take out the tea light.

The paper is black, green and grey card stock. The red glittery paper is from Creating Memories. The colors are printed on vellum. The file comes with orange but you can use a computer program such as Photo Shop (or others) to change its color. OR you could print on plain vellum and use a tea light that changes colors. I inked the edges and random areas on the grey paper of the panels with black ink. The red paper is inked with Titanium ink.

 He also has YouTube videos to show you how to make his projects.

You can either set it on a table or the file has a paper hanger to allow you to add string and hang it up.

Stingy Jack's Halloween Lantern # 2 from Dreaming Tree














This lantern, Stingy Jack's Halloween Lantern #2 was fun to make and fun to light up. 

The paper is black card stock. The colors are printed on vellum. The file comes with orange but you can you a computer program such as Photo Shop (or others) to change its color. OR you could print on plain vellum and use a tea light that changes colors. I inked the edges and random areas on the Black paper of the panels with Copper ink so it looks like tarnished metal. Leo recommends http://www.amazon.com/RGB-Submersible-LED-Lights-Centerpiece/dp/B00FS7N0J8/ref=pd_sim_60_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=1MBV20Z27012WFVS45VW&dpID=51eEJ9ihNtL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_ to light his projects up but you can use whatever battery powered light you'd like.

 He also has YouTube videos to show you how to make his projects.

You can either set it on a table or the file has a paper hanger to allow you to add string and hang it up.

I'm All Ears side step card



I love this little Galaxy friend. I love his ears. 
The file has been discontinued since I got it. It can't remember were I got it but here are some alternatives. From MarjorieAnn designs http://marjorieanndesigns.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=204&products_id=1406 and from Little Scraps from Heaven http://www.littlescrapsofheavendesigns.com/item_459/The-Master.htm. The corn ears are from a Cricut cartridge I found by search corn in Design Space. The card base is from the files in Cricut Lover's Guide to Design Space by Narelle Darley. What would we do without her.
The papers I used are plain colored card stock and a pebble/sand real looking paper from my stash. I inked the edges with appropriate colors. I roughly inked the sentiment to kind of look like dirt by using a large distress brown ink from Ranger. I inserted.the text.to the sentiment piece and drew it on it using Design Space. I used an orange fine line Sharpies to make the kernels of corn visible. Thanks for checking this out. Be sure to follow my blog so you don't miss any fun projects.
There are more Galaxy friends found here http://www.littlescrapsofheavendesigns.com/catalog.htm. (I should get a commission...LOL.)
