Merry Christmas

I thought I would show you my Christmas trees for my last post before Christmas.

I used pattern paper from the Earthy Paper Pad by Crafty Secrets. I cut a slit from the bottom up on 1 of the tree pieces and I cut a slit from the top down in the other, slid them together to make the tree. I punched 2 stars with the new SU! large star punch that's coming out in the Spring/Summer catty. I cut a slit in each star and slid them together. The ornaments are punched with the SU! 3/4" circle punch. I cut a slit half way in each ornament so they could be slid onto the tree. I added a little Scotch Tacky Glue to the pieces so they would stay together. The small tree is cut from the Crafty Secrets Radiant Paper Pad. I painted Scotch Tacky Glue on the stars and poured on yellow gold & tourmaline Martha Stewart glitter.
Here are the measurements:

Gold Tree - cut 2 triangles 4 5/8" long x 7" on the 2 sides
cut a slit up the middle of 1 triangle 3 1/4"
cut a slit down from the point of the other triangle 3 1/4"
punch 2 stars, cut slits half way up both stars
punch 15 3/4" circles for the ornaments
punch as many as you want, cut slits half way into circles

Pink & Blue Tree - cut 2 triangles 3 1/2" long x 5 1/2" on the 2 sides
cut slits same as above 2 5/8" from bottom & top
punch 2 stars
punch 12 circles

I remember seeing these plaster of Paris Last Supper pictures a l o n g time ago. I found this one at a yard sale last summer for .10. It was in bad shape, it was painted gold and it was chipped and dirty. I cleaned it up and rubbed Ranger Walnut Distress Ink all over it. Then I sprayed it with Antique Brass Glimmer Mist. I wanted to darken it up it places so I put more Walnut ink on it with a sponge dauber to hit the raised areas. Then I sprayed it with a matte sealer. I like the way it looks now, much better than what it was before!
Now that all the hustle & bustle is over we can finally sit back and enjoy our Christmas' with our families and friends. I hope all of you have someone you love to spend Christmas with. I want to thank you for stopping by and leaving comments and just checking on me and I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas.
