Here’s my take on the Dreaming Tree Poinsettia Planter for my Christmas decor this year. If you like it, please leave some love and share the post link with your friends!
Materials . . .
- Bazzill Bling cardstock in Diamond and Glass Slipper
- Anna Griffin embossing folder set: Christmas Holly Damask
- from Creative Expressions: Pearl Lustre Gilding Polish
- from Ranger/Tim Holtz: Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint and Brick distressing inks
Steps . . .
- Create the pot base according to the Dreaming Tree file instructions using the Glass Slipper Bazzill cardstock
- Distress pot edges with Vintage Photo distressing ink.
- Cut the panels from the Diamond Bazzill cardstock and emboss them. Use the main folder for the bottom panels and the border folder for the top panels.
- Cover each of the panels with the gilding paste.
- Distress edges of all panels with the Vintage Photo distressing ink and rub just a tad on some of the other raised areas but not the leaves or berries.
- With a Q-Tip apply the green and red distressing inks to the leaves and berries raised areas on all panels.
- Apply finished panels with glue or score tape.
Next the flowers . . .
- Cut two flowers from the Diamond Bazzill cardstock and one from the Glass Slipper cardstock.
- Ink edges and center slightly with the Peeled Paint distressing ink.
- Use a glitter glue to create freehand lines on the flowers
Set the flowers aside to dry while you work on the leaves. Be sure and watch the video below where Leo shows how to make the leaves, stems and stamins. For myself, I’ve used a green sharpie to simply draw the lines on the leaves. I’ve also distressed the leaf edges with Vintage Photo distressing inks.
- Paper – Forest Green pearl paper from Cricut
Now shape your flowers and leaves and put everything together according to the video below . . .
Hope you enjoyed all my tips and finishing ideas for an alternate version of this darling planter by Dreaming Tree!
