Triangles and Trees

penns_hopWelcome to the Pennsationals team blog hop. As a team, we’ve started to do a monthly blog hop with a different theme each time. This month is a colour challenge.

penns_hop_colourchallenge#1We can create any type of project using Island Indigo, Blackberry Bliss and either gold or silver. I love these colours so I was looking forward to the challenge! We can also use Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Kraft/Crumb Cake and Basic Black as neutrals to complement the main colours.

My inspiration came from an unlikely place this month. I’ve been seeing Jamberry Nails designs everywhere since they launched in Australia a couple of weeks ago. One of their designs is a very geometric design with a splash of silver, so I went about recreating that look, but with our colours, into a Christmas card.

It’s loud and proud and I love it!

I used the Tree Punch to punch out the triangles and just cut off the trunk. To create the negative space tree, I simply reversed the process and cut a trunk out of the base of one triangle. I adhered all the triangles to a piece of scrap paper and got the background right before I sewed around the edges and tree.

The sentiment is from the Happy Scenes stamp set. I also used an adorable wooden Snowflake Element, Silver Cording Trim and sequins to finish it off.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my project. The next step on the hop is the very lovely Emma of Vintage Graffiti.
