Trim Tree
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the Poppystamps Holiday 2016 Blog Blitz! We hope you have been playing along with us all week long, and seeing all the great inspiration and ideas from our design team as we share with you our favorite stamps and dies from our latest release! Today, I've got a bright autumn card made with the new Trim Tree!


This branching tree is gorgeous! There is so much wonderful detail on the tiny branches and twigs. Imagine how this tree is going to look in a winter snow scene or as an Easter tree with tiny eggs! Today I went with bright and beautiful autumn.

I started by painting a background panel with watercolor, then cutting out nine tiny squares and arranging them in a simple grid pattern. I added the Trim Tree, then cut fiery red-orange maple leaves from the Leafy Breeze die. This combo works so well together that you'll want to put them both on your wish list at the same time! Then I added the colorful Sly Fox! This card reminds me why Autumn is my favorite season for card making!

Hey Michele! What a fresh and fabulous creation in fall colors! Love the cute fox with a beautiful trim tree and your watercolored scraps BG is always amazing! Love it!

I'd love to win that super Trim Tree die!

The trim tree is perfect for making fall cards! I love your color selection - it is so 'fall'

FABULOUS card Michele!!!
WOW - I LOVE the DELICATE branches of your tree, LOVE your scene with the CUTE fox and PRETTY stitched panels too!!!
THANK YOU for sharing :)

This is so charming and makes me wish fall was already here. Love your talent. :)

przepiękna jesienna kartka :) Podoba mi się bardzo lisek i rozgałęzione drzewo na tle kartki:)

I love this little fox!! So cute! Thanks for sharing!

What a beautiful scene! I love the background and how the tree stands out!

Awww, that fox is so cute and I love this big beautiful tree. Hugz

Love that tree and all the ideas you have for it and the sweet little leaves, not that we have many maple in the UK but they look a little like sycamore leaves too. That fox is super cute and what fab male cards he could be used for, thanks for sharing.

Love this card and all the new dies, makes me wish Fall was here.

Michele , this look awesome! Love that fox and the beautiful squares! Yay for fall!

A great card you made Michelle, a fantastic watercolor background that really adds to your card. The new tee and leafy breeze dies are great!

Love this fall card design and the cute fox.

This is beautiful, Michele! I love the fox and your gorgeous watercolour grid background! The tree and leaves are awesome and I love seeing these fall colours!

What a wonderful card !
I like your watercolor background ! The tree trim die is so elegant and works perfectly with the leafy breeze die. The fox is really cute, too !

Lovely Autumn colours, cute fox : )

Lovely card...and wonderful die with lots of possibilities!

Gorgeous tree...love that sweet wee fox!

I love foxes... I've see one from time to time when going out at night with my dogs (I leave in town, so it's not the best place for him, or her as a matter of fact : I did not see it close enough to find out !
Your card is gorgeous, your did a fabulous combination of all these dies.

Fabulous fall card! Love the tree die!

LOVE that Trim Tree and the Sly Fox! Awesome fall card! Love the layering and fall colors!

Hi Michele, I love your watercolour 'tile' background, and the stitched squares look lovely, the trim tree is lovely and 'full' and can be used for all 'seasons', and Mr Fox finishes this card off beautifully. I love this !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

The tree is gorgeous, but the fox is stinkin' cute. Great card.

Once again Michele, you have pulled me out of my literal ways! That nine square background is the PERFECT foil for the detailed tree limbs, and that fabulous little fox. I will try a background like this soon and see if I can shake up my stodgy ways. Thank you for your inspiration.
