I had a fun filled few hours recently getting some Christmas DP
out of hibernation and inky and a bit messy
with pastes and stenciling for a 'new to me'
Christmas Challenge - Christmas Craft Creations
They are asking for Tags or ATC's
for their May Challenge Theme.
As time is running out I decided to go with the 'tag' theme
but would loved to have gone all out with ATC's - another time.
This challenge opens another door of your creativity
with the fun of making something smaller than
our every day cards although you can add them
as an extra layer on your card.
I decided to go with the DP for my first tag
I like making a double tag as it gives you more impact
with designer papers.
I used Echo Park I Love Christmas to cut out
my Sizzix Fancy Tags.
The hardest part was the placing of
Tim's Holiday Greens. in various colours.
Some were heat embossed with
Zing Brown Sugar and Ranger Red Cinnabar.
So thankful I have Glad Press & Seal
to hold them all in place while I glued them down.
This is where I made a mistake as I meant to add them to the
back frame with the Christmas Music - oops!
It worked out well as I decided to have a shadow effect
on my ARTplorations Jingle Bells die.
The front one was cut from the same music paper
and inked with Tim's Frayed Burlap as is the back tag.
This helped to show off the die nicely.
Added some ribbon and mini bells to finish.
I have another few in the making
(one with the pastes and stenciling)
and hope to get that one finished
and show it off in the next few days.
Also found another new Christmas Challenge
It's a Red and Green Challenge
That's Christmas for now - till the next one
Thanks for coming by.
