Hello! Did we all have a sunny and beautiful weekend? I wish it was like this all year round.
Today I am coming at you as guest designer for Cupcake Craft Challenges for the month of October. Thank you so much for having me, I am very pleased to be here.
The challenge this week is BLACK AND WHITE CHRISTMAS!
For my entry I have decorated a paper bag and then made a matching notebook to pop inside, to make a little Christmas pressie.
Here is the front.
For my papers I used Teresa Collins ~ Christmas Home: Christmas Damask papers, although I used the side with the snowflakes on it!
For the cover of the bag I made a tag using a Black Ranger Craft Tag. I rubbed some Picket Fence ~ Distress Stain over it and ran it through the Snow Flurries Texture Fades embossing folder. I then brayered the raised snowflakes with Fresco Finish ~ Snowflake paint and inked the edges with black ink. I've not done this before and so was quite pleased with the finished tag.
The image is Magnolia ~ Frosty the Snowman with Snowflake which I coloured with copics. This is my 100th Magnolia posting!!
For the front of the notebook, I just used an uncoloured version of the image.
Here is the back:
For the back I have used Magnolia ~ O Frosty the Snowman (text) stamp.
I am going to pop this in at the following challenges:
- embossing/distressing - Card and Scrap
- lots of layers - Paper Sundaes
- try a new technique - Fussy & Fancy (my tag)
- anything goes - ABC Challenge
- tag it - Craft Your Days Away
