Merry Christmas….

One of our Technique Classes for November was to use “Washi Tape“.  I will be the first to admit that I was not keen on using this Tape as I have never really been able to get into what all the hype was all about. 

Knowing some of the ladies had played with the Tape previously & comments like “Don’t know what everyone is raving about“, “Nope, not me”, “Don’t know what to do with it other than stick it on a corner”, etc.  You get the idea.  I decided to jump out of my comfort zone & play with some!  Well, what a mistake on my behalf – I am hooked.  I can now understand all the hype!

I think I’ve convinced everyone that it is a great little product & the result can create a very different look!

Since this photo was taken, I’ve added a little bit of bling to the centre of the present & to the bow at the top.

    Our new challenge is up & running over at Sunny Challenges & Creations

     
    All you have to do is share something that you have created for the Christmas Season.  Maybe you have created your own decorations, table settings, boxes, banner, scrapbook page, etc. 
     
    For my first sample, I decided to do a couple of scrapbook pages ready in time for Christmas Day. I am really happy with how they turned out.  Today is Page 1 of the pages which will fit a 5″ x 7″ photo with a small white border.
     
    Supplies –
    Stamp Set – Morning Post Numbers
    Ink – Crumb Cake
    Cardstock – Whisper White, Textured Old Olive
    DSP – Season of Style
    Ribbon – 1″ Stitched Edge Grosgrain – Cherry Cobbler
    Washi Tape – Season of Style
    Accessories – Snail Adhesive, Paper Piercing Mat & Tool
     
    I cut 2 strips of DSP into 2″ wide x 11″ while the 3rd strip was 2″ x 12″ & adhered them to the RHS of the Old Olive Textured CS.  I just love Textured CS for scrapbooking!
     
    A 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS was adhered over the strips of DSP.  I stamped “2013” onto a piece of Whisper White CS 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ using Crumb Cake Ink.  Prior to adhering to the page, a “V” was cut from one end.
     
    With my Paper Piercing Mat & Tool I pierced a double layer around the Whisper White Mat.  A bow was tied from the Cherry Cobbler Ribbon & the adhered to the RHS of the year.
     
    I then adhered a couple of strips of Washi Tape to the top LHS of the page.  I also placed a piece of Whisper White, cut into a banner for a little bit of journaling.
     
    All in all a very simple page, but one that represents Christmas!
     

    We know everyone is busy at this time of the year, so we have extended this challenge out to the new year, which means you have lots of extra time to play along.  We would love for you to link your creation or creations with us.  All you have to do is post it on line & then link back to Mr Linky.
     
    Until next time, Happy Stampin’!

    I am a little late in posting my challenge sample for the current challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations.  Been having a little trouble with Blogger.

    It was Kris’ turn to give us our challenge & this week all we had to do was use that great new fantastic product – Washi Tape somewhere on our card!

    I decided to try something different this week & created a set of 6 invitations using Washi Tape BUT also using MDS as well as normal ink & card.

    I have actually cased this from the current Catalogue, Page 11.  I did change it a little to suit what I wanted.  It could easily be created using the actual Stamp Sets, which I have but decided to go with MDS for a change.

    Stamp Set – 134850 – MDS Cycle Celebration Stamp Brush Set
                       133019 – MDS Make a Wish Stamp Brush Set
