You can leave comments through November 17 on all participating blogs. The winners will be chosen and announced on the eP Blog Friday, November 18th.
I decided to work with some of my favorite paper, Fancy Pants Designs Saint Nick, for my projects. I love the graphics in this paper and the colors are quiet.
I suppose I should start with the tag first. I started with a manila shipping tag, Antique Linen and the new seasonal color Iced Spruce Distress Inks. To color the tag, Wrinkle-Free Distress Technique was used on both the front and back. The edges of the tag were sponged with both colors of ink, but I went back again with the Iced Spruce. Can I just tell you that I absolutely LOVE this new color . . . I know I’m going to want a reinker for this one! The trees (part of the paper pad) were glued to another manila tag so the trees would be sturdier when I cut them out.
One of the pages in the paper pad was borders, which is where I found the bottom border for the tag. The edges were sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink then glued to the bottom of the tag with Matte Accents.
Part of the design in the paper were snowflakes, so I die cut some out of another tag with Spellbinders™ S4-340 Create-A-Flake Three. While the snowflakes were still in the dies they were stenciled with Iced Spruce Distress Ink. The larger snowflake (top) was sponged with Antique Linen and the smaller with Tumbled Glass over the stenciling. Matte Accents was added on the sponged areas and then covered with Vintage Glass Glitter.
Now for the ATC.
A manila shipping tag was cut down to 3.5 x 2.5”, then using the same inks and Wrinkle-Free Distress Technique the ATC was colored. Another page from the paper pad was trimmed to fit the ATC, distressed with scissors, then sponged with both colors of ink. The tag is part of another page in this paper pad (you have to love all the little extras you get in Fancy Pants paper pads).
For both the tag and ATC, the seam binding was dyed with Iced Spruce Distress Ink, and both pieces were misted with Ginger Ale Smooch Spritz. Can you see the glimmer on the papers?
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop! Don’t forget to leave comments too . . . looks like a great prize package!
