Welcome to another Watercooler Challenge. This one is all about Christmas and that left a whole lot of possibilities. What I finally decided on was to make a tag on a card using non-traditional Christmas colours. Why make it easy, right?
If you haven't bought the Lucky Stars embossing folder or the Confetti Stars Punch yet, I suggest you give it serious consideration. They're both so very versatile and fun to use and both are in the Holiday Catalogue which will be retiring January 5th. I'm glad I bought them both because they're an important part of my creation.
I decided to use Naturals White for my base. Then I added a layer of Lost Lagoon and then a layer of Soft Sky which I first embossed using the Lucky Stars embossing folder. See how pretty those embossed stars look!
My next project was the tag which I planned to make to put on the card. I decided to use Hello Honey as my base and then added a layer of Whisper White. No, it doesn't look white, but this is what I did to it before I attached it. I used the Confetti Stars Punch across the top and then used my corner punch to round off the top corners. Then I used my Sponge Dauber and Lost Lagoon ink to colour the Whisper White, making it a very solid colour across the punched out stars and then streaking it in the centre. I sponged in some Hello Honey and Wisteria Wonder where the streaks were to give the illusion of Northern Lights.
Then I ripped two strips of Whisper White, sponged a bit of Soft Sky across the ripped edges, and attached them to the lower portion of the coloured Whisper White to make it appear like snow. I stamped Santa and his reindeer from the Holiday Home stamp set just under the punched out stars using Memento black ink.
I added a house from the Holiday Home stamp set which I cut out using its matching framelit and coloured it before attaching it with Dimensionals. Then I used my Tree punch to cut out a tree from Black cardstock and also attached that with Dimensionals. To dress up the tree, I used my Confetti Stars punch to cut out some Hello Honey stars and glued them onto the tree using Tombo glue.
The rest is just sentiments and ribbons. I love the sheen of the Hello Honey and Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon, don't you?
