Quick and Cute Challenge!

In a flurry of a hurry? This month the Dream Team are all about the Quick and Cute...whether that be cards, gifts, wrapping, or tags...we have sleigh-loads of ideas! Play along by posting your creations using the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog, for a chance to win the stencil of your choice, and a possible bonus stencil for using Dreamweaver products in your Quick and Cute project! Here's what fun I've been up to this week:

Pine cones embossing folder - FG675, Merry Christmas stencil - LS92
FG675, LS92, LS25, Distress Inks - forest moss & gathered twigs,
Wendy Vecchi's Red Geranium Archival Ink, scraps of decorative paper, jingle bells
  Easy steps:

  • Put the top part of the tag in the embossing folder and run it through your die cut machine
  • Use foam applicators to lightly apply color to the pine cones and branch
  • Tape the Merry Christmas stencil near the bottom of the tage
  • Use a stencil brush and ink to add color to the words
  • Rouge more green ink in the background of the tag
  • Apply a small strip of decorative paper above the words (I went through my scrap buckets and found one)
  • Decorate the back too, using the To/From part of LS25
  • Embellish with jingle bells and May Arts ribbon!

The back is as beautiful as the front!
I have LOTS of scraps to choose from!!
I'd love to receive a comment from you before you head on to the rest of the "B" team:

Happy Creating,
