I finally found some time to play with my new sets. Aimes issued the challenge this week to "use a negative (empty aperture) space in a creative way." I thought of using On Ice and this is what I made.
I die cut the skate and filled it with snowflake sprinkle candies. I collect all types of these toppings for when our grandchildren visit. It's an ongoing surprise - what sort of sprinkles I've found for their ice cream or cupcakes. I die cut through both layers and attached the treat bag inside so it can easily be removed. This card is 5x6.5 inches. The patterned paper and tag are from K&Company. Score tape around the outer edges with MS glitter. Snowflakes cut from DCWV Glittered Winter Mat Stack with Cuttlebug Snowflakes #2 die. The ribbon is Hug Snug dyed with Copic Various Ink R29 - Lipstick Red . The jingle bell is from my embellishment stash.
When I was cleaning up, I found I had two die cut skates from the cut out and decided to use one of them for Rhonda's Challenge #16 - "make a tag with an emphasis on sentiments."
The pink patterned paper was a scrap from K&Company Peppermint Twist pad and had pastel colored snowflakes. I stamped, colored and adhered the On Ice image creating a pocket for the glittered pine and berries. ( I hang some old skates on my old sled every year and fill them with Winterberry and pine.) It just followed to add them here. The sentiments "Let it snow" and "Frosty Fun" are from the same set and stamped in Scarlet Jewel and Aqua Mist. The "to & from" is from 2009 Holiday Tag Collection. The wrap of Bakers Twine hides the fact the the tag is pieced from two scraps.
One cut - two projects. I hope you liked them. I'm trying to catch up and hope to fill in the others that I missed very soon. Thanks for all your fun challenges, Peeps!
Thanks for dropping by.
