CSAYL - Vellum Challenge

Did you realize that we are more than half way to Christmas already???  Doesn't really seem possible, does it?  Time just flies.  Get a jump start on your Christmas projects and come play along with us over at the CSAYL blog!

This weeks challenge is Vellum.  Vellum is awesome for Christmas projects!  The whiter vellum papers go perfectly with all of those snowy/wintry scenes. This week I have made a tag for my challenge project.


I started out with a piece of patterned paper that I cut using my Nestabilities Labels 22 (Spellbinders) die.  I cut a strip of vellum to go across the middle.  The bottom edge is ripped, just to make it look a little more interesting.  "Ho, Ho, Ho" (Hero Arts) is stamped directly on the vellum. 

 For the tree image (Lawn Fawn), I stamped it on two different patterned papers (Echo Park), trimmed them out, then pieced them back together.  The very top and left side actually hang over the edge of the tag.

Now, I love Lawn Fawn, so I am very happy to finally get to play along with a Lawnscaping challenge again, too!  The current challenge is...


One of my favorite ways to add dimension is with Liquid Applique!  I added some white Liquid Applique along the edges of the tree, and under the stump to give it a cool, snowy effect.  Just hit it with your heat gun and watch it puff right up off the paper.  So cool.

Now it is your turn.  Go dig that vellum out of your stash, or go add some to your collection!  Be sure to visit the CSAYL challenge blog and link to your project for a chance to win this weeks prize!

Thanks for stopping by,

Michelle
