Week 1 of the month for HIMCR is color challenge, so of course December's 1st week will have Christmas colors! This week's challenge is sponsored by The Paper Shelter and the design team had a selection of colored and b/w digital images plus 2 colored background digital papers to choose from The Paper Shelter. Go to the website and/or the Facebook page to read about the challenge and see what all the design team members created for Week 1 HIMCR #329.
And I can now announce that I'm a new member of the design team!!!! I'm so excited that I made 3 different versions of the b/w image I selected. I even sized the images differently, colored them differently, and even had different sized bases for each one!!! Crazy! But the creative mojo was a rolling and I just went with it. Of the 3, I only submitted #2 and #3 to be shown on the HIMCR #329 blog post.
The #1 creation will be shown at the end of this post, so keep reading to see how each one is a bit similar and dissimilar.
Card 2 was created with these supplies:
*The Paper Shelter image of child shaking gift
*1/2 of red with white snowflake print doily from Christmas House
*red paper scrap
*xoxo self-inking stamper from Jot
*2 gift tags from Christmas House
*white cardstock (8.5" x 11") by Georgia-Pacific
*neon green cardstock (8" x 8") by Astrobrights from Neenah Paper, Inc.
*adhesives (1/2" oval) from Glue Dots
*glue stick from Jot
*from stash: markers, colored pencils, pencil, ruler, and scissors
And this is a close up of the left side:
And a close up of the digital image:
Supplies include a small version of the b/w digital image from The Paper Shelter and these:
*xoxo self-inking stamp from Jot
*deco tape from Jot
*glue stick from Jot
*adhesives 1/2" size from Glue Dots
*Folk Art Decorative Icon stencil from set sold by Plaid
*neon green (folded dimension 4.25" x 5.5") cardstock from Astrobrights by Neenah Papers, Inc.
*olive green cardstock scrap from Colorbok
*butterscotch cardstock scrap from Colorbok
*and the stash supplies of markers, colored pencils, pencil, ruler, scissors
and this is how I did the inside panel:
Did you notice that the deco tape was used in a way to mimic ribbon?
And here is Card #1 that was made first but only making its online appearance on my blog:
This was the first half or focal piece I made in the first stage. I could have left it like this and even framed it but I decided to go large and make it more of a large easel décor:
I wish I had one more pair of holly leaves to add above the others but we will see if I can get back to the store and buy another set of gift tags. I just love the doily! The focal piece also looks like it is part of a large gift package with the use of the decorative tape. And even the Merry Christmas tag has gift packages on it! Did you notice that I cut off 1 package from the image? It was actually a printing error and the bottom half didn't print so I decided to alter and make the image not so wide.
Many of the supplies will be repeats but I will go ahead and list them all:
*b/w digital image from The Paper Shelter colored with marker outlining and shaded with colored pencils
*red with white snowflake print doily by Christmas House
*deco tape by Jot
*stencil lettering and border from the Christ is Lord of Lords Bible journaling set by American Crafts
*green paper by Artist Neon Paper Pad by Grafix
*red paper by Artist Neon Paper Pad by Grafix
*gift tags from Christmas House
*white cardstock by Georgia-Pacific
*adhesives 1/2" ovals by Glue Dots
*glue stick by Jot
*and those dependable stash of supplies: markers, colored pencils, pencil, ruler, scissors
