Hi everyone! Hope all had a great weekend. They go way to fast, but really, time itself is moving way to fast! Halloween is Thursday, wow! So this week I pumped out to really neat Holiday banners that I donated to Santino's school for their annual Fall Festival for raffling off. One was a Thanksgiving theme the other was for Christmas. For both I used my DCWV stacks, Autumn Melody and Arctic Wishes. I gotta say, I am really happy with how they came, and didn't wanna give the Thanksgiving one after I had hung it on my door for pics!
Here's they are -
I used my cricut of course for the letters and the chipboard, which are tags flipped upside down! I matted the print paper onto solid paper which is glued to the chipboard tags. Lots of Lindy misting, distress inking, stickling and such going on. As you can see, I have this going in a vertical orientation which seems to have been a big hit :)
Now Christmas -
For this I cut the pennants with my cricut out of chipboard, the letters from the Blackletter cart, matted two different papers from the Arctic Wishes stack. The flowers I made by hand after cutting a poinsettia flower from one of the Christmas carts, sprayed them with various Lindy mists, then dipped them in melted Utee, shaped and put some tiny beads in the middle. I added some glossy accents to the end of petals and sprinkled some glitter to look like snow. You can see I made some dangling bead charms, dyed seam binding and tinsel to tie the pennants together. Peace and Joy were cut out of foil blue, misted doilies behind at the bottom. Music pattern paper cut and placed on the top and little sparkly fuzz balls on the point of each pennant bottom. I used my new Sizzix Bigz medallion die from Brenda Walton for the medallions, I love that die! I just got it from the Scrapbook Expo two weeks ago :)
All in all I love them both. Tough for me to choose one. I love the Autumn colors and the up down style, but this Brooklyn Italian girl SO loves glitter and sparkles, so a tough choice :D
Hope you like, see you soon,
