Events …. I love events. I love watching everyone get together as friends to enjoy their hobbies, their passions. At a scrapbooking/papercrafting event the sharing of ideas is amazing. From the moment they unpack their tools and toys, sit down and begin creating the sharing begins. Everyone learns from each other and then there is the classes, the demos, the make’n takes that you can participate in to further the creative experience of the event at the Winnipeg, “Scrapchicks” gone wild event, I taught two classes and did a make’n take in the booth where I taught a fun background technique and they created a Christmas tag using that technique. As I teach, I create with them so I ended up with a “pile” of tags for myself.Christmas Tags featuring Clearsnap Sunset Petal Point | Designed by Cathie Allan | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #tags #stamping #christmas #scrapbookingOnce they came home some of them became cards by creating another very cool background on a 6X6 piece of Super Stock on which I attached one of the tags I created at the event.Christmas Card featuring Clearsnap Petal Point ink collection | Designed by Cathie Allan | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine #cards #christmas #stamping #cardmakingFor your “blog pleasure I am going to step out the background for the 6X6 background. This background is loaded with shimmer because …. here comes Christmas and Christmas is a great time to “get your shimmer on”!

THE BACKGROUND
1. Set up your Cathie Allan, Position-it2 for a cling stamp image.

This tool embraces wood stamps, clear stamps and cling. Using tape and paper masks, stamp each stripe of this awesome “candy cane” like image from Impression Obsession.

Step One

2. Slide a piece of non-stick, heat resistant, crafting sheet under your project (I had only taped on the left and bottom of my Super Stock) and iron with a hot dry iron in short bursts. The base is heat resistant but I am careful to be gentle with it … that iron is hot. Place a piece of scrap paper or a piece of paper towel between the iron and the project to keep your iron clean.

Step Two

3. Cut a circle as shown and place your circle “mask” on the project as shown. Using the “chianti” section apply color with your stylus and white foam tip reserved for dark red pigment ink. Apply the color from the mask, out.

Step Five

6. Remove your project from the board and iron again.
7.  Lay a strip of 3mm “Be Creative” tape just under an olive green stripe. Do this on both sides. Using your favourite, sparkly fibre (mine is WonderFil’s, dazzle) and wrap, completely covering the tape to create a very sparkly, fibre ribbon.

Step Six

8.  Lay a strip of 5mm, “Be Creative” tape as shown, above the green stripe and after removing the backing, sprinkle with Clearsnap’s, Twinkle Dust, Sugar Shimmer. Burnish the glitter with a clean finger.
