I'm thrilled to be joining the fun over at Pretty Pink Posh for a special edition of the 10 minutes craft dash!
You have from now until December 15th, to create a fabulous project, and all you have to do is make it in under (or around) 10 minutes, and feature a red element in your project (a no-brainer, so close to Christmas!)
There is a great prize up for grabs: check out Pretty Pink Posh for all of the details.
For my project, I created a set of 3 Christmas tags, using the adorable "no peeking" set by Mama Elephant. The only thing I did ahead of time was to create a slightly larger cut file of the tag image, and set it to cut in my cameo silhouette while I was crafting. I ended up with an entire sheet of white tags that I could layer my quick & easy tags onto...
Stamp the tag images and the little critters, as well as the hole-reinforcer image. Took barely a minute. Then, place masks onto the critters (I ALWAYS create masks when I first receive a stamp set, especially if it involves adorable critter images. I store them with the stamp set for future use. It's part of my before-I-play-with-the-set rituals.)
Once the masks are in place, grab a sponge and some juicy red ink (I used Fresh Ink, but you could use Distress Ink) and start building up the red color. I love that this gave me all kinds of shadows and variations of color. I took my time here - this step took me about 3 minutes.
Now, slowly unmask the images. Perfection! Stamp the "no peeking" sentiment on each tag, color in the scarves, cut each tag out and adhere to the larger white tags. Three holiday tags created in 9 mins, 35 seconds...
Then, with the time run out, make some more tags because this was too much fun:
