LNS Challenge

I am excited to let you know that the LNS Challenge group has a new blog! You can find the link for the new challenge blog HERE! You can now load your challenge projects directly onto this blog instead of through Yahoo.

This week's challenge is to create a project using snowflakes. Below are two projects I created for this challenge. The first project is a card using the new Honeycomb EF from the new spring catalog. I love the texture this new embossing folders creates! I embossed some designer papers using this folder, cut them out and layered them on the honeycombs. The snowflakes were made using the Snow Flurry die, glimmer paper and DSP. Below is a list of items I used for this project.

Stamp Sets: Pennant Parade (saying)
Inks: Cherry Cobbler
Papers: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Be of Good Cheer DSP, Silver Glimmer Paper
Accessories: Big Shot, Honeycomb EF, Snow Flurry Die, Glimmer Brad, Little Labels Punch Pack, Paper Piercing Tool, Scissors, Dimensionals

I have been seeing these cute gift tags made into the shape of a coffee holder and thought it would make a cute project for this challenge as well.  The mug was pretty easy to make - you cut a piece of c/s 2-1/2" x 6-1/2 and score it at 3-1/4".  You then open up the tag and the cut an angle off 1/2" from the fold.  The belly band is 1" x 3", the top of the mug is 1" x 2-3/4" and I then used a corner round of the top edges.

Stamps: None
Inks: None
Papers: Very Vanilla, Be of Good Cheer DSP, Silver Glimmer Paper, Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Big Shot, Northern Flurry Folder, Snow Flurry Die, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Glimmer Brad, Gumball Green Ribbon, Brad, CAD, Dimensionals, Dimensionals

I love your embossed coffee cup Eileen!! The way you have the ribbon sticking out the side looks great too - kind of like a straw. Awesome project!!

I love the coffee cup tag. This would be a great way to package a coffee gift card. Thanks for the directions.
