Addicted to Snowmen

A Christmas Tag
Yep, I said it "CHRISTMAS"!  I have been madly working on Christmas stuff for the past few weeks to be ready for some company events I'll be attending.  So, if I get those done now, maybe I'll have time to make some holiday cards for my friends and family.  In the coming weeks I'll be sharing some Holiday goodies.
 
Look...my newest die, TH Winter Wonderland.  Ohhhh Ahhhh... I've only been learning all the Tim Holtz techniques for about a year.  I have been checking out past 12 Tags of Christmas posts and seeing what everyone was doing. 
 

Just had to play and I really do love snowmen.  I used that thick packaging material to emboss.  I cut it into the shape of my tag using the #8 Tag die. Then ran it through my embossing folder.


Pretty...I inked the snowman with Snow Cap dauber then added some Rock Candy crackle.  Once dry I popped a little Pumice Stone Distress ink and Broken China...or was it the Faded Jeans?  Then I stamped this from the new Christmas Cheer set with some glitter.  Cool...


I hand cut with some scrap grunge board these wee holly leaves, then applied some Stickles.


Hole punch and adhere the plastic tag over the snowman tag using brads.  Any will do.  I just happened to have some of these snowflakes left over.


I attached a clip to the ribbon and popped on this fun bell.  Jingle, jingle!


More tags coming to get your holiday crafty juices flowing.  Don't forget to Pin Now and Craft Later button on the top left corner.  Or just keep coming back!

  7. How did I miss this one? I was just going back through the entries and saw this. I'm so sorry to took me so long to visit you to leave a comment! This is absolutely stunning. Your embossed acrylic BG and your colors are fabulous and your snowman is utterly amazing. LOVE how you have decorated him - his hat is delightful. So happy to have you playing along with us this year at the 12 tags challenge!
