Snowy Christmas Tag and 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist in the CLASSroom

Good Sunday Morning. I have a cute snowy Christmas tag to share with you today made using the Essentials by Light Parade stamps and paired with the Home and Hearth die set and Poppystamps Pinpoint Main Street Tags

KC Essentials by Ellen Light Parade 1 center

I stamped one of the three houses and the car on watercolor paper using black versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder and used Zig brush markers to color the images.  I made a big boo boo coloring the lights on the roof so I traced around the roof of the house on white cardstock and cut it out, crimped and attached it to the roof with glue dots.  I cut out several trees for the scene and to use on the top of the car.  I attached the blue tag to the base tag with ATG adhesive.  I cut an additional white tag and used my deckle scissors to cut the ground snow for the scene and attached to the tag with ATG adhesive.

I tucked the house and trees in behind the snow layers and attached with mounting tape. I folded two tree tops in half and attached to the roof of the car with glossy accents and attached the car in the scene with mounting tape.  I finished the scene by applying falling snowflakes in the sky area and on the trees with a white gel pen and attaching a tiny gold star to the top of one tree.

Button Snowman and Christmas Sale Alert

Good Tuesday morning. Before I start my project I want to make sure you are aware of the Make It Merry 30% off Christmas Category Sale at Ellen Hutson.

I haven’t used buttons on my projects for a very long time but I have been intrigued for a while by the 28 Lilac Lane Embellishment Kits and Embellishment Bottles with matching buttons, sequins, pearls and seed beads and had to try a couple.   My first thought when opening the Winter Wonderland Bottle was a snowman scene.  Here’s what I came up with.

I started by picking buttons with only two holes and attached little pieces of black cardstock on the back with so the holes would look like eyes and coal buttons.  Since the snowman is so little I created the scene on a small piece of kraft cardstock and layered it with the white and gingham layers.  I hand cut a little piece of ground snow with my deckle scissors and attached to the bottom of the scene. Next I attached the two fir trees with glossy accents.  The white scalloped layer was attached to the gingham card base with mounting tape.  The scene was attached to the red piece and was attached to the white layer with mounting tape.

I heated up my hot glue gun and used it to attach the two buttons to the scene.  I could have used glue dots but I wanted the buttons to be really secure.  I hand cut the tiny hat and scarf using Taylored Expressions red and white felt and attached them to the snowman with tiny dots of hot glue.  I finished by attaching sparkly sequins all around the snowman for the look of falling snow.  I know….the snowflakes are almost the size of the snowman.  LOL!
