Lawnscaping Challenge #23, Tags or Treat Bags

Pin It
Another fun Lawnscaping challenge! This week's was all about tags and treat bags. Since it's the holidays I chose to make a gift tag. I'm infatuated with Lawn Fawn's Making Frosty Friends stamp set. Maybe it's the Hawaiian/Southern girl in me longing for a white Christmas, but snowmen and snow flakes around the holidays make me happy.

I saw this picture on Pinterest and it just looked so pretty! So I decided to encase the snowman and penguin in an icy snow sheath.

I started off cutting out a tag on my Cricut with white cardstock. I stamped snow flakes from two different Lawn Fawn stamp sets (Making Frosty Friends and Critters in the Snow) with Versa Mark and then sprinkled with white embossing powder. After tapping off the excess embossing powder I heated the snowflakes with my heat tool. Once it cooled I blended two blue distress (broken china and stormy sky) inks with a distress stain in tumbled glass and sponged off any excess ink with a paper towel. Then I free handed some snow hills and out lined them in Copic markers and stickles and adhered them to the bottom of the tag. Because the plastic (just some excess packaging from a cheap-o digital camera) I ran through the Cuttlebug and embossed with a snowflake pattern was pretty thick, I decided to back the animals and tree with some thin chip board so that they stood out more by adding dimension. I had a snow making pen and decided to add some puffy snow on the snowman's hat poof and to the tree. I also added some mini bling and pearls to some of the snowflake centers and three black gems for the snowman's coal buttons. Tied a bow at the top of the tag with some doodlebug Christmas twine. If you have any questions, please leave me a comment or send me an e-mail and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!

I hope you like my tag and thanks so much for stopping by!

Inky & glittery fingers for all!
