Terrific Tag Tuesday: Frosty Cozy



Hi All! Welcome to the second installment of the Kraft-y Hearts' Terrific Tag Tuesday Blog Share. If you haven't been by Lynn's Bungalow to see what she has in store, you're missing out! So don't forget to pop by.

In the meantime, let's take a look at today's tag:


To create this tag, I cut the base from Neenah Solar White 110 pound cardstock. I then used Close To My Heart's Cozy Christmas Stamp Set, along with the coordinating dies, to finish it off. I began by stamping the outline of the snowman, his face and buttons on White Daisy cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I added his nose in Tangerine ink. I then stamped his hat in Tuxedo Black, his arms in Saddle Ink, and his scarf in Cranberry ink, all on White Daisy cardstock. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the pieces and set them aside. For the back ground, I stamped the two trees from Cozy Christmas in Willow Ink and snowflakes from the same set in Lagoon.

After I finished the background, I put the hat and arms on my snowman and popped him up on the tag using thin foam tape. I added his scarf with thin foam tape as well. I stamped the sentiment on White Daisy cardstock in Lagoon ink and then created a little wooden sign using my W0 and W3 Copic markers and my Bronze ShinHan marker. I added the sign to the tag with a layer of regular and a layer thin foam tape.

I finished it off by adding Liquid Glass to the hat, Christmas Red Stickles to the hatband and scarf, and Diamond Stickles to the eyes, nose, mouth, and buttons of the snowman, and to the centers of the snowflakes. When that was completely dry, I added some black marker accents to ground the whole scene and then tied on three strands of bakers twine from my stash for a hanger.

Here's a close up:


And here's another look at the tag:


I hope you enjoyed this fun little tag. Don't forget to hop by From My Bungalow to see what inspiring goodness Lynn has for you. And by the way, this cute little stamp set and its coordinating dies will be retiring at the end of the month, so you might want to grab it while you can.

Have a wonderfully creative day!

  2. Adorable! I really like the dimensional layers. Great idea to use the sentiment to create that little sign. I'll be lifting that idea for sure. I love this stamp set. And I don't think you can ever have too many snowman stamps!
