Christmas Blog Hop!

Shirley, over at look at my cute stuff, has done it again!  
Christmas Blog Hop!

You guys know how much I love Christmas - the cooking, baking, hunting for a tree, making amazing gifts!!!  So you knew I had to be part of this hop!

So I am working on tags for Christmas right now so this will be my first post

Wouldn't you just love to be able to put this cute card on your Christmas Packages?
I Started with WW card stock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Top Note die from Stampin Up!  Then I used the polka dots embossing folder to add Texture to the top Note.  Next I Used the Two Scallop Square die from Stampin Up! and created the second layer in Real Red Card Stock.  Then I took a piece of WW and stamped one of the snowman images from Snow Much Fun on each of the Tags.
I coloured the image first with my Dry styled aqua painter and Bashful Blue ink to add a snowy look to my snowmen.
Then I used Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive Stampin Write markers to colour in everything but the hat.  I used Water colour wonder crayons and a Blender Pen for the hat.
Then I stamped Merry Christmas from Forest Festivities on a scrap of paper.  I used the square punch to create the tail on the banner and rolled the opposite end to make it look like a scroll.  I added a mini silver Brad and sponged the edges of the Banner with Bashful Blue ink.  
Next I took my crop-a-dile and created a hole for my "ribbon"  Which is a piece of our Cute Christmas material!

Of course there is a dazzling diamonds snowbank in the background of the snowman too!

I just love these cute little tags!  And I hope you do too!

Glittery Hugs Kathryne

PS  this is just a different take with the other image from Snow Much Fun and some Real Red Grosgrain ribbon.

Now I know you want to join in on our fun so you can!!
Just post anything Christmas/winter and it needs to be 80% Stampin up!

Cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with!  So very very exciting!

I love these snowmen tags. The colors are bright and cheery and make me want to start cranking out tags! Great job.

Hi Kathryne - This is your SU Wish List buddy, Mary C. Love the snowmen and I just recently started using the crayons and the blender pens - my new "favorite" way to color in the images!

Hey Girl... Love the Tags, I did not even think about making them as big as the Top Note. I have to say this is my favorite New Christmas Set from SU this year. Thanks for joining the new Christmas Blog Hop!!
