Simon Says Stamp - Flickr Challenge

Hi there blog friends!

This week marks the third challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Flickr Group and the theme for this challenge is "Trendy Tags"! So, since I'm happy to get some Christmas tags done in advance, I've created 2:


I started with a light blue cardstock, so it's difficult to see, but I used white embossing paste with SSS Falling Snow Stencil. I stamped and die cut the trees and sentiment, added some twine, and that was it :)
Here is a close up of the 'snow' on this tag:

For this tag, I stamped the mittens and light blue snowflakes onto white cardstock, then added a red border which was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder. The bells are from Pretty Pink Posh, as are both tags I used for this challenge, and the twine is from Lawn Fawn. Lastly, I added some Wink of Stella clear glitter, and this tag was finished!

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you're interested in joining in the Challenge, our Hostess is the amazing Barb Engler, and you can find all the details HERE! The winner of this challenge receives a Gift Card from SSS to the tune of $50.00!!! Now, that would surely put a dent in my Wishlist!
Hope to see you there,
Barb

Tags I only seem to remember when I'm actually wrapping the presents, maybe I need to get in early myself too. Thanks for the inspiration with these cuties!
