I have a super fun post for today. I’m playing along with the Newton’s Nook Design Team with a holiday blog hop.Snow Day stamp set to make a winter-y tag.
First, here is how I created the colorful background on the tag. I scribbled on a plain manila tag with Gelatos (Cotton Candy, Blueberry, Boysenberry, and Metallic Blueberry).
I then spritzed with water until the colors started to run. I used a water brush to help blend the colors just a bit.
Finally used a heat tool to dry the tag and set the colors. Very fast and easy, although a touch messy.
To decorate I spelled out “Snow day” using some foam letter stickers (Thickers by American Crafts). I then stamped the snow bear image above the words and then stamped a second time on white cardstock that was colored, cut out and adhered over the first image. I added some Liquid Applique along the base of the snow bear and Glossy Accents to his nose and buttons.
The pictures don’t show it well but the background is very shimmery. For a final touch I stamped some snowflakes here and there using Watercan Archival Ink (Ranger) and added rhinestones to their centers. Finally I stamped a sentiment on Kraft and popped it up above the “snow” and added some ribbon (May Arts).
