Have you been enjoying the hot July weather? Need to cool off a bit?? How about making a project with a snowman (or women) on it? If it doesn't take you away to somewhere a little cooler, at least you will have one more Christmas project done and ready, hence avoiding the December card madness :) If you haven't already guessed, this month's Christmas at Sweet Stampin' theme is Snow People. I hope you will join in :)
I have made some happy little gift tags for this month. I created a Tim Holtz style background (well, with a bit more glitter then he might use lol) by smearing my card through Distress inks. A little shimmer spray wash and some stamping for a light snow effect finished the look. I decorated my tags with some torn paper (again washed with shimmer spray) for the snow, my snowman image (from CTMH) coloured with pencils, a snowflake with rhinestone, some tinsel and a couple of beads. The letters were cut from a TH die and covered generously with Christmas red stickles. And there you have it - pretty simple but I think they turned out really cute :)
If you pop by Christmas at Sweet Stampin', you'll be able to feast your eyes on the gorgeous creations the team made to help inspire you. This month we are sponsored by My Mom' Craft Shop, who are generously providing the lucky winner with a £10 voucher to their store. So, come join us in the Frosty fun!
