Hello Crafty Friends!!
I'm here with Paper Sweeties sharing a SWEET Tag FULL of Texture and Sparkle as part of the 
25 Days of Christmas Tags 2019 
hosted by Tracy McNeely!! 

I've used the BEAUTIFUL For You Sweet Cuts Die for the Stitched Tag!! One cut from White Cardstock and one from Patterned Paper that I got from the Paper Sweeties October Card Kit!! I've also used the Foam Snowflakes that I covered with some Clear Glitter also included in that kit!! I added some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to the Tag Base and then Die Cut the smallest Circle Scalloped Frame from some Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock in the NEW Blue Sky color!! I added some Dark Blue Cardstock to the back of the frame and then added the Glittered Foam Snowflake to the center of the Frame!! I LOVE all of the Texture and Sparkle!! A Snowflake Sequin and a Jewel finishes off the Snowflake!! I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Merry Little Christmas Stamp Set and then finished off the Tag by adding a sprinkling of Sequins and Jewels to the background and some Frosting Seam Binding Ribbon that I inked to age it alittle and added aTwine Bow to finish it off!!  

Such a SWEET Tag to create!! I hope I've INSPIRED you to create some Tags of your own!!??  THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!

 SWOON!! This Stamp Set has my HEART!! I LOVE Snowmen and this Image couldn't be any more PERFECT!! I definitely wanted the Image to be the Focal so I Started by Stamping and Embossing the Image!! I used Copic Markers to Color in the Image!! 
I used (Snowmen & White on Hats: No, N2 & 0   Cheeks: R00 Carrot Noses: YR00 & YR68  Top Hat: N2, N4 & N8  R43, R46 & R89  Red: R43, R46 & R89  Green: G00, G05 & G09  Turquoise: BG10, BG45 & BG49  Pink: RV00, RV11 & RV34)

White Gel Pen for Highlights, Black Glaze Pen to the Buttons and Eyes, Nuvo Drops in Morning Dew to the Carrot Noses and Red Brim on the Top Hat and Nuvo Glitter Drops in Blizzard to the Stocking Hat Brims and Pom-Poms!!

We're all a bit Flaky by Larissa Heskett for Newton's Nook Designs using Frosty Folks, Frames and Flags and Snowfall Stencil #newtonsnook #newtonsnookdesigns #frostyfolks #snowfallstencil #snowmenfamily
I Die Cut the Rectangle Panel from the NND Frames and Flags Die Set and knew I wanted to add some Snowflakes!! I sprayed the back of my NND Snowfall Stencil with some Therm O Web Pixie Spray and then adhered it onto my Panel!! I taped off the edges of the panel in order to keep them white with Purple Tape and then I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink along with some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Ink to get a Light Turquoise Color to match my Images!! I LOVE the way the Distress Oxide Inks Blend!! I then removed the Stencil and blended over the Snowflakes to help blend them into the background alitte!! I think the Soft Design really shines behind the Image!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment using both WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and some WoW Rockin' Red Glitter Embossing Powder!! The Iridescent Glitter in the Embossing Powder goes really well with the Iridescent Glitter in the Blizzard Nuvo Drops!! Then I added a Few of the Snowflake Images from the Set and Embossed them with some WoW White Embossing Powder!! Iridescent Pretty Pink Posh Jewels were added to finish off the center of the Snowflakes!! Then I added it to a Patterned Paper Scalloped Frame that I die Cut also from the NND Frames and Flags Die Set!! I LOVE this and I'll be making SEVERAL more as this Image and the Sentiments is one of my NEW FAVORITES!!

How SWEET are those Penguins!!?? I LOVE them and with the Holiday Season approaching rapidly, I thought it would be FUN to show how AMAZING they look on Winter/Holiday Tags!! I have several Family/Friends with Winter Birthdays so this Tag Design is going to be PERFECT for those!! I can coordinate the Colors of my Image with the Patterned Paper I want to use and it make coloring the Image a BREEZE too!!

Piles of Warm Winter Wishes by Larissa Heskett for Newton's Nook Designs using Penguin Piles, Bokeh Stencil, Fancy Edges Tags Die #newtonsnook #newtonsnookdesigns #penguinpile
I Die Cut 2 Tags using the Fancy Edges Tag Die!! One from White Cardstock and one from some Patterned Paper!! I then used the Bokeh Stencil as a Mask to Highlight the area where I planned on Stamping and Embossing the Sentiment!! I used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and then Inked over it with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink to get the perfect match for the Patterned Paper!! I added some Water Splatters and let it dry!! Then I used a Static Bag to coat over the Inked Circle and Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment!! I Masked parts of the sentiment in order to Highlight a couple of the words!! I used WoW Embossing Powder in Clear and Rockin' Red!! The Irridescent Glitter in the Embossing Powder coordinates with the Iridescent Glitter in the Blizzard Nuvo Drops!! I used a Mini White Clothes Pin to attach the Tags to the Gift Bag and then created a Scrap Ribbon Bow!! I LOVE the way it turned out and just know it's going to bring SMILES to the recipient!!

For my second Card I wanted to showcase this BEAUTIFUL Sentiment!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment with some Distress Oxide Chipped Sapphire Ink and WoW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder!! I used Copic Markers to color it in with an Ombre` Design!! 
I used (B02, B32, B34, B37 & B39)
I then used a Stitched Square Die to Die Cut the Sentiment centering in in the Middle!! I wanted to Frame the Sentiment so I Die Cut another Stitched Square and used the Sunny Studio Stamps Layered Snowflake Frame Die and Die Cut it from the center of the Stitched Square!! It fit the NND Frames Squared Scalloped Frame PERFECTLY!! I wanted the Snowflakes to tie into the Design some I inked the tips of the Snowflakes with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink!! For the Cardbase Panel I used the NND Snowfall Stencil and inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink!!

I Adhered the Stitched Squares together using some TE Foam Strips after adding some Blizzard Glitter Nuvo Drops to the Snowflakes and some Iridescent Jewels to the center of the Large Snowflakes!! I LOVE the additions of Sparkle!! Then I glued the Stitched Square to the center of the Scalloped Square!! I added Foam Tape to the back of the Scalloped Square and adhered it to the A2 Snowflake Stenciled Cardbase!!  This Card is just STUNNING in real like and could be used for SO MANY occastions just by adding an additional Stamped Sentiment on the inside of the Card!!

Bring on the Snow by Larissa Heskett for Newton's Nook Designs using Newton's Toboggan, Mountains Stencil, Speech Bubbles Die and Framework Die Set #newtonsnook #newtonsnookdesigns #newtonstoboggan #mountainsstencil
This Scene just makes me Giggle!! One of my FAVORITE parts of Winter has always been Sledding, so this set brings back to ALL of the memories I have of Sledding!! Although I'm not quite ready for sledding this year, I have a feeling Mother Nature may have a different plan in store as we've already had snow and got more yesterday!! BRRRR!! Anyway, I KNEW I wanted to create a Simple scene and let ALL of the AMAZING details of this Image be the Focal!! I Stamped and Embossed the Image and colored it in with Copic Markers!! 
I used (Cats: E40, E42, E43 & E44  Cheeks, Ears & Paws: R00  Green: YG61, YG63 & YG67  Red: R43, R46 & R89  White: N0 & N2  Toboggan: E33, E35 & E37  Shadows: W2 & W5) Then I used the coordinating Die to Die Cut the Image out!! I added White Gel Pen Details and added some Black Glaze Pen to the Noses!!

I then focused on the Background!! I used the NEW Mountains Stencil to create my Mountains using Distress Oxide Ink in Hickory Smoke and Weathered Wood and a Blender Brush for a super soft look!! Then I ran a Static Bag over the Image and Inked over the Sky with Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass!! I ran the Static Bag over the entire Sky and then replaced the Mountains Stencil and Inked the Mountain tops with some Versa Mark Ink and and Ink Dauber!! I added some WoW White Embossing Powder and then Heat Set it!! I LOVE the way it looks and it adds the PERFECT touch of texture too!! I used my Ink Blender to also add some Shadows in front of and behind the Image to make it look more realistic!! I Die Cut the Speech Bubble and Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment!! Then added the Speech Bubble Sentiment with some Foam Tape and I also added the Image with some Foam Tape just on the Top 2/3 of the Image leaving the bottom free and applying some Liquid Glue so the image looks like its really tilting!! I LOVE this look in real life!! I Die Cut the Framework Frame from Kraft that I inked with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then adhered it to some Patterned Paper onto my A2 Cardbase!!
