October Tag Swap

Hi All! It's almost the weekend! Hope your week is going well. Wanted to share my tags for the October tag swap that Kyoko hosts every month on her blog... If you want to participate next month, be sure to check it out regularly for when sign ups are open. My partner this month was Leanne- go check out her blog here for some cute projects! I've been enjoying this swap a lot. We are supposed to make three identical tags to swap with our partner... but I didn't follow the rules again and made three similar tags- not identical. Sorry! I used these cute snowmen by TGF. This is a set from last year that I just adore! After stamping and coloring each snowman, I stamped a snowflake background stamp over the image with versamark. Then carefully added in some mica powders (different color on each card) on the background around the snowman. The camera doesn't pick up the shimmer of the mica powder, so you'll have to trust me that its metallic looking. After I was done coloring, I punched out the tags with my circle punch and then layered them on a Spellbinder large scallop die and topped it off with some ribbon. Hope Leanne likes it! Here's close ups of each tag.... Hope you will join the tag swap! Maybe you'll be my partner next month! Supplies:
  • Snowman stamps- TGF
  • Snowflake background stamp- Hero Arts
  • Mica powders
  • Circle punch- EK Success
  • Large scallop circle die- Spellbinders
  • Ribbon
