Rainbows and ... Snowmen?


It's time for a new Challenge at Your Next Stamp - 
the Fun Friday Challenge #156 with the theme:  Winter Wonderland

The Fun Friday Challenges come with two chances to win prizes and I have those details at the end of my post!!

Ever wonder what to do with those tags and cut aparts that often come in a 12 x 12" patterned paper pad? Here I have added stamps and dies and created two largish tags for the Fun Friday Challenge. I am not a fan of winter, rather not a fan of the bitter cold and icy roads etc. So far this year though, our winter has been mild and quite lovely - so I didn't want to make a wintery card. That is why I chose these colourful tags to work with.

These tags are large - 3-1/2 x 6-1/4" and could actually be used as post card style note cards! 
I don't generally write the standard 'to & from' on the back of my tags anyhow, as I usually write a message instead. 

After cutting out the tags from the 12 x 12" sheet of patterned paper, I adhered them to white card stock and cut them out again leaving a thin white border. I like a sturdy tag, and weight isn't an issue when it isn't going through the mail. I also did a little stamping on the back using the colour combination from the tags.

I used the same colours for these ADORABLE snowmen! These were released in November - just in time to make holiday cards & tags with. To hide the holly on the snowman's hat, I adhered 3 glittery hearts. These hearts are the fallaway pieces from the heart border at the bottom of the tag.

These tags will be so cute when adhered to a white or Kraft gift bag!
