Hello everyone! It is Anna-Karin today with a cheerful Snowman Tag Card made with new dies by Stephanie Ackerman.

I love Christmas and winter crafting and had such fun making this tag shaped card. Stephanie's Homegrown & Handmade dies and stamps are so cute and can be used for a range of different projects. My base is the Tag Card die, and I used the Snowman & Tag Framelits w/Stamps, Three Trees and Fresh Blossom Numbers Framelits w/Stamps to build the little winter scene.

Start by die cutting the Tag Card from watercolour cardstock, or another white cardstock. Use this sandwich:  Cutting Pad, die facing up, paper, second Cutting Pad (or Premium Crease Pad). The Tag Card die is also great for anyone who wants to make their own gift tags for Christmas.

Ink the dotted background stamp from Fresh Blossom Numbers with embossing ink, stamp on the front of the tag and heat emboss with white powder.

Paint the tags with Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Paint.

When the paint is almost dry, wipe with a moist cloth to remove it from the embossed dots. I liked this background and almost didn't want to cover it up.

Die cut the snowman, scarf, and hat from the new Paper Leather Sheets. These sheets are made from a latex saturated flat base to simulate the look and feel of real leather. They are very durable and have a great feel to them. You can die cut them, stamp, colour and do a whole lot of techniques. I am looking forward to exploring this new surface more. Use this sandwich: Sizzix Extended Multipurpose Platform Tab 1, Cutting Pad, leather paper, die facing down, second Cutting Pad. Or: Sizzix Magnetic Platform, Cutting Pad, leather paper, die facing down, second Cutting Pad.

Stamp the snowman's face with Jet Black ink.

Colour the snowman with Distress Markers, and heat emboss the dots on the scarf. After embossing, do the same technique as on the background, but with Twisted Citron paint.

Coat the snowman with a thin layer of Rock Candy Distress Stickles.

Die cut two numbers from black leather paper. Smear a tiny bit of white Texture Paste on the hat and numbers and sprinkle with Rock Candy Dry Distress Glitter. This creates the look of fluffy snow.

Smear Texture Paste on the trees with a palette knife. Leave to dry.

When the paste is dry, paint with Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and Pine Needles. Paint the trunks with Forest Moss.

Glue the trees to the background and adhere the Snowman with foam dots. I also stamped arms for the snowman, using the coordinating stamps included in the set, and cut out. Isn't he cute?

Use a Chit Chat sticker as a sentiment. At the base of the tag, I glued a scalloped border, from the Tag Card die.

Glue the numbers at the side of the snowman and tie a piece of ribbon to the tag card.

Thank you so much for watching! I hope the post inspired you to make your own little winter scene.

Happy crafting!
