Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful....

Okay, so the weather outside isn't "frightful" but it is getting a little chilly here in So. Cal.  It's a nice break from the HOTness we had been having.  I used that title because it's the first line of one of my favorite Christmas songs.  I've been listening to Christmas music for the past several days and I am so excited for Christmas this year....I'll actually be able to enjoy it more since I don't have a newborn.

ANYWHO....This week's challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is Winter Wonderland.




My friends Carin and Brianna hosted a Christmas tag class last week and this is one of the projects we made:



It's a cute winter-y, shaker ornament tag that can be turned into a tree or door knob ornament after it's gifted.  The shaker was made with a treat cup.  I've had those darn treat cups for eons now and I couldn't justify giving them to my kids' classmates filled with candy.  I just know they'd get torn open and thrown out.  What better way to use them then these cute ornament tags?!  :)
Here is a close up shot:


I'm sorry to say that this cute little snowman is from a retired stamp set called Just Celebrate.  I know, it's so cute, but we do have some super cute new snowman stamps.  :)

Ingredients...
Colors: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Black Stazon, Tangerine Tango Marker
Stamps:  Just Celebrate, Loads of Love
Accessories:  Clear Circle Die, Large Scallop Circle Punch, 1 3/4" Circle punch, Tab Punch, Treat cup, Dazzling Diamonds, Snowflake embossing folder, Silver Cord

Happy Stamping,
Krista

I am doing a tag swap in December and this is perfect! I love that it can be reused as an ornament too!
