Dear Santa and Brrrr

I think this is my favorite project this month!  I seldom create tags but as soon as I saw the Brrr stamp set I new what I wanted to create!  I stamped and colored the images and then fussy cut them out; I also paper pieced the hats on the two end snowmen!  I used word bubble dies for the sentiments.  The blue bow was from a package of bows I found in the Michaels dollar bin!

Here's another "favorite" and fun project!  I used the Dear Santa stamp set to create a count down calendar!  The image is in a 5x7 acrylic frame.  The numbers were stamped using the MFP Calendar stamp set and then used a circle punch to punch them out.  An adhesive magnet was added to hold the numbers to the frame so they could be changed out easily.  A bulldog clip holds the banners in place with the magnet and numbers adhered.

  8. Ok, these are simply amazing. I love all the work that went into your snowman tags. I love the paper pieced hats. I did paper piecing on my snowman with the scarf and mittens. After cutting out all the little pieces, I knew that I must be insane or something close to that but I like how it turned out. I think next time, I'll just do like you did. That blue bow is perfect for that snowman tag. Your Santa card with the count down is a cute idea. Great job showcasing the stamps this month.
