Isn't this just the sweetest scene?

Create Along With Us: November 2017

Today, I have a tag to share that I made for



We have our parent teacher conferences this morning and, as is our custom,
we made some butter crunch to give to the teachers we visit.
I was totally inspired by this gorgeous card from Betsy to make my tags to accompany my treats.


Isn't it beautiful?
Here's one of my tags:


I started by  diecutting my tag using Tag Sale #7 from Rustic White cardstock.
I made a stencil by diecutting the rectangle from the die set from clear cardstock
and blended Green Parakeet and Hawaiian Shores ink onto my tag.
Leaving the stencil in place, I stamped the snowflakes from the stamp
set that accompanies the Shaker Shapes: Snowglobe dies, in Tropical Teal and New Leaf.


I stamped the sentiment (from Fillable Frames #10) in Tropical Teal 
and added a MFT snowflake die, which was also diecut from Rustic White cardstock.

Inspired By All the Little Things #72:

I was inspired by the white on grey, as well as the lights,
which made me think of stars.

blended Altenew Evening Grey onto the bottom of the scalloped frame.

onto the diecuts, as well as the background and layered them together.


To finish it off, I added some Papertrey Ink wooden stars, some
of which I coloured using one of my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers.
