Winter Wonderland

Are you getting in the Christmas mood??
It's kind of hard for me when it's been so warm  out lately (not complaining)
But, one of my very favorite things to do is make my own tags....
I usually sit down for a few afternoons and just start in, it is so fun!!
 
 
the challenge is to make a tag using at least one CLD die...
Yesterday I cut and glittered an entire "pile" of the CLD snowflowers set 1...
I also cut some pieces from the Build A flower Embellishment set 2
and glittered them as well....
 
 
I didn't use all of them, so I have a nice stock ready for further projects....
I wish you could see all the glitter better on them, they are loaded....
I use Glue and Seal from Ranger (it is always on my desk) applied with a paint brush
then coated with MS fine glitter...
the Glue and Seal is how I apply all my delicate die cuts as it dries clear!!
I also used the Holly Flourish (love this) from Cheery Lynn
the stamp is Hampton Art..... 
 
 
and on a funny note, I wanted to share "KittyWitty's" photos...
I was outside the other day trying to get a good pic of a card
and this character stuck her face in my lens.....
there is a "normal" picture of her below this one
she is a "rescue" cat!

Ooohh this is gorgeous. I love white on white - my favourite combo. I think I need to add that holly die to my wishlist, it's so delicate and beautiful.
