Classroom &Winter Wonderland

This tag was inspired in the Classroom at Ellen Hutson by Kittie Caracciolo.  She always gives me strong inspirations everyday. I wanted to try this tag. I love her winter tags, they are terrific,  I did mine a little different. First I Vera Marked the tag on White paper, the clouds and then did distressing for the sky, making the clouds by hand.. I die cut as she did the other elements. However; My bark tree, I cut down and removed all leaves before distressing with Antique Linen and Tea Dye, it is a Memory Box Grand Oak tree, and was to big for the tag. Before adding snow, I crimped the fir tree, I used some flower soft Polar White for snow and added white gel pen as well. Large tree is PTI Winter Meadow. The deer are from Memory Box Deer Trio and distressed with same inks as the bark tree except for the dark. then I hand tore the snow lines and crimped. and cut snowflakes with Memory Box Snowflake Burst. One last thing was to die cut the Cardinals from Impression Obsession Birch Tree
 and birds in red and the red ribbon from stash. I placed the snowflakes around to accent the scene. love how this turned out and hope to make more. tags are fun to make......thanks for looking and hope you enjoy too.

of the Christmas Spirit. I used image and  dies I had . Memory box tree, and star at top of tree, die cut in white card stock, then Vera Marked the church and embossed with clear Ranger embossing powder. I added jellyroll pen for snow on roof etc. and dots of snow through the sky. I add a Memory box bird for the
Spirit of Christmas. Gems were to bring sparkle and blue to the feeling of a peaceful evening. I hand tore the bottom snow and the crimped with my Friskers crimper. Ribbon was from stash.  I really enjoyed making this entry, tag. Hope you enjoy too.....thanks for looking an Merry Christmas.
