I absolutely love this tag! When I opened it, I'm pretty sure I gasped! I love the detail and the placement of the snowflakes. The stamped house image is so peaceful and warm and welcoming! Beautifully done Melissa! I am beyond thrilled that I was the lucky recipient of this lovely tag!
I too thot you had masked the cottage image! Beautifully done! Has a 'Kinkaide' (sp?) look with the glow of the windows.
This is just beautiful, Melissa. I thought you had masked the cottage to stamp the snowflakes, but realised that you'd just arranged them so well that they blend in.
Fabulous! The farmhouse stamp is beautiful and surrounding it with the snowflakes is fantastic! This would be a wonderful winter bookmark.
WOW!!! What a pretty tag!
I love the snowy stamped scene you created with the black and white house in the middle of the tag. The yellow glow adds such a nice touch to this. Very creative, Thanks for participating and sharing this lovely tag!! :)
Isn't this scene pretty!? I love the glowing windows and the variety of snowflakes for the background. Great tag!

This is my tag for January Tag Swap and following are the instructions:
First I cut out and punched a hole from white cardstock to make a tag. Next I distressed the top edge of the tag with Tim Holtz (TH) “Stormy Sky” distressed ink and the bottom edge of the tag with TH “Weathered Wood” distressed ink. I then stamped part of the Stampendous “Snow Postcard” stamp with Versamark ink pad and marker, and embossed with black Zing! embossing powder. I added the “glows” coming from the windows in the stamp by coloring with TH “Mustard Seed” distressed ink with a cotton swab. Next I stamped Martha Stewart snowflakes with either Inkadinkado “Blue Sky” and “ Sea Green” inks and Brilliance “Pearlescant Sky Blue” ink all over the tag. To finish off, I attached a red ribbon, trimmed the ends and applied Glossy Accent to the edges to keep from Fraying, and secured in the back with a dot of Glossy Accent.
