pti november blog hop

It's the 25th of the month and it's time.


This month it's all about snow so this is what I did. I must tell you, I spent awhile at Tracey M.'s today, perusing all the tags she and her guests have made for her series 25 Tags of Christmas. My tag is a morph of several beauties I saw over there.


Used the Snowflake Flurries from PTI heat embossed with glitter powder to give the ornament some pep. Die cut a window to create a shaker which I filled with a medley of glittery sequins and backed with some PP.  Created an ornament topper with silver glitter CS and added fuzzy silver thread through a punched hole on the back layer to hang it with.

TIP: Instead of messing with foam adhesive, die cut a "frame" from craft foam and use that between your layers. See the shadow of mine? It's red foam. I use Matte Medium to glue it all together.


A close-up of all that sparkly embossing. I'm joining the ladies at Festive Friday for challenge #45. And Fusion for Sparkly Christmas. Yep! And lastly, Uniko Studio where it's Anything Goes.

Happy hopping. Happy turkey eating. And may you have snow only if you're not travelling this weekend!

  16. Awesome tag, Maria! It absolutely deserves its honorable mention at Fusion. I love the idea of using craft foam for the shaker "stuffing". I've never made a shaker card yet because I never wanted to fiddle with the foam adhesive, so I'll definitely give a try to your idea some time soon. (I don't know why I didn't comment on this post when I saw it first a few days ago. I'm so convinced I did but I must either have been dreaming or pressing the wrong button...)
