My Cards and Tags: Tree Tags Using Reverse Confetti's Fa La La die

Icy inspiration is the name of the game for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  We're also incorporating fabulous products from Paper Artsy.  I love the soft shades of snow and retro teals and pinks, so that's the color palette I went with for these tree tags.

I started by stamping some letters and dots onto my tags using Embossing Ink.  Then I sprinkled white embossing powder on and shot them with the heat gun.

After that, I water-colored over the surface of the tags.  While that dried, I got some fabric scraps and made the green and teal trees.  I like using Tim Holtz's Petal Drop die to make triangle trees (I cut the curved portion off the bottom).

I made a pink triangle, too, and heat-embossed some white circles onto it.  After that, it was just a matter of gluing all my layers down.  I used a great Fa La La die from Reverse Confetti as my focal point for the big tag.

I added a star to the top of the tree and smudged around it with Mustard Yellow Distress Ink to give it a glow.  I also added polka-dot Washi tape tree pots.

On the smaller tag, I used Seth Apter's Coffee Ring dies in the background and glued on some mini pom-pom trim I had in my stash.  I did the same star technique on this tag, too.  I outlined areas on both tags with a black Sharpie.

I enjoyed making these tags, which got me in the snowy spirit of the season!  Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
