{Hero Arts Holiday Challenge} Snowman Joy Tags


I made a set of gift tags for the Hero Arts Holiday Challenge that runs from October 13th through December 1st. There are three creative options for this challenge and I chose the last one:
  • Deck the Cards – ‘Tis the season for decking the halls…and of course the cards, too! Use at least one Hero Arts embellishment to deck-out your holiday card. A few options include metallic decor, gems, pearls, and felt embellishments.
  • Merry and Bright – Brighten up your holidays with NEON! Use any Hero Arts neon ink or neon dauber on your project.
  • A Few of My Favorite Things – Create any Christmas/Holiday/Winter card with a favorite stamping technique plus a Hero Arts holiday stamp.

One of my favourite things to do is half-paper piece and half colour an image. It's a great compromise when I don't feel like using just one technique to dress up an image. When I'm making multiples, it also makes it easier and more fun, too! I stamped the Collage Music Background on the Ticket Frame Cuts. Then I stamped the large snowman from Snow Much Joy on to its coordinating Snowman Frame Cut. I paper pieced the hats and scarves with Echo Park's This & That Christmas paper pad, and shaded the faces and bodies with Copic markers. All Copic products are 25% off at Simon Says Stamp!


Have you played along with the Hero Arts Holiday Challenge? You have 'til December 1st to join in on the fun for a chance to win one of the four $50 shopping sprees to the Hero Arts Online Store!
