The major technique is cutting a tag shape from scrap plastic and then embossing it. That piece is put on top of the actual tag and it is such a wonderful look. For Christmas, using the snowflakes folder and with the snowman underneath, it is almost magical.
Tim cut his snowman from grungeboard using his snowman die. I don't have that (hard to believe, but I really don't own everything Tim has ever created). Here's how I adapted:
I do have the snowman stamp, and what I did was use a light colored marker to go around the outline of it only (not touching the snowflake decoration on the body), stamping it on grungeboard and cutting it out. The stamp doesn't have quite the same arms, so I cut those out freehand. After that, I just followed Tim's directions on painting, distressing and assembling the snowman. Since the stamp is much smaller than the die, I made a further adjustment so the snowman wouldn't look lost on the tag. Instead of stamping the sentiment ON the snowman, I did it separately and placed it underneath.
I think my favorite part is the way the scarf comes out from behind the plastic.
For my Wendified version, I once again used that flower/pumpkin stamp to create two ornaments and glitzed them up with stickles.
The "strings" from which they hang were done with gold embossing powder, after drawing them with a versamark pen. Danglies on the bottom and little bows on the top finish off the ornaments.
Instead of the snowflake embossing folder, I used a Cuttlebug one called Victoria. It felt much more Wendy to me. I also substituted
Stampin' Up's glimmer brads in black for the regular brad and washer that Tim used (and that I also used on the first tag) as a way to put the two pieces together.
Now, aren't you glad you've been saving your plastic packaging material?
