Snowman Puppet Tag Cards by Lynn Dionne

 Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Today we will be using a wonderful brand-new stamp and die set called the Ai Snowman Puppet Set (5803) which includes all of the pieces needed to create a boy or girl snowman! It is just so simple and adorable. I think it is one of my favorite stamp sets from this year's holiday collection!

We can start by stamping the images needed to create the boy and girl and color them using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Lt Pink, Pink, Geranium Red, Turquoise Green, Lt Blue, Cobalt Blue, Bright Yellow, Scarlet Red, Haze Blue, Beige, Mid Brown, Lt Gray, Cool Gray 6. We can also die cut them using the coordinating dies that come with this set. Once these are colored, we can add a few details using some gel pens in coordinating colors!

Next, let's die cut these pretty tags using the Ai Tag Stitched Dies (5132). We will die cut two from some white 100lb cardstock and two from some kraft 100lb cardstock. We can score one of the tags so that we can create a tag card design. I will show you how to do this in today's video!

We will also be using that same tag die to die cut two more tags from the Ai Gnome Paper Pack (5832). Which will give us a blue w/ white polka dots tag and a cream w/ blue polka dots tag.  These will serve as our snowy backgrounds.

Next, we can die cut a few snowy borders for each of the tags using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders Dies.

Let's also die cut a pretty snowflake for each of the tags using the Ai Lg Snowflake Dies (5353).

Now for the fun part.... assembling our cute little puppet snow people and our tags!

For a finishing touch, we will add a small heart in the center of each snowflake and some pretty velvet ribbon in pinks and blues!

These tags were created for the current "Clean and Simple" Blog Challenge! Although these tags have a lot of detail to them, I felt that the simplicity of the designs really fit this challenge so well. As always, we invite you to join in the blog challenge.... we would love to see what you create!

Thank you so much for joining me today!  Have a fun and crafty day!!!
