CASE Study 166: Snow & Ho Ho Ho



I'm back again as the November Guest Designer at

CASE Study
I love CASE Study

You knew there had to be one with Keisha's recognizable tags, right?  She rocks tags like nobody's business:


Here's how her tags inspired me:



Keisha's overall design inspired me with the use of white tags and white twine.

The pops of color on her pinwheel tag inspired my big bloom tag.  The use of the die cut label and stacked die cuts on her other tag inspired my Snow tag.

I made the 2 tags and attached them to skinnified cards:  3.25 x 5.5.

Each tag was made with white card stock and then embossed with polkas.

First up is the Snow tag:



The snow flash card is Melissa Frances, the die cut blooms are Teresa Collins that I've stamped with polkas from the Fresh Squeezed Stamps, You Said it Sister set.  I used Delicata Golden Glitz....that stuff is amazing.  The photos don't do it justice but it has the most gorgeous golden sheen.


Next up is the Ho Ho Ho tag:



Similar to the Snow tag, the tag base is white with polkas dry embossed on it.  The blooms are from Teresa Collins....see the banner and circle below the bloom?  Those are upcycled from the Teresa Collins packaging!  

I made a flag using a label die cut from my stash and the Ho Ho Ho is SRM.


Each tag has a notch on the top ala cork.

I can't wait to check out what Keisha and the CASE Study Design Team whipped up!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
