Today we are blessed to have two extremely talented young ladies joining us as we share our love with and for Hero Arts! There are so many fun and different ways to use snowflakes and we look forwards to seeing where their inspiration leads you. Don't forget to leave comments on all of our posts to win our random drawings each day throughout this series!
I am always inspired by techniques and it is one of the first things that drew me to Jennifer McGuire's work many years ago. Her detailed explanations and the step-outs she shares make it so very easy to learn and experiment with the techniques that she shares. You can find so much inspiration on her blog Jennifer McGuire Ink and the classes she co-teaches with Kristina Werner at Online Card Classes.
Today I am once again thrilled to have Jennifer join in the fun as we share her sparkly snowflake tags and thorough instructions with you. These beauties can be used on a gift or double as a Christmas tree ornament.
Thank you Jennifer for the support, kindness and encouragement you have shared with me over the years - I am so very blessed by your friendship. We appreciate the time you have taken to share this fabulous video and idea with us today! -Ellen
Yay! It is my favorite time of the year again… Ellen’s 12 Tags of Christmas! This series is always so inspiring, so I am very honored to be a part of it.
In my video, I show how to use your dies to create an inlaid ombre glitter look. Sounds cool, huh? Basically the glitter is set back into the paper for a smooth look that doesn’t rub off. I also blended the glitters together for an ombre look. And it isn’t hard! You can do this with any dies.
I hope you will give this technique a try. And a huge hug to Ellen for filling this industry with positive energy, support, and love.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! -Jennifer

We are happy to have Kelly Purkey joining us today for Day 6 of our feminine tags. Kelly's busy schedule includes traveling all over the world where she documents her passion for food and creativity. It is fun to see her clean, minimalist style showcased today as she uses her signature line of products with Hero Arts. The garland created using these versatile stamps adds a festive touch to her tag. Thank you Kelly for sharing your time and creativity with us!
Hello there, I’m excited to be sharing a tag today with a snowflake theme. I’ve been using my Clearly Kelly S’no Problem stamp set to add little snowflakes to lots of projects and it’s sized perfectly for a little tag.
- Start with the Hero Arts Candy Stripe Bold Pattern stamp to create the background. This is a 6x6 stamp but I’ve cut mine down to make it easier to use for card making or to create 3x4 Project Life cards. Stamp with pink ink to create the background.
- Trim down a transparency to fit just inside your regular tag. Stamp transparency with Stazon White Ink and S’no Problem stamps creating white snowflakes.
- Use the stamp set to create a fun garland to embellish the tag. Stamp white cardstock with the snowflakes from the S’no Problem stamps in a variety of colors then cut out the snowflakes.
- Adhere the snowflakes to a piece of twine to add onto your tags.
- Adhere the transparency and the garland to the main tag. I wanted to embellish it just a bit more, so I used the S’no Problem set to stamp a greeting onto a piece of white paper, trimmed out, and adhered to the card. I added just a little bling with gold staples and a clip from the office supply store.
I hope this inspires you to create a pretty snowflake tag and happy holidays everyone! -Kelly
