Snowman Christmas Bag, Card and Tag using Build a Snowman Stamp

Inspired by Stamping is releasing the Build a Snowman Stamp Set....I used the set to make a fun gift bag and a card with.....I am sure you know it is starting to be the time to start think of Christmas and we all need to have gift bags, so what better way to have them but to make them for your love ones.

 To begin with I bought a green gift bag at my local craft store and some pretty pattern paper.....
I placed my corner chomped snowflake paper to the top of the bag along with the papers that I had matted and decorated once I had tied my gingham ribbon around the matted papers.....
I stamped my snowman, hat and banner from the Build a Snowman Stamp Set twice so I would be able to layer them all together. I stamped the snowman with black ink and the patch and stocking hat with red ink colored some shading in with a light blue copic marker on the left side of the snowman. I stamped the banner using green ink and colored the center of the Joy letters in with a light yellow copic marker. I fussy cut both snowman and hats out and layered them together with pop dots after I had tied his ribbon around the snowman neck, added a bit of thick glitter on the left side using a glue pen. I fussy cut one of the "Joy" Banner completely out including the streamers and then the second set I only cut the stars out, layered that stars on top of the banner with pop dots and added it to the top of the snowman that had been placed on the bag front. I repeat the thick glitter on the hat band and pom pom.
 I added a fun tag from the Holiday Tag stamp Set that was shared on the Inspired by Stamping Blog on September 8th. I stamped the tag with red ink, added my "To" and "From" with black ink, stamped and fussy cut the holly with green ink and added them to the top of the tag prior to attaching it to the bag.
 For my accompanying card I placed my pattern paper on my white card base. Stamping my snowman from the Build A Snowman Stamp Set on to a piece of white card stock with black ink and the patches in red ink, matted on light blue card stock and shaded the snowman on the left side with a light blue copic marker. I shaded under the snowman using a light grey copic marker to make it look like snow and then with my embossing pen randomly squiggled lines and embossed with white embossing powered. I colored my "Let It Snow" sign with two shades of green copic markers. Finally, I stamped the snowman hat on scrap white paper with red ink, colored the white squares with a light lavender copic marker, attached it to the top of the snowman head, added a bit of thick glitter and a snowball gemstone to the hat....adding a red twine bow and a few lavender to gemstones the card front and snowman.
