12 Tags of Christmas #9 and #10

I have never in my evers seen a peppermint mocha latte drinking snowman star and that's a shame because he's ADORABLE!  I'm not tooting my horn on how precious this guy turned out, because I have Linda to thank for the guidance and inspiration from her tag.

Here's her Tag 9 from The Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas 2015 and what doesn't scream out to you on this baby?  I mean, there's garland and a beverage and merriment sentiments and snowflakes and a beverage and jingle bells and a beverage and WOW, seriously wonderful.  So...I tried to utilize as many of those things as I possibly could between the snowman star and his little bag.
Also, as you know, this challenge continues to be sponsored by Linda's store The Funkie Junkie Boutique and boy howdy, does she have some incredible wonderful items that are just flying off the shelves. Hit the link above and check it out for yourself if you've never been there before. Plus, she has THE BEST prices!
Here's my tag 10 and of course my inspiration from Linda's tag 10.
I just dove right into every aspect on her tag. I loved the wintry pines, the frothy white texture, the aged gold and printed word.  Each of these elements I tried to reproduce on my snowman and bag.
There's still 2 more tags in the 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge and still time to play along!
Thank you so much for your visit and I hope you found some inspiration here.
Biggest of hugs and Happy Crafting,
Lisa xx

Hello Q,
You have successfully made each snowman unique, with talent like yours that is to be expected but they are relating personalities as well; perhaps this was your intention.
In any case they are gorgeous and your elements are full of pizzaz;I would like to just hold one.

You are right - your snowmen are adorable - I think I like that woodsy one the best. There is just something about him that is really magical! Of course that snowman drinking his latte is so dang cute but the woodsy one stole my heart. I hope at the end, you post all of these snowmen together!
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!! Of course it's easy for me to say that, I live in Florida!

Now I need to go to Starbucks for a peppermint Latte, thanks! These are so cute and the second star looks like a cookie, it would go well with that latte! I love your colors and distressing and the fluff on the bottom of your items. lol I love the tag and bag, love your textures and layers of Christmassy elements. Gorgeous things my friend,
Hugs Kelly

You hit gold with the snowman theme for your tags this year. These are great! Hmmm wonder if that latte is going to "melt" his insides? hee hee Hugs! H

Mitra Pratt said...

Oh rock star! I do so enjoy your posts! I can see pieces of her tag in both, but then they are also VERY LISA!!! Rock star little noses, love them both!!! Hugs!

Oh golly! Your snowmen are adorable Lisa, especially the peppermint mocha latte drinking one :-) xx

All creatures must delight in the wonder of the season... why not Mr. snowman star? I bet you got him hooked! I'm loving all the extras - bells, tulle, glitter - you have an amazing way of bringing everything together making something wondrous to behold!

I just love your creative genius Lisa! You are blessed girl! Nicola x

Pia S said...

I love all of these star shaped snowmen, Lisa. Many cute, some rustic, some elegant, like the second one in this post. And the gorgeous matching gift bags, wow. I can't imagine a more personal gift than this, I'm sure they'll be loved whoever receive these...

Elizabeth said...

Oh My Gosh! These are both my favorites! I don't even have words for how much I love them both!

butterfly said...

Peppermint Mocha Latte sounds excellent - not sure they serve us that one over here! And your two latest snowstars are excellent too... yes I do love Mr PML with his festive red and green (though I suspect that scarf is a little itchy), but you can probably guess that it's the vintage neutrals and fabulous dark pine needles of number 10 which have really captured my heart. Stunning. So sad that I'm not going to get to play along this year - unless there's a miracle, it's simply not going to happen. It is the time of year for miracles, I suppose...

Holy moly, Lisa! They just keep getting better and better! I am seriously in love with both of these. Peppermint Latte has me grinning and your vintage gold has me drooling. Both are fabulous - you are so clever!

Hugs,
Linda
