Winter Wonderland stamp set

Flourishes Two stamp set

How the Mystery Party works:
On two of the participating blogs below, a Commenter will be selected to receive the prize.

But before that, take a look to the tag/ornament I made with this fantastic Winter Wonderland stamp. This scene is absolutely wonderful and so easy to color.
I adhere 4½" long stip of 2½” Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" to red cardstock and die-cut it with Spellbinders oval with decorative corners die from Radiant Rectangles set. After removing the  protective sheet I added Gypsy Red Velvet Glitter on top and burnished it in.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black on top of the piece of paper covered with 2½" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape" and Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter. Oval is die cut with Spellbinder die. Image is colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I added some Dimensional Glue to the trees, snowflakes and around the oval and sprinkled some Diamond Dust Glitter on top.
Golden oval is covered with Gold Detail embossing powder.
The bow is adhered with Mega Tack Glue. Put some glue to the back of the bow. Let it dry a bit. Attach it to place. You will never have to buy any glue dots again.
You'll find full direction of how I made this tag from  SNS art gallery.

Little deer on back of the tag is die-cut with Marianne Design Die out of piece of cardstock covered with 2½” Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape". After removing protective sheet I covered it with Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft and color it with brown marker.
