In the Meadow with Ranger Ink


Happy Fri-Yay, crafty friends! Are you all ready for the weekend? It’s always such a happy day when Friday rolls around again, and what a beautiful day it is, too. I just got bundled into my winter coat and hat and set out to walk the dog, only to quickly find out that it’s actually about 60 degrees today. Obviously I didn’t bother to check before I headed out, and clearly, just like Bernie with his woolly winter mittens, I am prepared for winter.


And even though we’re far from any real snow around here, I do have some frosty friends to share with you today. These snowy tags feature some fun snowman stamps from Tim Holtz and Stamper’s Anonymous and lots of layers of Distress products, from Archival Distress to Distress Oxide to regular Distress Ink. Throw in some Distress Paint and Distress Grit Paste, and finish things off with a bit of Distress Texture Paste, for good measure. Each product brings its own unique qualities to the design, and I love how these simple tags look opaque in some areas and translucent in others, with a great textured tactile finish all over.


I used Tim Holtz Sizzix dies to cut the tags and add the crochet paper trim to the bottom. Simple ribbon ties were added to the top, along with some long-hoarded Idea-ology ice skate trinkets.

I’m very happy to have the full step-by-step tutorial for creating these tags up on the Ranger Ink Project Page, if you’d like to learn more.
Happy weekend, friends! And thanks so much for stopping by!
