Tuesday Trigger Tag!

Hi there! Well, I HAD to play along with this weeks Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab Blog because I couldn't take my eyes off of the inspiration photo when I first saw it.
Here is this week's inspiration:
Yummy! Just look at the awesome colors!
I know you will want to play along too---just create a project inspired by the picture above and then add your link to the Moxie Fab blog.

Here is my tag that was inspired by the photo:


Did you see the little Christmas tree cookies in the top of the picture? Yep. I was inspired by those and by the gorgeous colors and all the yummy frosting. I stamped the script background from the Gina K Winter Wonderland Stamp TV kit onto the tag I cut with my Cricut Expression (woohoo!). I cut some tree shapes using the Winter Wonderland Cricut cartridge and some Echo Park designer paper.

To capture the softness of the frosting, I used some white felt (My Favorite Things) to line the bottom of the tag and cut it with the Jumbo Scallop die (My Favorite Things). I stitched along the edge of the felt hills to add some more texture.

Do you see the snowflakes on top of the cupcakes in the inspiration photo? I used Snowflake Wonder dies from Spellbinders to cut out the felt snowflake and added a sticker (Echo Park) on top before adding a pink rhinestone. The tag was sponged with some Tea Dye ink (Ranger).

That is it :) Thanks for stopping by!
