Anything Goes

There is a new theme up at Tag Tuesday. It's called "Anything Goes" and you can do whatever subject you want, as long as your artwork is on a tag!

My first tag uses an image from Gecko Galz. I love the story of Alice in Wonderland and the White Rabbit is one of my favorite characters. I die cut the image and added a clock charm to it. The tag was sprayed and stamped. Finally, I pop dotted the image and a word strip to the tag.

The second tag I made has a sprayed and stenciled background. I stamped a doll head onto a scrap of paper from a book and fussy cut it out. Then I just layered up a few bits and pieces that I found in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by!

Tag Tuesday

There's a new theme at Tag Tuesday, chosen by me, and it's called Summer Fun! Boating, fishing, gardening, nature, just being outside - whatever you love to do in the summer will fit this challenge!

The first tag I made features a beach and travel theme. I used products from Cocoa Daisy (except for the flower and brad).

My second tag has an image from Gecko Galz on a tag made from paper in my scrap drawer. Watermelon is one of my favorite summer fruits! Eating outside, under a tree, is something fun to do in summer!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will join us at Tag Tuesday and share your idea of Summer Fun!

Here Comes the Sun

A new theme at Tag Tuesday and one I love! We have had so much rain and have finally had several sunny days in a row! I used a chipboard sun on my sprayed tag, along with a Tim Holtz girl. The words were cut from a package I received in the mail.

Thanks for stopping by today! And, as always, we'd love to have you join us at Tag Tuesday for this challenge.

Wings

Another two weeks have flown by and it's time for a new challenge at Tag Tuesday - Wings!

I used a sprayed tag and a vintage image on my tag. Then I added a pair of large wings which I die cut from a Sizzix die and embossed with an embossing folder.

Please join us at Tag Tuesday; we'd love to have you!

Beverages

There is a new challenge at Tag Tuesday. It's called "Beverages" - coffee, tea, water, cocktails, etc. Whatever you like to drink can be applied to a tag and linked to Tag Tuesday!

I chose to make two tags, both with the theme "tea". I am a coffee drinker normally, but like a good cup of tea occasionally.

Please join us at Tag Tuesday this week!

Sea world

Time for a new challenge at Tag Tuesday! Wendy has chosen Sea world - the sea, fish, mermaids - use something realistic or not!

I used a Bo Bunny mermaid die cut and shell. They were adhered to an inked tag which had been stamped with seaweed. I added a word sticker that says, "Be Bright, Be Shiny".

Faces

A new theme at Tag Tuesday, chosen by Michelle, it's called "Faces". I used a Dina Wakley stamp on a tag which was sprayed with Dylusions sprays. Various other bits and pieces were used to represent the 4 seasons.

She has Spring flowers in her hair, gold leaves for Fall, a blue die cut (which reminded me of a snowflake) and a sparkly gem for Winter and bright Summer background colors!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hares and Rabbits

The new theme at Tag Tuesday is Hares and Rabbits, chosen by Wilma. I haven't seen any rabbits yet, but the robins are back and I do think Spring is coming!

I have no rabbit stamps so I used a few die cuts on a stenciled tag. Simple, but I like it!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Use a Favorite Stamp

Hi! I picked the theme/challenge for Tag Tuesday for the next 2 weeks. Please use one of your favorite stamps on the tag you create.

On the first tag I made, I used a "new favorite" stamp. I found this celestial stamp in my sister's stamp cabinet. I stamped the image in four different colors, cut out the shapes and layered them together with pop dots. I adhered it to a sprayed tag and added Tim Holtz word stickers.

For my second tag, I used an "old favorite" stamp. It's a background text stamp which I applied to a sprayed tag and added a die cut.

Please join us at Tag Tuesday for this challenge!

New Tag Tuesday theme

Yesterday was another day of crafting with my sister and our friend. First we did some Gelli printing on deli paper, envelopes and other ephemera. We used those things, and more, to create nature themed junk journals.

I used mushroom stickers on a tag for the cover of my journal. It goes along with the theme for the next two weeks at Tag Tuesday - Mushrooms/Fungi. I also added some Tim Holtz die cuts of wildflowers and a sticker with the words "Beautiful Day".

Thanks for stopping by and have a Beautiful Day!

Happy New Year!

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Tag Tuesday. It's called "All Things New". This theme was chosen by Valerie and she says you can use something new, try something new (like a technique) or make a new tag. Lots of fun choices and we hope you will join us!

My sister hosts a craft get-together a few times a month. Yesterday we met and made tags. We used all Ranger products - Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks, Dina Wakely stamps (the ladies) and Dylusions die cuts, stamps and word stickers.

Here is my tag booklet.

And here is a photo of the largest tag, which is probably my favorite!
