Tag You’re It #47

TYIC+%2347_Jeanne

Bonjour Everyone!

It’s time for another Tag You’re It Challenge! This week’s tag is from Jeanne Jachna, and I loved the color palette she used! It reminds me of France. So, I created a tag with my own version of two little French bees, madly in love of course! You can still play along right here: http://tagyoureitchallenge.blogspot.com/2016/05/tag-youre-it-47.html

Tag You’re It Challenge #45

IMG_2827-wm

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing a tag I created for Tag You’re It Challenge #45! I made this easy breezy dragonfly tag with some shiny red and yellow vellum. I usually make tags without sentiments, but this one from STAMPlorations seemed the perfect fit! You can play along and enter your tag at Tag You’re It right here: http://tagyoureitchallenge.blogspot.com/2016/04/tag-youre-it-challenge-45.html

Carol’s tag inspiration is just so bright and cheerful! I wanted to capture some of that bright, warm color and make someone feel cheerful too! Dragonflys have always been a symbol of change, so I say, welcome to new things!

I wanted to capture that bright and cheerful pink color palette in my floral inspired Easter tag. I used a combination of some of my favorite dies, and used watercolors to paint the background. I used a burnisher to make the flowers more of a bowl shape, and a tiny foam pop dot for the bunny.

I also added a little bit of glitter glue on the stamens for a different look. I haven’t decided which version I like better!

I went a little outside the box with this tag, creating a fun scene with blue skies, clouds, and one of my favorite springtime activities, planting trees! I love card designing, and I love trees too! Here’s a little secret about me: I am a certified Master Gardener, a certified Master Urban Gardener, and I used to work for a major land grant university in the Cooperative Extension program, which is funded by the Department of Agriculture! I spent many years developing youth education programs, and also helping urban communities create green space (parks and gardens) in the city. But more than anything, I love trees! Every year, I will plant at least one tree. When Mr. Crimson Owl and I were married, we planted a beautiful hardy magnolia tree on my father’s property that we all shower with love and earthly goodness every year. It’s a great tradition for any family!

Tag You’re It Challenge #34

TYIC #34

When I saw TYIC designer Susan Wuthrich’s pretty tag inspiration this week, I was thrilled to think about Spring in the middle of all this Christmas cheer! I brought out my favorite spring colors to create the idea of “family.”

I was really inspired by the colors and the idea of the sentiment. How will Susan’s tag inspire you? You can play along and link up your tag right here: http://tagyoureitchallenge.blogspot.com/2015/11/tag-youre-it-challenge-34.html

Tag You’re It #29

TYIC+%2329

TYIC Designer Carol Mayne brings us a festive tag this week! It makes me want to celebrate! Get all the details right here: http://tagyoureitchallenge.blogspot.com/2015/08/tag-youre-it-challenge-29.html

IMG_2034-wm

I was inspired by the theme of celebration, and the great shine and sparkle of Carol’s inspiration tag. I found some super shiny black card stock with a shiny element woven in, yet it never really photographed the way I wanted, making the tag look more like dullish gray instead of shiny black. Matte black would make the glitter paper and sequins really pop! I used shiny silver and white die cut stars and purple sequins for the party shaker, and a pretty iridescent ribbon. Perfect for a birthday bottle of bubbly!
