Tag You're It

Hello everyone!
I’m back with a quick post...There’s a new card challenge in Blog Land called, ‘Tag You’re It’, which has been coordinated by Jackie Rockwell! And let me tell you, Jackie has chosen an AMAZING Design Team with the most inspiring tags!

This week is a ‘Warm Up’ mini-challenge, and the Guest Designer is Karin Akesdotter, who provided the inspiration for us with this tag:



I was inspired by Karin’s water coloring and how she created her really cute beach scene. So, I die cut my PTI tag with water color paper, stamped the umbrella’s and sand, and used distress inks and water to color everything. I also created a gift box, with stamped sea shells in Soft Pool ink, and added ribbon and a bow. Here is my tag:



I can’t seem to put down my new Mama Elephant stamps, so I created a 2nd tag just for fun:


For this tag, I used Lil’ Inkers stitched tag die, then stamped, die cut and colored the little girl, and popped her up on vellum clouds.

That’s it for me today...I hope everyone's week is off to a great start!
