Featured Artist – Tag You’re It #67

I am really honoured to be the Featured Artist over on the Tag You’re It challenge blog for their 67th challenge. A big thank you to Tracey McNeely for inviting me. If you follow my blog, you would know I am a huge fan of making tags and I also used to be on the Design Team for this challenge. So it is nice to be back as a Featured Artist!

This tag is a little different to my usual style, but I was in the mood for some layers, texture and a more feminine creation. I used some texture paste and a Kaisercraft stencil to add texture to the background. The flower is a Die-Namics die called Upsy Daisies and the sentiment is from a MFT set called Label Maker Sentiments. The leaves die is a Fancy That die called Leafy Swirl.

I can’t wait to see how my tag inspires you. I hope you get a chance to play along. Head to the TYI blog for all the details.

Tag You’re It Challenge #12

It’s time for another Tag You’re It! Challenge.  This week’s inspiration tag is made by the lovely Tracey McNeely.

TYIC_12

I kept my tag simple with white heat embossing on red card stock, but added extra detail with some sparkle. The ‘Merry’ sentiment was coloured with a dark red Copic marker and then some clear Wink of Stella brush glitter pen was added over the top. You can see a tiny bit of sparkle in the photo.

25 Days of Christmas Tags and Tag You’re It Challenge #11

This week the Tag You’re It! Challenge team are playing along with Tracey McNeely’s 25 Days of Christmas tags.

25 Days of Christmas Tags

Maureen Merritt is the the designer this week for the TYI Challenge #11. I love everything about her card, especially the chevron backdrop.

TYIC_11

It is pretty obvious where my inspiration came from. I have never made a double tag before, but I quite like it and it certainly adds more interest to the tag. And I just had to get those chevrons in there somehow 🙂

Tag You’re It Challenge #10

It’s time for another Tag You’re It! Challenge. We had an amazing 44 entries last challenge. You guys rock!

This week we have a very sweet card made by Lynn Put. I just love that gorgeous cluster of pretty flowers!

TYIC_10

I fell in love with the softness of her colour scheme and I used her layout, just changed the placement of the sentiment. I switched up the flowers for a butterfly and some vellum leaves. The pink chevrons are embossing paste (coloured with some dye ink).

Tag You’re It Challenge #6

It’s time for another  Tag You’re It! Challenge. Can’t believe we are up to number 6 already!

Here is this week’s lovely inspiration tag – made by Karin Åkesdotter.

TYIC_6

I just HAD to include a butterfly as you know me, I love my butterflies. To add some sparkle, I created a glittery butterfly using some double sided adhesive and glitter.

Sending Smiles | Marion Vagg

The tag was from my scrap pile, but it was made by smooshing distress inks onto an acrylic block and then pressing it onto some water colour paper. I love this technique!
