Farewell to the Tag You’re It Challenge

It is with sadness that we say goodbye to the Tag You’re It challenge that has been faithfully maintained by Tracey McNeely. I was on the original Design Team for this challenge so it will always hold a special place in my heart.

As part of the farewell, I was asked to choose my favourite tag that I had made for the challenge. My favourite tag is actually one that I made last year when I was asked to be a Guest Designer. To view the original post go here.

Thank you Tracey for all your hard work with keeping this challenge up and running. It has certainly been appreciated by many and this challenge will be missed.

Bunny Love – Penny Black

simplicity sister

Hello. I am slowly get back onto the card making bandwagon again. I have had family staying with us the last 2 weeks and that has involved a lot of things, but not any card making. It felt good to get back into it today.

I have a Penny Black card to share with you using the adorable Bunny Love die. I blended in some Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Oxide inks onto some white card stock. I spritzed it with some water before die cutting out the bunnies. I then die cut the bunnies again from white card stock and inlaid them into the coloured panel. I then adhered another white layer of die cuts over the top of that to add some subtle dimension.

The sentiment is part of a sentiment from the Smitten stamp set, which is a newly released stamp set.

A simple but striking card that was fairly quick to make.
