Not sure if I will actually make any card today, so here’s another old but not yet posted tag. 🙂
Another tag from a while back.
I know. I don’t post much. And I don’t create much. Here’s one of a few tags I made quite some time ago.
I’m awfully late with posting my creation for Through The Purple Haze challenge #125 – Anything goes. I’ve had my mom here visiting me for a week. During this week we were also away from home for a few days, visiting Malmö and Copenhagen. I didn’t want to spend much time by my computer while she was here, so all blogging and other online stuff or editing photos was put on hold.
Anyway, here I am now. My creation for the TTPH challenge is a tag. I joined a Facebook group for trading artist trading cards and tags. I have never really worked much with the tag format (#8, 3 1/8″ x6 1/4″ or European measure 8×16 cm). I liked it, and will make loads more tags for trading in that group and probably also to sell in my Etsy shop.
For this tag, I used an old chicken and egg paper from Forma Hantverk. Both the Glad Påsk (Swedish for Happy Easter) sentiment and the chickens are clear stamps from Slöjd-Detaljer. Unfortunately these stamps are no longer available, but we have several other clear stamp sets. The chickens are designed by the extremely talented Johanna – it doesn’t matter what kind of craft she tries, everything she makes turn out great. 😀
I submit my tag to the following challenges:
Inspired by the elegant tag at Tag You’re It challenge #56, I stamped and embossed Tack (Swedish for Thanks) on an embossed paper from SEI that I have literally had for years, and mounted it on shiny golden cardstock. Stamp is from a clear stamp set from Slöjd-Detaljer.
I found a new (to me) challenge blog, Tag You’re It! with challenges for making tags instead of the more common card challenges. I find that a great idea, because I hardly ever make tags, and this might help me make more of them.
Here’s my tag for the challenge that ends today. In about half an hour to be precise, and yes, I’m an expert on doing things in the very last minute. Anyway, I used a piece of heart paper from BoBunny’s Calendar Girl Collection and alphabet rub-ons from Panduro.
