Tag You're It! Challenge #36

Good morning friends.  Hope you all had a great weekend!  It was a productive weekend for me and I finally feel like I just might get everything done! :0)  And I even had enough time to make a tag for the current TYI! challenge...even though it was at 11:00PM Saturday night!!  But anyway, Joyce has a great tag to inspire us this time around, and I used the gray, red, & blue colors as my inspiration.  Take a look:

 

I used a Casual Fridays die for my tag and SU!'s Holiday Home for the houses and Santa and his reindeer.  I started by distressing the background with Smoky Slate and Faded Jeans inks.  Next I stamped the same house 3 times on Smoky Slate cs and fussy cut just the tops of the 3 homes.  I did the same thing on Real Red cs, but only cut one and pop dotted it to the middle house.  I stamped Santa up near the top and also added a little wreath to the red house.  I used my white gel pen to add some snow to the sky, and then finished with some bakers twine and a couple jingle bells.  I love how this turned out, so thank you Joyce for the inspiration! 


This challenge just started, so hopefully your cards are done and you'll have lots of time to make some tags to go on your gifts!  You can find all the info you need to play along, and see more great inspiration from the design team right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!! :0)

  1. Fabulous tag, Marcia! I am going to try to play along with this one. I read on someones blog that they don't put names on the tags, but use all the same tag for one person, a different tag for a second person, etc...that way the kids can shake all they want, but won't know which is theirs! I might give that a try, I think it might be fun! Because you know they "count" how many they get, and oh boy if someone gets more than them, it is tears! I just have to be e to have the "master" hidden where I can remember it when it comes time to passing out the gifts!! *wink

  3. This is so beautifully done--so much detail. I love those houses and how the one in the center is clearly the most festive and important, your sponged and starry sky and, of course, Santa flying through the sky. Thanks so much for playing along at Tag You're It.
