Tag You're It Challenge #84

Hello friends.  So excited to be the Guest Designer for the current challenge at Tag You're It!  If you've followed me for any length of time, you know I LOVE making tags, and this challenge gives me the opportunity to make tags all year long instead of just at Christmas!


This challenge is definitely for all you COFFEE LOVER'S out there!  Unfortunately, I am NOT a coffee lover (as Laura Bassen says, "tastes like hot dirt"!), but 2 of our 3 daughter's LOVE coffee, so my tag will be going to one of them...maybe along with a Starbucks gift card??


I started with a Reverse Confetti tag die and cut it from Kraft cs and then sponged the edges with Early Espresso (SU!) ink...fitting, don't you think?!  My sentiment and coffee cup come from a little set by Gina K called Perfect Blend.  I stamped the cup in Early Espresso ink and then paper pieced the saucer with Hawaiian Shores Bitty Big DSP and colored the cup with my Copics (BG11 & BG13).  The spoon was colored with a Gelly Roll Clear Star pen which looks like a sparkly cross between gold and silver and really shimmers and shines IRL!  I used a little WOS on the coffee and steam, so that adds to the sparkle and shine of this tag too!

I was definitely inspired by the rich warm brown tones of the coffee and the color of the saucer in the inspiration photo.  What inspires YOU with this photo??  Check out how the rest of the DT was inspired and then play along right HERE.



Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  4. Congrats on Guest Designing at TYI! I'll definitely play along this time! That tag shape is wonderful, Marcia. The inky edges in Espresso (perfect) really highlight the shape. Sweet little Gina K. cup set too. And right after polka dots, and stripes, I love gingham! Sweet ribbon!! Have a great weekend. Bev
