Tag! You're It!!!! Blog Hop


Remember playing tag as a kid? Chasing, running, tagging....what fun. And what a great way to run off energy. Gee, I wish I had kept that energy for later (NOW) use!! LOL!!! I sure could use it.


Today, we're playing blog tag. Hopefully, you came here from Trudy Sjolander's blog. If not, head back over to Lori's blog to get started on the hop.



We're introducing a fantastic new die set and 2 ... yep, *2* coordinating stamp sets! How cool is that?!


My first card shows the wonderful new Tabs & Tags die set. There is SO much you can do with these dies ... so many combinations with which to create. FUN!

The dies were used in the bottom corner here. Layered in white and blue. January ... perfect time for a snowflake theme, right? :) Of course, I live in Georgia, so it's not likely that I will see any of the real snowflakes.





Stamps - Tabs & Tags (snowflake)
Paper - blue, white
Ink - blue
Accessories - Tabs & Tags dies, ribbon, crystals, Cuttlebug, folder, pop dots







Yes, I know that Christmas is over, but we ALWAYS need to think about our Christmas cards, don't we? Well, this is an easy, fun card for the holiday. The bottom green layer on the bottom set of dies is stamped with one of the stamps from Tabs & Tags Additions, and another one is used on the white die behind the top green layer.



Stamps - Tabs & Tags Additions, Merry Christmas
Paper - $1 pack from Target, red, green, white
Ink - green, versamark, Memento black
Accessories - Tabs & Tags dies, silver cord, clear dots, pop dots







The little tag hanging on this card was made by cutting off the end of one of the die cuts. Makes a perfect little tag for your card! Behind the sentiment (from Tabs & Tags stamp set - as well as the adorable butterfly) is a great little pattern for the dies. It's from the Tabs & Tags Additions stamp set.

The big flower was colored with Copics. Worked great with the colors in that background paper, don't you think?! Love it. Behind the flower is a layer cut with the Cricut and embossed with the Cuttlebug and script folder.




Stamps - Tabs & Tags Additions, Tabs & Tags
Paper - Paper Slab, gray, caramel, white
Ink - caramel, brown, Memento black, Copics (E04, Y26)
Accessories - Tabs & Tags dies, ribbon (Ripe Olive), pearls, twine, Cuttlebug, folder, Cricut, SCAL, glitter pen, pop dots, flowers, brad
Technique - aging



I TOLD you the new stuff was awesome!

  47. Great use of the tags Shell! Love all of your cards! The snow one is probably my favorite, but then again I live in Montana and can look out any window & see the beautiful snow. I used to live in Oklahoma, and can totally relate to your comment on not seeing any real snowflakes. The Christmasy card is also great, our tree is still up & currently lit up! Think it will come down tomorrow.
