Holidays/Travel

Hi Everybody!

Thanks to all who joined in my last challenge, must appreciated. Now our lovely and very talented Sandie is hosting, so here she is to tell you all about it! And thanks for managing the themes and dates Sandie, that is such a BIG help for me!

 Hello Everyone, it's me, Sandie and I am bringing you the theme for our challenge for the next 2 weeks.

It is that time of year isn't it, well it is in the UK, that people will be getting ready for their summer holidays and touring holidays, so I thought I would use that as my theme.

Unfortunately I am not going on holiday this year, I have an operation coming up on my hand, although saying that I have several days out planned.

I hope you will get your mojo on and get creative with my theme. Tags can be made from any medium and any size, but it must be a tag.

I shall visit each of you and leave some love, have fun...xx





Thanks for these gorgeous and inspirational tags, Sandie. 
As always our challenges run for 2 weeks, so plenty of time to get inspired!

Have a great time, take care,
and stay happy and creative!

New challenge - use a diecut

Hi Everybody! 

Today we are starting a new challenge here  and this time it's my turn to host.  First of all I would like to thank Wendy for her beautiful tags for our last challenge.

My chosen theme is 'use a diecut', but apart from that any theme on your tag is good. As always, you have 2 weeks to link your tag to our page, and I hope to see YOU there! I made a Christmas tag - actually I made several -using my deer and Christmas tree dies.  The stars were bought, and I used scraps of a paper lace doily for the 'snow'. The silver background was part of a gift box:



Here I did the same only different:



Im looking forward to seeing your tags and visiting your blogs.
Have a great time, stay safe and well,

Valerie

Include a pocket

Hi Everybody!

Thanks to Michele for hosting the last challenge, this time out lovely Wendy is hosting. Here she is to tell you all about it:

 For my theme on tag Tuesday this fortnight I have chosen to go with pockets. You can use any medium you like and include a pocket on your tag. I have put a small book in one of mine which has stamped images of the seaside and a collection of small tags with birds on, in the other. Your pocket can contain anything you like. I look forward to seeing your tags.





Thanks for all this wonderful inspiration, Wendy! Now it's over to you - you have 2 weeks to link to us and show us yyour tags!

Have fun!

Add some stencilling

 

Hi Everybody!

Thanks to Sandie who hosted the last challenge and to all who linked their beautiful creations to us. Today we are starting a new challenge and this time our lovely and talented Pinky is hosting. Here she is to tell you all about it:

'Hi everyone.

My chosen theme this time is

add some stencilling.

I have just recently got into stencilling and have

really enjoyed it

So my first tag is this one and I have gone with a

black base and stencilled directly onto it using some

embossing paste.

I used the stencil again to make smaller flowers

and finished with an embossed sentiment and gems.


For my second tag I used a layering stencil
onto white card. Then stamped a sentiment
and finished with a bow.


I hope you get time to join my theme this fortnight.'

Thanks for these wonderful and inspirational tags Pinky. As always, our challenges run for 2 weeks and tags of all formats are welcome. Whateever you do, have fun and stay safe!

Animals, Tame or Wild, no Insects.

 Hello Everyone, it's Sandie here and I am bringing you the theme for our challenge for the next 2 weeks.

I have chosen Animals, Tame or Wild, but not Insects.

I, like a lot of people, love animals, having had many as family pets over the years. I have often preferred animals to people.




I hope plenty of you will join in, as always any medium is acceptable, but it must be a tag.

Have fun everyone...x

Thanks for these great,  inspirational tags, Sandie!
And have a great week!

Bingo/numbers

Hi Everybody!

First of all I would like to thanks Sandie for hosting our last challenge,  and for her help with the blog admin. Today our lovely Pinky is hosting, and here she is to tell you all about her challenge:

 "Hi there everyone, it's Pinky here and my chosen theme is Bingo/numbers!

When Sandie mentioned my theme would start on 22/2/22 it just made me

think of BINGO! So I hope you come along and play with some numbers.

My original idea was to use a certain stamp set which I searched for for ages

and could not find so I had to made do with what I had.


For my first tag I went with the slang call outs
Bingo halls use. Not that I have ever been to a bingo hall,
sadly lol. But it always makes me smile what they come up with.


My second tag uses this fun bingo lady from Bugaboo.
She has been coloured up and I added the bingo players prayer
just for good measure!"

Thanks for these fab tags, Pinky, they are a great inspiration.
As always our challenges run for 2 weeks and tags of all formats are welcome. And just for fun I am scheduling the post to go live at 2:22 a.m.! Have fun, stay safe,
Valerie

 Hello Everyone, Welcome to our challenge that will run for the next 2 weeks.

I'm Sandie, one of the design team here at Tag Tuesday and it's my turn to host the challenge.

You are free to chose to use Real or Fantasy Royals, just enjoy yourself, let your imagination run free.




Any medium and size is acceptable, but it must be a Tag.
Have fun
Hugs
Sandie x

Use fabric on it!

  Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge and our lovely and talented Wendy is hosting. Her theme is 'use fabric on it'. This means you an use any theme, but your tag must have some fabric on it. Thanks to Michele who hosted our last challenge. Now over to Wendy to tell you all about her challenge:

' For my theme for the next two weeks, I would like you to Add some fabric to your tag' It can be any type or amount, as long as there is some on your tag it will be fine. Your background can be anything, card, fabric, cardboard, any substrate you like. All mine are on card, with the last one mounted on another tag covered fabric. You don't even have to sew it it on, glue is fine. Mine are all sewing based, but you can use any subject you like. I look forward to seeing your tags. Happy New Year to everyone.'





Thanks for these inspirational tags,Wendy. I look forward to seeing your tags. As always you have 2 weeks to join us.

Take care and have fun creating!

Anything Christmas

 Hi, it's Pinky here with my chosen theme of  'anything Christmas'.

I am sure, like me,  you still need a few tags to finish off the presents!!

So for my first tag I have gone with Santa. Perfect for my youngest Grandson.

I have used reds and blues for this one and I love the striped paper

behind him. Santa has been stamped, coloured and fussy cut.


For my second tag I had a bit of fun masking
and making a stencilled background.
I then just stamped my trees, stars and a sentiment.
Quick and easy!

I hope you get time to join my theme this fortnight.

Fabulous tags Pinkie, enjoy your time hosting, and thanks for the wonderful inspiration!

Window, doors and arches.

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday, and this time our lovely and talented Wendy is hosting. Thanks to all who entered the last challenge, it was a pleasure to view your lovely creations. As always we welcome tags of all formats, and you have 2 weeks to join us! Now here is Wendy to tell you about her challenge:

 'For my theme this fortnight I have chosen Windows, doors and arches. You can choose from any one of these or more. Any media you like as long as at least one features on them. I have made three to give you some inspiration. The first one I coloured with ink and stamped some bricks. I stamped the door and coloured that with distress inks. I added some die cut ivy and some flowers from a magazine. The second one I drew and water-colored the stone archway and the gardener and cut out a garden scene from a magazine.  The third one the stone wall was cut out of wallpaper ( not one that was on the wall) and stuck on a coloured background. I stamped the door and the quote and added some small keys. I look forward to seeing what you do."




Thanks Wendy, for these beautiful tags, they are very inspirational.
I think we will all have fun playing with this theme.
Have a great week, have fun,
Valerie
