Colours

Hi Evervbody! 

This fortnight Valerie - that's me - is hosting the challenge here and her theme is

Colours

First of all I would like to thank Michele, who hosted our lovely 'cats' challenge, and Sandie, who has spent a lot of time keeping the blog going and updating it very nicely. I am  not able to do much these days, and very happy that Sandie is keeping it going. As always, our challenges run for 2 weeks, and of course, we want to see tags! 

I have  3 tags to show today:

Feathers are one of my favourite themes. These were stamped and then coloured with water colours- I like to keep to a limited colour palette, but you can enjoy any riot of colours that you like!


Those who know me will recognise my favourite drink! I did some sewing and added lace, which was coloured with coffee. The coffee glass was made with a paper napkin:


Andx a colourful tag with hot colours:


Here's wishing you all lots of fun, and I am looking forwardx to sseeing your 
colourful tags:

Have a great day, take care,
And thanks a lot for coming by!

CATS

Hi Everyone, 

Many thanks to all that played along with Pinky's theme of Birds the last 2 weeks.

We want to give you all a heads up that we have made a couple of changes to our challenge.

If you look across to the right sidebar you will be able to find the next challenge theme. We thought that by doing that you can make your tags in advance.

We are also introducing a new Badge for you.

 As you know everyone involved in Tag Tuesday chooses a theme, at the end of each challenge the designer will choose their  "Challenge Favourite"

So now on to this fortnights challenge, hosted by Michele, here she is to tell you all about it.

"I'm the DT host for the next two weeks and my theme is cats! Even though I do not currently have cat friends at home, I love cats and they also make a fan theme for crafting. I hope you'll join in and have fun with this challenge! "




Images from a variety of sources. Please play along! 

Please link up your entry in the usual way.

Birds

Hello Everyone, it seems everyone enjoyed the Anything Goes theme that we had for the last 2 weeks. We certainly had a lot of gorgeous Tags, so a huge Thank You to all of you that played along. 

For the next 2 weeks we have Pinky hosting with her theme, we hope you will play along.

Hi there, it's my turn Pinky to choose the theme and I would love to see Birds

or anything Bird related on your tags this fortnight.


For my first tag I have gone with a hanging birdhouse.


The birdhouse is die cut with loads of different dies
and then assembled. I stamped the bird and flowers and
layered them up on the front. The sentiment was added
and I finished it off with a little die cut bow.

I did another birdhouse for my second tag.
Again I used the same die set and stamp set
and had great fun assembling it all together.


This time I put the bird inside the house
and a row of little flowers to decorate her home.

Have fun with the theme and do drop by and leave some love on Pinky's blog.xx

Spring flowers

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge here at Tag Tuesday, and dear Valerie is hosting - that's me! Thanks to dear Michele who hosted the last 2 weeks with her theme of Gothic /Gothic arches. My choice for the next 2 weeks is spring flowers, and I think we have plenty of choice just now. Here in Rhineland where I live the flowers are bursting out everywhere, it's great to see their wonderful colours.



I hope to add new tags in the course of the next 2 weeks. I am doing my best, but am still in hospital.

And I hope to see lots of you joining in,
Hugs
Valerie

Gothic Arch or Gothic theme.

Hello Everyone, time for another fun challenge here at Tag Tuesday.

A big Thank You to teamie Pinky for her theme over the last 2 weeks.

This fortnight we have teamie Michele's theme, here she is to tell you about it...

I'm Michele, the DT host for the next two weeks and my theme is gothic arches, so what does that mean? 

"A gothic arch is an arch with a pointed crown that meets at an angle at the top of the arch, it can be more pointed or more round, this architectural element was particularly important in gothic architecture. I'm choosing to make my tags in the shape of a gothic arch, but for this challenge you are welcome to just create a tag on a gothic theme, I want to make it easy for you to play!"





Images are from Tim Holtz, Gecko Galz, and a variety of images cut from various retired Mischief Circus Kits and then random items from my stash of goodies!

So to recap, join us by making a tag either in the shape of a gothic arch or on a gothic theme generally, thank you very much.x

Bunny or Hare, I don't care...


Hello Folks, time again for another challenge, but first I have to say Thank You to all of you that played along with my Asemic Writing theme. I loved all the entries.
Here is Pinky to tell you about her theme...

Hi, it's Pinky here and my theme for the next two weeks is
Bunny/Hare!
As it's Easter this month I have gone with that theme
for my bunny rabbits.

For my first tag I have cut a floral oval from a paper pack
and used it for the tag shape.
I stamped and coloured up my bunny.
Gave him a nice string bow and added the sentiment.


For my second tag I cut the tag shape then punched two holes
for my bunnies to peep out of.
I embossed this for added texture.
I lined the back with some gingham paper.
The bunnies, butterfly and carrot were stamped, coloured
and cut and placed under the raised tag.
I then finished with a sentiment and some ribbon.


I hope you get time to join us this fortnight.

Asemic Writing

 Hi Everyone, it's Sandie here and I am hosting the challenge for the next 2 weeks.

First I must Thank Valerie for her theme for the last challenge, it was very popular, so it was nice to see so  many entries.

I am hoping you will enjoy my theme Asemic Writing. 

( Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing.

The word asemic means "having no specific content" or "without the smallest unit of meaning" )

How many of us have seen this type of script and not know what it was, I didn't, I have to admit I googled it!



I do hope my tags will inspire you to join us over the next 2 weeks.

Have Fun.xx

Valentine's day is coming nearer....

Hi Everybody!

First of all I would like to thanks Michele for her Marie Antoinette challenge in the last fortnight. This time it's my turn to post and I have chosen Valentine's Day as my challenge. As always, you  have 2 weeks to join us and link your tag(s), and tags of all formats and styles are welcome. But it must be a tag!

I painted 2 large sheets of watercolour paper with a mix of purple, dark pink, white and some splatters  in silver and gold, and used them to die cut hearts, strips and other bits and bods, and then set to work to put them together. I used all sorts of tag shapes and just had fun. I am showing three today and will be back in the course of the week to add some more. And I am very much looking forward to seeing your tags!

The first one is a sort of 'Victorian' valentine with lace, flowers and hearts:


Gold card from a choclolate box (I ate them specially for you so I could use the card!), some paint, feathers, stars, a heart and wings and some flowers:


A gifted tag, to which I added silver stars with a stencil, and once again hearts and wings cut from my ainted paper: 


I am very much looking forward to seeing your tags and visiting your blogs, so keep spreading love and be kind to one another! 

Have a great week, take care,
And thanks a lot for coming by!

Marie Antoinette

Hello Everyone, many thanks to Pinky for our last challenge, there were some lovely entries.

Michele is our host for this challenge and she has an interesting theme too, so we hope you will like it and play along. Here she is to tell you about it....

My chosen theme for the next two weeks is "Marie Antoinette." Marie Antoinette is a historical figure, the last queen of France before the French Revolution. Known for being frivolous and extravagant, she nevertheless makes an excellent subject for creating. Here are a few samples to encourage folks to play along.





My Marie images come from lunagirl, most of the backgrounds are from gecko galz. I hope you will create along with us!

Please link your entry below.
Have fun.x

Something New!

Welcome to our first challenge for 2024.

We hope you all will join in with Pinky's theme, it looks fun.

 Hi everyone, it's Pinky here.

My chosen theme for the next fortnight is

New beginnings/craft stuff etc. Anything new.

For my first tag I have gone with the new year.

I used a new stamp set and strips of paper which I also stamped on,

for my background.

I am going to use these in my albums though which is why

I made them a little big bigger.


For my second tag I have gone with an old photo of my late Mum.
The flowers have been stamped but barely coloured.
I used a brand new stamp set for all the little bits
which I bought specifically for scrapbooking.


Please link your tags in the usual way.

Have Fun xxx

Snow Tags

Pinky here popping in to share the new theme.

Unfortunately Valerie is under the weather at the minute.

Her chosen theme for this fortnight's challenge is SNOW!

I have one tag made and an oldie from a while

back which I hope will inspire you to have a go.


My first one is a shaker tag!
I thought my youngest Grandson would get a
kick out of this and the cute penguin would make
anyone smile!!


My second one has lots of embossed snowflakes
and this cute little  snowman dancing around in them.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Words/Sentiments

Hi Everybody!

It's time for a new challenge and this time our lovely pinky is hosting with a great theme. As always our challenges run for 2 weeks and tags of all formats are welcome. So, over to Pinky:

Hi, it's Pinky here and my chosen theme this fortnight is

add words and/or sentiments to your tags. Easy right?

I have gone with Christmas tags as I am way behind this year!

For my first tag I have used a gorgeous background paper

which really did all the work for me and I just stamped

some snowflakes, added some little white dots and stamped

the sentiment to add on top. The top has had a fringe added

to finish it off.


For my second tag I have used the same papers again
but this time the tree scene.
I stamped snowflakes again and added some stars to the trees.
The sentiment was stamped then cut up and layered on card.


I'm off to make some more😁

Gorgeous tags, Pinky! Now we want to see YOUR lovely tags, so keep them coming!

Valerie

This time our lovely Wendy is hosting, and with a theme that we all like - Haloween! As always you have 2 weeks to join us and tags of all sizes and formats are welcome.

Thanks to our wonderful DT sister Sandie who made such lovely tags for the last challenge, and to all who joined in. Hope to see you here again this time round. And this is what Wendy has to say:

Wendy K here from wendyscraftjournal and my theme for the next fortnight is Halloween, a bit late but I love the bright colours that come with Autumn and Halloween and enjoy working with my Halloween stamps at least once a year.  They all have distress inked backgrounds with stamped and die cut images. You can use any media you like, and I look forward to seeing what you do.



Thanks for these great tags, Wendy! Hoping to see lots of you joining in again, and above all - have fun!

A Form of Transport

 Hello Everyone, it's Sandie here, first I must Thank You all for the fabulous tags that you entered for Valerie's theme Autumn Colours.

This fortnight it is my choice of theme, A Form of Transport it can be vintage or modern, whatever takes your fancy.

For my tags I went mono, with another colour. However the photos aren't great as the white seems either blue or grayish, sorry about that, must be to do with the light, or type of card I have used.

The Red Truck


The Red Bus

I hope you will play along, remember a form of transport can be land, sea or air, just have fun.

Hugs Sandie x
