Tag you're it...........

Hey there,

long time no post...........

I do hope you are all well and you're all busy crafting.

As the title of the post says, Tag you're it, I thought it would be fun to have a tag hop.

If you would like to join in. Leave a comment with a link to your blog where you have posted some tags. ( I have not worked out how  you can leave a link on my post. If you know how, feel free to tell me, as I have not got a clue!)

So here are my latest tags, actually I'll be honest with you, I made them a few weeks ago.

This tag was created using Distress stain in Antique linen, Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive, I have used a Stencil by Crafters Workshop on the background and Various Tim Holtz Stamps.
 The bird had been cut from card, that was covered with Tissue Tape first, coloured in Fired Brick and then Stickles Glitter. I then made a Tissue Tape flower and adhered a vintage MOP button in the centre, using good old Glossy Accents then gave it a quick spray with Perfect Pearl Spray.
In my rather large stash I found some Tulle and some Tinsel string. The white splotches were stamped using Picket Fence distress Stains.

Tissue Tape, Tulle and Tinsel

 This Tag was created by using a resist technique for the background, I heat embossed the large TH background stamp from Papilion, then used Fired Brick and aged mahogany over the background.
 I cut two hearts from the Sizzix die Primitive Hearts, Coloured again using Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany, embossed with a Sizziz folder on the largest one and stamped on the smallest one using the delightful Metallic Stains in Pewter.
I coloured some Cotton Lace using the Distress Stain in Antique Line and adhered that down one side, Pleated some Tissue Tape along the bottom adhered my hearts and added some Dyed Seam Binding and a Metal Token through the hole at the top. As a final flourish I edged the tag with some Crafty Notions gilding wax.

Hearts, Lace and Heavy Metal

 On this Tag, I stained the tag in Tumbled Glass then stamped a TH Christmas Carol stamp on one side.

I then took a Snowflake stencil and applied some Glue n Seal and sprinkled Rock Candy dry Glitter and left to dry.

Using self adhesive Canvas, I die cut a Deer and stained it using Antique Linen and gently edged using Walnut stain.

I Stamped Happy Holidays and heat embossed in clear powder, then applied Crafty Notions gilding wax over the top.

Along the bottom of the tag I added a small strip of Vintage music paper and a row of Pearl String.
Sparkle, Pearls and Music

I do hope you have enjoyed my tags and i really hope you willl join in and tag your own creations.
