Simon Says.........Tag It!

wed-newchallenge-header

Hi, friends, happy Wednesday!  It's time for another weekly challenge at our Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Our theme this week is TAG IT!!  It's a favorite of mine, because I love to see the creative ideas that end up on all your tags!  The design team are all using Tim Holtz products this week, and if you have any of his products, please show them off to us, but it's not a requirement to enter; just make some kind of a tag, or add a tag to your project.  

When I turn the calendar over to September, I go into instant fall mode, so I wanted to make a tag that had an autumnal feel to it.  And the sentiment really sums up how I feel about this season!

SSS Sept 17

I started with a piece of kraft cardstock and made it into a tag shape.  Next I chose a musical paper from Tim's Menagerie paper stash, and trimmed it to fit just inside my tag.  Then I stencilled his Gothic Layering Stencil across the panel, using ripe persimmon, rusty hinge, and spiced marmalade distress inks.  I also used the ripe persimmon to dye some of his crinkle ribbon, and I added one of his little paper clips to hold my sentiment to my tag.  Other supplies: Perched Reed Bird die, Simon's Small Forest Tree,  both cut from Tim Holtz kraft core, a Unity sentiment, Lawn Fawn copper leaf sequins, and some gold dotted washi tape.

Now it's your turn!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher

  18. Lynn, there is a stamp that you've used in the past that I really love: I've looked through your posts for 2014 and haven't found it. It is a silhouette of either a dandelion or Queen Ann's Lace. Can you remember which one that is and let me know the company name and the stamp name or style #? Thank you so much!!!! Hugs H

  19. Your tag caught my eye on pinterest and instantly made me smile (it also made me long for my craft room). It's lovely, Lin! Hope you are staying warm on this very cold Ohio day :-)

  20. I don't really need to ask permission but I think it's only polite to. Lin, would you mind if I used your theme/idea/photo to make something fairly similar but larger as a wall plaque, both for a friend and for myself?

    I don't have a blog so it's not likely I'll post what I make. And I might not make it till later this year after I move. But I really like this and was surprised when I found out this was *just* a tag and not larger after I saw it on Pinterest! It's lovely!!
