Cut It Up Tag! You're It! Challenge

I must apologize as this post should have been up on Friday morning. We were on vacation with our two grandchildren visiting The Redwood National Forest and just got back late last night. I had forgotten to schedule this before we left.


Our new challenge over at Cut It Up is Tag! You're it!

Create any project that is a tag or contains a tag.  Don't forget the die cut!


Our sponsor for this challenge is CAS-ual Friday Stamps. You have a chance to win a $15 certificate to their store and a Scallop Tag die set!





For my project I used two die sets by CAS-ual Friday stamps, Jumping Jacks Fri-dies and Tag Buddies Fri-dies, which CAS-ual Fridays so generously provided.

The Jumping Jacks dies also reminded me of plaint splatters, and I chose to go with that thought when creating my card.




For the background of my card I put ink drops on watercolor paper, added just a drop of water and blew through a straw to push the ink around and create my splatters. Then I die cut splatters in coordinating colors with the Jumping Jacks Fri-die. 

I stamped my sentiment on a tag cut out with my Tag Buddies Fri-die and added a few Splatters to that.




Supplies Used: card stock - white, pink, purple, aqua; water color paper; Dies from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps; Posh Rainbow Inks; sentiment stamp by Inkadinkado; Ribbon from my stash.

I can't wait to see your creation so pop on over to the Cut It Up blog and join us in the fun!
