Tag You're It Challenge 64

Hello and welcome! Today I am playing along with the Tag You're It Challenge 64. The inspiration tag for this challenge was so inspiring, I made 2 tags! The inspiration tag is just adorable! Take a look:

My first tag, I made with a valentine theme. I seem to be on a valentine's kick this weekend if you look at the previous cards I posted! I drew my inspiration from the tag to use the colors red and white. 
Here is my first tag:

The tag die is from Simon Says Stamp - one of my favorite tag dies I have. The small hearts are a Sizzix die cut. 

Please see my next post for tag # 2

Thanks for stopping by today! I'd love it if you left me a comment!
Have a great day!

Cas(E) this Sketch 206

Back again - this time with my card for Cas(E) this Sketch 206.

Here is my version of the sketch:

The cute owl stamp is from Stamping Bella. I colored the image with colored pencils.
Dies are from Lil Inker Designs and Mama Elephant.

I had my post all done and published - I couldn't figure out what I didn't like about my card. THEN I realized I had forgotten to add a sentiment! What a difference that made! LOL
Here is the 'before' picture:

The words just really add a lot.

Thanks for visiting! Stop by again soon!  - Barb

CASology week 233- Glisten

Cue word for this week's CASology challenge is Glisten! I had fun with this one as I am a lover of all things sparkly!

I dug through my stash of paper and found some sparkly paper! I went with a Valentine theme again. Hearts and glitter just seem to go so well together!

Words and heart die cuts are from Lawn Fawn. The panel die cuts are from Mama Elephant.

I ran the hearts through my sticker maker and then poured glitter over them. Hard to see how sparkly the paper is in the picture, but it does glisten in the light!

Thanks for stopping by!

Tag You're It # 63

I am participating in the Tag You're it Challenge # 63. Here is the beautiful inspiration tag:

My inspiration from this tag was to make a round tag with blue as my main color scheme.

Here is my tag:

I used my Sixxiz dies to make the tag. I used a Lil Inker Designs die to make the snow. Stamp is from Memory Box. Background was done using Distress inks in Faded jeans and Salty ocean.

I added lots of glitter to make the snow. Image is colored with colored pencils. It was fun to make a tag that was not a normal tag shape. Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you will stop by again!
