JustRite Challenge #077

Hello Everyone,

Sorry, I haven't been around for awhile, but I've been in such a crafting funk. I just couldn't find the energy or desire to create anything. But, fortunately I didn't loose the desire to buy more crafting supplies. To pull myself out of this funk, I decided to join in on JustRite's "Tag You're It" Challenge. For this challenge, we have to Create a custom tag or use a tag in your project.  Well, I've always had a difficult time creating tags, I don't know why, but they never turn out the way I hoped.  You may also remember me saying this year I would be trying new techniquest, and get out of my comfort zone with my crafts.  Well I've kept my resolution and tried something with this tag. Can you guess the new technique I tried? Well here's my tag for the "Tag You're It" challenge".

Well to start off, I distressed and inked the edges of the base tag and patterned paper.

The sentiment and frame were stamped with JustRite stamps and cutout with a Spellbinders' die. I also stamped the tiny butterflies (with JustRite stamps) onto patterned paper and fussy cut them out by hand.  I dyed some trim to match the patterned paper. The flower and leaves were made using some Spellbinders' dies.

 If you guessed that the new technique I tried was the stick pin, you were right. I was inspired by Becca Feeken who sent me a set of her beautiful pins that I won on her blog.  After seeing a tutorial by Sabrina on the Our Daily Bread blog, I finally tried making some. I found that the pins were so fun and simple to make. Thank you Becca and Sabrina for being such an inspiration.

The two larger flowers and leaves were made using dies. I purchased the three smaller flower and the pearl spray.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you liked my tag.  Hopefully my crafting funk is completely over soon. I miss crafting and sharing my projects with all of you.

I'll blog with you later, and have a blessed day.

WOW -- I'm hoping now for a funk, so I can come up with a tag at least half as GORGEOUS as this STUNNER! Seriously, Regina, this is breathtakingly beautiful!!! So glad you're doing challenges again -- it's what makes me create a lot of the time, honestly! I'm not crazy about doing tags either, so I'll have to see IF I can pull one off! Great job -- TFS!!!
