January TAGplorations

Hello Crafty Friends!

Happy New Year! It's 1st of January 2019 and it's also the first Tuesday in January and the start of a new TAGplorations Challenge over at STAMPlorations.

The theme for November is: All About Winter
The optional twist is: to use Texture Paste

Well, as you can see, I've gone all out for the optional twist of texture paste.

I cut a tag from a piece of card I had used to mop up some ink from my craft mat. I then used some texture paste through the Dots All Over stencil and sprinkled it with glitter to make my dots sparkle.

Whilst the paste was drying, I did some stamping using the Winter Chill set, colouring and fuzzy cutting before assembling my tag and finishing off with a bit of silver ribbon.

If you love tags, why not give it a go and play along? Your project can be anything as long as it features a tag. You can enter as many projects as you want, but one per blog post please, and you don't have to use STAMPlorations products, yet we'd be thrilled if you would. There is currently a free winter/holiday image to download at STAMPlorations Never ending Anything Goes Challenge here. Please check out the full revised challenge guidelines here on the STAMPlorations Blog.

One lucky winner, voted for by the DT, will win a $15 STAMPlorations gift certificate and 3 randomly picked players will win a $5 STAMPlorations gift certificate each.

Ready for more tagtastic inspiration? Pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to see the gorgeous projects my teamies created and, of course, to link up your tag project/s too.

That's it from me for today. Have a lovely week.
