SHOPPING OUR STASH #282 - Tag, You're It

Hello crafty friends and welcome! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we'd like to see you make a tag. It could be a stand alone tag, any theme or holiday, maybe an element added to a card, it's all good! Here's my tag:

I made a tag out of white card stock using a couple dies from the CUTplorations ATC Tag builder die set. I sponged over it in Iced Spruce DI, then using a stencil, sponged over again in Pine Needle DI. I stamped the sentiment onto the tag. The image was stamped, colored in Prismacolor pencils, fussy cut, and adhered with foam squares. I added a few sequins and ribbon, then decided it needed twine as well. With jingle bells tied to the bow. Much better! LOL! I'm still deciding if I should stamp "To: and From:" on the back side, or just add it to a card. We shall see. ☺

I hope you get a chance in the mad Holiday rush to play along with our tag challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH! We'd love to see what you create! For more inspiration, do visit the blogs of my teammies, and our December Guest Designer, Beth (a.k.a. Myoriah) and leave them some bloggy lovin!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
