Tag Tuesday Challenge #57 - Postage

Louise's challenge this week is to use Postage on the Tag.  I really wanted to play since I made a tag last week and didn't share it as it didn't work out the way I had planned.

I actually used some postage from a package that Deborah sent me from Canada. I had some lovely stamps from Indonesia that I was going to use but these worked with the colors better.  The bell and Forever are from a package of stamps we purchased. They include a large sticker that emulates the stamp and I cut it up and used the images.

The train image is from some Graphics 45 paper that I purchased with tags. I loved the colors and decided to create a coordinating tag. I started with an ivory tag and added red, orange and brown distressing to emulate the Graphics 45 paper.  The map is a Hero Arts stamp which I love and don't get to use often enough.

I also wanted to share a card I made for the Card Patterns Sketch and for the Cards Blog challenge this week.  I unfortunately missed the deadline for the Card Patterns challenge. :(



This is for my youngest DD birthday. She has a July birthday and thinks any red, white and blue card for the 4th of July is for her. So I like to make her a card with the 4th of July mixed in.

Sorry I haven't been around to visit. I have been having issues with my wrists due to too much typing for work, so I have been taking a little of a break from commenting. I will try to get around soon!

Thanks for stopping by...

  1. What a gorgeous card for your DD. That's really special Sue! The tag is great too.

    I remember having a similar problem with my wrists years ago - Repetative Strain Injury and boy, does that constant pain set your teeth on edge. It's always lovely to get your visits and comments but they'll wait. Take care and lots of hugs.

  4. The tag is so rich! There's just something special about a dark border around an already-deep rich color. Wonderful use of that Forever stamp, as well as the beautiful Canadian one.
