Tag Tuesday: Black and White and All Stitched Up

I so appreciate your kind comments during my unexpected absence.  The concern of my blog pals means so much. I've fallen behind lately with Tag Tuesday and decided to catch up before tomorrow's Inspired Sunday blog party by meeting this week's challenge with a quick and simple chalkboard tag.

The base of the tag is thin black chipboard that I bought online at JoAnn.com. I scraped one side of a regular piece of chalk to make it flat and then rubbed it across the surface. Next I stamped a variety of snowflakes and the sentiment in white embossing ink and heat-embossed with fine embossing powder.  I plan to make a lot more of these for gifts this year!

I also forgot to post this stitched tag that I created a few weeks ago -- seems like a lifetime ago! Time flies and creeps simultaneously...


I hope you are having a great kick-off weekend to the holidays, and I hope to see you tomorrow for Inspired Sunday!

Your stitched tag is stunning! The red really pops against the lovely patterns. I would love to have this in a quilt. Just gorgeous.
Happy weekend,
Kate

The colourful one was obviously a lot of work... But I also like the simplicty of the black and white one!

The chalkboard tag is so on trend but it is the stitched tag that I find to be so incredible, the precision on this tag is remarkable.
