Easing Back In {Tag You're It}

I was away on vacation last week with my family. We had a great week at the beach, it was hard to come home. I did a great job of stamping like crazy before I left so I would have a few things to show on my blog while I was away (and to prepare for a few things coming up), but I forgot about the week after I got home. Hence, why I missed the Sweet Sunday Sketch yesterday. boo!  BUT....... I needed to show something  new today and jump back into stamping. It's good to take a break, but I love getting crafty again. 

The Reverse Confetti July release is almost here and I need to get busy with my samples. You're gonna LOOOOOVE what's coming! Today, I am easing back into my mojo with the new, cool Tag You're It challenge blog. It's a mini challenge this go round and it was perfect for kick starting my mojo. 


I pulled out the Tag Me die from RC and used it to make my main image panel. I love tags. I love this die, so this challenge is right up my alley.  I was inspired by the gradient of colors on the tag and the beach theme. I cut the tag twice to get a double layer of tag goodness. 

I used the super sweet and my first ever RC stamp set, Happy Harbor. I stamped the sentiment twice, first on the tag and then again on a die cut heart from Love Note. I carefully lined up the heart to match the sentiment on the tag. 



I added a sweet row of anchors in the same color ink (Brand New colors from Fresh Ink. LOVE! this is Teal). I carried out the beach theme further by adding lots of pretty mini 4mm Sand sequins. How great are those??!!! Sure make me happy!

here's the inspiration photo for the Tag You're It challenge:

There is also a new Catered Crop Recipe Swap up-Summer Lovin'! This card fits the bill for me. Pretty beachy colors, those sand colored sequins and a nautical theme. Totally summer lovin'! Make a card and join the fun. All the details are HERE on Linda's blog. 


Here are the Reverse Confetti Products I used. 






Thanks for stopping by today. I've got exciting news coming up.......Check back!
