An Altered Tag by Pinquette Hillary

Hey Everyone! I hope you all had a fun and safe holiday weekend, and hopefully got to spend time with family and friends. I first want to take a moment and honor all the people who have fought or are currently fighting for our country, because that is what Memorial day is truly about. I pray that all the soldiers over there return home safely to their families!

Now to my post today…I made my tag for the Pinque Peacock Challenge Blog which you should all check out HERE and you can enter as well to win some very nice goodies :). Well the challenge this month has been altered tags and I decided to play around a lot with mine.

  Here is my Altered tag that I made...
 

I had this amazingly awesome Peacock Fabric Splendid Swirl that is from the Pinque Peacock Shop.
The gold Tissue Paper and Sticky Gems are also a wonderful product I ordered through the Shop.

It's nice and bright over here in South Louisiana a/k/a New Orleans so I thought I would make a bright card.  LOL 
 
I started with an A2 white card base added a orange layer and then a yellow layer that was ran through my crimper!  I added some awesome WASHI Tape along with a handmade Splendid Swirl, a fabric covered button as the center of my flower and of course a beautiful Angel Stick Pin, which can all be found in the Pinque Peacock store.  Yep, the Washi Tape too!  Then to complete my card, I added a butterfly brad along with some bling and a sweet sentiment from K Andrews!

A Screen Card!!!

Hi It's PINQUETTE Laura here from sunny Ontario! (finally)
Today I made a retirement card for you.
It's a screen card.
I haven't done the sentiment yet
as I want something special but I havne't
found just the right one yet.
I used a yellow gingham splendid swirl.
(they come in two sizes and lots of fabrics!)
 
 

It is very plain but I was looking for rustic.

************

The back side of the card was embossed then
white washed then stamped.

 

The back side of the card was embossed then

The front was modge podged with a napkin
(which you can't see at all) and then all kinds
of mediums on it.. finally stamped.
I love these screen cards but I think I
will make the next one shorter.
Hope you like my card and if
you have any ideas for sentiments for this card
come and see me at the my blog

Altered Tag with CUTE New Products from *3 Girl JAM*

HAPPY MONDAY FRIENDS!

Jessica here sharing my Altered Tag I created for my Designer Day with 3 Girl JAM  in hopes to inspire you to JOIN our Fun Altered Tag Challenge <~~CLICK HERE to be taken to the post at Pinque Peacock Challenges & Link Ups!

I am happy to share some of the fabulous NEW PRODUCTS available at 3 Girl JAM with all of you today!  I will also be linking up at the 3GJ Challenge Blog and hope you will join the Current 3 Girl JAM Challenge - ANYTHING GOES with Ribbon 

This tag was created in a matter of minutes and I didn't feel the need to add to much to it, since the wonderful New Products did a great job on their own! First you will see some of the NEW Texture Ribbon Flower Bundle used.  
I had already misted this tag a few weeks ago and had it sitting on my table to create with.   I opted to use the Pink Flower Texture Ribbon on the top and bottom of the tag.
The NEW Tie Dye Crinkle Ribbon Bundles are CUTE, CUTE, CUTE.   I used  both of the colors from Tie Dye Bundle 1 - GREEN & BLUE 
and I used the Yellow from  Tie Die Bundle 2 - PINK & YELLOW
to create petals on my flower and tied some through the opening on the top of my tag.
I simply twisted small loops, and used another NEW Product for the center. I used one of the NEW Flair Buttons from the KEEP CALM FLAIR SET
The only thing I added was a stem on my flower using my Spectrum Noir marker and I stamped a Butterfly stamp from Unity Stamp Co. with some ColorBox ink pads. Voila'....Super Sweet and Super Fast!
Thank You for Stopping in today....and don't forget to link up for your chance to win the awesome Gift Certificate Prize at the 3GJ Challenge Blog too!!!

Keep Crafting, 
Because

Altered Mini Tag!

Good Morning! How are you guys? 
It's PINQUETTE Miranda here with another tag!!!! 
This tag is a much smaller one. 
I think I'm liking this now... LOL!
 


I used a mini tag this time. I inked it up good to make a background then stamped it with a Tim Holtz stamp. I punched a flower and curled the petals and added a covered button as the center. I added a sweet pearl stick pin and finished it off with a piece of lace.
