Fall Tag Challenges!


My friend Marcia's Stampin' Pad is the Featured Tag Artist for the TYIC #75 Challenge.

Here is Marcia's really cute Fall Tag!


I was inspired by Marcia's White Tag, Fall Theme and Sentiment.

Here is my Hello Fall Tag!



My tag is also for the new STAMPlorations
"TAGplorations" Challenge.  October 2017 is "All About Fall"!  I did not do the optional twist: Red, Gold and Orange.


I die cut my tag with CUTploration Luggage Tags Nesting Dies (Lg die).  I then stamped STAMPlorations Be Thankful basket of apples using Archival Jet Black onto Strathmore Mixed Media and colored with my Zigs: Beige, Dark Brown, Mid Green and Wine Red. Next die cut basket and apples with Be Thankful Bundle Die.

Placed my tag in MISTI and inked SU "For All Things" sentiment using Zig Dark Brown. Then attached basket with fun foam and added SU Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon (ret).

Fun and easy tag with inspiration from Marcia and my STAMPloration products.

Enjoy and Happy Tag designing.  Hugs..

  6. Nancy, your tag with its lovely bushel basket of apples took me right back to the part of my childhood when we lived on an apple orchard west of Toronto - I remember helping pick apples and pack them into bushel baskets every fall. Your tag is so evocative of that!

    1. How fun to live on an apple orchard. We only have 3 apple trees. Yellow transparents, Coos River Beauties and Jonathon apple trees. Our Jonathons are dark red with a bit of green at the stems..they were my inspiration for my coloring:-) We got what jonathons we wanted and our black bear and the deer got the rest:-) We were all happy!! Hugs

  11. Your basket of apples is lovely; reminds me of the years ago farmers' markets we'd go to with my parents! Thank you for sparking such warm, wonderful memories...and the craving for apple spice muffins *grin* So thrilled you shared this gem in the Tag, You're It gallery!

  17. Perfect white to showcase those delicious apples...so crunchy yummy! I can't grow them on my yard because we are in equatorial zone and the weather is not suitable for apple growing so we buy imported apples. I have four red delish apples and one pear left in my fridge and my little girl loves them twice a day :) Such a delight to see your beautiful creation at TAGplorations October challenge ~ thank you for playing along with us Nancy and join us again this November okay. Happy creating :)

    1. Thank you Asmah for your sweet comment. We do love and appreciate all our fresh apples (3 trees), berries and vegetables. Luckily my husband and I both love to garden and are vegetarians:-) But you do have fruit that we can not grow too. Happy Stamping..Hugs
