Tag You're It - Country Houses

A new challenge begins today at Tag You're It Challenge!  Our guest this time is the fabulous Loll Thompson from Stamping with Loll!   There's lots to love about this one.. check out the fabulous inky background.. it reminds me of the aurora boreallis! (Northern Lights)    And the fabulous intricate die cuts.. glittery snowy accents, and colorful stamped sentiment!  Pefection right?

I love this tag, but am always striving to try to make things my own.  I don't ever want to copy someone's design, but I'll grab things from it that inspire me.   I kept lots of things that I loved about this the same.. the inky background, the colored stamped sentiment, the pretty bow, and even some glitter.

I went non- traditional with the colors - reds and pinks.  I'm addicted to die cuts and have more than I can ever even count.  I love them all!  I wanted to go for a more retro look since I was using non traditional colors.. the pink reminds me of the aqua, pink, lime and puples of my childhood - yes.. on a white tree! LOL! 


The die I used is from Poppystamps - it's called COUNTRY HOUSES. It has a background die so you can put lights in the windows if you like. I left mine completely white - creating a silhouette for the inky background.
This stamp is also from Poppystamps CHRISTMAS GREETINGS - it's a set entirely filled with sentiments.

Loving your inky image and pretty bow.
I hate CASE-ing, too. It feels like cheating so I won't do it either.
But I'll quite happily pinch ideas! LOL. x

Hi Jeanne. The pink and red together are so bright and fun. Great paired with all white accents. Your snowy scene is so adorable ... the sparkle path is so pretty. The white bow and charm are a beautiful finishing touch. Thanks for CASEing my tag. Happy to be at Tag You're It this week. Hugs, Loll
