Tag Tuesday Challenge: All Stitched Up

sew sew sew happy

Here’s my tag for Tag Tuesday using “All Stitched Up” as the challenge prompt.  FUN-tastic Challenge!  You can post tags to this challenge at the Tag Tuesday Blog from Tuesday, November 12, up to and including Monday, November 18.  The next theme will be posted on Tuesday, November 19.

I used a zig-zag stitch to stitch the areas between patterned papers of my tag to give it the look of seams.  The sewing machine stamp (with button sewn on top) was used to further support the challenge as well as the sentiment and the choice of patterned papers.  I hope you enjoy this challenge as much as I did—so Fun!

Sew Sew Sew Happy Tag Supplies List

Sew Sew Sew Itty Bitty stamp and sentiment available at Unity Stamp Company (scanned into my computer, filled with color and patterned paper in Photoshop Elements, converted to png file, and cut with my Silhouette Portrait)--Image mounted to tag using 3D Zots. Then I sewed a button to the top of the sewing machine. I altered the sentiment to make it different sizes for interest and wet embossed it by using a Ranger Perfect Medium pen and applying and melting clear embossing powder.  OF NOTE:  The sewing machine was cut from cardstock and chipboard to give it some added dimension.

Tim Holtz Tag & Bookplates Die by Sizzix (cut using my Silhouette Portrait); Black Soot Distress Ink was applied to edges of tag and tag topper.  OF NOTE:  The tag was cut from cardstock and chipboard to give it some added weight.

Altered Fashion prints were used for the background of the tag, filled the scallop border, and filled the stamp image.  Fall Word Strips were used toward the bottom of the tag, “soul” and the rectangle including the heart.  Both of these digital kits are by Nancie Rowe Janitz and are available NOW at

Tag topper and scalloped border by Silhouette America.  OF NOTE:  The tag topper was cut from cardstock and chipboard to give it some added dimension.

Button is from Autumn Leaves.

Glossy Accents by Ranger was applied to the heart in the sentiment.

Heavy duty jute from hardware store was applied to the tag by tying a bow.

Below is a peek at Nancie Rowe Janitz’s Altered Fashion, Bountiful, and Fall Word Strips kits I used in the tag above.  I printed the background for my tag from the Altered Fashion kit and added the above distress ink to edge it once the tag was cut.  The tag topper and strip at the bottom was a print from the Bountiful kit.
