Halloween Holiday

Back with another larger Halloween treat and larger tag today.

Again, this design is easy to switch out to make a Christmas tag.

A strip of Typeset Specialty DSP was backed with Very Vanilla card for extra strength. The top was punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper and the bottom with the PL Corner. The sentiment and the bats and spiders from the Holiday Home photopolymer set were stamped onto Pumpkin Pie card with Basic Black ink. After stamping the pumpkin with Pumpkin Pie ink onto Very Vanilla card, it was overstamped with the face carving in Basic Black ink. Whisper White Craft ink was used to stamp the ghost on Basic Black card. The bats, spiders and pumpkin were all punched out with the Banner. For the sentiment and ghost, the stamping was first trimmed to the same width as the Banner punch and then just the ends inserted into the back of the punch to get the banner tails. After adhering the small tags behind the sentiment, they were popped up on dimensionals on the tag. The whole tag was tied onto a Large Cello Bag with Natural Chevron Ribbon.

To switch this to a Christmas treat tag, stamp a combo of the fairy lights, snowman, wreath and snowflakes, together with the Christmas sentiment, or even Santa and his sleigh.

Bootiful Halloween

Another Halloween treat tag today.  A bigger tag for a bigger treat bag. This one took a little bit longer than the other recent tags I shared, simply because of the colouring in, but it still doesn’t take more than 10 minutes.

If you have kids then you could stamp and punch the tags and let them colour them in for you 🙂

The Halloween boot and sentiment combo from Bootiful Occasions was stamped in Black Stazon ink onto a strip of Whisper White card. The top was punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper and the bottom with the PL Corner. Pear Pizzazz and Wisteria Wonder markers were used to colour in the boot and then the stars from Project Life Point & Click were added in Wisteria Wonder ink. The whole tag was tied onto a Large Cello Bag with Natural Chevron Ribbon.

To switch this to a Christmas treat tag, simply swap the boot for the Warm Winter Wishes one.

I’ll be back tomorrow to show how I used the negative of the Noel die cut that I shared yesterday.

Ghoulish tags

I don’t really bother with Halloween cards but I do make tags to go on the sweets we give out to trick or treaters.

Today’s tag is a really quick and easy one – great for making a whole bunch in one go. This one’s wrapped around a larger bag of choccies as demo model 🙂 whilst I try to find some sweets that will fit easily into the long cello bags.

The sentiments from Good Greetings (still available as a hostess freebie during October) were stamped in Black Stazon onto Whisper White card. “Blood splatters” were stamped over the top of the sentiments using Gorgeous Grunge stamps and Real Red ink. After punching the tag out with the Decorative Label it was tied onto the Medium Cello Bag with Real Red Taffeta Ribbon.

Have a great weekend.
