Halloween Tag using Different Brands

SSS Wednesday Challenge Blog is sponsoring a Gift It challenge featuring Clearly Besotted product. Looking through my stash of CB stamps, I could create something for Christmas and Birthday but Halloween is just around the corner, and this is one of those occasions that I mass produce give aways for my sons' classmates.

After planning the stamps I will be using and how it is going to be laid out, I stamped the images on a Post-It note to create masks for the images. I fuzzy cut these images. Using the Misti Stamping Tool, I stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo ink giving particular attention on which image will be in front, and that is the witch's hat and goody bag, both from Lawn Fawn Spooktacular stamp set. I masked these images and positioned the hedgehog from Clearly Besotted Let's Roll stamp set. I stamped the critter in a way that the critter is wearing the witch's hat and holding the treat bag.

I colored these images using Copics. I heat embossed the sentiment from My Mind's Eye and using a black sparkle glitter from Michael's. I applied clear Wink of Stella to the witch's hat and the treat bag. I applied Ranger Glossy Accent to the witch's hat band. After this has dried, I cut this into a tag using Paper Smooches Gift Tag 3 die.  I had to do partial die cutting to extend the length of the tag so as not to cut off a portion of the image if I stuck with the original size of the tag.

I inked the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink black soot. To complete the tag, I applied a ribbon, a twine and a mini-clothespin. 

I created a belly band to wrap around a chocolate bar to which I will attach this tag. I don't have a black glittered paper. I created my own. I punched a black patterned paper using an EK Success spider web border puncher. I applied some Versamark ink and poured the same glittered embossing powder to this. I heat set this and allowed it to dry before adhering this to the edge of the My Mind's Eye patterned paper. I wrapped this around the chocolate bar and adhered the tag to this.

All of the products I used for this project came from my stash. With all the amazing products being released, somehow, I can't cope up. So, I encourage you to look into your stash. I am sure you will come up with unimaginable things. 

Have a blessed & brilliant day! Thanks for visiting my blog.
