31 Tags of Halloween: Day 11

I can barely keep my eyes open this morning, but I completed my tag! Perhaps in the light of the day I might add a few more embellishments to it, but I like its simplicity.

This one is made up of a tag, Tim Holtz Halloween paper stash, the witches from Tim Holtz Halloween paper dolls, a Tim Holtz Found Relatives card, Distress markers in Mowed Lawn and Black Soot and Distress ink in Black Soot. My glue of choice (as pretty much always) was Glossy Accents.

I traced out my tag onto the skull and crossbones paper and made sure to trace out the top hole. I cut it out and used a standard hole punch to make the hole.

I added squiggles of Glossy Accents to the front of my tag and added the cut-out paper then set it aside to dry.

The backs of the Found Relatives cards are absolutely gorgeous. I flipped through my stack and found a design I liked on a card I wasn't going to use for anything else.

I colored the entire back of the card with Distress Marker in Mowed Lawn.

With a tissue, I blotted away excess color. It was still too bright so I added Distress ink in Black Soot and glued it in place with Glossy Accents.


I colored the cut edges of the paper dolls with Distress Marker in Black Soot and then glued them in place with Glossy Accents too.

When I get home I'll weed through my ribbons and find something suitably dark for this tag.

If I could have one Tim Holtz wish, it would be to have just a pack of the witches. Wonder if he'll see this blog...

31 Tags of Halloween: Day 6

Oh my goodness, today started off badly. I'm not feeling so great, but I have to power through this little challenge, so here we are. I'm grateful that I at least have the day off to wallow in crankiness.

Initially, I wanted to make a ghostly tag and have some cool stickers on it that spell out 'Boo' but as with most projects, things took a turn...

I grabbed a tag, some nice Tim Holtz Halloween paper, those cool stickers, a Tim Holtz Paper Doll, Ranger Pigment Ink in Glacier White, Distress ink in Tea Dye, Glossy Accents, cheesecloth, and my favorite Tim Holtz tree stamp.



I inked up the stamp in Tea Dye, but it was lighter than I remembered. I grabbed some Distress ink in Walnut Stain and added lowlights and edged the card really well.

I dabbed the Glacier White over the paper doll to give her a very faded appearance. As she dried, I inked my stamp in Glacier White and stamped it onto my tag. Ghostly, but too ghostly. My heart sank. I grabbed my Archival ink in Black a…

31 Tags of Halloween: Day 12

Today's tag was really begun last night and finished today. I'm not feeling very well today so I'm at home taking it easy. I decided to make a shaker tag when a piece of Tim Holtz packaging caught my eye and I'm planning on submitting it to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge "Not a Card" this week.

Let me start by saying that I haven't ever made a shaker card or tag before but inspiration struck me and I cobbled together something a little different...and definitely not a card!

My supplies included a tag, Tim Holtz Halloween paper stash, Tim Holtz Vignette Panel, Distress Stain in Hickory Smoke, Distress Ink in Black Soot, Distress Marker in Black Soot, Glossy Accents, Tim Holtz Collage Medium, Tim Holtz Halloween ephemera Eye doctor, Tim Holtz Pumpkin Pieces plastic packaging, Distress Clear Rock Candy glitter, black glitter paper (from my stash), E6000 glue, Tim Holtz metal word band, Tim Holtz Halloween Trimmings, and black creepy drape fabric.

31 Tags of Halloween: Days 14 and 15

Yesterday, I didn't craft at all because I hosted my 2nd Annual Haunted Open House! It was such a fun day with lots of visitors and some of my creations went off to very good homes. By the end of the day I was 100% spent so I decided to just make two tags today.

I'm pretty tired and I didn't get any process photos either but I'll do better tomorrow!

Tag 14 is a spooked black cat that I made using Tim Holtz Halloween ephemera, Tim Holtz Halloween Clippings stickers, Distress Marker in Black Soot, and Distress Ink in Carved Pumpkin and Lucky Clover.

I inked the entire tag with Carved Pumpkin and edged in Lucky Clover. I edged the cat ephemera in the Black Soot marker and added it to the tag with Glossy Accents.

I edged the stickers in Lucky Clover and added Glossy Accents to the back to help it stay on better.

Tag 15 was a bit of trial and error. I used Distress Ink in Wilted Violet and Black Soot Archival in black, a Tim Holtz Halloween Clippings sticker, and Glossy Acc…
