Happy Halloween

Ok so it’s not Halloween yet, but everywhere I turn Halloween is around me so I thought I’d do a little something to bring Halloween to you!

I picked up these cute white tags (yes this was white) at Micheals for $1.99 because I’ve seen tags everywhere but never looked at them before – actually I’d forgotten I purchased them until I found them cleaning my table in the Craft Cave.  So I pulled out my Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink and a sponge and started to swirl around.  I really liked the distressed look, but something was missing.  That’s when I saw the Elegant Eggplant and how close it looks to black, but has some really great shadowing aspects.  So with my sponge I used Elegant Eggplant as a shadowing on the edges and it came out so great!!

I had seen a Halloween tri-coaster wall hanging www.istampedthat.com that had a pumpkin made from oval punches that I thought was so cute!  The pumpkin is made using 3 oval punches of Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  One oval is the front main oval and then the other 2 ovals are adjusted on the sides to make the cutest pumpkin!  I sponged the edges using Pumpkin Pie and the Tea Dye distressing ink.

The sentiment came from Delightful Dozen and was I  first inked the words using Staz-on and the pumpkin was colored using a blender pen and Pumpkin pie.  Then I had to take out my clear embossing powder to give that little pumpkin the attention he deserved!  I love heat embossing and I just purchased black and pewter, so be prepared to see a lot of it on my cards for Halloween and the Holidays.  The ribbon is a simple orange that I purchased at Michaels.

Well I hope my little tag makes you think of pumpkin pie and cooler weather!  Have a Magical Day!
