A couple cuties & Halloween Tag

My niece, Rhonda, sent me this sweet photo of  Christopher and Arianna enjoying their Halloween treats I made for them. They are precious! Arianna loves paper crafting...I see the Stampin' Up! Starter Kit in her future = )

Black is harder to photograph than I thought. I wasn't going to post this tag and thought we're all friends here...you probably wouldn't mind = )

It's actually sort of pretty in a creepy sort of way. The black, glitter flowers really shine in person and would be great for an "Over-The-Hill" project.
  • The tag measures 4" x 6" in Summer Starfruit Card Stock, sponged in black ink. 
  • The new Envelope Punch Board (item #133774) was used to punch the decorative corners on the top of the tag and to also round the corners on the bottom. Gotta love tools that do double-duty!
  • I first made the flowers and then covered with Elmers Spray Adhesive, which you can find at any craft store, then covered with ultrafine Black Stampin' Glitter from the Holiday Catalog, available for purchase until January 2, 2014 (item #132206).
  • The Designers Series paper is also from the Holiday Catalog; Witches Brew DSP, item #132185. The Summer Starfruit sheet for this project is actually very pretty and has teeny, tiny spiders on it. 

  • A black Sharpie was used to color Rhinestones and Pearls for the flower centers.
  • The leaves were punched using the Bird Builder Punch item #117191
  • The tag was made using the Halloween Bash Stamp also available until January 2, 2014, Set item #130580.

  1. Beth, I was looking at your PPA 177 post and saw this tag. This is nothing short of MAGNIFICENT, in a creepy sort of way. ;) Fantastic job. May I CASE? TFS!
