Halloween tags

For my tags today I did the same design but slightly different supplies. I taught a class that featured this design of tag and two other fall cards. They are different because I didn't actually finish either tag while teaching. Just parts of one and parts of the other. Once I returned home I finished things up a bit.

I'll start with the first one which is dry embossed with a Fiskars embossing plate. I then inked the edges with Ranger distress ink using an ink blender tool. I love that look:)

On the left side I fit a piece of black cardstock to the tag and then used the patterned  washi tape to finish the edge. The pumpkin border is by K and Co and I cut small pieces of  black cardstock to paste behind the border for the eyes and mouths before adhering it to my tag. The center die cut is by Quickutz with Bazzill purple cardstock, the owl sticker is by Bo Bunny and the bat sticker by Jolee's.

For the second tag I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and a bit lighter color distress ink for the edges. The black cardstock and different patterned washi tape are on the left side just like above. I did the same technique with the glittery skull border placing cardstock behind to make the eyes and nose appear orange. 

For the center I used a Spellbinders scallop die cut and a square punch by Creative Memories for my spider stamp by Inkadinkadoo stamped with black Hero Arts ink. The orange ribbon is a scrap from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back again tomorrow with another Halloween creation. I hope you will come back and check it out.
