31 Days of Halloween - Blog Hop - Day One

So - we're off!!  I'm just hoping I can manage a daily post - I have pre-written some though!!

My first share is a Halloween Tag that I have made to send with a Halloween themed swap.



I started with the base tag and covered it with some Stampin'Up Halloween paper - I've not used their papers before, but this is really nice quality.  I then blended in some Spiced Marmalade distress ink from the outside inwards.  I also stamped a strip of cobwebs in archival black ink randomly around the edges of the tag.

I decided to add a little pocket and two extra tags.  The pocket is also Stampin'Up paper - with some cute little orange spiders on it!  The two little tags were originally a cream colour but again I used the Spiced Marmalade to colour them, this time a full coverage.  One tag I then ran through my Big Shot with a spider web embossing folder and then inked over the raised web with archival black ink.  On the second I die cut some small bats in black card and added 'boo' from chipboard letters.



I then tied some orange distressed cotton ribbon and some purple organza ribbon through each tag.  Really pleased with these - hard to believe that I was nervous of tags just a few months ago!!



Please take time to visit the other blogs on this hop - the blog-roll is on my sidebar

Thanks for reading
Stefanie
