Distressed Halloween Tag


Look out I am distressing again! 

I can't help it...it's my new passion and I think it's here to stay!  My darling husband and I were invited to our good friends home for some pool and darts Saturday.  We all made some yummy appy's, my husband made salmon skewers and I made pumpkin cheesecake.  I made a Thank You tag to go with the appy's we brought.  Not to mention some of the techniques I learned from crafty BFF!

I distressed the medium sized tag with my inks then stamped the Trick or Treat and Skeleton, both from SU.  After that was dry I ran it though my Tim Holtz Halloween embossing folder.  Then I spritzed gold all over the tag.  I only have the Perfect Pearls (without the fixative) that will smudge off if you don't set it.  So, if you have these use hairspray to set the shimmer.  Then it won't come off.

You can see the embossing here over the skeleton. And I banged out the metal brads with my new hammer!

I tied with MS ribbon and distressed a bat charm with my Ranger Alcohol Inks.

I punched my MS Bat Fence punch then attached with my Tiny Attacher.

I have been recently trying some new stuff.  I was getting a little tired there for a bit.  This tag is a perfect example of all the new things I have been experimenting with.  My Tiny Attacher, the Spritz bottles with the Pearl Ex, hairspray, Alcohol Inks on metal and my newest toy, the distressing hammer.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
