A Spooky Tag

Hi! I'm here to share another tag for Tag Tuesday's Autumn/Halloween theme. I used Tim Holtz paper to cover a manila tag. Then I inked the edges with Blackbird chalk ink. Next I sized and fussy cut a Gecko Galz image and pop dotted it to the tag. A flourish was stamped above the boys' heads. I added the word Spooky (cut from a Tim Holtz flashcard), the moon and an owl (which are die cuts from Tim Holtz).

Thanks for stopping by - enjoy your day!

A Boo-tiful Halloween to You!

Hi! Today I'd like to share a Halloween card I made for Gecko Galz.

The witch image was sized and fussy cut. She's from the "Bootiful Halloween" collage sheet, as are the words which I cut and backed on black cardstock. The green background paper is called "Witch's Potion" from the Hocus Pocus paper pack. The black paper is from the Arsenic and Lace paper pack. The trims, flowers and orange mulberry paper are from my stash.

We have a new theme at Tag Tuesday - Autumn/Halloween. I made a tag for each, which I'm sharing below.

The background of this autumn tag was made with spray inks. I stamped large leaves and then layered on a bird die cut and flowers from my stash. A piece of ribbon with the words "Autumn Splendor" was stapled onto the tag with the Tim Holtz tiny attacher. Finally, ribbon was tied into a bow at the top.

The second tag was made using Tim Holtz Halloween paper for the background. I stamped some random dots with purple ink onto the background. I also stamped the small gravestones across the bottom of the tag. Next I layered on a Bingo card die cut, 2 doilies and a skeleton die cut, pop dotting the skeleton. A piece of ribbon was added to the top along with the eye die cut. (All die cuts are from Tim Holtz).

Thanks for stopping by!

Our new theme at Tag Tuesday is "All Creatures Great and Small". I immediately thought of pets, especially dogs and cats. These loving creatures bring so much joy into our lives!

Bump in the Night

A new month and a new challenge at Gecko Galz. The theme is "Bump in the Night". Here is my spooky project!

I painted a Tim Holtz frame with black acrylic paint and layered it over paper from the Dark Arts collage sheet. The crow was sized and printed, then pop dotted over the original image. The person is from the Jeepers Creepers collage sheet. I added lace, a moon charm, flair button and Tim Holtz skeleton charm from my stash.

We hope you will join in the challenge - click here for all the details.
