Hello everyone! Today I am sharing my first project as part of AB Studio‘s creative team! AB Studio has an amazing collection of rubber stamps, stencils, papers, and more. I am super excited to share my projects with you!
I just can’t believe that this Saturday is Halloween! This year I feel Halloween will look very different than previous years because of Coronavirus, but I still wanted to try and make it fun! I decided to make gift tags for treat bags using the cute Halloween Mouse stamp from AB Studios. I am sharing two of them with you today.
I stamped out the image several times onto some Bristol Smooth paper, cut them out, and colored them using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. For both of the tags pictured, I used the Avery Elle Round Top tag die. This die allows you to cut a scalloped tag shape, or you can arrange the included rectangle on top to create a shaker tag.
I blended Distress Oxide ink in Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, and Tumbled Glass to create a nighttime sky for the tag pictured on the left. Next, I splattered some white acrylic paint onto the background to create the look of stars. I wanted the pumpkin to be sitting on some grass, so I used a border die from Lawn Fawn on black card stock and ran it through my die cutting machine two times. I lined the two to create a layer of grass and cut them out with the tag die to match the scallop edge. I stamped my sentiment on the top layer with versamark ink, covered it with white embossing powder, and heat set it. I glued the first grass layer on the tag and attached the top layer with thin foam squares. To finish the tag, I glued on my image and metallic silver jewels.
I decided to change up the design for the tag on the right and made it a shaker tag. I cut one tag without a window and another with a window. I blended Black Soot and Chipped Sapphire onto the surface of the window tag and Chipped Sapphire and Tumbled Glass onto the surface of the other tag. I stamped a sentiment to the tag with the window just like I did for the other tag. Next, I added acetate to the window, arranged foam tape around the window opening and edge, and added assorted sequins and confetti. I carefully put the two tags together. I added some thin foam squares to the back of my image and attached it to the front of the tag.
As you can see, this one image can be used in so many ways to make a whole collection of Halloween tags for treat bags! This stamp was so easy to use and produced a very crisp image so my whole process went super fast! I hope you give this type of project a try!
