Mixed Media Tag Halloween Tag Stitch It





Hello, my dear blog friends, welcome back to the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our theme is "STITCH IT". As it’s the first Monday of the month we are showcasing a brand/company. This week we are all using some fabulous products from AALL & CREATE. You don’t have to use them to join in with the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used. This week we are welcoming the lovely Lori E Kennedy aka cr8tive_lori on instagram, into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited her blog before then you are in for a real treat!


I was inspired to create a mixed media tag using AALL & Create BASIC VEGGIES A4 Clear Stamp Set on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology CURIOSITIES Sticker Book and Tim Holtz Idea-ology HALLOWEEN Ephemera. To start this project, I stamped the pumpkin image on the size 8 tag that I cut with the watercolor paper. The background of the tag was colored with watercolors, and distressed with blending tools and Distress Ink Pad. I added the stitches around the edges of the tag using a sawing machine. 

On a piece of watercolor paper, I stamped, colored and cut the same pumpkin image, then pasted it on the tag using Tombow Mono Glue. 


The tag was added many sentiments using Tim Holtz Idea-ology CURIOSITIES Sticker Book. I attached some more Halloween embellishments on the tag with Tim Holtz Idea-ology HALLOWEEN Ephemera to finish off this stitched Halloween tag. Hope you like this project and got inspired to create with us. Happy crafting!

Hello, my dear blog friends, welcome back to the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our theme is "EMBOSS IT". I was inspired to create a mixed media Halloween tag using Tim Holtz Layering Stencil DECAYED on the background, and decorated it with the heat embossed image using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamps MONSTROUS and Simon Says Stamp EMBOSSING POWDER CLEAR Fine Detail.


I started this project with spraying Tim Holtz Distress HALLOWEEN MICA STAIN SET 3 Ranger over

On a piece of watercolor paper, I stamped the witch image using Tim Holtz Distress HALLOWEEN MICA STAIN SET 3 Ranger and a black ink pad, then heat embossed it. The witch was colored with 
Zig Clean Color 30 COLOR SET A Real Brush, then tore and adhered on the tag. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed on the tag. I added some more sentiments using Tim Holtz Idea-ology CURIOSITIES Sticker Book. Some metal embellishments were adhered on the tag to finish off this EMBOSSed Halloween tag.

Hello, my dear blog friends, welcome back to the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our theme is "SPARKLE & SHINE". I was inspired to create a sparkle mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Distress HALLOWEEN SPARKLE SET Ranger on the background, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-ology ENGRAVING LAYERS and Tim Holtz Idea-ology EPHEMERA SNIPPETS NUMBER STRIPS.


To start this project, I first applied a layer of Tombow Mono Glue evenly on the background of the size 8 tag, then sprinkled the Tim Holtz Distress Mica Flakes on it.

Mixed Media Holiday Christmas Tag Die Cuts


Hello, my talented crafty friends, welcome back to the new challenge. This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge our theme is "DIE CUTS". was inspired to create a mixed media holiday tag using Paper Rose WINTER STROLL 12x12 Paper Pad on the background, and decorated it with die cut embellishments using CZ Design Stamps and Dies ORNAMENT OPTIONS and Tim Holtz Idea-ology CHRISTMAS Ephemera Pack.


To start this project, I trimmed the paper from Paper Rose WINTER STROLL 12x12 Paper Pad and pasted it on this size 8 tag. I distressed the edges of the tag using Distress Ink Pad and a blending tool, then outlined the tag using a black pen.
