Halloween Tag using Sin City Stamps and Altered Pages

Hello, Peggy here to show you my halloween tag inspired by our sponsored partners Altered Pages and our fabulous Sin City Stamps.

Suplies used today are:
Stazon Ink
Patterned cardstock G45
Foam stickers
Black Accents
Black Pen

 I stamped my images onto G45 patterned paper 
with stazon ink and accented the dots on the 
balloon with black accents.
 I fussy cut all of the images.
I cut out my own tags using
 a ruler and drawing straight lines to help 
ensure an accurate scallop on top.

I put all of the pieces together using foam
 adhesive dots. Finally adding the collaged
Words and a shadow to each of the 
blocked collaged words with a black pen.
A black ribbon on top brings it together.

"Over Treetops Fly The Witches 
Happy To Bring Toils And Twitches"

to stop by Sin City Stamps for your stamping, 
chipboard and stenciling needs. A big thank you to our

Designing with Sin City Stamps and Altered Pages

Hello! Peggy here to show you how I made this fabulous friendship hot air balloon wall decor piece.

For the entire month of August we are partnering with Altered Pages to bring you some really awesome projects from some very talented designers.
Todays list of supplies include:
I started with a blank chipboard book from Sin City Stamps. I painted the edges with black acrylic paint before pasting patterned paper to the front and back of the back cover.

Next I traced the slats and edges of the balloon onto another piece of patterned paper and cut with an exacto knife.  I distressed all edges with Broken China Distress ink. Then glued my papers down with Golden matte medium for a smooth finish.

I fussy cut my Fairys as well as my stamped images of Wings and Fairy Words and distressed all edges. I used Aged Mahogany distress inks to color the stamped image of the fairy wings and glued them to my fussy cut fairy above.

I used white gesso around the edges for a shabby look using my finger

Next I wanted to embellish my piece. I made clay pieces, first I cut strips of clay and cut them to resemble a banner and bent them befor baking. After baking I stamped the words "Pixie" and "Dust" with unmounted stamps to easily bend over the curves in stazon black ink. Not pictured, I used a spellbinders die to cut and make an impression in clay by pressing with my hands and baked as directed on package.  I stamped the word "Friends" in stazon black ink and distressed and colored with Distress inks.

I used Broken China Distress inks to color some seam binding to match and wrapped some wire for hanging. Lastly I used some stickles as fairy dust sparingly.
Thank you for joining me today. I hope I have inspired you to create your own decor piece to give to a special friend.
