Cat Tag: Day 28 of 31

Hello! It is Day 28 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today I have a tag for you that features and image from Stampendous' Halloween Labels Stamps and Die Set.

I started off with a simple manila tag from the office supply store. I sprayed it with Cut Grass Dylusions spray as well as metallic orange Memories Mist. While that was drying, I stamped out my image with VersaFine Ink in Onyx Black on to Canson's Mixed Media paper and colored it in with Zig Clean Color Markers. Then I die cut it. I love that the dies actually come with the stamps.

I then rubbed VersaMark ink around the edges of the tag and sprinkled on Aged Black embossing powder. I heated it from underneath because I kept the powder thick, and not all of it would adhere to the VersaMark. I also added some teeny bats from the Spooky Wishes set. I also added some orange chiffon ribbon from Creative Impressions, which added a bit more shimmer to the tag.

I have been making so many tags lately, that I think it would be fun to string them all up into a garland. What do you usually do with the tags that you make? Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed below. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.

The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
