12 Tags of 2015- October

SORRY to be so derelict on the blogging! I've been running around like a headless chicken around here! Can you believe it's not the end of the month and I'm posting my October tag for Tim's 12 Tags of 2015? I think it's because I've had these dies on my desk for a few weeks, and I was working with them here and there, but hadn't decided what I was going to do yet until I saw his tag. To say I was thrilled to see them on Tim's tag was an understatement. I like someone doing the thinking for me, so thanks Tims! I decided to go ahead and make three tags using all three of the dies.
Oh my goodness, these Sizzix dies are soooo super fun to put together, and the possibilities of colors and textures are out the window! You can really design these however you want! And FYI...all of Tim's new Halloween stuff is gone...sold out...so hoard it if you have it, and if you still see some on the shelves grab it up!!!
Lots and lots of Ranger Alcohol Ink was used on the foil backed cardstock! My nail beds are still nasty looking after 4 days...I LOVE it!!!
I used a plain but cool background from the paper stash, but I thought it needed some stenciling!
I used the same Splatter Stencil as Tim, but I wanted the splashes with more intensity so I used Distress Paint instead of ink on them!
If you follow my tag takes, you know I use the #10 Jumbo size. WHY? Because I love to fill them up with stuff! So I added the new Halloween Handwritten die cuts, some stitching,  more metal, and...
...some cheesecloth dyed with Distress Spray Stain! This is also so fun to do! Then when it came time to put it all on, I had to pole the family to see if they liked the monochromatic look better or a mish mash of the three colors. The monochromatic won with everyone!
Here's Franky!!!
Here's the Zombinator!!!
And here's Blood Sucker!!!
LOVE this trio!!! I know Halloween is not everybody's cup of tea...it didn't used to be mine. But, I have found that I am much more creative with Halloween crafts...it's almost an anything goes! Hope you join along on the fun of the tags! Until next time...and hopefully it won't be so long again!

Supplies:

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!

  1. I have been having so much fun looking a people's tags for October. You are right, Halloween does allow a certain freedom - if you mess up, you just say "It was supposed to be that way." These are great tags. Wonderful color choices for each tag. They are inspiring.
