Friends Of WMS Blog Waltz - Halloween 92

Mona Pendleton | Friday, September 17, 2010 @ 12:00 AM | , , ,

Hi Friends! Here today for the Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps September Blog Waltz.This month Claire is challenging us all to create a project based on a Halloween theme. For complete Waltz details please visit the The Play Room!

Since I have this healthy addiction to tags, I created SIX GRANDE sized tags combining so many of my favorite papercrafting supplies to make this SPOOKY swag that hangs in front of my fireplace. Using the Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® LF-190 Grand Labels Four die templates to cut each label made for 6 great canvases to showcase so much Halloween fun all in one project!
With such a variety of Halloween images that Halloween Party, Midnight Feast, & Wanda's Pantry sets have to offer, it made it quite easy to mix things up a bit. Here you see the lil' witch image from Midnight Feast & several images from Halloween Party stamped on the ticket in the lower right corner.Next up, is a spooky spider from Halloween Party. After stamping the spider, I used a S4-189 Labels Three die template to cut/emboss him then applied some Ranger Rock Candy giving it an aged appearance.
Next up, features the Vampire BLOOD image from Wanda's Pantry. This too has the Rock Candy applied to it.Next up, is the Witch & her cauldron of magic brew from Halloween Party. So fun - don't you think?
Next up, is one of the Wanda's Witch's Brew label that fits perfectly with a S4-190 Labels Four die template! A match made in my stamping Heaven :) I spitzed a lil' glimmer mist to add some color & fun!
I found some Tim Holtz journaling tags at my LSS & stamped away with a variety of images from Midnight Feast.

Here is the pic of where the SPOOKY swag really hangs when not being photographed :) PINK is typically my color of choice but it just didn't seem to "fit" amongst all these shades of purple, green, orange & black ;)

Thanks for looking! Can't wait to see what everyone has created along the waltz! I'll be back tomorrow with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge. Be Sweet!
