Stampin' Up! Tags, Tags, Tags for Amy's Inkin' Krew Team Blog Hop


Welcome back to another Inkin’ Krew blog hop!  Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products.  This month we are all creating projects with a “Halloween Fun” theme and I’m featuring the Tags, Tags, Tags Stamp Set and Trio of Tags Dies for my project.


Here's is what I created...

My card base is Basic Gray, with a mat of Basic Black. I adhered a piece of Designer Series Paper from the retired Halloween Night Specialty Designer Paper.

I added a strip of retired Washi Tape as an attempt of making a road! 

The sentiment is from the Tags, Tags, Tags stamp set and is cut out with the Trio of Tags dies. I ran a piece of retired Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine through the tag and tied a bow. The tag is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. A friend suggested I enter my card in the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #387 so I'm giving it a go!

For the inside ...

I punched out a couple of bats with the retired Spooky Bats punch and the jack-o-lantern is cut with a die from Trio of Tags. The Boo and Happy Halloween are from To Every Season (retired) and the Trick or Treat is from Itty Bitty Greetings. 

I'd like to enter my card at Tuesday Throwdown #465 ATGTry it on Tuesday's Neat and Tidy Challenge and SUOC 257: Die-Cutting and Punching Challenge.
