Hello Halloween Series | Shaker Tag ft. Clearly Besotted "Good to be Bad"

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.

As I wind down the Hello Halloween Series for this year (there's only a couple left!) I wanted to share a tag I created using Clearly Besotted's "Good to be Bad" stamp set. Tags are a fantastic way to use the smaller stamp images that would usually feel lost on a card. It can still be used for a card, just the tag would be the focus and more of the patterned paper we've all been hoarding can be seen on the front.

To begin, I stamped this witch from Clearly Besotted's "Good to be Bad" stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 85lb Toner Grey paper. A while back I did a paper comparison that included this paper and I was surprised to see that despite how thin this paper is I can still use Copic markers. You can see that comparison here.

I then fussy cut her out, with no border. I die cut two tags using Lawn Fawn's "Tag You're It" die set and then used a small scalloped rectangle to cut a window out of one of them.

I stamped the greeting from the same set and used Skor Tape to attach my acetate for the front of the window. I went around the edges with Candied Apple Distress Ink and added my witch to the front.

Normally when I make shakers I double up on the foam tape so that all the little bits have a lot of room to shake, but for this one I used some chunky glitter from Recollections that didn't need as much room, so I only used a single layer of foam tape; this worked out well as I didn't want as much bulk for such a small piece.

If you find that your shaker bits are sticking to the edges of your foam tape you can use your powder tool to un-stick the sides before you remove the paper backing. If you don't have a powder tool, you can use a soft paintbrush and some regular kitchen flour and it works just as well.

I hope you like today's tag and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
