Halloween Tags

My first project features the Halloween Tags stamp set! I had so much fun creating this little window box frame filled with Halloween goodness!

I first created 6 boxes from a Sizzix Die. Next, I used some Halloween Paper and adhered all this amazing paper to the inside of each box.

All the stamps in this new set will fit inside a die or punch! Perfect for quick cutting! I stamped each label and tag and adhered it to the inside of each box.

To put together each box, I used some Sticky Strip Red Tape! This tape was amazing to hold each box together. For some extra adhesion, I also added some Fabric Tape! This worked beautifully and added a touch of shabbiness to my project.

I decorated each box with flowers, leaves and rhinestones! I then adhered to each side brown satin ribbon so that I can hang this beauty up in the house for Halloween!

Elegant Christmas Sentiments

As some of you saw a few weeks ago, I went paper shopping! The Christmas and Halloween paper is the best I have ever seen! And I am so excited to use all my goodies! The paper pairs up beautifully with Inspired by Stamping Stamps!

I used the “Merry Christmas” sentiment and a snowball border along the border of my sentiment. I tied two double bows and then adhered them using some glue.

I placed pearls on each corner and stitched along the edges for some shabbiness!

For my second project using the Elegant Christmas Sentiments, I made a 5×5 Christmas card using the NEW Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge Sketch.


Here is a close up of my sentiment and the new snowflake border available on Friday!

Halloween Labels Revisited! 

My last card features the Halloween Labels Stamp set. If you missed yesterday’s post featuring this fabulous stamp set,

I stamped my image using Memento Black ink and cut it out using the Spellbinder Label 4 die. I colored my moon a light yellow. I love how it just makes the moon pop out with color!

2 New Black Flowers and a New Brown Flower was added to the corner of my card.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope that you enjoyed this month’s release as much as we did! I had such a blast creating with these stamps! These will be available tomorrow! Whoo Hoo!

    Wonderful Christmas tags! The sentiments are beautifully traditional and so very well scripted. I love the Halloween tag set and projects – great ideas to get in the spirit of the season.

  9. Charlotte C. says:

    You have really outdone yourself with this batch of ideas and stamps! Love love LOVE the shadow box idea with the boxes – you seriously knocked it out of the park with THAT one! 🙂

  10. Bobbi Miller says:

    WOW! I just love those little Halloween tags and that box is adorable! What Sizzix die did you use to make the boxes? And your Christmas cards are so pretty! I think you should add PAPER to your online store. You have stamps, ribbons, embellishments, and you’re just missing the paper. Many of us are paper freaks (I am one) and would love to see that Christmas Paper you found. Where can we buy it? Thanks for inspiring me to get in that craft room and start creating ! 🙂 (oh, and for the chance to win too) Can’t wait for the release day!

  11. Martha H. says:
