If you are already hopping, you've come here from Teresa Scrivens' blog.
My creation this month is a BIG tag. Check it out...
The tag measures 4 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches and will make a great gift tag for a bottle of 7 Deadly Zins or Vampire Blood wine at Halloween time.
I took full advantage of our new "Art Philosophy" Cricut Cartridge when creating this tag. Wow, how fun and easy it was to create the images you see here.
Let's take a closer look...
The frame you see here is cut from a sheet of our new "Mischief" paper pack, and if you have this new Cricut cartridge already, this frame is from page 44, and I set the measure at 5 inches. At first I thought I'd use this frame over a solid card stock for the tag. But when I popped out the center...
I like this even more. So I put aside that pretty frame for another day.
Because I knew I was making a tag, I mounted this cut piece to a large piece of Black card stock, leaving space above for the tag topper. After trimming the tag topper, I eventually mounted this unit to a larger piece of Desert Sand card stock.
In the "Wicked" stamp set is a cool witch's broom, but I wanted to add texture and interest to my project, so I stamped just the handle of the broom and made the bristles out of small pieces of hemp bundled together by a longer piece.
I adhered the bristles to the broom handle with a little Liquid Glass. See how that wicked witch is standing on the front of the broom?
As soon as I got this "Art Philosophy" cartridge, I knew I had to try out those spiral flowers. There are six different style to choose from and this pointy one suited my project perfectly! I cut this flower out (page 69) four times:
Large Black flower: 4 1/2 inches
Small Black flower: 3 inches
Gray Wool flower in the center of the black one: 2 1/2 inches
Gray Wool larger flower: 3 1/2 inches
Then I filled each flower center generously with our new Silver Glitz Glitter Gel.
The witch, the broomstick, and the phrase you see here were all stamped with Versamark, then Black embossing powder. The "Have a Wicked Halloween" phrase fit nicely in this bracket label cut from Autumn Terracotta card stock (Cricut page 55, 2 1/4 inches) including its compatible Black border using the Layer key. The black embossing powder scattered a bit, but that's A-Okay. I think it would have looked cool to have more of that! Maybe I'll stipple some black over the whole label.
Here's my tag again below. Now keep on hopping to check out all the other creations. Head over to Adeline Brill's blog next. And have a Wicked day!
