Halloween Tags

It's time for the monthly Papertrey Ink blog hop!  The challenge was to make a set of five tags.  All of the tags in the inspiration photo were for Christmas, but I really wanted to make some Halloween tags.  I plan to give my seminary students a little treat next week and these tags will be perfect.  :)

Warning:  lots of photos ahead.  I went a little crazy with the camera.

Aren't they cute?  I got my inspiration from tags done by Audrey Tokach and posted on her blog Pink Ink Originals here.  She used stamps by Mama Elephant, but I pulled out several of my Halloween sets by Papertrey Ink.  As I was putting these all together, I was squealing over the cuteness.  I really love how they turned out!  Here are closeups of each tag.

So much fun!  I mixed up images from five different stamp sets.  I may have a weakness for Halloween sets.  Just sayin'.  :D  I popped up parts of them for dimension.

The tags are pretty straightforward.  I diecut the spiderwebs and adhered them in the upper right corner.  I diecut and stamped my various Halloween images, although the bats and skeleton were hand cut.  I used Copic markers to color one of the pumpkins and also to add a little color to the sentiment on each tag.

It felt so good to be creating again.  This year has been tough on me and studio time has been rather sporadic.  I really need to be in there more often.  It's my happy place!  :)
