TSG Blog Hop: If the shoe fits…

I’m back! Are you ready for more Halloween?  Yes, I knew you were and I have another fun set to sneak peek today!

Halloween Tags Blog Hop Challenge

It’s another SUPER fun set from Melyssa, one that will get you ready for all your Halloween gift giving ideas! Not only is it a PERFECT tag set, the sentiments and image could be used for cards, scrapbooking, and anything else you desired!


Halloween Tags is a 4x8 set that includes a total of 19 stamps and will sell for $18.00.


I decided to switch things up and alter a couple of metal tins that I’ve had in my collection for… well, quite some time. I already have homes planned for these lovelies, thus the names added to the sides of the tin using label letters and washi tape.

These were very quick to make and I used up some scraps of stuff I had sitting on my desk from other projects – die cut leaves and checkered washi tape. To start I wrapped some designer paper around the bottoms of the tins and then added the names.


I used the coordinating Silhouette cut file to cut out the tags and then stamped the frame image in Tangerine Tango ink on the tag.  I stamped each tag with a different image from the set (one that suited my niece and one that would be a little more boyish for my nephew).  It needed a little more pizazz so I added dots around the edges using a white gel pen and then added some polka dot organdy ribbon.  Behind the tag there is some burlap ribbon, a die cut branch of leaves and a bit of washi tape.  To finish I added some rhinestones.


Would you like to win the new Halloween Tags stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post. 

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday, September 28th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.
