TE Sneak Peeks: Tag-a-long Halloween

Hello! It is another great day of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions. And I have more Halloween goodness to share. I have oodles of fun making gift bags and tags for Halloween and I’m excited to share that there are a couple new items to help with that.

I collaborated with Taylor on another tag set: Build a Tag 5. I’m always excited to see the final set and what she picked from my ideas and added to complete it (love that spider and tiny tag!). This time around the potion bottles I designed made it into their own little bit set.

Of course, Halloween tags would be lonely without some spooky artwork so the Tag-a-long Halloween set was created. I’m especially happy with the witchy cat so I used him on a tag and some tasty potion bottles on another. Yummy. ;)


I used the tattered edge tag die (cut from potato chip cardstock) and the stitched arched panel as the main layers of my tags. I also added a strip of designer paper from the Build a Scene paper pack.

To create the gooey partially painted look on the arched panel I covered a piece of cardstock with a sheet of adhesive foil (Ranger) and then die cut. I applied Cracked Pistachio Distress Paint over the panel, leaving areas here and there bare. I then mostly dried it with a heat tool and rubbed off some of the still wet paint.


The images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. After die cutting with the coordinating dies I used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush pen here and there. I also applied some Glossy Accents to the eyeballs in the potion bottle.


To finish I stamped a sentiment on woodgrain cardstock and then cut out with an 1 1/8” circle punch. Added a few sequins and a length of orange bakers twine.


So what do you think? Ready to make a few tags for Halloween? I know I want to make more of them!
