Lyla’s family has long enjoyed this holiday becoming The SCARImores instead of The Larimores. She has taken the idea of visits to haunted houses, and created a paper one all our own- complete with surprises! She used a Tim Holtz Frightful Things Die Set along with Haunted House and Gatekeeper Die Sets. This little house pops out of a tag to scare the daylights out of you!

Andrea went in a quirky zombie direction with her tag. She used Impression Obsession’s Zombie Sayings stamp set, Whimsy Stamps’ Monster Parade dies, and Papertrey Ink’s Haunted House dies to create her scene.

Anna-Karin made a tag featuring a spooky house. She used Tim Holtz Ghost Town 2 die set for the house and the ghosts were die cut from vellum with the Halloween Vault Series set.

Barbara was inspired by the new Sizzix Village Collection by Tim Holtz. She created a spooky Manor using Idea-ology Halloween Tiny Lights, a lot of Ranger Distress Ink Sprays Stain, Idea-ology Mummy Cloth Trimmings, Simon Says Stamp Cardstock Black, Ranger Distress Crayons Metallics set

Cheiron created a spooky tag using the new Villainous Potion Distress Oxide Spray combined with Black Soot and Twisted Citron Distress Spray Stain. She embossed her tag with the Sizzix Arched Texture Fades and added a Skeleton Leaves, a photo from the Halloween Idea-ology Paper Dolls and some words from the Halloween Idea-ology Curiosities Sticker Book.

Emma couldn’t resist making a home decor piece for Halloween and she used the brand new Sizzix Village Collection by Tim Holtz and Mini Cobblestone 3D Texture Fade to create a spooky cottage, mounted on a Vignette Box and complete with Tiny Lights that shine through shattered windows.

Kath created an Art Journal page, an invitation to all the trick and treaters to visit The Count in his creepy Halloween Confections garden, if they dare. She used Tim Holtz/Sizzix The Count, Festive Bouquet and Small Tattered Florals Thinlits, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Deco Arch Layering Stencil with Distress Crackle Texture Paste and Distress Grit Paste, Distress Mica Crayons to add some spooky shimmer and Idea-ology Halloween Confections for the flower centres.

Macarena made a purple tag with a moth using Tim Holtz Specimen and Weird Science stamps set. She heat embossed the skeleton with Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder Fine Detail and added some Tim Holtz Idea-ology elements.

Maura created a spooky scene in her Dina Wakley Media Journal, using Tim Holtz and Sizzix Halloween 2021 Thinlits dies, Simon Says Stamp Spider Web stamp, and Daniel Smith watercolors like Quinacridone Coral.

Meihsia was inspired to create a spooky Halloween tag using the Crafter’s Workshop White Modeling Paste on the background and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Halloween Paper Doll and Ephemera Pack.

Sandra made a Halloween card using the Moon Masks and all kinds of purple like Distress Oxide Wilted VioletDistress Spray Stain Dusty ConcordDistress Crayon Seedless Preserves and Infusions Blackcurrant

Zoey used Distress Paint to color the background of her tag. She used Distress Grit Paste through Tim Holtz Layering Stencil GEARS and some disterss spray stain to add more color. She also stamped over plain collage paper and added texture to the background. She used Tim Holtz Idea Ology ephemera for the cluster and a beautiful stamped moth as decoration.

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
