I love doing tags for Halloween. There are so many different ways to use them. I like to do a Tag Display leading up to Halloween as decor. You can make them with your kids and they look great displayed. After Halloween take the tags down and turn it into an adorable mini album. Let's take a look at a few of the tags I created.
Stamps can be a great way to create accents on tags. I started this Spooked Tag by painting the background with orange and purple paints. I then stamped the spider web three times around the tag.
After placing the chipboard down, I realized I needed to stamp another spider web stamp so it would be visible.
I love how the spider webs hang out in the background accenting my chipboard piece. The decorative brad "31" looks great stacked on the chipboard skull. I added more brads and chipboard pieces to the stamped webs, along with the brad word "spooked" which became the title of this tag.
Stamps are also great as focal points. On this tag, this stamp becomes the star. I love the "Labels" Paper but stamping on it, the image would become lost.
So I could use this paper, I simply added white paint to tone down the paper. Now when I stamp the image, it holds up against the paper and takes the lead.
I love the way the skeleton stamp is the focal point on the patterned paper. I sprinkled some black paint around the tag and added a purple swipe of paint to the top of the tage. I hung the decorative brad above his hands, like he was holding it. The final touches are the chipboard piece and sticker at the bottom of the tag.
Stamps can be used to create a stellar background. On this tag I painted it with three colors and then scratched into the paint using a fork.
Next I stamped all over the background using black ink and the happy haunting stamps. I then added the bat brads, pulling up their wings to give them dimension. I added the chipboard sticker at the top as the final piece.
I hope you found some ways to add stamps onto your tags!
