PERFECT PARTNERS...

We are still partnering up with Altered Pages!!

I made 4 tags with SinCity Stamps and Altered Pages products.

SUPPLIES:
First, I get all my supplies together.  I always take out too much!! lol!



I made my backgrounds first.  2 tags I sprayed with Dylusions and 2 tags I used "Halloween Bingo" on orange cardstock and adhered it to the tags.  I inked the edges of the tags too.


Next I stamped my images.  For the Sugar Skulls, I used a marker to color the stamp.  Then I breathed, or "huffed" on it to get the stamp warm so the ink would transfer to the paper.  An old technique but so awesome!  It was perfect for the Sugar Skulls!!
I also cut out images from my collages.


Now the fun part!  Putting the tags together!

I stamped some spiders on the tag and added the orange cardstock with "Halloween Bingo" stamp.  Then I added a gauze, punchinella, a collage image and my sugar skull.  I finished it off with some skull ribbon on top.


For this tag, I used the Dylusions Spray Ink on the background and stamped the Roman Numerals, to make the number 13.  I added the skull from the collage sheet, some trim and rope.

Again, I started with Dylusions on the tag.  I added a fun orange card and a collage image.  I stamped the bottles on a tag and cut them out.  I added a rope bow to a bottle and finished with some trim.

My last tag uses the "Halloween Bingo" on orange cardstock again.  Then I added punchinella, a piece of the collage sheet and a stamped Sugar Skull.  I finished with some trim and the skull ribbon.

Thanks for visiting today!  I hope you click the links and get some AWESOME Halloween stuff for your own projects!!

Sympathy Cards with Pam Bray

Hi it is Pam here today on the #SinCity Stamps Blog...it has been sometime since I have shared with you. Today though I want to show you some of the cards that I have made over the last few weeks using my SinCity Stamps Sympathy Set. I designed the Sympathy set because quite honestly there isn't any on the market to purchase...WELL all I can say is there is now. So make sure to check them out in the SinCity Store because they are a steal at $20.00 for the set. 
 All the sentiments are handwritten to give the intimacy that we want when we are sending out a Sympathy Card and I have made sure you have a nice selection of sentiments.
 I love flowers so most of the sets I design will have at least one flower on it. I know this flower will become one of your favorites as it has already become one of mine. I like to stamp my images several times on pattern paper and fussy cut them out, roll the petals a bit and layer them together with pop dots. It just gives great dimension to your cards.
 Don't you just love the Cross...I do!!!! My Thank You sentiment is actually from my #Memories Set which is another new stamp set available in the SinCity Store
I hope you have enjoyed my cards today and check out all the stamps, chipboard, stencils and masks that are available in the store. See you again real soon, hugs Pammejo

Sin City Stamps and Altered Pages Halloween Tag

Hello, Peggy here to show you my halloween tag inspired by our sponsored partners Altered Pages and our fabulous Sin City Stamps.

Suplies used today are:
Stazon Ink
Patterned cardstock G45
Foam stickers
Scissors
Ribbon
Black Accents
Black Pen


 I stamped my images onto G45 patterned paper 
with stazon ink and accented the dots on the 
balloon with black accents.
 I fussy cut all of the images.
I cut out my own tags using
 a ruler and drawing straight lines to help 
ensure an accurate scallop on top.

I put all of the pieces together using foam
 adhesive dots. Finally adding the collaged
Words and a shadow to each of the 
blocked collaged words with a black pen.
A black ribbon on top brings it together.

"Over Treetops Fly The Witches 
Happy To Bring Toils And Twitches"

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and I encourge you
to stop by Sin City Stamps for your stamping, 
chipboard and stenciling needs. A big thank you to our 
sponsor's please take a moment to visit their page
Warmly

Halloween Layout

Today is my second post for SinCity Stamps.
August is a little early for Halloween but we are
doing a cross promotion with Altered Pages 
 This half of the month for them is all about Halloween.


I am not much of a Halloween gal but I love the images from Altered Pages .





Supplies:
Sin City Stamps: 
Altered Pages
white and orange acrylic paint
home made texture paste
drywall tape
paper from my stash.
I also used an older sketch from Sketchabilities.

I chose my paper and all the goodies I wanted for my layout.


I added any paint that I wanted... spattered on the patterned paper
I also painted the gears and outlined all Halloween collage papers.

I added dry wall tape and then added homemade texture paste.
Then I decided to peel off dry wall tape.
I added paint and black gesso.



I then started to layer.
The envelope first.. then the collage papers.
I added the gears last. 
I added a tag that I will add a picture to.
I love the depth of this layout.






Thank you for stopping by today.
I really enjoyed making this Halloween layout.
