Stampin’ Up! Tricky Treats Happy Halloween

Tricky Treats plaid halloween bat 2

Remember the old song, “What a difference a day makes.  twenty-four little hours…” I found myself humming, “What a difference an eye makes…” today as I created this cute bat tag.

The finishing touch on this little bat was adding the adhesive-backed googly eyes.  What a difference?  It took it from cute to adorable!  You’re friends will love this cute little guy with his googly eyes, and this little greeting card is quick to create.

To create this card I started with a Basic Black cardstock base. I centered my Labels Collection Framelit on the front, secured it with post it notes and ran it through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  I backed it with plaid Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper.  I used a smaller label framelit to cut out the center piece.  Everything was adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the bat tag from the Tricky Treats stamp set with Basic Black Craft ink and embossed it with Black Emboss Powder, after sprinking it with a just a touch of Iridescent Ice Emboss Powder for a hint of glitter.  Be careful not to mix the embossing powders.

The bat tag was punched with a circle punch and was added to the center with a dimensional and then tied to a Tangerine Tango Glimmer at the top with Linen Thread.

An added bonus when backing the label cut-out on front is the fun pattern that shows on the interior.  A Happy Halloween sentiment from the Seasonal Sayings Stamp Set was stamped in the middle with Tangerine Tango ink.
