Not A Card - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge



 Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


    Featuring stamps and dies by


You do not have to use the featured company to join in.

But… If you have some of their product in your stash

We would LOVE to see them used.

Here is my take on this challenge.

My stamp and dies sets of choice for this challenge are

Halloween Doodles (CMS437) by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous

 Mini Stencil Set 23 (THMST023) by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous

Stacked Baroque Thinlits Dies (662693) by Tim Holtz/ Sizzix

Tattered Banners Decorative Strips (657179) by Tim Holtz/ Sizzix

To start this tag, I die cut one of the Baroque shapes out of white card stock.

Using Wilted Violet Distress Ink, I stared in the center of the tag and inked outward.

Prize Ribbon was next. I added this ink around the edges leaving a patch of purple in the center.

To darken up the edges of the tag I used a generous amount of Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.

I put the tag aside to dry and turned my attention to the stamp set.

I just love the poison bottles in the Halloween Doodles Stamp Set.

Three of these fit on the front of this tag comfortably.

I stamped out my three tags and colored them in using bold colors.

I bit of Glossy Accents make the poison look dangerous.

Back to the tag.

Using the skull and crossbones from the Mini Stencil Set 23 and

 Black Soot Distress Ink I stenciled on my image.

While the stenciled part was still wet, I used my water sprayer and flicked on a bit of water.

I let the water wick for a minute and then dabbed it off with a paper towel.

I put the tag aside again to dry and worked on the sentiment.

Tattered Banners Decorative Strips and Black Black8 Card Stock.

I simple die cut out the banner and folded it so that it fit nicely on the front of the tag.

I wrote on “drink me!” with a white gel pen.

Before I assemble the tag, I decided I wanted it to look a bit weathered.

Using a sanding block, I striped some of the edges of color exposing the white cardstock.

I also added a black edge around the whole tag using an alcohol marker.

To assemble this tag, I  decided on the placement of my poison bottles.

 I propped two of the bottles with foam tape.

I also added the banner to the front.

This completes my take on NOT A CARD
