It's Friday! This month's Stamp of the Month, Beware, from Clear & Simple Stamps has me feeling a bit "wicked" today. I thought I would create a spooky tag that I could give to my hubby for Halloween (tied to some kind of disgustingly sweet candy -- no one on the planet has a bigger sweet tooth than he does!) Beware includes the uber-cool skull and cross-bones and I gave this creepy fella some glowing eyes by inking up the eyes of one of the pumpkin images in the same set. Hope your day includes some wicked good fun!

  1. Make tag from black card stock. Mat with card stock.
  2. Stamp skull and cross-bones.
  3. Stamp eyes.
  4. Stamp sentiment.
  5. Stamp witch's hat and spider. Shade with marker. Fussy cut and adhere with foam tape.
  6. Punch slit. Thread ribbon and tie.

I just used this same stamp set on some ATCs I just made. Unfortunately, I totally forgot to take a picture before I mailed them off - eek! Anyway, just wanted to say I really like this tag!! :)
