I'm over on the Brutus Monroe Blog with these fun little Halloween tags! These were so fun and easy to make, and they have so many possible uses. I used them here on some Canvas Corp paper bags filled with popcorn, but you could clip them on candy bags, use them on cards, or they could be gift tags. Use your imagination and get creative!
If you want to see how I created these tags, go ahead and watch the process video!
I started out by using my circle punch and I punched four circles out of watercolor paper. Then, I stamped one witch face on each circle using Brutus Monroe's "Witch, Please" stamp set. I stamped each face out with Versamark black ink, and then quickly sprinkled some clear embossing powder over the ink before it dried. This gives me a nice black, shiny embossed image!
I then used Brutus Monroe's Shimmer Sprays to color each circle with a different color. I hit the Shimmer Spray with my heat tool to speed up the drying process and then grabbed my white gel pen to color in a few details on the stamped image. I felt that highlighting some of the details with the gel pen really made the image pop!
Next, I grabbed a sheet of Canvas Corp's Black and White Ribbon Stripe paper and punched out four scalloped circles slightly larger than my watercolor paper circles and adhered them behind.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiments on a little strip of paper and adhered them to each tag.
I also used some Canvas Corp Mini Clothespins to clip the tags to each popcorn bag. Super cute, easy, and sure to bring a smile to your Halloween guest's faces!
As you can see, my little munchkin couldn't wait to get his hands into the popcorn! How fun would these treat bags be on a Halloween buffet or candy bar? Let guests fill their own little bags full of treats and toys to take home with them.

Hey, friends! It is Wednesday so that means I'm over on the Brutus Monroe blog again with a new card!
Brutus Monroe recently released their new Halloween-themed stamps from the Carson Collection. This collection has two new stamps created by the animator, Chuck Carson. Chuck is an amazing illustrator and you can find more of his work at his website, The Animated Pencil.
Anyway, I used the scarecrow stamp on this week's card, so if you want to see more photos and a description of how I created this fun card, head over toBrutus Monroe's Blog!
Also, while you are over there, don't forget to check out all the wonderful craft goodies they have in store! Stamps, inks, stencils, embossing powders... lots of fun stuff! They even have digital SVG files and some of them are totally FREE!
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!
Im keeping it short and sweet with this little card today!
I think incorporating your photos into your cards is a wonderful way to share those special pictures with friends and family. I know receiving a card with photos of my nieces and nephews on it would make my day!
I made this card with my son's grandparents in mind.
First, I cut the little polaroid frame with my Cricut. I also wrote the word "smile" on the frame using my Cricut and a Rushon Petite pen that I fit into the pen holder. I had to test it a few times before I got the pen in just the right spot, but it worked!
For the background, I used a stamp from Prima, added some Ground Espresso Distress Ink to it, and then misted it all over with a mini mister. I stamped the background first on a scrap paper, and then stamped again on the actual card. So the background is actually a second generation stamp image.
Then, I layered my embellishments on top! I fit the photo into the frame, and then layered different bits of scrap papers and a few stickers around it.
Its basically scrapbooking... but on a card!
I have a pack ofCanvas Corp postcards and lately they have just been begging me to be decorated. I decided to go ahead and decorate them to send to my nieces and nephews.
I have a Stampin Up! ice cream cone stamp set that I thought would be fun to create a super tall ice cream cone with. I first stamped the ice cream scoops onto some post it note paper, then cut out the image to use for a mask. Each time I stamped a scoop, I covered it with the mask and then stamped another scoop over the top in order to stack the scoops on top of each other.
Then, I used a bit of Distress Ink to ink around the edges. A little Versafine Black Onyx ink was perfect for stamping my sentiments with. To finish, I glued on a little bow and added some glittery Stickles to the pink postcard.
Canvas Corp postcards are 4x6 in size, and they are able to be sent through the mail like a regular postcard. I decided to put my postcards into an envelope to send them together. I also added in some cute die cuts that I thought the kids might like to play with.
Super easy and cute! If you do ever decide to send a decorated postcard of your own, it might help to just ask your postal worker for some tips, and if it meets postal regulations.

I'm over on the Brutus Monroe blog today with this fun and easy card! I used the free SVG cut files from their store to build those cute popsicles.
If you want more details on how I created this pop on over to Brutus Monroe and take a look!
Also, dont forget to check out their STORE. They have so many great stamps, ink, and papers. One of my favorite features of their store is that they have FREE digital cut files! Most of the cut files coordinate with the stamp sets, but even if you don't own the stamps, you can get creative with these cuts.
Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
