Happy Halloween!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope that this Halloween finds you well and in the mood for some treats! My craft room looks like a tornado went through it so after some last minute shopping for Halloween costume supplies that I forgot to pick up, I will have to put my scrap haven in some kind of order. Today, I would like to share with you my last Halloween project of the year featuring Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps.

This tag was super fun as it was chock full of different techniques. I dry embossed the background and swiped some Tim Holtz Embossing Ink over the whole thing. I sprinkled some two-toned embossing powder over it and heat embossed. Then, I went over the white areas with TH Distress Ink in Rusty Hinge. See those super cute and super fun stamps? I used the Pumpkin Clear Stamps Set 2, along with the coordinating Pumpkin die. I love how Prickley Pear has several stamp sets with coordinating dies! When I use these, I know that I will not have to do ANY fussy cutting, which is something that I don't enjoy, because it is too time consuming and I am too impatient!!!  Here are a couple more photos for your enjoyment! :)

Look at all of the texture and shimmer!
