The skeleton is from an earlier stamp set by Tim and cut out.
I plan on cutting the BOO out of Masking material so I can ink that up! How cool will that be?

LOVE IT! And I really love making tags.
So happy Tim Holtz & Sizzix have come up with such amazing Dies and Texture Fades!
This tag will also work perfectly for the both the Grungy Monday 22 challenge at Studio L3 AND the HALLOWEEN or GOTH challenge on the Simon Says Stamp blog.
The background of the tag is done with Mustard Seed Distress Stain, accented with Ripe Perssimons! I stamped the back with the speckled part of the blood stain stamp (Stamper Anonymous CMS068) and the bats (CMS050).
I used the Kraft Glassine paper (LOVE that stuff) amd ran it through the Halloween Words Texture Fade, then accented it with the new Limited Edition Distress Inks in Grape Preserves and Ripe Perssimons!

Kraft Glassine paper run through the POISON Texture Fade, then accented it with the new Limited Edition Distress Inks in Grape Preserves and Black Soot Distress Stain. Then I smooched it into just a bit of Heirloom Gold Perfect Mist!

Our friends are having a "Welcome Home" party, and asked invitee's to write a letter or card of thanks!
I mentioned this to my friend Maggi, who has been SO generous with making Cards for the Troops, and she offered to make a few! WOW. 15! The girl is a machine I swear! But her designs are anything but! Beautiful, beautiful work! A simple, yet elegant style. One I don't share! I tried, I REALLY tried! But in the end, the 'other Jan' came out and did her thing! So all in all, between Maggi and I, we made 25 cards!
THANK YOU MAGGI! YOU rock!
Below are Maggi's, the Spellbinder Queen! I LOVE the Old Jalopy! My personal Favorite!

From my 'roll' of the last couple weeks using the Vintage cabinet card dies and new Halloween texture fade. This insert was done on Cor-dinations Black Magic in orange. I also used Tim's Pennant On the Edge, mini rosette strip and the Mini M&S cat & crow.
|This ATB is done for a swap on the Chubby ATB group. It actually started out as another piece.... But the background made for a great beginning for this block.|
|This is the 'Poe' side. Ten Seconds metal with an image of Edgar from a free Halloween Craft sampler from www.DigitalCollageSheets.com.|
Dabber by Ranger. I cut 'stamps' from foam using the Gears & Clock dies, and stamped onto the black using silver & white dabbers. Remember it was starting out as another piece. Since there are so many layers, you don't really notice that, but it's there.
|Fall in Wisconsin is so lovely and we are fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the state. Wooded, hilly.... The new strip die by Tim Holtz is a great reflection of this time of year! Autumn Gathering cuts a variety of leaves, twigs, nuts....|
The background of the tag was done using Gesso and Distress Stain. Then I stamped the texture pattern (Stampers Anonymous) and dots (Hero Arts) using Twig, the new Distress Limited Edition ink. The pretty scallop on the left is from Sizzix as well as the embossing folder. The tissue tape is by 7 Gypsies. And of course the tag is finished with Adornments by Tim Holtz.
