Grungy Halloween Tags
Sometimes I just have to make time to stamp. As I was writing up the tutorial from Tera Callihan, I knew I wanted to give it a try. I really enjoyed making the background following the steps she carefully described- and here are 4 tags (maybe to turn into a book?) I made this morning before I headed into work to press out rubber for the day.
And of course my favorite one is the bat boy one. I have always loved that image.
Stamps I used for the backgrounds: circle, handwriting, measurement bar, and gear
For the other stamps I used: bat boy, heart drip (right), tree, filmstrip, airship, evil man, top ten

Halloween Mini Canvasboard
Here's a fun and festive Halloween stamping project using one of our most popular stamps, pumpkin parade. Here's Tina Walker with another great how-to with rubber stamping and Simmerz Inklingz. Enjoy!
Hello! Tina Walker here with a Guest Designer project. In the spirit of the Halloween season, I thought it would be fun to create a fun little Halloween Canvasboard project.
I needed to create a ghoulish background, so I added strips of vintage dictionary paper, distress paint, and modeling paste to a sheet of canvasboard.
I then stamped 6289X on the same paper. The ink didn't completely fill in the image, so I painted the image with black paint. I also added some Shimmerz Inklingz to the image and fussy cut all stamped images.
I layered the stamped images on my canvasboard, added a few whimsical embellishments and my Mini Halloween scene was complete!
Creating a mixed media project doesn't have to be hard or complex. Stamps make it super easy (and fun) to create!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Stamped Halloween Projects
I have some wonderful Halloween Projects by designer Teresa Abajo to share with you. Teresa lives in Australia and she says they don't celebrate Halloween as much as we do here in the US, but she loves crafting it up come October. Today I am sharing two cards, a beautiful tag, and a little tiny Moo Card to really get you in the Spooky Sprit.
This card is made with The Trick or Treat Shilouette, and the Trick or Treat! from the Halloween Cling Set. To create the background she used Distress Inks.
All of these projects were created with the Halloween Cling Set. You can visit Teresa's blog to get a bit more details on these projects. They are just awesome! There's still time to get your Spooky Crafting in.
BOO! (don't forget about our Moo Card Contest!)

A Raven Pocket - Stamping on Fabric
I get asked a lot if you can stamp on fabric. And unfortunately it's not a simple yes or no answer it depends on a lot of things; the image, how much detail you need, the ink used, the fabric you are stamping on, and the surface. This is an example of a large image, The Large Raven, and "Nevermore." stamped with Jet Black stAzon, on muslin fabric. As you can see not all of the detail was captured onto the fabric, but the overall outcome is pretty spiffy.
This is was a quick little project my sister and I worked on before our local parade - you wouldn't believe how much candy fit into that pocket! This may not answer all of your fabric-stamping questions, but it gives you an idea of one project idea that combines sewing with stamping!
