VLVS! Blog Hop Day 1!!

I'm pretty excited to get to this! We've had this little baby planned for a while.. welcome to Viva Las VegaStamps!' All Hallow's Eve party!!


We've got seven days of inspiration from each designer on the team and you're bound to find SOMETHING that inspires you to get in the mood for Halloween!! 

We're also giving your prompts each day to earn a spot in a drawing... because each day we're giving away a fabulous prize! 


For the inspiration the DT and I have the criteria of doing some Halloween based project with at least one stamp from one of the two following boards:
 or 



And here is my first project!! I've been working scene stamping, and gotta say.. I'm loving it! My tags aren't over the top with embellishments, but I think with scene stamping instead they feel more... rustic sort of. And just as cool as embellished tags!

 The stamps I used are:




The background was made with Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint distress ink on a white #8 tag. I also used Walnut Stain and Archival Black ink by ranger. I stamped the boy and dog on kraft paper in Archival ink as well. The burlap string is courtesy of May Arts.

Now absolutely be sure to keep hopping and follow today's prompt for a chance at the prize!!

Thank you!

  3. ooooooo Love this, especially the perspective you did (meaning the h house far up the hill and the boy/dog close up! It reminds me of To Kill a Mockingbird when Jen takes on the dare to touch Boo Radley's front door. The distressed edge of the tag add SO much as added texture! Thank you for always inspiring me!

  5. What a great tag! I love the stamp choices. The kid stamp reminds me of Pugsley. I love the idea of stamping on the kraft paper and ten cutting out the images. It gives it so much depth. Great job! tfs Tami
