For the Bags:
The Ghost Chipboard Embellishments were my inspiration for these cute bags. To prep those, I covered them in Versamark Ink and heat embossed them using thick embossing powder. This created a very heavy coating with only one application.
I created these bags using heavyweight cardstock and a steel die.
I then stitched panels from halloween paper and layered them on.
I used the Ghost Chipboard Embellishments on the flap of both bags. To finish them off, I simply added a few embellishements.
For the Tag:
First, grab a tag from the Acrylic Tag Album set and a few alcohol inks. Prepare to create the three bands of color exhibited on candy corn.
Remove the protective film from one side of the tag only. Leave the other side of the tag protected with the film for an easy cleanup. Using painter's tape and a heat gun, begin layering ink starting from the top with white, working your way down shades of pink.
Once that is completed, set it to the side to finish drying.
Begin working on your Mini Ghost Shaker. Of course I decided to heat emboss the top layer. I wanted a dimensional and glossy look for my ghost.
I then covered the back piece of the shaker in white cardstock and added in my shaker mix. Assemble the shaker together, remembering to remove the protective film from the acetate ghost layer.
Now that the ghost is completed, grab the tag and remove the remaining protective film. Also grab some embellishments and prepare to decorate.
