The Doctor is In!

WARNING: If you are easily offended or don't like strange or creepy themes this card may not be for you

Hello again everyone!!! It's me again, today I am going to share the card I created for the VLVS Shaped Halloween Card swap on the Facebook VLVS Groupies page If you are not a member I recommend joining, So much fun and inspiration going on over there!!! 

Stamps Used: 

Coffee Ring Stain 2 3/4 x 2 1/4

Other Supplies-- 
A4 card cut into a file folder shape
Ink- Archival Black, Distress ink- Frayed Burlap, scattered straw, black soot, brick red
scrap paper (for making masks)
Marker Sprayer for distressing
make-up sponge or distress tool for additional shading
Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher/stapler 

Sizzix Movers & Shapers Die - Tag & Tie 

Scraps of orange paper (for the circles on the tag)cord/string
Black marker (fine point for writing and drawing lines) 
water spritzer optional
score tool/board optional
File folder to trace top of (or you can wing it! lol) 
Glossy Accents (or Glue of choice) 

To Begin cut your card Base - 8.5x 5.5 score or fold at 4.5 This gives you the long and short side of your file. On the long side trace the tab of your file , then on the short side trace the inward dip (make sure they are on the same side so it looks right). Cut out your base and admire ho cute this mini file is!

I start by stamping/drawing all of my masked off images in archival black ink: the Doctor was stamped then stamped on scrap paper to create a "mask" to protect it while i work, For the Rx pad, I traced my acrylic stamping block with a black marker leaving one corner open so i could draw it to look like folded paper. (You can also trace a post it not in your size of choice and you will save yourself from cutting out a "mask" for this.) I then traced it again on scrap paper to create a mask (and just folded the corner of the mask to match what i drew rather than guessing)

Next, stamp the skull, Rx pad with the Rx label from the Rx stamp (I cup mine out, so i can use it separate and still use the cute note box on other pieces : D ), and using the Type letters from plate 1430  I stamped out the J. Kevorkian (AKA "Dr. Death" get it a Rx for death, from Dr. Death himself... hehe) The Tiny #'s are numbers from the corners of the Plates of rubber : P Also stamp the patient (aka pt.) Name that you would like... Mine is patient X1446

Now, place both of your "mask" on to cover up your focal pieces. Get out your scattered straw ink and a makeup sponge and add color over the entire front of the card (careful not to move your masks). Set this aside to dry while you do this next step...

On a separate piece of paper stamp the "Radioactive" in red , then cut it out to look like a rectangle medical sticker "chart note"... Using the black soot distress the edge so that this will pop against the background! Also While you have the red out stamp the "Do Not Read This!" on the file tab
  (After All this is a confidential patient file!) 
Attach the radioactive "sticker" using your tiny attacher/stapler

Back  to the file, Sporadically stamp the dictionary page stamp to distress the file....Remove your masks (admire your clean we are going to grunge it up more!) Using your frayed burlap distress ink, ink up the coffee ring stamp (I spritzed my stamp with water at this point to give it the wet/watery coffee look but you don't have too) then stamped as if coffee had sat on the file and Rx script

Take the marker spritzer with the black soot Distress marker and add some grunge all over where you feel it's to "clean" and bright!  

Cut out the tab in plain card stock (bread tie looking thing) then 2 of the reinforcing circles in orange .  Distress the pieces with the frayed burlap, then glue the circles on the front and back to reinforce the piece to look like the "Toe Tag". Tie yours cord around it and attach with the tiny attacher

Enjoy your spooktacular work!!!

A Vintage Game Of Tag

Hello, Its Me Tera here again with another fun project to share that I created for Viva Las VegaStamps! 
Today I am sharing a fun Vintage themed Tag that I created. 

I started  with a base of patterned paper by Prima, and a main focal image that I wanted to build around. 
(From here I really got into the swing of everything and forgot to take progress shots as I went so bare with me while I try to explain my madness :-D) 

 I started by stamping Chicken Wire 3 3/4 x 4 1/2 randomly on the background in frayed burlap. 

Next I stamped the Big Ben 1 3/4 x 4 1/4 on the left side in VersaFine Sepia.
 I also inked and distressed around the edges in various shades of browns.  On a separate sheet of paper I stamped the Bearded Man 2 1/4 x 2 1/4  in verafine black and distressed it with versafine sepia. I also stamped the #7 from Plate 1430  then embossed it with black embossing powder before i cut it out and distressed it.  At the top right I stamped Butterfly Specimens 1 1/2 x 4 1/2 then also embossed it in black. To finish things off I added some film strip by Tim Holtz to the side, as well as some random spots of Tim Holtz washi tape. I popped up the 2 pieces on pop-dots, then embellished with UmWow Studio Gears

Below are a few more detail pictures :-D
