Welcome to the second day of our Halloween Hustle. I truly enjoy crafting for Halloween, probably at least as much as I enjoy Christmas. But now I'm getting ahead of myself, so let's proceed with the projects, shall we. :)

My project for today is two tag cards that can be done quickly with stamps and a few dies, or you can go into a little more detail as I did and do some paper piecing, coloring, and embellishing.

This hat, that fits her perfectly, is a 2x2 die from Quickutz. I think this is my most favorite use of it since it joined my collection years ago! The broom is also a die (Cottage Cutz, I believe but don't quote me). I added stickles to her ginger hair and orange pebbles to her hat.

The base tag is by My Creative Time. I used both dies when I made my cut so I could get the scallop edge on the top and the arrow edge on the bottom. I added mesh tape for visual interest and texture, as well as more pebbles to her dress and a button for fun above the sentiment flag.

The adorable pumpkins are dies from My Creative Time....can you guess what they are? The Christmas ornaments die from the Warm Holiday Fun stamp and die set! I cut the pumpkin stems by hand and added leaves from My Creative Time, Piles of Smiles, which is also where you will find the sentiment. The swirly flourishes are a Quickutz 4x4 die.

For this one, I used a different Prima doll stamp also with a Halloween theme. I've paper pieced her dress as well, and used several dies, stamps and paper scraps to embellish.

I added a feather and bling to her hat because it's cool! The black bling was a gift from bff, Nikki. It's perfecto as a belt!

Sentiment and flag by My Creative Time, as well as the background stamps and leaves. Pumpkin dies by Peachy Keen.

Arrow die, label die and sentiment by My Creative Time. Bats stamp also by MCT.

Again, you don't have to get all fancy or time consuming if you need a quick project. You can use dimensional stickers instead of die cuts, pre-made tags, your cricut cartridge for the doll, and whatever sentiment you like! Just have fun!
