Booo!





In this tutorial I used the layered tube “Blue Topaz” from
Barbara Jensen.
This tube  has some awesome layer options and is one of
two totally free tubes with
a tube purchase of just $10 from
before 23rd September.

The fun kit is “Cute Halloween” by
The kit is also available at

You will also need a mask, I used mask 05 from

I used the font



I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 650 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 5 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  resize 95%.

Paste element 11 as a new layer and resize 50%.  Select the interior of the element with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10 and make a new layer below it, copy paper 1 and paste into the selection, deselect, apply the drop shadow to the element and merge it down onto the paper.  Rotate the original copy 10 degrees to the left, rotate the duplicate 20 degrees to the right and resize it another 85%.

Paste element 3 as a new layer, resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 15 as a new layer, resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube as a new layer, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2 as a new layer, resize 45%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4 as a new layer, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7 as a new layer, bring to the top and resize 30%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, resize it another 80% and drag it below the original copy, place both in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 1 as a new layer,  resize 45% and mirror, position between the two pumpkins and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 5 as a new layer on the top, resize 35%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10 as a new layer, resize 35% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 9 as a new layer, resize 20%, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

 Check your layer positions now and make any necessary adjustments.

Paste element 16 as a new layer, resize 22%, duplicate a couple of times, position around the tag and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 28 as a new layer, duplicate tree times rotate one copy 20 degrees to the right, one copy 40 degrees to the right and one 30 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 18 as a new layer, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6 as a new layer, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
