Trick or Treat?

I promise I have no tricks this week  (well not the bad kind)  just lots of yummy treats.

So I started with three 1"x 3" mailing labels placed on some parchment paper (shiny side up) so I can peel them off when I'm done with decorating them

I then stamped my "Halloween Candy" image in Memento Black ink on them

I then colored them with Promarkers

I used Glossy Accents on the candy apple. I was worried it'd be too stiff if I let it dry before putting on the chocolate nuggets so I put it on while it was still wet and it settled on the bottom like I was worried it would BUT it actually looks more authentic that way :)

I used Spellbinders dies to cut out the topper of both the halloween patterened paper and the pugnacious cream colored paper.  I used the "You Need To Dust" stamp on the cream stock, used the Lil Inkers and distressed the whole thing I then folded them both in half and attached to the top of the baggie with the candy inside (using One and Only Tape).  I trimmed a piece of ribbon that has the sentiment "Happy Halloween" on it and then attached two little black jems on either end.

I also made this little treat box using a pre-made box  and stamped the Bat Motel stamp colored with Promarkers and cut it out and attahed to the front.

The tag on the back side is actually a clear tag but since it was hard to see I glued a piece of orange patterned paper to it using scrap happy glue I used a sponge to spread it evenly (you can't even see the glue-you can use this on velum too).

this is an example of the clear tag before using colored paper to back it.

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully you liked my treats.

So the drawing had to be re-done we have 3 unclaimed ink pad sets ... I could not keep them !
