Trick or Treats?

H2H Challenge - Halloween Theme

I may be cheating a bit by combining two posts into one, but I have been overloaded with things needing to be done around here.  As you may notice, I have already cleaned up my desk and checked it off my "to do" list.  Another project completed are the goody bags I made for my nieces and nephews, 8 total (one has been mailed out).  I used primarily CTMH paper from Hooligans to make the bags, but I was running short since I have also made cards and 4 layouts from one Hooligans paper pack, so two of the bags are made using paper from My Mind's Eye.  The images are all digi-stamps which I colored using copics and the pocket was made with an unknown spider's web stamp which I stamped onto vellum with Versamark ink, then embossed with black embossing power.  I cut out the web and attached it to the bag to make the little pocket to hold the name cards.  The bag is made from a Sizzix die using my Cuttlebug.  Hope you all have a wonderful week! 


Paper:  Hooligans Level 2 Paper Pack and The Spider's Web from My Mind's Eye, Vellum, Neenah white cardstock

Inks:  Versamark and Copic markers

Stamps:  Digi-stamps "Charcoal" from Pollycraft and "Devil Billy" and "Wilma the Witch" from Digital Delights, unknown clear spider's web stamp

Misc:  CTMH black embossing powder and CTMH black brads

Tools:  Cuttlebug and Sizzix gift bag die
