Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring The Greeting Farm "Sweet n Toxic"

Hello and welcome to the Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!  Our challenge this week is TRICK OR TREAT.  You can create a "TRICK" = Create a Moving Card or some element of your card that is moveable OR a "TREAT" = Make a Halloween Treat Holder.

Our wonderful sponsor for this week's challenge is Eureka Stamps!!

So since I love sweets, I went with the "Treat" and here is my project...

This is a treat bag I made using some envelopes from Recollections.  I often use their corrugated cards as a base.  However, since my embellies are so dimensional, I can't fit them into the envelopes they come with.   So I found this brilliant idea on You tube.  This idea was created by Yolanda who is SoCrafty100 on You Tube.  You can find her tutorial here.  She has beautiful creations using these envelopes and so does Bona who is LiveLoveScrap on YT.  You can check out her channel to see the creations she has made.  I was so thrilled to find this clever idea and have since been seeing a bunch of gorgeous projects out there.  I just had to join in on the fun!  Thank you so much Yolanda and Bona for for your shares!!! :)  Now my treat bag has many details but the star of this project is the cute gal from The Greeting Farm's "Sweet n Toxic"set.   I just think she is the cutest thing and I love those skulls in her hair!  She is so perfect for Halloween! I colored her up with my copics and cut her out. The paper collection I used is called "Wicked" by My Mind's Eye and I used many of the fun cutouts in this collection.  I have some fun creepy hands on the side, some little spiders and of course I had to throw in some cobwebs!  On the top, I added a Halloween fence which I made using a Martha Stewart punch I have. I glossy accented it which looks pretty cool.  I added some black trims I had in my stash also and then filled it with some candies. Don't you love the RIP lollipop?!  I also covered a Hershey's chocolate bar with the design paper too.

So I have more pics to show you and I apologize that I have so many on this post.  However,  there are a lot of details on this project and I really wanted to share it with you all!  So here we go....
