Halloween Somethings

Happy Halloween and Happy Friday!!

Our challenge this week over on STAMP SOMETHING is of course, Halloween Somethings! Share your spooky and spectacular Halloween ideas with us and you'll be entered in our blog candy chance! This week we have a special blog candy offer too, one lucky winner will be chosen to design along with us for two challenges in November! So for a chance at a guest design spot, be sure to submit your best work and something that has the theme of Halloween! Have fun!

My project is one I made for my son's kindergarten class. They are having a party today to celebrate Halloween and parents were asked to supply some items. So what better than candy corn treat bags for the kiddos and some nugget candies for the teachers!

For the treat bags, I stamped the cellophane bags with black Staz-On ink and then filled each with candy corn candies and tied on a scalloped circle tag with black hemp twine. The images and sentiments are from Haunting Halloween. I used watercolor crayons and aquapainters to color the image. I had to make 20 of these, so I kept them simple!

The nuggets have been wrapped with Halloween themed designer paper and then packaged in metal tins. I wrapped some ribbon around the tin and added a tag similar to the bag tags. These are two very simple and easy to create Halloween treat ideas!

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to check out all the Halloween haunts the design team has created this week! If you would like to be considered for the guest spot blog candy, be sure to have your project entered on or before Thursday, November 6th by 7pm EST! We'll announce the winner that evening! Happy Stamping!! :)

edit to add:
Hi again! Our fellow DT member and friend Cindy, is experiencing some blog troubles and technical difficulties at the moment. She made this fabulous card for our challenge today, but it might be hard for you to see it on her blog. It has been posted, however it's showing up at the end of her page. We hope that things will work out for her soon and everything will be back up and running as normal!
Please hang in there Cindy! And if you are a friend or follower of Cindy's blog, be sure to keep checking in. And if you like amazingly creative ideas, be sure to stop by her blog often too! You won't be disappointed! :)
