Tuesday with Tara {take 415} Sweet Treat Bags!

It’s not too late to put together some sweet little bags of treats before Halloween next week!  I’ve used dies, a stencil and ink all by Tim Holtz for these treats!  One thing I love about the Pumpkin Duo die set, is that you can use just the base layer as a silhouette when you want something simple, like I’ve done here!  It made a really fun window for my treat bags!
I was really hoping the cats from the Mischievous die set would be a good fit with the pumpkins, and they did not disappoint!  Cutting them out of a deep purple/black glitter paper is simply fabulous for Halloween (but they’ll be fun in a variety of colors throughout the year too)!

For the background I trimmed and scored the panel to the size I wanted (slightly larger than the plastic treat bag I filled with candy & tucked inside).  I used a blending tool to ink around the edges to start, then added more color over the entire panel through the linked circle stencil.  The fun finishing touch on these is the Sassy Spooktacular Sentiments by MFT- there’s so many fun ones in this set, I really wish I had more Halloween images to work with (who knew I’d grow to enjoy Halloween makes?)!

I used small treat bags to fill with candy, then put them in place with adhesive tape before folding over the Cardstock and punching holes for my ribbon.  I forgot to take a photo of the back of these, but it’s really nothing fancy- just a rectangle of cardstock folded over a bag.  You could definitely make it a bit fancier by creating a triangular pouch with scores at the bottom so it stood up, but these are super simple and perfect to go in my little treat bucket!

These little goodie bags went together pretty quick & easy and are such a fun way to add a handmade touch to your Halloween Treats!  We don’t get many trick-or-treaters at our house, so it was no problem making enough to go around 🙂

Hope you have a sweet day!

Inky hugs,

Tuesday with Tara {take 369} Sweet Treats!

Happy Tuesday!

Today’s make is a quick & easy one, but I hope it inspires you to look outside the box for fun ways to DIY some sweet treats for Halloween!

I’m sharing a mini-makeover on some fun lollipops that are triangular.  They were marked down significantly because they were originally from EASTER (wrapped in a cello bag with a green topper). I removed the bags and started to think pumpkins & candy corn… so I knew I could do something fun to make these into Halloween treats!  After looking around at my options that would be a good fit, I decided on more of the Mishcievous Cat Dies by Tim Holtz!  Several of the cats I had cut out for my treat bags (from the So Sweet Inspiration hop) were a perfect fit so I cut even more and adhered them to the lollipops.  Seriously, the hardest part of this project was cutting and releasing the dies from Glitter Cardstock.  Adhering them was easy when I applied Be Creative Tape to the back of the Cardstock before running it through my Big Shot!

I seriously love how cute these turned out!  Sometimes the easy things are the most visually appealing!  In this case, there’s just something about that shiny hard candy against a whimsical, glittery black cat 🙂

Hope you have a sweet day!  If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out the So Sweet Inspiration Hop!

Inky hugs,

Have a FaBOOlous Day

Wow, it’s the last week of October already! That means it’s time to finish off any Halloween prep you might need to do, you know, like buying your favourite Halloween treats. 😉  And if you like to send Halloween cards, it’s time to get them in the mail! I’m here with possibly the least spooky card you can imagine, for today’s Random Acts of Cardness prompt, BOO.



These little ghosties from Lawn Fawn’s Booyah stamps and dies are so sweet! I stamped a few, mixing up the shapes and faces, then picked two that seemed to get along well together for the “O”s in my BOO. I added a bow tie to one, and a sparkly flower to the other. And let me tell you about my background! I was using distress oxides for a different card background, and had been brushing the excess off on the back of a Scrap ‘n Stamp postcard from an order. As I was cleaning up, I realized I had the start of a spooky sky! I used mermaid lagoon, faded jeans and wilted violet for the background. My large “B” is from Concord & 9th’s Tall Type Alphabet. The secondary banner sentiment is from another fun Lawn Fawn set, Tiny Halloween. I tried different ways of mounting my panel onto the card base – directly onto a white card base, a black mat on a white base, but decided I liked this one, directly onto a black card base, best.



If I knew anyone getting married on Halloween, wouldn’t this be a fun wedding card? 😀  Thanks for checking in today – hope your week’s off to a faBOOlous start!
