Me?! WOOHOO!!

YAY!! Miss Bad Sherry herself asked me if I wanted to be a guest designer for Rubbernecker Stamps.....uhhhhh......YES, DUH!! LOL! I had the hardest time picking out my stamps, geeezzz, so many beauties to choose from! When I finally whittled it down, I was giddy waiting for them to arrive! Oh, BTW, enough of me and my stamps, LOL...ARRRGG! Its Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker!! Dang, I've always wanted to say that, LOL! You can find all the deets on the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog!

I think y'all probably know by now that I love Halloween and I melted when I saw this sweet little stamp, it's by Stamp Oasis and it's called Little Lovin's Trick or Treats. I made a candy holder to hold this package of wax bottle juice drinks, remember those? I used to love these, I haven't had one since I was small, I think I need to break into these and try one!! The tall package with what looks like tiny M&M's inside is actually chocolate sunflower seeds! Ever heard of that? Not me, until I saw them at Cracker Barrell and snatched them up for a paper craft project, LOL!
For the wax bottle holder I cut my eggplant cardstock 6x11 and scored at 2 1/2" from the top, again at 4 1/4", 3/4" and again at 3 5/8". I covered the front with my Cosmo Cricket Haunted and Halloween Words paper by Junkitz. I matted the Copic colored image on black, glittered the edge with Martha Stewart Onyx glitter and adhered it to the top flap. I adhered the bottle package inside with mono adhesive. I tied some Cosmo Cricket ribbon on a t!m holtz clip and use that to keep the holder closed. All the candy in the baskets is colored with my Spica glitter pens.
I wrapped the top of the choc sunflower seed container with cardstock, paper and ribbon. I made the tag from cardstock and Cosmo paper, I put some black Magic Mesh on it, a screw brad and a jumbo eyelet. I stamped the trick or treaters and cut out little Frankie, colored him up and put him on the tag with Dimensionals.
Have a happy Tuesday y'all, thanks for stopping by!!
