Trick or Sweet Gift


Here is a simple but nice Halloween card I made using Taylored Expressions' new set Trick or Sweet (only stamping is the sentiment). I used sticky dots to adhere the Black Ice Glitter that comes in the Halloween Key Ingredients package in the store, as well as all the cardstock, brads & patterned paper.

I used a template for a 3 x 3 box shared by fellow Taylored Expressions DT member Laurie Schmidlin on SCS a few weeks ago. I LOVE how great this patterned paper shows off all the traditional colors of Halloween and in a trendy paisley pattern!

And here is the little gift inside the box, a silicone charm bracelet which I used 5 of the cupcake creatures on polyshrink & adhered to the centers of the parts purchased at Michael's. These are the same type of charms that are popular for the holes in crocs (or faux crocs which are what I have - hot pink ones) maybe I will show them to you some day with charms on them. Underneath the charm bracelet is stamped white tissue with stamps from the set to finish off the package. Edited to Add: Once I sand my polyshrink in a criss-cross hatch pattern, I color with prismacolor pencils (koh-i-noor work too-I used to use sharpies but not anymore as they don't blend very well) which give more of a vibrant color & then heat set to shrink.
