Ghost in a Jar, Sweets in a bag?

Nom, nom, nom.... always quite happy to find interesting sweeties appearing around Halloween, but I had to make do with Haribo today because there isn't much Halloweeny occuring in the UK shops yet. I know, cos I have been round them all searching for cool spooky stuff! Luckily Witt & Sass have launched something awesome for my Halloween Treat bags, the Ghost in a Jar Stamp Set!

Immediately thought this would be handy for tags and a brilliant way to use up my "alcohol inks on glossy card experiments". So I stamped directly onto the glossy card (Just with normal memento) and then cut them out to make awesome magical jars! (Obvs they are not just for tags, the team have made lots of awesome projects using this set here.)

I also stamped the cork end onto white paper and coloured them with copics, then cut them out and stuck them onto the bottles.  I similarly did this with the eyeballs and bones. The ghosts and slugs I stamped directly onto velum instead and left them white. I coloured up some paper with goldy brown distress inks and stamped the labels on to that, adding my own handwritten greeting, and some of the the wording that comes in the set.

When I had finished the bottles I found some orange, green and purple balloon ribbon to add on like a curly rosette so I could staple them directly onto my sweety treat bags. What do you think?  I'm going to make up the other bags when I can get some spooky sweets to pop inside, but here is a messy picture, with all the tags on!

Admit it, you are really only here for the tiny broomsticks arent you? lol. Tim Holtz made me buy them!
