My Time Made Easy - Grab A Cup

Happy Sunday everyone! I have another new template to share with you from My Time Made Easy's October release. It's called Grab A Cup.
I'm giving this to one of the secretaries at work because she introduced me to these berry flavored candy corn. They were on her desk and I tried one...yum-o!! So I thought this Halloween cup would look nice on her desk with these candy corn in it. I used black for the base and the decorative pieces are from the new Traditional Halloween digital paper. I thought this sort of looked like a cauldron! I put the candy corn in a bag and tied it with a ribbon. I made a tag using SU's tag punches. I used the Spooky Surprise stamp set to stamp the sentiment. I have to tell you that I did something daring for me....this sentiment is one long sentiment and I cut it apart! It was like cutting off my finger! LOL!! I was so nervous about cutting it because I've never done that before! But I didn't feel like masking it every time I stamped it, so out came the scissors and snip, snip it went! Then I was able to stack the words so they fit on the tag. I stamped the candy corn twice and colored them like the real ones. I cut them out and placed them on the tag. Here's a closeup of the tag. I really like the way this tag came out...with my new courage to cut apart my stamps! LOL!! You can now purchase these products at My Time Made Easy. The October release is available at the store. Think of all the possibilities for this template. The girls have been presenting it in a variety of ways. You can see all of them in the MTME Gallery! So much inspiration all in one place!
