Over The Top Swap! SSC225

Pin It Now! This week's Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge helped me over a big hurdle, getting ready for a swap that I'm hosting at my house this weekend!  I managed to combine the challenge with both the party favor and the swap card!

Here's the sketch:
And here's my take:

This is a Dollar Tree wine glass, green on top, clear at the stem.
I wrapped the stem with black tulle, you can find that anywhere - WalMart, JoAnn's...
Traced the base on Pick Your Poison DSP and glued it around the perimeter with 2-Way Glue.  That way if anyone wants to use the glass, it will soak right off.
Add a little Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding Ribbon to make it pop.

Here's the card by itself. 
Card base is 2 layers of the large Scallop Square die, folded, and glued together. It's smaller than a regular 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card, but will fit nicely in that size envelope.
Lots of stamping from Out On A Limb, layered with the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. 
Added black galaxy glitter around the edge, silver galaxy glitter dabbed on the bats' eyes with a super-skinny paintbrush & 2-Way Glue.

The little medallion is a 3/4" strip, first punched with scallop border punch, then cut into strip, then scored every 3/16".  I stamped one spider from Out On A Limb, and blinged her little butt :o)  Layered the medallion on a 1-3/8" circle punch of Pear Pizzazz.

I wanted to make it an obvious all-in-one set, so I clipped the card to the glass with a mini clothespin.
I painted it black with Basic Black re-inker, blew dry with heat embossing tool, then gave it an ample glittering.  

Finally, I wrapped a small cello bag full of candy corn in a 13" square of tulle, tied with Pear Pizzazz seam binding ribbon. 

I hope it's a hit!  I sure had fun making it!

Have a Blessed and Creative Day! Erika
