Sweet Treat Shaker

At first when I saw this background stamp called All Hallow's Eve, I wasn't interested in getting it until I saw what you could do with it! I selected the image from the BG that I wanted to feature in my card and inked up only that area. For today's card, I decided to use the skull. I saw the skull featured in the catalog where they used the rhinestone brads for his eyes, I kind of wanted to try that out. I punched out the circle on my card with the 1 3/4" circle punch which was the perfect size to insert my sweet treat cup through. These sweet treat cups are 12 for only $2.95. There are many other uses for these cups other than what I did here. I will try to create more samples to show you. Here's a side view of the cup. I decided to fill it with some seed beads to make it a shaker. You can see the skull as the background.
Here's what the inside looks like. I used a piece of DSP from the Night and Day Specialty pack. This piece covers the hole that I punched out and where I inserted the sweet treat cup. The image inside the card came from the set called Twick or Tweet.
Happy Aloha Tuesday! I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend. I'm exhausted from all that kit making and I'm still not done! Enjoy your short week! Thanks for taking time to view my project today!

Wow, Teri, you come up with the neatest things - I don't even recall seeing this in the catty.
Thanks for sharing this card with the beads - this is a different twist than the others I've seen online.
