Bag of Candy

Hello, everyone.  I decided to make another Christmas bag of candy as a stocking stuffer.   This is another project I created to participate in the "12 Days of Christmas" challenges going on at Mark's Finest Papers - here is the tutorial.   My goal is to make it through all 12 challenges.  I filled the bag with mini chocolate bars.  Now don't laugh at the colours - they are definitely non-traditional Christmas colours.  I wanted to make something to match the candy bars so I went with a fall palette.

Here are the supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Reindeer, sentiment, snowflake (Hero Arts), word "enjoy" (Studio G)
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Colouring medium:  Prismacolor pencils
  • Cardstock:  Recollections, Stampin' Up
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls
  • Dies:  Spellbinders Labels Eighteen
  • Punch:  Snowflake (unmarked/unknown)
  • Ribbon:  Dollarama
I would like to enter the following challenges:

Gosh Kitty, you are on a roll, love all the gorgeous goodies you have made. They all look delish and makes me feel like having a chocolate which I don't normally eat.
Have gone through my dies not much to get rid of at the mo...had a candy couple months ago and forgot I put most of them in there, will keep you in mind though.xx
