CI Paint~ Inspired By: Black and Orange

Good Morning Bloggers!!!
It is time for another fun
Inspired By Challenge 
over at
Creative Inspirations Paint!!
This weeks Challenge~
Inspired By: Black and Orange

Since Halloween is right around the corner and my kiddo's LOVE to get yummy
treats, I made 2 gift bags for them filled with a Hershey Bar.
Just a little something to put in their lunches

So here they both are....I used Kraft bags from
The Kraft Journal and yes I know this is a stretch but their challenge this week is
Quick as a Bunny~ I used Tracy's tag as my inspiration~
Making a gift as well as using a ribbon and twine

Here is a close-up of the first bag...
I received this adorable spiderweb from my crafty friend Nana over at
 and I knew I wanted to use it for something altered. I painted it with 
Onxy CI Paints, attached some Trendy Twine in Black Licorice running the twine down to my adorable spider....Isn't he too cute with those googly eyes??
Since he was alittle different color than the orange in my ribbon and stamping, I painted his
legs with Pumpkin CI Paint
Love that chevron border I added on the bottom??
I used The Alley Way Stamps~Cover Up set
and Distress ink in Rusty Hinge and Black Soot
For my sentiment I used CI Paints Deliquesce Black Embossing Powder,
 My Creative Time~Mixed Holiday Sentiments and stamped it on the Tiny Tag die
all attached with a clip that was purchased from The Kraft Journal and 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon in Tuxedo and Harvest Orange
Here is a close-up of the second bag...
Again most of the products are the same...the only things different in this bag is I used
The Alley Way Stamps~Jibber Jabber set for the polka dot border
The Alley Way Stamps~Ghoul Friend Set for the ghost
CI Paints in Fairy Dust for the ghost (you can see the shimmer the paints make by the glare from the picture..LOL)
and chipboard letters painted in pumpkin.

I hope you like my treat bags and will play along with us over at
Creative Inspirations Paint!
Remember you do not need CI Paints on your project but if you have them we would
LOVE to see how you use them!!!
