One Sheet Wonder Nugget Labels

Do you have your Halloween treats planned yet? I made up some little treats while my friend Carmen was over one day. I love to make the covered Hershey Nuggets so here was my plan. I decided to make some One Sheet Wonder Nugget Labels. You start with Papertrey's White Label Sheets, the perfect size to cover the Nuggets. I compared these to regular address labels.....the color is a brighter white which I loved. I started stamping each label with a Halloween sentiment from PTI's Spooky Sweets stamp set in Palette Hybrid Black Ink. I kept on stamping Halloween images all over the sheets, just as you would with a typical One Sheet Wonder project (the idea is to stamp an overall sheet with a design, then when you're done, each individual piece will stamped randomly). Some of these images are from Spooky Sweets, some from Spooky Sweets II. The two sets work great together. The ink colors I used were SU! Pumpkin Pie and Kiwi Kiss and, Papertrey Plum Pudding. I used a grey ink for the spider webs.
I decided I wanted a vintage look to my labels, so I went in with some Ranger Distress Ink and my Papertrey Guidelines set and stamped some random square images.
Zoom in on the photo below to see my two finished One Sheet Wonder Nugget Labels. Each label sheet has 30 labels. Here's a close up of the finished Nuggets. All you have to do is unpeel the labels and stick them onto a Nugget. This would be a fun, fun project for the kids to do. You could wrap them up in Papertrey's little tins, glassine sacks, coffee bags, etc. Great teacher gifts!
I decided to set mine out for guests to munch on (I have found that I am my own best guest, whaddya know??!). I found this old wax crayon tin at a garage sale for a steal. The colors were perfect for a Halloween container. So in went all my Nuggets. It sits by my 2-tiered basket in the center of my dining room table. See the fun label embellishment?
Ohhh, you must zoom in on the photo below. Carmen and I played around with some black embossing powder and the results were stunning!! I embossed the big round label from Spooky Sweets II onto Plum Pudding cardstock. I cut it out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities circle and mounted that to a SU! Kiwi Kiss Nestabilities cut scallop circle. I layered on a *Creepy Treats* embossed sentiment. The black, shiny embossing looks kind of Gothic and Martha and Vintage all rolled into one. I love it!! To finish off my label, I colored a regular wooden clothespin with a black Copic Sketch Marker. I allowed it to dry just a little bit then added some purple sticker sequins and a fruity punchy Papertrey Plum Pudding Luxe Satin ribbon. The label just clips onto my vintage tin with the clothespin.
Here's an even better shot of the embossing. Isn't it just so pretty??? I'm kinda hooked on the embossing right now. It's so pretty on holiday projects this time of year.
So there ya have it folks! Anyone want a Nugget for breakfast?? I'm sure they go good with coffee!

Michelle I have a question about a previous post but am not sure how to email you. It's about your Holiday Gift Ensemble on 9/12/08. I have never bought any Spellbinder dies and I'd like to purchase the one you used in that project but there are so many (Classic long, small, Classic). I just want to make sure I get the right one. Can you help me? I'd REALLY appreciate it!!!
