A Little Pickled Toad

One of my favorite stamp sets for Halloween is Magic Potions. With "Commotion Potion, Guaranteed to Quiet the Voices Inside your Head", and "Bat Wing Brewing Powder", it is perfect for Halloween decor, parties, etc. My very talented friend, Diana Veenendaal, used Cricut Craft room and the Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridges to create this Pickled Toad candy holder. In Cricut Craft Room, she combined a web overlay and some shapes to create the base. The other shapes are from the Close to My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge and are sized for the Magic Potions stamps. If you don't know it already, many of the shapes in the stamp sets correspond with shapes on one of the three cartridges. The stamp carrier sheet will even tell you which cartridge, what page of the guidebook the image is on, and what size to set your Cricut to for perfect sizing. How's that for Faster, Simpler, and Easier?

Diana was kind enough to let me make one. Here it is from assembly to finish.

Did I say already that Magic Potions is one of my favorite Halloween sets? Well, I'm saying it again. Make sure to sponge around the green glitter paper in black ink It's a great finishing touch.

Don't you want to share a little Pickled Toad with someone you love?
