Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe we are already into the second half of October already?? I have been busy making a lot of Halloween treats for my nieces and nephew. Two of my sisters asked if I would make tag toppers for the 2x8" cellophane bags from Stampin' Up! - 70 to be exact!
Here I am crankin' out all these candy treats and wouldn't you know, this week's theme at TGIF Challenges is a sweet candy theme!
I don't know about you, but I have mixed thoughts on candy corn. I'm not even sure if I really like it or not... I prefer Kit Kat and Milky Way bars, but I see candy corn just hanging out in a bowl, I just snack at it. But I'm not even sure if I really like it or if I just eat it because it's there... it's a love/hate relationship.
Ugh... I never should've bought any.
But I needed to buy some to snack on while I used this cute candy corn stamp from Jar of Haunts.
To get the look of the piled up candy corn, I took the candy corn stamp from the Jar of Haunts stamp set and stamped in on computer paper. I then cut it out as best as I could around each piece of candy corn to make a mask. I recommend using computer paper because it is thinner and the images will blend better without too much spacing in between.
For the falling pieces of candy corn, I inked a few of the pieces using Memento Black Ink and then cleaned off the excess. This allowed me to cluster one, two or several pieces. I colored the pieces in using Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Markers. I added some of the Basic Black/Basic Gray twine from the Halloween Night Baker's Twine. I finished the card with a sentiment from the Spooky Fun stamp set.
I hope you like my "sweet" candy creation! I'm also adding this card to the following two challenges:
I REALLY hope you play along with us this week at TGIF! Check out our main page here to see what the rest of the design team made!
Have a great weekend!
