Hi stampers!  I'm calling today Stamperday instead of Saturday:-)  I've had little time to stamp this week with not feeling well and or work!  So, I finally got to sit down to my desk after dinner with the in laws tonight!  I have a lot of challenges I want to play with this weekend!  The first one is one I have just been itching to work on!!!

As soon as I saw this:

over at  Colour Q I just knew I wanted to make something candy corn!  Don't these colors just scream candy corn????  Now, I don't actually like to eat it (I'll take some chocolate though thankyouverymuch) but I think it's cute and festive!  I did have to look it up to see what order the colors went in though, haha.  I also double dipped a bit and combined this color challenge with the sketch challenge at Inkspirations:

I don't usually combine challenges BUT I'm short on time this weekend since I had to work and take a nap today:-)  So here is my combo candy corn card....say that five times fast!

Stampin' Supplies:

Stamps:  Spooky bingo bits, teeny tiny wishes
Paper:  Whisper white, basic black, basic gray, tangerine tango, crushed curry (retired), brights DSP stack
Ink:  Tangerine tango, basic black
Accessories:  Circle punches, 3" circle die, pennant punch

I was so excited to use the pennant punch to make my candy corn!  All I did was adhere three strips of CS to a sheet of copy paper and then punch them out!  Looking back, I totally should have hit them with some versamark and iridescent ice embossing powder to really make them sparkle! Oh well, too late now since it's done and almost 10pm haha.  I was also happy to pull out my Spooky bingo bits set!  It was also a good thing I had some crushed curry laying around (fyi it's textured cardstock).  I do wish I had added some sparkle. 

And now back to the DH cleaned up the yard today and is making a fire out back.  I sure wish we had some chocolate and smore's fixin's!  They sure would be good on a chilly fall night!  But I sure don't want to go to the store this late....and in my PJ's:-)  Happy stamping!
