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!
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 chocolate...my 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!
