Candy Corn Craze

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I have a new post going up over at the "She's A Sassy Lady" blog today and I thought I would share my projects with you guys here too!

Can you believe it is almost October?!! Time just keeps on flying by! I am sooo excited for October! Not only is it my birthday month (October 4) but it's also time for Halloween! I love Halloween! I spent the weekend decorating our home for the upcoming holiday and as I was decorating I started to crave some candy corn. I just love that stuff! It's sweet, colorful, and just perfect! So with visions of candy corn dancing in my head, I flew over to my scrappy desk to start creating. Here is what I came up with:

"Let's Paint The Town"

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio, Bazzill Basics Paper
Patterned Paper: Die Cuts With A View
Ribbon: Hobby Lobby
Rhinestones: Queen & Co.
Stamp: Studio G
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Colored Pencils: Crayola
Corner Punch: EK Success
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression
Cartridge: Slumber Party
Font: Allison's Hand
Adhesive: Helmar

I started out by cutting this card base from the 'Slumber Party' cartridge. I then cut 3 bottles of nail polish from the same cartridge and added 'candy corn' colored paint to the inside of each. I stamped the candy corn underneath that and colored those in with my colored pencils. I'm not much of a artist when it comes to coloring in stamped images, but I tried my best! I used pop dots to pop up the bottles of nail polish for added dimension. I also added some rhinestones to the bottles. I finished off the card with some black ribbon.
 Here is a closer view of my bottles. I wonder what people would think if I painted my toenails in these colors? Would they think I'm crazy?! Tee Hee! Probably so! But how festive would that be?!
 I used my Microsoft Word program on my computer to type up my sentiment for the inside of the card. I printed it out onto some white cardstock and added it to the inside with coordinating patterned paper.
"Candy Corn Cupcake"

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio, Bazzill Basics Paper
Twine: My Craft Spot
Rhinestones: Queen & Co.
Glitter Glue: Stickles (Ranger Industries)
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression
Cartridge: From My Kitchen
Software: Cricut Gypsy
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug
Embossing Folders: Swiss Dots, D'Vine Swirl
Adhesive: Helmar

What Halloween would be complete without a candy corn colored cupcake? I used my Gypsy and the 'From My Kitchen' cartridge to make this shaped card. I added a bit of embossing for texture.
 I added Stickles to the cupcake liner and the cherry for some shine.
"Candy Corn Kisses, Halloween Wishes"

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio
Patterned Paper: Die Cuts With A View
Trim: source unknown (got these at a discount store called Surplus City)
Rhinestones: Queen & Co.
Thread: Coats & Clark
Stamp: My Craft Spot
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression
Cartridge: Smiley Cards
Software: Cricut Gypsy
Adhesive: Helmar

For this card, I cut out a large piece of candy corn using the Smiley Cards cartridge on my Gypsy. I then layered a mixture of yellow, orange, and white trim over the top of it to create a unique piece of candy corn. I also did a bit of stitching with my sewing machine. This card was really simple and came together in about 20 minutes.
 I stamped the inside of the card with a stamp from Kimberly over at 'My Craft Spot.'
 I love the texture the trims give! I wish I could take all of you scrappers with me to this store called 'Surplus City' in my town! Y'all would have a fit! There is an aisle about 50 yards long STUFFED with trim, ribbon, lace, etc. It is like a scrappy heaven! LOL
I hope you have enjoyed these 'candy corn' themed projects and that they will inspire you to create some of your own! Have a safe Halloween!
Happy Scrappin'!!!
Pin It!
