Happy Halloween!

It is getting to be that time of year - when I start seeing Candy corn all over the stores! It is my favorite Halloween candy.

It inspired my latest card featuring the Stamps of Life products.

I began by stamping with Versamark on yellow cardstock "Happy Halloween" to create a soft background. I really wanted the centerpiece to stand out so I didn't want any competition.

I die cut from black cardstock a jar shape from the Sizzix Jar Framelits and Stamps set.

I stamped the outline of the jar with white pigment ink and let it dry. While waiting, I stamped about a dozen candy corn outlines in black dye ink.

I filled in the candy corn with different patterns in orange and yellow. This came from the CandyCorn2cut stamp set. It comes with a die so I could cut out all the pieces.

I glued down several candy corn and finished by adding the word, "Hi," spelled out in candy corn.

I die cut the lid of the jar with orange cardstock and stamped the outline with white ink.

Lastly, I added some yellow twine at the top of the jar and glued it all down.



Thanks for stopping by!
