Sweet Candy Corn!

One of my favorite things to do is using stamps for ideas other than what was intended. This card is a perfect example. I was browsing my Papertreyink stamps for a sentiment when I glanced at Take A Bough...I saw candy corn instead of bough ornaments! Maybe it's just that time of year...lol. Super simple 4x4 card. Starting with a Kraft cardstock card base and stamping the "Sweet" sentiment from Piece of Cake with watermark ink adds a bit of interest! I applied three ink colors liberally to the stamp, then went in with a sponge to muddy up where the inks met. Clear as mud? If you have any questions, please email. All products used are Papertreyink! This card will accompany a bag of candy corn for a special neighbor! SWEET!
Are you having a good week so far? I hope so. Tomorrow I will have another out of the box, clean & simple holiday card for you! Take good care! Thanks so much for stopping by!

I like this so much. I never would have thought to put that yellow with kraft. It's such a warm, yet subtle look.

Really cute card. I really like the colors. The ribbon and button are the perfect finishing touches.

I'm so glad you posted this! I saw it last night trying to upload my own to PTI (a disaster if there ever was one!) and wanted to tell you how much I loved your idea. Too cool for school! Soon as I get my desk cleaned up I want to try it for Thanksgiving table settings. Thank you! Hope you win - it's a great idea!
