Candy Corn Halloween Card

Hi crafty friends!
Today I would like to share a project that I created using some fabulous dies and stamps that can be found in the Dies R Us Store

I'm really looking forward to Halloween so I felt the need to make a Halloween themed card. It's my favorite holiday to craft for. What's yours? I also really love all the candy involved with Halloween if I'm being honest haha! It's a definite bonus!! We typically buy candy pretty early here and then are so tired of it by the time the big day arrives that one lucky trick or treater normally ends up with whatever is left in our bowl at the end of the night. 

When I saw these cute Candy Corn Add On's for the How You Bean set from Lawn Fawn, I knew they needed a special place in my house. Here is the card that I created to share with you today:


This was so super simple to put together and really quite easy which would make it pretty great if you had to mass produce them. I created my A2 card base with some black cardstock and added some fun orange polka dot paper on top. I used the Stitched Journaling Card die from Lawn Fawn and cut out a piece from white and black cardstock, cut off a strip of the black and adhered it to the white to give the illusion of a shelf/counter. I stamped out that fun little mason jar from the How You Bean? stamp set and added the candy corns from the How You Bean Candy Corn Add On to the center. I wrapped some baker's twine around my jar and added it to my card front. I used the Scalloped Treat Box Haunted House Add On to cut out a couple of bats to add to my card. I heat embossed my greeting in white onto some black cardstock, notched the end and popped it up with some foam tape. I added an enamel dot to finish it off. I love how it turned out!! Candy corn with no guilt or calories?? Win!

Don't forget to come join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.

Sketch N Scrap Card Sketch #106

Hey crafty friends!!
Happy Wednesday!!
Today starts a new card sketch challenge over at 
Here is a look at the second card sketch for September courtesy of Lisa:


Here is my take on the sketch:


Yep! Halloween on the brain! lol! I went looking through my paper pads and found one that had some fun bright colors as well as a silver glittery paper scrap. I layered the patterned papers on my card and then stamped my greeting onto some white cardstock, layered it on top of some black cardstock and then popped it up with foam tape. I finished it off with some silver stars. So super easy but I think it turned out great!! It's pretty flat too so gotta love that when it comes time to mail it :)

You Had Me At Pumpkin Spice

Hey crafty peeps!
I hope you are having a fabulous day!
Today I am back with another card to share with you that I made with a couple of challenges in mind. Two days in a row of posting?? I hope that means my mojo is back!! 

The challenges that I am sharing my card in are:


and

Here is a look at the card that I created for the above challenges:


I cut out some patterned paper with leaves and some Kraft cardstock using the Card Mat Dies from Jaded Blossom. I cut off a portion of the patterned paper and layered it on top of my Kraft cardstock, matching up the stitching. I embossed my greeting with white embossing powder onto some orange cardstock, layered it onto some teal cardstock and added it to my card. I wrapped some twine around, tied a bow and then added everything to my card base. I stamped out that sweet little girl from Stamp Anniething and colored her in with my Copic markers. Once I had her colored in, I cut her out using my Scan N Cut 2 and popped her up onto the front of my card with more foam tape. I finished off my card with a few sequins. I think she is absolutely adorable!!

A Harvest of Blessings

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are having a marvelous Monday!
It's raining off and on in my area so that makes it a perfect day to try and get some crafting done right? I was able to pull out some supplies and make a quick little card for a few challenges.


I started out with a cream colored A2 card base. I cut out a scalloped layer from some blue cardstock using a die from MFT (all supplies are listed at the bottom of this post). I used another die from MFT for my cream top panel and layered a fence and some rolling hills on top. I stamped out my images and colored them in with my Copics and paper pieced his little sweater. I stamped my greeting at the top with some brown ink and placed my mouse and apples on the panel. I wrapped some twine around the bottom and adhered my image panel on top of the blue scalloped piece.

The challenges I will be entering this card into are:

Here is a look at the layout I created based on the sketch:


I came across this photo that I took of my hubby and son last year and knew I needed to put it on a layout so I could display it in the living room this year. I pulled some papers from the Thrilling Collection from Authentique and a few Halloween embellishments that I had in my stash. I added my title using Alphabet Dies 2 from Jaded Blossom and added a little bit of journaling underneath. So incredibly easy to put together!!
