Hi there!  Hope you’re all having a wonderful Halloween!  I made a card to share with you that fits a lot of challenges online this week.  Sure fun to get some ideas from other places – my favorite are sketches and color challenges and I used BOTH on this card.  I would’ve NEVER thought to put So Saffron & Daffodil Delight together, but I LOVED them together.  I stamped the “Happy Halloween” from the hostess set Wacky Wishes randomly on my So Saffron card stock in Daffodil Delight ink and that really helped pull those two yellows together!  I also did a challenge that meant that you had to include bling, so I took my Stampin’ Up! Basic Rhinestone Jewels and colored them with a permanent black marker.  Another fun challenge requires you to use supplies that are more than 6 months old – mine were my neglected colors So Saffron and Tangerine Tango, as well as the Whisper White Baker’s Twine and all of the circle punches!

One other tip is about the Candy Corn – I made it with a Whisper White 1/2″ circle punch, Tangerine Tango 1″ circle punch, and Daffodil Delight 1-3/8″ circle punch, centered and layered together.  Then you cut wedges to make the individual Candy Corn pieces!  So so simple!  I also rounded all 3 corners so they looked even more like Candy Corn.  Then I put them on Dimensionals and popped them in my little jar!  I just love the Perfectly Preserved stamp set and Cannery framelits in the Holiday Catalog!!!  There are so so many things that aren’t even in the stamp set, that you can fill that little jar with! 🙂

I hope you enjoy this project, as well as the Quick Tip Tuesday on using your embossing folders without the Big Shot.  Such a fun technique!  Give it a try and send me a picture of your creation!  If you use all Stampin’ Up! goodies, I’d love to feature you and your project here as a guest stamper!

      Thanks Rachel! Can’t take credit for the bright colors since they’re from the Colour Q challenge! I LOVE SU!’s framelits dies like the ones I used here for the jar, lid, and banner! Stamp then cut – just like stamp then punch so it’s super easy to line up. Candy Corn is my favorite Halloween candy so I was happy to use this idea that I’d seen floating around out there! 🙂

      Hi Tracey! Thanks so much for your kind words! I didn’t originate the candy corn idea (I have no idea who did) but I am a HUGE fan of candy corn so I thought it appropriate! 🙂

  10. Donna Ellis says:

    Such a darling, festive halloweenie card! Brilliant colors! I like that there are only three candy corns in the jar.

    • Sarah Naber says:

      Donna – What sweet words! Can’t take credit for the colors as that was totally ColourQ challenge’s contribution to the card, but I’m nutso over that jar image! 🙂

  11. BrendaB says:

    Love this cute card! Thanks for the tip on making candy corn, too. And now I need a brayer so I can try your technique with the embossing folders! Thanks for joining us at Frosted Designs.

    • Sarah Naber says:

      Hi Brenda! Oh you’ve gotta try the embossing folder technique – so so simple and fun! You can also use your fingers to rub over it so you don’t need 2 brayers! 🙂

    • Sarah Naber says:

      Suzanne – That jar is my second favorite thing in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog and I just now got around to using it! That should be a crime but it is so quick, easy, and cute that I’ve left it out on my stamp table now! 🙂 The possibilities are endless with what I can fill it with!

  14. Nathalie says:

    cute card. I love dies. Thank you for joining us to Fussy & Fancy challenges.

    • Sarah Naber says:

      Hi Nathalie! Thanks so much for your sweet words! I LOVE dies too and particularly these framelits dies, as they allow you to stamp then position the die over it as you’d like it (similar to how many of us stamp then punch). So quick and easy! 🙂
